  2. Hydro-Quebec and NB Power : Power talks continue Last Updated: Thursday, October 22, 2009 | 8:54 PM AT CBC News Opposition Leader David Alward says Premier Shawn Graham has a responsibility to be clear to New Brunswickers.Opposition Leader David Alward says Premier Shawn Graham has a responsibility to be clear to New Brunswickers. (CBC)New Brunswick Opposition Leader David Alward is calling on Premier Shawn Graham to clear the air about the future of NB Power and say whether it is for sale. Alward said he's been hearing speculation that Hydro-Québec, the provincial energy utility, wants to buy NB Power, a provincial Crown corporation. "It's important at this time that the premier be transparent, be open to New Brunswickers," he said. "If these are just rumours, if this isn't true, then he has the opportunity to tell New Brunswickers. He has the responsibility. If they are true, he has a responsibility to tell New Brunswickers what's going on." Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams told CBC News he has also heard rumours about a possible deal between NB Power and Hydro-Québec. In a statement Thursday, his communications director, Elizabeth Matthews, said Williams "can't imagine the people of New Brunswick would allow their government to sell their energy asset and put that power into someone else's hands." Graham began discussions with Quebec Premier Jean Charest last summer about energy issues, including possible relationships between Hydro-Québec and NB Power. Those talks spawned rumours that NB Power would be sold to Hydro-Québec. Late Thursday, Graham's office issued a statement that neither confirms nor denies those rumours. "We're having a variety of conversations with Quebec, but they have not concluded," said Graham's communications director, Jordan O'Brien. "It's not in anybody's interest to talk about a possible outcome." NB Power has been owned by the province since 1920. In the last provincial election, Graham promised to keep it as a publicly owned utility. ________________________________________________________________ N.L. premier watching N.B., Quebec energy talks Fri Oct 23, 7:06 AM Reports that have been circulating in New Brunswick about the possible sale of that province's energy utility have the attention of the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador. In a statement Thursday, Danny Williams's communications director, Elizabeth Matthews, said the premier "can't imagine the people of New Brunswick would allow their government to sell their energy asset and put that power into someone else's hands." The rumours say that New Brunswick is on the verge of a deal to sell its utility NB Power to Hydro-Québec. New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham isn't commenting. But the province's Progressive Conservative Leader David Alward is calling on Graham to clear the air about the future of NB Power and say whether it is for sale. Alward said he's been hearing speculation that Hydro-Québec, the provincial energy utility, wants to buy NB Power, a provincial Crown corporation. "It's important at this time that the premier be transparent, be open to New Brunswickers," he said. "If these are just rumours, if this isn't true, then he has the opportunity to tell New Brunswickers. He has the responsibility. If they are true, he has a responsibility to tell New Brunswickers what's going on."

À lire les commentaires sur le site de la CBC, je crois que les gens du NB sont en désaccords, bref du bon vieux Quebec-bashing comme on l'aime. Ceci est très divertissant par contre. Enfin, de dire que le Canada n'est pas vraiment divisé en deux solitudes indifférentes tient purement du délire.
  3. Langues officielles: Fraser exige un plus grand leadership du fédéral REUTERS Louis Lafortune La Presse Canadienne Quarante ans après l'adoption de la Loi sur les langues officielles, les Canadiens ont toujours beaucoup de difficulté à se faire servir dans les deux langues, surtout les francophones hors-Québec. «L'arbre a été planté, mais seulement quelques fruits sont mûrs», a déclaré mardi matin le commissaire aux langues officielles du Canada, Graham Fraser, lors du dépôt de son rapport annuel. M. Fraser demande au gouvernement conservateur d'«exercer un plus grand leadership» afin d'assurer des services bilingues lors des Jeux olympiques d'hiver de Vancouver en 2010. M. Fraser dénonce l'appui timide du gouvernement de Stephen Harper à la dualité linguistique au Canada. Il cite la Feuille de route 2008-2013 dévoilée l'an dernier par l'ex-ministre de Patrimoine canadien, Josée Verner, qui «ne soutient pas le développement des communautés de langue officielle autant qu'il serait souhaitable». Cette feuille de route est venue remplacer le Plan d'action sur les langues officielles qui venait à échéance l'été dernier. Or, les organismes qui défendent les droits linguistiques au pays n'ont pas encore reçu les sommes promises pour leur financement. «Les sommes annoncées en juin 2008 ne suffiront pas à répondre à l'ensemble des besions des communautés pour leur permettre de faire face aux défis d'ici 2013.» Ce plan d'action du gouvernement Harper ne définit pas non plus de «cibles précises pour guider les institutions fédérales dans leurs interventions», ajoute M. Fraser. Améliorations dans la fonction publique Comme il l'a déjà fait dans ses rapports précédents, Graham Fraser note certaines améliorations au niveau de la fonction publique. Il félicite notamment les services billingues offerts à la Société du Musée canadien des civilisations, à la Commission de la capitale nationale, à la Commission canadienne du tourisme et au Centre national des Arts. Toutefois, l'appareil fédéral a encore du chemin à faire. «En plein contexte de renouvellement de la fonction publique, il faut répéter haut et fort le message que le français et l'anglais ont tous deux leur place comme langues de travail dans les insitutions fédérales et que le bilinguisme est une composante essentielle du leadership», écrit le commissaire aux langues officielles. Graham Fraser annonce qu'il entreprendra cette année une étude sur le leadership dans la fonction publique bilingue. D'autre part, il note encore une fois des lacunes dans les services offerts par le transporteur aérien Air Canada. Il demande au ministre des Transports de déposer un projet de loi qui aurait pour but «la protection et le maintien des droits linguistiques du public voyageur et du personnel d'Air Canada.»
