Huskies take it to Vipers with 15-3 rout

first_imgFort St. John opened the scoring 4:40 into the first period as Jordan Gies found the back of the net. His goal was one of seven in the frame for the team as they lead 7-0 after one.The second period was more of the same with Fort St. John adding to their count with five more goals. Sexsmith was able to put themselves on the board during the period as the Huskies led 12-1 after 40 minutes.With the game well in hand the Huskies added three more goals while Sexsmith responded with two to make the final 15-3.- Advertisement -Head Coach Gary Alexander confesses it wasn’t a great game to witness because of the lopsided score, but was happy with how his team performed on the ice compared to some of their recent efforts.“It wasn’t a great game to watch but I thought we played a little more disciplined hockey. We did all the little things right,” he says. “We moved the puck better, we skated a lot better than we have in the last half dozen games. Maybe not a lot of competition but I think a lot of the reason was we played so much better too.” The loudest cheers of the evening were reserved for goaltender Austin Craig who was in the back up role in place of Daimon Derouin. Craig got to take part in the final six minutes of the game after Travis McLean was pulled as a precautionary measure after a collision in front of the goal.Advertisement “Austin has stood in for us for three of four games now and Travis tweaked his knee so we thought it would be a great time to give Austin a couple of shots,” Alexander explains. “The boys supported him pretty good and brought their game back a bit more on the defensive end. He made a couple of big stops and nice plays. It was great.”Scoring for the Huskies were Jordan Gies (3), Jordan Harder (4), Cayle Bell (2), Cole Calliou, Brighton Campbell (2), Tyson Glass, Shawn Holliday, and Daylen Pearson.The Huskies next game comes on Wednesday as they take on the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks on the road at 8 p.m. The game can be heard on Moose FM with the pregame show beginning at 7:45.last_img read more

Qatar’s Exit Visa System Ends; Workers Can Leave Without Permits

first_imgQatar has enforced the exit visa reform which allows migrant workers to leave the country without obtaining permission from their employers. Qatar’s Ministry of Interior announced the implementation of this reform on Oct.28. The ministry announced this on Twitter, where it said that certain provisions of Law No.21 of 2015 are amended by Law No.13 of 2018. These amendments are related to entry, exit, and residency of the expat workers in the country, and are being implemented from Oct.28, 2018.Law No. 13 of 2018, which amended certain provisions of the Law No. 21 of 2015 regulating the entry, exit and residency of expatriates is being implemented starting today, Sunday 28 October 2018. #MoIQatar— Ministry of Interior (@MOI_QatarEn) October 28, 2018 The ministry said, “As per the amendment, the expatriate workers that come under the Labor Law can leave the country without obtaining a prior permit, while the employer can restrict up to 5% of his workforce to obtain a prior consent because of the nature of their work.” While the amendment allows migrant workers to leave the oil-rich Kingdom without taking any permission from their employers, it also gives companies the right to keep up to five percent of their employees in the list for whom permission or no objection certificate is still needed for leaving the country. For these employees, the employers will have to give a justification based on the nature of their work. The ministry said that “the employers can upload such list of employees who require prior consent to exit the country, through the website of the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA).” It also said, “The expatriate workers, who are unable to leave the country for any reason, can approach the Expatriate Exit Grievance Committee, which will look into the complaint and take a decision within three working days.” Welcoming this move, Houtan Homayounpour, Head of ILO project Office for the State of Qatar, International Labor Organization (ILO), Doha, said in a video message on Twitter, “As of October 28, most workers covered by the labor code in Qatar will no longer require an exit permit. This will have a direct and positive impact on the lives of migrant workers in Qatar.”Great news! As of today, exit visas no longer needed for the majority of workers in Qatar. @ADLSAQa @MOI_QatarEn @Houtan_ILO pic.twitter.com/sVuZ5tJ67U— ILO Project Office for the State of Qatar (@ILOQatar) October 28, 2018Qatar had announced the Labor Law reform in September this year. After meeting Qatar’s Prime Minister and Labor Minister, Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) had said on Oct.8 that Qatar’s reformed exit visa system will be implemented by the end of October.This relaxation in exit policy will benefit thousands of migrant workers from India, Nepal, and Bangladesh who work in the country.Qatar has been constantly facing criticism by human right groups for its stringent labor laws. As the country is hosting the Soccer World Cup in 2022, this labor reform is being seen as an attempt to remove negativity associated with its name. It was also announced in April this year that the country will increase the minimum wages by the end of 2018. Related Itemslast_img read more
