'Canada does not treat us right': Trump threatens new tax

The Canadian Press

U.S. President Donald Trump is complaining about Canadian trade practices while threatening some as-yet-undefined international tax that has revived fears he might be contemplating new American import penalties.

He made the remarks at the White House on Monday while unveiling a long-awaited infrastructure plan. During a lengthy session with reporters, he complained about countries considered allies of the U.S.

"Canada does not treat us right in terms of the farming and the crossing the borders," Trump said.

Opinion Cases like Colten Boushie's are handled unjustly, and there's nothing wrong with saying that: Neil Macdonald

Neil Macdonald, CBC News

For what it's worth, federal Conservative politicians are expressing great concern that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his justice minister may have somehow harmed the judicial process by implicitly criticizing the acquittal of an Indigenous man's killer by a Saskatchewan jury last week.

Well, setting aside for a moment that the Conservatives are the official Opposition, and reflexively oppose everything Trudeau does or says, and further setting aside the fact that Trudeau's remarks were his usual dollop of largely meaningless pablum, what exactly would be the problem if he'd had the bottle to actually speak plainly and critically about what happened in that courtroom?

Franklin County flu cases up from last year; Cuomo authorizes emergency funds for statewide flu shots

- Malone Telegram

MALONE — Franklin County has registered 91 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza so far in the 2017-18 flu season.

This represents a noticeable increase from last year; during the same time period for the 2016-17 flu season, there were 78 lab-confirmed cases.

County Public Health Director Kathleen Strack recommended that county residents continue to get vaccinations, noting that influenza activity is up across the state.

“Data suggests that the influenza vaccine continues to offer protections and can reduce the severity of illness for those who get the flu,” wrote Strack in an email to The Telegram on Friday.

Mohawk Council of Akwesasne pondering a recreational marijuana dispensary on its territory

Alan S. Hale, Cornwall Standard-Freeholder

AKWESASNE - If the community gives the go-ahead, Akwesasne could be the only place with a dispensary for recreational marijuana near Cornwall when it becomes legal this year.

At its monthly meeting in January, a video of which is posted on YouTube, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) ran the idea past its members looking for feedback. It was made very clear during the presentation the MCA would not pursue the idea if the community is not in favour of it, but Grand Chief Abram Benedict argued the impending legalization of marijuana presents the First Nation with an incredible business opportunity.

Cuomo unveils amendment to payroll tax proposal in executive budget

-Massena Daily Courier

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo unveiled 30-day amendments to his FY 2019 executive budget proposal Monday, including an adjustment to his proposal to shift reliance on income taxes to payroll taxes.

In an effort to stave off an increase for New Yorkers brought through the federal tax reform law that went into effect this year, Gov. Cuomo proposed in his executive budget a rewrite of the state tax code to rely more on employer payroll taxes rather than income taxes from employees. This was in direct response to the federal tax plan’s capping of state and local tax deductions at $10,000, which the governor has said will drastically increase taxes for state residents.

Navajo Nation Withstands Motion to Dismiss in Colorado River Breach of Trust Litigation

Native News Online Staff

WINDOW ROCK – Last week, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit granted the Navajo Nation’s request to overturn a decision of the Arizona District Court holding that the Nation’s claim that the United States had breached its fiduciary duty to the Navajo Nation in decisions regarding the management of the Colorado River was barred by sovereign immunity.  Attorney General Ethel Branch explained the significance of the ruling: “The decision in Navajo Nation v. Department of Interior, 9th Circuit No. 14-16864, is particularly important for tribes within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit because it clarifies that Congress has waived the immunity of the United States for all suits for injunctive and declaratory relief that do not seek money damages.”
