Royal LePage report says pace of rising home prices slowed in second

first_imgTORONTO – The pace of rising home prices slowed in Canada in the second quarter due to softness in the Greater Toronto Area market, according to a report by Royal LePage.Royal LePage chief executive Phil Soper said Tuesday new federal mortgage stress-test measures helped slow the real estate market.“It was a spring market that never blossomed,” Soper said in a statement.“The new federal mortgage stress-test measures slowed the market to a standstill in much of the country, as some families adjusted their expectations in a world with lower borrowing capacity, and others not impacted by the OSFI regulations moved to the sidelines, adopting a ‘wait and see what happens to home prices’ approach.”However, in its outlook, Royal LePage said it expected the aggregate price of a home in Canada in the third quarter to be up 2.2 per compared with a year ago.“The market has begun to absorb and adjust to the new realities; we expect an uptick in sales volumes and prices during the second half of 2018,” Soper said.The Royal LePage national house price composite showed the price of a home in Canada increased 2.0 per cent year-over-year to $613,968 in the second quarter of 2018.That compared with a 6.2 per cent year-over-year increase in the first quarter of the year.The real estate brokerage firm said the slowdown in the rise in prices came as some regions in the Greater Toronto Area saw prices fall compared with a year ago.The national median price in the second quarter of a two-storey home rose 0.8 per cent year-over-year to $720,504, while the median price of a bungalow climbed 1.8 per cent to $512,979. The price of condominiums rose 8.1 per cent year-over-year to $435,421.In a separate report, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada said the market for homes over $1 million in Montreal in the first half of the year hit a record as it gained 24 per cent compared with a year ago.In Toronto, Sotheby’s said sales of homes over $1 million were down 46 per cent compared with a year ago, however the firm noted that 2018 sales volume trended in line with 2015’s pre-surge levels.Home sales over $1 million in Vancouver fell 19 per cent compared with a year ago, while Calgary saw a drop of 11 per cent.last_img read more

Review Panel says police are a de facto part of the mental

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. Coroners Service’s Death Review Panel has released a report looking at how police play a role in the mental health system.According to the Review Panel, after examining the deaths of people who died during or within 24 hours following contact with police in B.C., it was determined that police are a de facto part of the mental health system.The panel is suggesting that the role of policing should be implemented into the provincial mental health strategy, highlighting that more assessment and training opportunities exist. Panel Chair, Michael Egilson, says it is important to acknowledge that police play a role and that they should be incorporated in a province-wide mental health and addictions strategy.“We need to drive home the point that the police have become part of the mental health system and that their role needs to be acknowledged, supported and incorporated into the larger provincial mental health and addictions strategy.”The Death Review Panel included 19-panel experts who are professionals with expertise in policing, policing oversight, public health, health services, mental health and addictions, and Indigenous health.For more information on the Death Review Panel, you can visit the Government’s website.last_img read more

Germany arrests suspect over alleged Sri Lanka war crimes

Sri Lanka’s civil war ended in 2009 when government forces defeated the rebels, who fought to create a separate state for ethnic minority Tamils. (Colombo Gazette) Prosecutors say he belonged to the Tamil Tigers from 2006-2009. They allege that, in 2008, he tied up 16 soldiers and guarded them as they were driven to a site where they were shot. He was arrested Wednesday in the Duesseldorf area, suspected of committing war crimes and membership in a foreign terrorist organization. German authorities have arrested a Sri Lankan man suspected of involvement in killing captured Government soldiers as a member of the Tamil Tigers rebel (LTTE) group a decade ago, the Associated Press reported.Federal prosecutors said a judge ordered Thursday the 36-year-old, identified only as Sivatheeban B. because of German privacy rules, detained pending a potential indictment. read more

Feeding babies peanuts early may prevent future allergy study finds

first_imgThe Government is reviewing its advice warning parents not to feed babies peanuts and eggs after a new study found that eating small amounts of the foods at an early age may ward off future allergies.Scientists at Imperial College London found that children who ate peanuts between the ages of four and 11 months had a 70 per cent reduced risk of developing an allergy to the nuts compared with children who ate them for the first time when they were older.Children who started eating egg between the ages of four and six months had a 40 per cent reduced risk in comparison.Food allergies affect around one in 20 children in the UK, with peanut and egg intolerance the two most common types.Current advice cautions parents against giving infants allergenic foods such as egg, peanut, fish and wheat, which can cause an malfunctioning immune system to over-react, triggering rashes, swelling, vomiting and wheezing.The new research, which analysed the data from 146 studies involving more than 200,000 children, was commissioned by the UK Food Standards Agency.Professor Anthony Frew, an expert in allergy and respiratory medicine at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, said the study showed that earlier introduction of allergen foods may be appropriate. “Much anxiety and some harm was caused by the UK Government Committee on Toxicology’s 1998 advice on peanut avoidance in high-risk infants being extrapolated to the wider low-risk population,” he said.“Midwives and mothers’ groups assumed that in view of the targeted advice, it might be a good idea for all parents to avoid introducing these foods regardless of their child’s risk of becoming allergic. eggs Eating eggs early could yield a 40 per cent risk reduction of allergyCredit:Alamy Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

IRA Hyde Park bomb suspect lives life of luxury while British veterans

The Telegraph tracked Mr Downey, 66, down to his newly-built, four-bedroom house with its own private beach in County Donegal in Ireland. Relatives of the murdered soldiers spoke of their disgust that John Downey, acquitted after receiving a ‘comfort’ letter, is able to enjoy his retirement while, in contrast, Army veterans of the Troubles remain under criminal investigation. The IRA’s Hyde Park bombing suspect is living in a luxury beach front home, having transferred ownership to his wife after being sued over the atrocity.  Irish Land registry documents show that Mr Downey removed his name from ownership of the house, worth £300,000, on June 7 last year, just as lawyers for victims of Hyde…

Union Budget 2018 a hit and miss affair for tech industry Brands

first_imgThe Great India BudgetIBTimes IndiaFinance minister Arun Jaitley was certainly the man of the hour on Thursday as he presented the Union Budget for 2018-19. A lot of gullible taxpayers’ eyes were peeled onto the TV screens or mobile phones as the minister covered the provisions of the Budget for various categories.The technology industry was an important aspect of the Budget 2018-19, as Jaitley touched upon new age technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, and machine learning. Smartphones, which account for huge interest among consumers as well as manufacturers, took a hit in the budget.In his budget speech, Jaitley raised the customs duty on mobile phones to 20 percent from existing 15 percent. This was done with the aim to boost jobs in India with local manufacturing. The decision doesn’t sit well with some brands and consumers who will now have to pay a higher price for imported phones, such as iPhones. iPhonesApple Press KitBut the hike in the customs duty doesn’t affect much the OEMs that are already manufacturing in India. Brands like Nokia, OnePlus, and Micromax are some examples.Here’s how the major tech leaders reacted on the Union Budget 2018-19 on the whole.”HMD Global continues its strong emphasis on PM Modi’s Make in India campaign. While the import duties for mobile phones increased to 20%, along with a 15% duty on key components, this will have a minimum impact on our business, as all of our current portfolio of Nokia phones are manufactured in India,” Ajey Mehta, vice president India, HMD Global, said in an email statement.”Since the announcement of Make in India program 3 years back, over 85% of smartphones the sold in the country are now produced locally. So, this is opportune time to introduce next set of regulations to attract investment in the manufacturing sector and establish India as a global hub for electronics. At OnePlus, we are fully committed to the Indian market and welcome the proposed regulations. Currently, all OnePlus smartphones are produced locally and we are already exploring ways to further increase the share of local manufacturing to ensure there is minimal cost impact of any new regulations to the end customer,” Vikas Agarwal, general manager at OnePlus India, said. OnePlus India GM Vikas AgarwalFacebook/OnePlus India”We are fully committed to the Indian market and welcome the proposed regulations” – OnePlus GM Vikas Agarwal”The increase in customs duty on Mobiles will encourage local manufacturing. As India is becoming the global hub for manufacturing, the measures taken by the government will surely grow confidence amongst the manufacturers and I strongly believe that this will further create business and human resource opportunities as well,” Rajesh Aggarwal, Micromax co-founder, said in a statement.”Micromax is deeply connected on the Make in India initiative with 3 running factories and we support this” – Micromax co-founder Rajesh Aggarwal”The government’s measures towards the import duty on printed circuit boards (PCBs), camera modules, connectors and other components that go into making smartphones, will boost the Make in India initiative and will relentlessly pursue in curbing imports and building value addition in the country. Micromax is deeply connected on the Make in India initiative with 3 running factories and we support this,” Aggarwal added.But some brands do share concern over the hike on the customs duty and the challenges faced by brands for local production.”The increase in customs duty from 15% to 20% will definitely hamper the cost to the customer, especially when it comes to getting repairs for the high-end devices. While the increase in customs duty on handsets will compel brands to manufacture or assemble more in India, still there is not great support for local ecosystem for manufacturing spare parts. And this lack of local spare part manufacturers will mean a tough situation for mobile handset brands. Hence a brand is compelled to import most of the spare parts and customers have to bear some burden of it.” Syed Tajuddin, CEO of Coolpad India, said in a statement.”The increase in customs duty from 15% to 20% will definitely hamper the cost to the customer” – Coolpad CEO Syed TajuddinBeyond smartphones, the television sector is also a part of the tech industry and brands share their concern with the latest Budget as well as GST slabs.”The increase in customs duty on the certain parts of TV might affect the manufacturing ecosystem adversely. We need the government to help in creating an improved local manufacturing and a better component ecosystem for the consumer electronics manufacturers as well. With focus on growth, it is the budget to look forward that would add an impetus to India’s growth story,” Micromax’s Aggarwal noted in his comments.”The Government is very determined to ensure the success of the Make in India initiative. Therefore we welcome our Finance Minister’s decision to increase customs duty on CBU of television, which is a good sign for boosting the domestic industry. We hope the Finance Minister will also reduce GST on television to 18% subsequently,” Avneet Singh Marwah, director and CEO of Super Plastronics Pvt. Ltd. (Kodak HD LED TV India), said in a statement. Director and CEO of Super Plastronics Pvt. Ltd. – Avneet Singh MarwahPR handout”We hope the Finance Minister will also reduce GST on television to 18% subsequently” – Director and CEO of SPPL Avneet Singh MarwahFinally, some robust initiatives such as creating hundreds and thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots across rural India is more than welcomed by the e-commerce industry.”With a focus on technology, the finance minister has provided great support to the digital industry. The government’s decision to create 500,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in rural India will enable broadband access to those with no or little access to the realm of the internet. This will help grow the digital commerce industry and encourage more people to adopt cashless economy,” said Sanjay Sethi, CEO & co-founder, ShopClues. Stay tuned for more comments on the Union Budget 2018-19.

Quader alleges BNP plotting to create anarchy

first_imgAL general secretary Obaidul QuaderAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said the BNP along with its fundamentalist ally is conspiring to create anarchy in the country, centring the forthcoming parliamentary polls.“A peaceful environment is prevailing in the country. But the BNP wants to create unrest centring the upcoming national polls. The BNP will not be given any chance to create chaos,” he said at a rally at Chawkbazar in city’s old part.The AL general secretary distributed leaflets there on the sixth day of their week-long mass contact programme for showcasing development works of the government and highlighting acts of terrorism and violence alleged by the BNP-Jamaat ally.Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the common people will give a befitting reply if the BNP resorts to any terrorist and violent activities like that of 2014 to foil the next polls.He said there is no political crisis in the country. But the BNP has the crisis as their leaders blame each other for being ‘agents’ of the government. Besides, they create violence at their own rallies, he added.Quader said, “The BNP couldn’t wage any movement in the last 10 years for 10 minutes. They also will not be able to wage any movement against the government in the next one month. BNP has now been turned into a dead river and tide will never come in the dead river. That is why they are taking preparation to create chaos centering the polls.”The ruling party general secretary urged the party activists to “remain alert against any conspiracy and to resist them (BNP) along with the countrymen if they create any sabotage like 2014.”About the comments of BNP’s senior leader Moudud Ahmad on movement, Quader said, “He (Moudud) has been talking from August about changes. But, the people have not seen any changes till now. We don’t know when the ‘one month’ will end.”He said, “BNP chief Begum Zia went to the court to protect her residence in cantonment as per the advice of Moudud. But she lost her home according to the court verdict. And now he is giving advices to Mirza Fakhrul.”About comments of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the minister said BNP is now a self declared bankrupt and a corrupt organization through amending the clause 7 of their party’s constitution.The AL leader said, “We should work together to bring the government of prime minister Sheikh Hasina in power again for the continuation of the ongoing development projects. There is no alternative to Sheikh Hasina to protect the independence of the country and the spirit of the liberation war.”He urged the residents of the city’s old part to vote for ‘Boat’, the election symbol of Awami League, for better livelihoods.last_img read more
