He’s reportedly said First Nations want certainty of a law, not a regulation, which can be changed or rescinded at any time in the future by cabinet.Read the entire Vancouver Sun article here.With files from The Vancouver Sun The Vancouver Sun is reporting Natural Gas Minister Rich Coleman says he has prepared new cabinet regulations that would effectively ban any company from building a natural gas pipeline and then, in the future, trying to “reverse” it to carry oil to the coast.The Sun story says the move is primarily to address concerns raised by First Nations whose territories could be impacted by natural gas pipelines built to feed proposed liquefied natural gas projects on the northwest coast.Many First Nations are said to be more agreeable to the idea of a natural gas pipeline than an oil pipeline, because a natural gas spill is less environmentally damaging than oil spill.- Advertisement -The ban is also a warning to oil and gas companies – they can’t use a natural gas project as a foot in the door to a pipeline, and then later turn around and sell it to another company with oil ambitions.The government received legal advice it could issue a cabinet regulation on the ban and didn’t need to go as far as amending B.C.’s Oil and Gas Activities Act in the legislature.The newspaper reports Mr. Coleman thinks First Nation leaders will support the move, but there’s word now that at least one of them whose northwest B.C. territory has the potential to be impacted by several pipeline projects, doesn’t believe the government is going far enough.Advertisement
Mane scored the first, third and last goals at the Estadio Dragao as Liverpool virtually ensured a first Champions League quarter-final for nine years, with the second leg at Anfield now a formality.“Everyone is always talking about the three, but the team make (it) easier because without the team we are nothing,” said a smiling Mane, with the match ball cradled in his arms.“They do a great job behind (with) all they give us, and we are the lucky boys and we score all the time.”Mane had been the least prolific member of a fast and furious Liverpool attack that has continued to sparkle despite the departure of Phillippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142 million ($200 million) in January.Mane had most often been the player sacrificed earlier in the season when Jurgen Klopp opted to go with only three of the “Fab Four”.A year ago Mane, a £36-million signing from Southampton in 2016, seemed indispensable to Klopp’s rebuilding at Anfield.His time at the African Cup of Nations coincided with a five-game winless run in January and February that ended any chance of a first Premier League title since 1990, while Klopp’s men were also dumped out of the FA Cup and League Cup.– ‘Not jealous’ –This season it has been Salah who has shone with his fleetness of foot and finishing ability, taking the Egyptian to 30 goals in just 36 games for the club — a record that helped Salah beat Mane to win African Player of the Year in January.“It is a new situation, Mo Salah is in. They are best friends so he is not jealous, but it is like everybody is watching there now what is he doing,” said Klopp earlier this month.Mane got the break he needed to open the scoring in Portugal thanks to an error from Porto goalkeeper Jose Se.His confidence seemed to soar and he finished off a characteristic speedy counterattack led by Salah and Firmino for Liverpool’s third, before smashing home from outside the area to complete his hat-trick.“He gave the right answer,” said Klopp. “I said to him after the last game ‘finally you are back’ when we met on the pitch, and tonight he showed it again what a fantastic player he is.Against Porto, Sadio Mane stepped out of the shadows of team-mates Mo Salah and Firmino © AFP / Francisco LEONG“He was always fantastic for us even in his not so good moments.“That’s the real quality if you are not on your 100 percent and still scoring, maybe not that often. If you keep on working really hard it will come, like he did. There can be a moment like this.”Mane’s historic feat did not go unnoticed in his native Senegal, where the 25-year-old is expected to provide the inspiration for his nation at this year’s World Cup.“Mane spits fire in the Dragon’s stadium” and “historic hat-trick” were among the headlines in the Senegalese press.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000When Sadio Mane fired home Liverpool’s fifth goal against Porto, he became the first African to hit a Champions League hat trick © AFP / Francisco LEONGLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 15 – Often overshadowed by team-mate Mohamed Salah’s debut season, Sadio Mane burst back into the spotlight as the first Senegalese player to hit a Champions League hat-trick in Liverpool’s 5-0 demolition of Porto.Salah and Roberto Firmino were also on target on Wednesday as Liverpool’s three lightning-quick forwards took their joint tally for the season to 63 goals.
West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has revealed he is only thinking about helping the club progress – not his contract, which expires at the end of the season.The Hammers currently sit eighth in the Premier League table, and are looking to secure European football in east London for the first time since 2006.And the 60-year-old boss, who confirmed he won’t have talks about a new deal until the end of the campaign, admitted he’s just concentrating on ensuring his team finish as high as possible in the top flight.He told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “It would be very nice if we could achieve [European football] but progression is what it’s about.“The owners are no different now to what they have been for my entire time here, [they’re] waiting until around or at the end of the season [to talk about my contract].“Last time, when we first got back into the Premier League, we finished tenth and it was sorted out at the end of the season. It will be the same for this contract.”

They know us.” Start with their records: Arizona won the NL West with a league-best 90-72. The Rockies, who had to defeat San Diego in a one-game playoff to earn a wild-card berth, finished 90-73. Both clubs have built from within, and they’ve done it relatively cheaply. The Rockies entered the season with a payroll of $54.4 million, $2.4 million more than the Diamondbacks. Only four clubs had lower payrolls. Instead of spending on free agents, both organizations committed to building through the draft. Two of their finest products can be found at shortstop – Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki, drafted in the first round two years ago, and Arizona’s Stephen Drew, picked in the first round a year earlier. Game 1 on Thursday night will pit dazzling starting pitchers Brandon Webb of Arizona and Jeff Francis of Colorado. Both are homegrown. “It speaks to the good old-fashioned values of baseball: scouting and player development and building from within and being patient and taking chances and things working out,” Colorado manager Clint Hurdle said after the Rockies wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Phillies in their NL playoff series. Inexperience can prove costly. But for the Diamondbacks and the Rockies, what they don’t know hasn’t hurt them. “With this team, everybody calls us young, but I think it’s the most exciting team I’ve been on,” said Drew, the younger brother of Boston’s J.D. Drew. Colorado, which lost 94 games in 2004 and 95 in 2005, posted its first winning record since 2000. The Diamondbacks went 51-111 three years ago. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

1 He also made 102 appearances for Scotland.But perhaps what has earned him the knighthood is through his charity work for the Marina Dalglish Appeal and the support he offered to the families affected by the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, in which 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives.He said: “I thought it was a tax bill. For the family, it’s a huge honour.“It won’t make any difference to me, I’ll just maybe need to change my passport!“But just because we’re a wee bit embarrassed about it doesn’t underestimate how pleased and proud we are to have received it.“I hope everyone who came into our lives enjoys it as well.”Dalglish is the only sporting figure knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.However, OBEs were awarded to world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and two-time Olympic skeleton champion Lizzie Yarnold, as well as Bournemouth and former England striker Jermain Defoe. Kenny Dalglish has been knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for his services to football as well as his charity work and the support of the Hillsborough families.The Liverpool legend won three European Cups and six league titles in what was a glittering career as a player and a manager for the Reds. Dalglish claimed to be ‘a wee bit embarrassed’ to receive the knighthood getty
