HERES WHAT SASK. SCHOOLS WILL LOOK LIKE WHEN CLASSES RESUME

The Government of Saskatchewan has released the Safe Schools Plan, which will help the provinces 27 school divisions safely return to in-person classes.

NO MASKS, SMALLER CLASS SIZES IN BACK-TO-SCHOOL PLAN

The Saskatchewan government won’t immediately impose mandatory masks or create smaller class sizes for when kids return to school, a move that is causing concerns.

NDP education critic Carla Beck said Tuesday the provinces back-to-school plan fails to protect students, families and education professionals.

“It is inexcusable that the government has had this long to prepare and has made no effort to reduce class sizes or take seriously the conversation on masks that is happening around the country,” Beck said in a news release.

The Sask. Party government defended the plan, saying it can be changed should the pandemic worsen.

POSSIBLE EXPOSURES AT TWO REGINA BUSINESSES

The Saskatchewan Health Authority is alerting people that they may have been exposed to COVID-19 by visiting two Regina businesses.

The potential exposures were at Best Buy between 1-4 p.m. on July 28, and at Cellicon in Cornwall Centre between 4-5 p.m. on July 29.

The SHA is urging people to follow public health measures and practice safety to prevent the spread of the virus.

The Street Culture Project has hired an independent investigator to manage allegations recently levied against its members.

The co-chair of the Street Culture Project’s board said two senior executives within the organization had been placed on leave, and another employee placed on administrative duties. He did not speak on the resignation of the agencys executive director, Dustin Browne, during a press conference on Wednesday morning.

The CEO and founder of the organization, Kim McIvor, is one of the members who has been placed on leave. The other is director of operations Mike Gerrand.

“[They] are not physically involved with the day-to-day operations of the organization and are not in contact with youth or staff,” Joey Tremblay, board co-chair said.

Tremblay said he welcomes more allegations be shared through the private investigator, Donna Sigmeth Q.C., via the online complaint form.

Allegations arose on July 29, in an Instagram post which accused members of the non-profit of several instances of sexual harassment.

In a Facebook post on Thursday evening, Street Culture Project said it was made aware of “serious allegations” against one of its team members. It said the person was suspended immediately and a third-party investigation is underway.

Browne announced his resignation from his position in a comment on the post.

“I have become aware that my actions have caused a negative impact with some staff, colleagues and friends,” he said.

He said his resignation is effective immediately.

A massive explosion rocked Beirut on Tuesday, flattening much of the citys port, damaging buildings across the capital and sending a giant mushroom cloud into the sky. More than 70 people were killed and 3,000 injured, with bodies buried in the rubble, officials said.

The blast struck with the force of a 3.5 magnitude earthquake, according to Germanys geosciences centre GFZ, and it was heard and felt as far away as Cyprus more than 200 kilometres (180 miles) across the Mediterranean.

The sudden devastation overwhelmed a country already struggling with both the coronavirus pandemic and an economic crisis. For hours afterward, ambulances rushing in from around Lebanon carried away the wounded. Hospitals quickly filled beyond capacity, pleading for blood supplies, and generators to keep their lights on.

For blocks around the port, where the explosion took place, bloodied residents staggered through streets lined with overturned cars and littered with rubble from shattered buildings. Windows and doors were blown out kilometres (miles) away. Army helicopters helped battle fires raging at Beiruts port.

The cause of the blast was not immediately known, but initial reports suggested a fire had detonated a warehouse at the port.

Abbas Ibrahim, chief of Lebanese General Security, said it might have been caused by highly explosive material that was confiscated from a ship some time ago and stored at the port. Local television channel LBC said the material was sodium nitrate. Witnesses reported seeing a strange orange-colored cloud like that which appears when toxic nitrogen dioxide gas is released after an explosion involving nitrates.

The explosion came amid ongoing tensions between Israel and the Hezbollah military group on Lebanons southern border. Many residents reported hearing planes overhead just before the blast, fueling rumours of an attack, though Israeli military overflights are common. An Israeli government official said Israel had nothing to do with the blast. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter with the news media. Israeli officials usually do not comment on foreign reports.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo extended his deepest condolences to the people of Beirut and said the United States is closely monitoring the situation. Our team in Beirut has reported to me the extensive damage to a city and a people that I hold dear, an additional challenge in a time of already deep crisis, Pompeo said in a written statement.

The blast was stunning even for a city that has seen civil war, suicide bombings and bombardment by Israel.

It was a real horror show. I havent seen anything like that since the days of the (civil) war, said Marwan Ramadan, who was about 500 metres (yards) from the port and was knocked off his feet by the force of the explosion.

Health Minister Hassan Hamad said the preliminary toll was more than 70 dead and more than 3,000 wounded. Emergency teams streamed in from across Lebanon to help, and the injured had to be taken to hospitals outside the capital. Hamad added that hospitals were barely coping and offers of aid were pouring in from Arab states and friends of Lebanon.

Beiruts governor, Marwan Abboud, broke into tears as he toured the site, exclaiming, Beirut is a devastated city. Prime Minister Hassan Diab vowed that those responsible will pay.

Initially, video taken by residents showed a fire raging at the port, sending up a giant column of smoke, illuminated by flashes of what appeared to be fireworks. Local TV stations reported that a fireworks warehouse was involved. The fire then appeared to spread to a nearby building, triggering a more massive explosion, sending up a mushroom cloud and generating a shock wave.

One of Israels top bomb experts, Boaz Hayoun, said fireworks could have been a factor setting off the bigger blast. Before the big explosion, ... in the centre of the fire, you can see sparks, you can hear sounds like popcorn and you can hear whistles, said Hayoun, owner of the Tamar Group, which works closely with the Israeli government on safety and certification issues involving explosives. This is very specific behaviour of fireworks.

Charbel Haj, who works at the port, said it started as small explosions like firecrackers. Then, he said, he was thrown off his feet by the huge blast. His clothes were torn.

Some of those injured lay on the ground at the port, Associated Press staff at the scene said. A civil defence official said there were still bodies inside the port, many under debris.

Outside one hospital, Omar Kinno sat on the pavement, holding back tears. Kinno, a Syrian, said one of his sisters was killed when the blast rocked their apartment near the port, and another sisters neck was broken. His injured mother and father were taken to a hospital but he didnt know which, and he was making calls trying to track them down.

I have no idea what happened to my parents. I am totally lost, he said.

Confusion reigned across the city, as people cleared out of damaged homes or tried to locate family. Motorcyclists picked their way through traffic, carrying the injured.

One woman covered in blood from the waist up walked down a trashed street while talking furiously on her phone. On another street, a woman with a bloodied face looked distraught, staggering through traffic with two friends at her side.

This country is cursed, a young man passing by muttered.

The blast came at a time when Lebanons economy is facing collapse from the financial crisis and the coronavirus restrictions. Many have lost jobs, while the worth of their savings has evaporated as the currency has plunged in value against the dollar. The result has thrown many into poverty.

Several of Beiruts hospitals were damaged in the blast. Roum Hospital put out a call for people to bring it spare generators to keep its electricity going as it evacuated patients because of heavy damage.

Outside the St. George University Hospital in Beiruts Achrafieh neighbourhood, people with various injuries arrived in ambulances, in cars and on foot. The explosion had caused major damage inside the building and knocked out the electricity at the hospital. Dozens of injured were being treated on the spot on the street outside, on stretchers and wheelchairs.

This is a catastrophe we have on our hands, said one doctor, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make press statements.

The U.N. peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, UNIFIL, said one of its ships in the port was damaged and a number of its peacekeepers were injured, some seriously.

It was reminiscent of massive blasts during Lebanons civil war and took place only three days before a U.N.-backed tribunal was set to give its verdict in the killing of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in a truck bombing more than 15 years ago. That explosion, with a ton of explosives, was felt kilometres (miles) away, just like Tuesdays explosion.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a tweet that his country was sending aid. Israel offered emergency assistance through international intermediaries, its Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Iran, Hezbollahs patron, also said it was ready to help. Stay strong, Lebanon, its foreign minister, Javad Zarif, said in a tweet.

The SHA is urging people to follow public health measures and practice safety to prevent the spread of the virus.

Safety measures include physical distancing of two metres, frequent hand washing and self-isolating if symptoms of COVID-19 develop.

Public health has also recommended wearing a mask in places where physical distancing isn’t possible.

Despite the exposures, the SHA said the risk of transmission to the public is considered low.

The Saskatchewan government won’t immediately impose mandatory masks or create smaller class sizes for when kids return to school, a move that is causing concerns.

NDP education critic Carla Beck said Thursday the provinces back-to-school plan fails to protect students, families and education professionals.

“It is inexcusable that the government has had this long to prepare and has made no effort to reduce class sizes or take seriously the conversation on masks that is happening around the country,” Beck said in a news release.

The Sask. Party government defended the plan, saying it allows for changes should the pandemic worsen.

Education minister Gordon Wyant told reporters the province has ordered six million masks should they be required.

The government is considering mandating masks in schools if the province reaches a level two scenario.

“We may well have to reduce class sizes, we may well have to put other things in place to ensure that school settings are safe,” he said. “It will be based on the advice from the chief medical health officer.”

Wyant said the plan looks to minimize contact within schools, though he acknowledged that it might be difficult.

For instance, lunches and recesses will be staggered to help minimize interactions between students. They will have access to more hand sanitizer and custodial staff will consistently sanitize facilities.

Despite the efforts, Beck says the plan doesn’t do enough to ensure safety.

She said smaller class sizes, clear mask guidelines and funding are needed for schools to successfully re-open.

“Prior to this pandemic, classrooms were already overcrowded and understaffed – those huge issues are still not addressed,” Beck said

The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) said it’s encouraged the government is considering masks, but it has other questions and concerns.

In a news release, the organization said schools should be made as safe as possible. Closed and crowded spaces, as well as close contact between students, should be avoided, it said.

“We all want to return to the classroom, but it must be done safely,” said Patrick Maze, the president of the STF.

“Considering masks is a step in the right direction. Teachers and parents are questioning whether this is enough and why there are inconsistencies between the broader public health measures and what is required in schools,” he said.

When asked about why the back-to-school plan isn’t in line with broader health measures, Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said students are generally in the same co-hort.

As well, he said transmission isn’t as efficient with kids in early elementary grades as it is for adults.

Alberta recently changed its back-to-school plan, requiring masks be worn from Grade 4 to 12 in common areas. Other provinces have also required masks for schools, though some have not.

Wyant said Saskatchewan could change the plan before Sept. 1.

Each school division has developed its own back-to-school plan that’s based on the province’s requirements. Parents and school staff can expect details of these plans soon.

Regina police have charged a pair with attempted murder after an incident that took place outside a home on Saturday.
