OTTAWA — NDP health critic Don Davies is calling for the RCMP to immediately launch an investigation into all allegations of forced and coerced sterilizations in Canada.In a letter to RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki, Davies urges action on the issue given “multiple, credible allegations of crimes” have been made.Davies says Indigenous women in Saskatchewan came forward and reported they were forced or coerced into tubal ligations against their will and in “clear circumstances of duress.”He also points to a class-action lawsuit representing 60 women filed in Saskatchewan against the province, the federal government, regional health authorities and individual doctors over the alleged incidents.Davies says subsequent media coverage has led more women from across Canada to disclose that they too have undergone forced or coerced sterilization in recent years.In December, the United Nations Committee Against Torture urged Canada to take action to address allegations of coerced and forced sterilizations and gave it one year to report back with progress.The Canadian Press
Beppe Iachini was sacked by Sassuolo after the end of the season and he insisted that he couldn’t have done more for the club and he doesn’t have any regrets about any of his steps.The Italian coach claimed that he was very happy at the club and especially the second half of the season was amazing as they point average from it would be worth the Europa League places.Iachini spoke about his end at the club as he said, according to Football Italia:Maurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“It’s a day that often happens in football.”“We met with the club and the prerequisites weren’t there for us to continue together. I was very happy here, I have to thank everyone from the club to the team.”“We had a great comeback in the league, we started from the third-last place and went to 11th, playing youngsters and posting a points average which would’ve been worth Europe in the second half of the season.”
One of the most promising Serie A defenders may leave Italy in the forthcoming transfer market, with two major Europe clubs looking to grab Fiorentina’s Nikola MilenkovicAn imposing physical presence, as well as, great anticipation and solid technique make Milenkovic a perfect modern defender. Due to his abilities, Stefano Pioli has deployed the Serbia international even as a right-back although he stands 6ft 5in tall.The former Partizan man has started all nine Serie A games for the Viola, having bagged two goals in the process.Milenkovic’s outstanding performance has drawn the attention of Manchester United, with Bayern Munich recently emerging as the most likely candidate to land the strong centre-back, according to the Calciomercato.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.With Jerome Boateng and Niklas Sule both struggling to impress this season, the Bavarians are looking for a defender to partner Matts Hummels.However, the reigning Bundesliga champions will have to splash out around €50 million to wrap up the deal.The 21-year-old Serbian arrived at the Stadio Artemio Franchi from Partizan Belgrade back last year for a reported fee of €5.1 million. So, the Tuscany-based outfit will make a nice profit if Milenkovic continues to perform at the highest level.

In an attempt to capture the bygone era of Rajasthan, Priyanka Banerjee travelled the length and breadth of the desert city and came out with an exhibition titled ‘Vibrant Rajsthan.’ The exhibition at India Habitat Centre depicts colourful and vivacious places of Rajasthan and its people.”The princely state of Rajasthan is replete with mesmerising forts and palaces speaking of many tales of the bygone era. Every time I visit the desert city, the architecture seems to weave tales of conquests and victories of the rulers. The glory is well preserved in the people of Rajasthan and in the majestic forts and palaces. Enduring the unmerciful desert winds and oppressing heat of the scorching sun, they have stood unshakable many sieges and have provided a safe haven for the rulers in the conflicting times,” says the artist who is inspired by the simplicity of Rabindranath Tagore.

In the sunlight, the architectural marvels bask in glory and tell innumerable tales of its rich heritage. Light and shadow plays a crucial role in giving depth to the subjects. For the sake of harmony of light and darks, some parts are kept darker and others lighter, creating contrasts and guiding the viewer to the key figures, place etc. A great deal of skill is required in imparting a three dimensional effect to the paintings,” explained Priyanka who has used different mediums like watercolour on paper, acrylics on canvas, soft pastels on paper to execute the artworks on display at the exhibition which goes on till July 16.
