Instant Horse Racing Machines Illegal; Idaho Supreme Court Rules For Tribes

Jack McNeel - Indian Country Today

Instant horse racing machines, which closely resemble slot machines, are now officially illegal in Idaho following a ruling by the Idaho Supreme Court.

This case began over two years ago when horse racing advocates introduced the concept of using machines to promote racing. The machines they introduced were accepted by the legislature but when they were installed, they were different than those shown to the legislature, and looked like slots.

CBC News

Vanessa Stiffarm has been crowned as the Indian Princess for the 2016 Calgary Stampede.

The 25-year-old from the Blood Tribe impressed Stampede judges with her "incredible poise and beautiful Jingle Dress dancing," the Stampede said in a release.

Edmonton apartment residents angered by racist sign

CBC News

Some residents of an apartment building on 118th Avenue are angry about a racist sign that was posted on the building's front door.

Chidi Nwofor has lived for the past five years in an apartment building at the corner of 118th Avenue and 37th Street.

Over the weekend, a sign was taped on the front door that asks residents to make sure the door closes properly behind them.

The sign tells aboriginal people to f--- off and warns "savages beware … we're watching you."

"I just looked at it, read it, and the first thing was, I'll just go and take this down, this is ridiculous," Nwofor said.

"I just think it's very insensitive to try and put something up like that, no matter if you do have a problem with somebody in the building. That's not the way to deal with it."

Nwofor said he plans to follow the matter up with building management.

The building's manager declined an interview with CBC, saying they're looking into the matter.

CBC News

The city's dumping of eight billion litres of wastewater from Oct. 18 to 25, pending Environment Canada approval, would be done through 26 sewer mains, with the raw sewage released into the St. Lawrence River along the island of Montreal.

The interceptors, which correspond to areas used for sewer overflow during heavy rain, would be used to release the sewage into the river, according to the plans for Montreal's main sewer system, obtained by Radio-Canada.

First Nation students death inquest: 5 questions it may answer

Jody Porter, CBC News

An inquest into the deaths of seven First Nations students who died while attending school in Thunder Bay, Ont., will hear months of evidence aimed at preventing other youth from dying in similar circumstances.

The first task of the five inquest jurors — four women and one man — is to determine the circumstances under which each of the seven young people died.

All of the students, aged 15 through 21, were from remote communities in Northern Ontario and had come to the city to attend high school. They died between 2000 and 2011. Their deaths have never been fully examined.

The seasonal flu vaccine is likely a poor match for the strain of the virus circulating in B.C., offering just 30 to 50 per cent protection — though officials still urge people to get the shot.

So far, it appears H3N2 is the predominant influenza strain making people sick in the province — with three outbreaks at long-term-care homes this fall.

Justin Trudeau vows to end First Nations reserve boil-water advisories within 5 years

The Canadian Press

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau promised Monday to end boil-water advisories on First Nations reserves within five years.

"We have 93 different communities under 133 different boil-water advisories," Trudeau told a town hall hosted by Vice magazine.

"A Canadian government led by me will address this as a top priority because it's not right in a country like Canada. This has gone on for far too long."

Workers removing Ten Commandments from Oklahoma Capitol

SEAN MURPHY, Associated Press

(AP) — A granite monument of the Ten Commandments that has sparked controversy since its installation on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds was being removed and will be transported to a private conservative think tank for storage.

A contractor the state hired began removing the monument shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday. The work comes after the Oklahoma Supreme Court's June decision that the display violates a state constitutional prohibition on the use of public property to support "any sect, church, denomination or system of religion."
