The risk of avalanche at alpine in the West Kootenay backcountry will rise to considerable on Wednesday and Thursday as forecasted new snow is expected to fall on a very weak surface, according to the Canadian Avalanche Centre. “Several persistent weaknesses are being tracked by the professional crowd,” said CAC’s James Floyer. “Triggering one of these deeper weaknesses could yield a large avalanche.” That means “touchy” wind slabs will likely develop in exposed lee areas, he added in his avalanche report for this week (http://www.avalanche.ca/cac). Although forecast winds at the tree line elevations are presently light, if the wind blows harder than expected, or new snow amounts come in higher than forecast, bump up the danger ratings by one for the tree line. There was a rider-triggered avalanche on Saturday on Mt. Plewman near Rossland. Weather forecast Tuesday: Flurries during the day, light snow starting late in the day. Moderate westerly winds. Wednesday: Snow amounts of 10-15 centimetres, freezing levels staying at valley bottom. Light westerly winds. Thursday: A further 10 cm. or so of snow. Freezing levels rising to around 1,000 metres. Moderate to strong westerly winds. Terrain to watch • Wind-loaded slopes around ridgelines, the tops of bowls and on convex rolls in exposed terrain • Steep, alpine terrain where the lower crust exists, especially in thinner snowpack areas. • Terrain traps that increase the consequence of a small avalanche Travel advice • Look for signs of wind slab, such as drifting snow, cracking of the upper snowpack as you ride over it or denser snow under your sled or skis. If you see these signs, back off onto shallower terrain. • Try to anticipate where thin spots on the slope may be. The crest of convex rolls are a good bet, as are slopes where you can see rocky outcrops. Stay well away from these thin spot • As always, group up well away from avalanche terrain, even if it obscures your view of other riders a little. One at a time on the slope. Snowpack The alpine has been hammered by the wind and highly variable wind-affected surfaces now exist. A surface hoar layer lies buried under around 25 cm. of snow in more sheltered locations at tree line. A rain crust lies 30-40 cm. below the surface and was reported from Kootenay Pass and the Rossland area. Around 90 cm. of snow now sits on the (Dec-08) surface hoar/crust interface; this interface appears to have bonded. Snow depths are variable but average around 150 cm. at tree line.
17 May 2013 A new statue of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first democratically elected president, will be mounted at the Union Buildings in Pretoria and Parliament in Cape Town, Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile announced on Thursday. Tabling his department’s budget vote in Parliament, Mashatile said the decision to erect the statue, which has already been commissioned, followed calls from MPs. Mashatile also announced that South Africa would start a year-long campaign to celebrate 20 years of democratic governance in the country. The festivities will culminate next year on 27 April – the day on which all South Africans voted together in one election for the first time. “Our build-up programme will allow us to highlight and celebrate our achievements; to make the point, once more, that South Africa is a better country than it was before our liberation,” Mashatile said. The festivities will also promote the National Development Plan, Vision 2030, as drawn up by the National Planning Commission, which defines South Africa’s long-term vision of eliminating poverty and reducing inequality by the year 2030. Apart from the 100th anniversary of the Union Buildings, this year also marks the centenary of the proclamation of the Native Land Act. To commemorate this, Cape Town’s Iziko Museum will be hosting an exhibition entitled “Umhlaba 1913 to 2013”. The Arts and Culture Department is also collaborating with the Department of Rural Development to document the legacy of the Native Land Act. Mashatile told Parliament that his department was negotiating for the homecoming of the remains of Chief Dawid Stuurman, the Khoi chief who twice escaped from Robben Island before being exiled to Australia, where he died. South Africa has also identified sites in Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Lesotho for inclusion in a Liberation Heritage Route that will link “sites and individuals of significance to the South African struggle for liberation throughout the continent”. Talks about building a monument at the place where Nelson Mandela received military training in 1962 have been held with the government of Ethiopia, Mashatile added. Source: SAnews.gov.za

WASHINGTON – The fresh round of U.S.-Canada negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement generated hopeful signals from both camps Wednesday that a deal could be struck by the end of the week.A day after the two neighbours restarted intensive, face-to-face negotiations on NAFTA, both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump expressed optimism a new continental accord could be reached by Friday.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, emerging Wednesday evening from her second meeting of the day with her U.S. counterpart, said officials would be working late into the night — and possibly all night — on potential “landing zones” where both parties can agree. She and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and their teams will meet again Thursday to review the progress made.“This is a very intense moment in the negotiations and we’re trying to get a lot of things done very quickly,” she said.“I feel that both parties are coming to this stage of the negotiation with a lot of goodwill … There is a good atmosphere, we’re working productively.”The 24-year-old NAFTA, which also includes Mexico and is integral to the continent’s economy, has been under renegotiation for more than 12 months.Canadian officials say an agreement announced earlier in the week between the U.S. and Mexico, which includes common ground on the difficult issue of labour within the auto sector, has broken a logjam in the talks.Trump added a layer of urgency to the negotiations Monday after announcing his deal with Mexico — with an ultimatum that Canada would have to join their pact by Friday or suffer the consequences of punishing tariffs on its auto sector. He also warned that the U.S. and Mexico would move forward bilaterally without Canada.By Wednesday, after round-the-clock talks among officials from all three countries, a cautious Trudeau said it was possible for a new three-country treaty to come together by week’s end — but he added Canada refused to be rushed into a poor deal just to meet Trump’s deadline.To get to a deal, Canada is under pressure from the U.S. to compromise on key issues — from opening access to its protected dairy sector, to getting rid of NAFTA’s dispute settlement system, to introducing a clause that would call for the deal to be renegotiated again every 16 years.“We recognize there is a possibility of getting there by Friday, but it is only a possibility because it will hinge on whether or not there is ultimately a good deal for Canada, a good deal for Canadians,” Trudeau said at an event in northern Ontario.“I’ve said from the beginning no NAFTA deal is better than a bad NAFTA deal. And we are going to remain firm on that principle because Canadians expect us to stand up for them.”Trudeau’s office sent out a signal later Wednesday that NAFTA 2.0 talks were progressing.His office said the prime minister will hold a call Thursday afternoon with premiers to discuss the NAFTA negotiations. Freeland will be on the call, as will Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., David MacNaughton, and Dominic LeBlanc, the federal minister responsible for intergovernmental affairs.Trump, too, was confident Wednesday that a deal could be on the way.“They want to be a part of the deal and we gave until Friday and I think we’re probably on track,” Trump told reporters of Canada’s negotiating team.“We’ll see what happens. But in any event, things are working out very well.”The U.S. president also noted it would be a bad idea for Canada to let this opportunity to join the U.S.-Mexican trade agreement slip away.“I think it’s going to be obviously very good for Canada if they do (join) and I think it’s probably not going to be good at all if they don’t,” Trump said.Freeland, who has been leading Ottawa’s negotiating team this week in Washington, said she’s optimistic about the “intense” talks now under way in the accelerated search compromise on NAFTA.But she also cautioned that more tough talks lie ahead.“When it comes to specific issues, we have a huge amount of work to do this week at the ministerial level and also officials are really grinding through extremely intensively,” the minister said as she emerged from her first meeting of the day with Lighthizer.When pressed by reporters, Freeland would not provide details of what Canada might be putting on the table, saying she and Lighthizer have agreed not to negotiate in public. Trudeau similarly refused to get into details.However, Freeland did suggest Canada has not budged on its insistence that a new NAFTA must include an independent dispute settlement mechanism. Canada’s view on that subject is “well known,” she said, when asked if she’s prepared to drop that demand.She credited the Mexicans for their difficult decision to compromise on labour and wages as part of its auto rules-of-origin talks with the U.S., saying it has cleared the way for more substantive talks between Washington and Ottawa.“This is a really important step for us and it has set the stage for very intensive conversations and negotiations that we’re going to have this week,” Freeland said.For now, Canadian negotiators are primarily focused on bilateral talks with the Americans.Freeland cancelled her trip to Europe this week to return to the NAFTA bargaining table after the U.S. and Mexico agreed on numerous trade issues throughout their bilateral, summertime talks.Asked to comment Wednesday about how he’s feeling about his trading partners, Trump said: “I love Canada. You know what? I love Mexico too.” Asked which one he likes better, he said, “I like ’em both the same.”
