Man who scammed romantic partner wants mistrial despite guilty finding

first_imgColin Perkel, The Canadian Press TORONTO — A con artist who scammed the romantic partner he met online out of hundreds of thousands of dollars has asked a judge to declare a mistrial, months after finding him guilty.In his motion, Shaun Rootenberg argues Superior Court Justice Beth Allen unfairly refused to stay the proceedings against him over problems with pretrial disclosure and his being strip-searched in prison.In July, Allen convicted Rootenberg, of Thornhill, Ont., of defrauding Victoria Smith, a divorced mother of two, out of $595,000.Smith had given Rootenberg the money in September and October 2013 to invest on her behalf. Instead, Allen ruled, Rootenberg used the funds to buy himself a new BMW and pay off gambling debts, among other things.Rootenberg’s lawyer Bryan Badali, who admits a mistrial is an “extreme remedy,” concedes the nine-day trial that began in May before Allen was otherwise fair.But during a hearing last week, prosecutor Mitchell Flagg said he fundamentally disagreed, contending that “everything about this trial was fair.”Evidence at trial was that Rootenberg, pretending to be Shaun Rothberg, met Smith via the e-Harmony dating site in July 2013. She quickly fell for the divorced father of two. Rootenberg talked up his idea for developing an online gaming venture called Social Trivia and, after a month of dating, she handed over $160,000 as an investment.“She believed they were in a committed monogamous relationship,” Allen, who will rule on the mistrial motion next month, said in her judgment.Soon after, Smith gave Rootenberg $435,000 to invest in mortgages he said would yield six per cent interest income every month. Over the ensuing 16 months, she did receive payments totalling about $36,500.“For all the court knows,” Allen said, “Mr. Rootenberg may well have used Ms. Smith’s own funds to pay her the dividends.”About 18 months into the relationship, Smith discovered — much to her shock — that her love interest was a convicted fraudster who had spent time in prison and was not Shaun Rothberg but Shaun Rootenberg. Worried about her money, she testified that she tried to keep the relationship going but ultimately went to police.Rootenberg is also a key figure in an unrelated case in which a former medical officer of health, Dr. Kim Barker, claims he preyed on her vulnerability.At the same time Smith was dating Rootenberg and handing over cash to him, Barker was also involved with a man she knew as Shaun Rothberg, and hired him as interim chief financial officer of the Algoma Public Health Unit in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.Barker has spent years fighting to block the release of an embarrassing forensic report detailing her relationship with Rootenberg and his hiring. She is currently waiting to see if the Supreme Court of Canada will weigh in after a lower court ruled the report should be public.Barker resigned in 2015 after it became public that Rootenberg had served time for multiple counts of fraud.It had been during his incarceration at Beaver Creek penitentiary in 2011 that Rootenberg met another convicted fraudster, Myron Gottlieb, the former second-in-command to disgraced Livent Inc. impresario Garth Drabinsky. The two men, Gottlieb testified, discussed Rootenberg’s plan for the social media business.After their release, Gottlieb, president of B-G Enterprises Inc., agreed to help Rootenberg with the venture in exchange for $70,000. Gottlieb also allowed Rootenberg to deposit money ostensibly from off-shore assets into B-G’s bank account and disbursed the cash as directed. In fact, the money had come from Smith.In finding him guilty, Allen said it was clear Rootenberg had diverted funds for his own personal use and gave them to third parties for their use.“Ms. Smith was unaware of what Mr. Rootenberg had done with her money,” Allen said. “She did not know the BMW she saw him driving around in was purchased with her $435,000.”last_img read more

Fairfax eyeing some US stores after Toys R Us Canada purchase

first_imgTORONTO – Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd.’s president Paul Rivett says its plans for Toys “R” Us are not limited to Canada, as it is exploring options to keep a foothold in the U.S. and elsewhere.The Toronto-based company, whose $300-million stalking horse offer for the Canadian subsidiary of the toy retailer was approved in a U.S. court this week, is looking for stores outside of Canada it can potentially snap up.“There’s pieces now we can invest in, pods of stores in the U.S., or elsewhere, and utilize the fact that they’ve got all the systems in Canada,” Rivett said in an interview Thursday after Fairfax’s annual general meeting of shareholders.A Virginia court approved the sale of Toys “R” Us Canada to Fairfax on Tuesday, ending the uncertainty looming the Canadian subsidiary after it filed for creditor protection in September, and the retailer’s U.S. division sought bankruptcy protection.The sale is scheduled to go before Ontario Superior Court on Friday.Fairfax had made a $300-million stalking horse offer last week, triggering an auction for Toys “R” Us’ 82 Canadian stores. Fairfax emerged as the only bidder.The Toronto-based company’s bid surpassed the $215-million bid made earlier this month, outside of the auction, by California-based, privately held toy company MGA Entertainment Inc.Fairfax, which is involved in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance and investment, had been keeping a close eye on Toys “R” Us Canada but it was a call from another toy-industry figure that prompted a closer look, Rivett said.Vic Bertrand Jr., of the family who founded toy maker Mega Brands best known for its building blocks, called Fairfax, according to Rivett. Fairfax had been a key investor in the Mega Blox maker until it was sold to American industry giant Mattel in 2014.“They said, ‘Listen, these folks at Toys “R” Us are saying there’s really a good viable business in Canada. Don’t let it die’… As a result of them calling us, we took another look,” Rivett said.The rationale to purchase included the Canadian subsidiary’s $100-million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, but the value of the stores themselves as well.Conservatively, the real estate portfolio is valued at $220 million but could be worth as much as the $300 million price-tag, Rivett added.Fairfax has brought in a third-party to assess the Canadian subsidiary’s stores, and several located in high-density areas have “significant value that might not have been properly appreciated.”“We have no current intention to do anything with the stores … (but) we’re value investors,” he said. “So when we buy something, we want to have the downside protection.”The Canadian stores will remain open, and the profits will remain in Canada and reinvested in the business instead of being extracted out by its U.S. parent in order to pay debtholders.“We’re going to let them keep their cash and reinvest in the business, and do better from an economic perspective,” Rivett said. “Change the store formats so it’s more inviting for families and kids, and move away from the big box that hasn’t changed over the last 20 years or so.”Companies in this story: (TSX:FFH)last_img read more

Parrikar loses battle with cancer

first_imgPanaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar passed away at his private residence here on Sunday evening after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 63.The condition of Parrikar, diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in February last year and in and out of hospitals in Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and New York since then, had turned “extremely critical” on Sunday, the Chief Minister’s Office tweeted earlier in the day. President Ram Nath Kovind expressed his grief. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day”Extremely sorry to hear of the passing of Shri Manohar Parrikar, Chief Minister of Goa, after an illness borne with fortitude and dignity,” he said in a tweet. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “Shri Manohar Parrikar was an unparalleled leader. A true patriot and exceptional administrator, he was admired by all.” Other leaders, cutting across party lines, mourned his death. The first Bharatiya Janata Party leader to be Goa Chief Minister, Parrikar headed the state from 2000-05 and 2012-14, before joining the Narendra Modi government as Defence Minister from 2014. Also Read – Don’t use ‘lynching’ to defame India: BhagwatThe country’s first Indian Institute of Technology alumnus to serve as Chief Minister of a state, he assumed the mantle on four occasions from 2000, but could not complete a single full term in office. The four-time Chief Minister had been seen in public outings over the past few months with a nasal tube and a frail form, which provoked opposition attacks on the ruling BJP. But in January this year, he had famously said that he “will serve Goa till my last breath.” Manohar Parrikar was known for his impeccable record and simple lifestyle. He was a leader accessible to the people and was often sighted enjoying a ride on his scooter. With Parrikar’s demise on Sunday, the BJP-led coalition in Goa has to search for a new leader to replace him. He was heading a coalition government comprising the BJP, Goa Forward Party, MGP and Independents. The death of the former defence minister, who represented the Panaji assembly seat, will also necessitate a fourth bypoll in Goa, where by-elections are scheduled for the Shiroda, Mandrem and Mapusa assembly constituencies on April 23. These will held in the state along with the Lok Sabha polls. “With CM Parrikar’s demise, the ruling coalition will have to make a fresh representation to the governor after choosing their leader. The representation will have the letter of support,” a senior official from State Legislature Department said. “If the governor (Mridula Sinha) is not convinced, then she will have to invite the single largest party to form a government,” he said. Parrikar, who was defence minister, was sworn in as Goa chief minister 2017 after he won from Panaji in the same year. The Congress is currently the single largest party in the state with 14 MLAs while the BJP has 13 in the 40-member Goa assembly. The Goa Forward Party, MGP and Independents have three MLAs each while NCP has one legislator. The strength House has been reduced to 36 due to the demise of BJP MLA Francis D’Souza earlier this year, and Parrikar on Sunday, and resignations of two Congress MLAs Subhash Shirodkar and Dayanand Sopte last year. After the news of Parrikar’s broke, the coalition partners have called emergency meetings. The three Goa Forward Party MLAs led by Vijai Sardesai and the MGP’s three MLAs met separately on Sunday evening. Following the death of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, the centre has announced a national mourning Monday and declared the National Flag will fly at half-mast across the country. The four-time chief minister will be accorded a state funeral. A meeting of the Union Cabinet has been called at 10 am as well. Manohar Parrikar’s body is to be kept at the BJP head office in Panaji on Monday morning. People will pay their final respects to the former defence minister from 11 am to 4 pm at Kala Academy in the state capital. The funeral procession will begin at 4 pm and the last rites will be performed at 5 pm at SAG grounds in Campal, approximately 4km from Panaji. See P7last_img read more

Calls continue call for Orange Shirt Day to become a national holiday

Dozens of people sit around four long tables, talking and tucking into pancakes topped with blueberries and maple syrup. Some are children, some are Elders; some are Indigenous, some aren’t — but every person wears an orange shirt.To Shirley Isbister, this is what reconciliation looks like — or at least the start of it.“I think that if we can all learn to live together, work together and play together, we’re going to be able to have a much stronger community,” said Isbister, who is president of the Central Urban Métis Federation Inc (CUMFI).“If we can’t bypass colour, culture, race, then how can our children be taught that?” Matt Smith / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Province, community groups rally behind ‘common vision’ for reconciliation Names of children who died in residential schools released in sombre ceremony Thousands walk for reconciliation on National Indigenous Peoples Day Residential school survivors honoured at annual flag raising Shirley Isbister is president of Central Urban Metis Federation Incorporated. CUMFI hosted a free community pancake breakfast to mark Orange Shirt Day, which honours residential school survivors, ’60s scoop survivors, day school survivors, families of MMIW and two-spirited peoples.

Georgina Jolibois, NDP Member of Parliament for Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River. Brad Bird, director of the reconciliation unit at Saskatoon Public Libraries and the son of a survivor, said the day is an opportunity to educate young people about the system’s legacy.“I don’t want my daughter to have to learn that alone,” he said. “I want to provide her with the opportunity to really understand the effects that it has. When we have rooms like this with people of all different backgrounds, ages and races, we come together, we learn together and we heal together.”Across town at Prairieland Park, hundreds of students from Saskatoon Public Schools attended a powwow hosted by Whitecap Dakota First Nation, where they were addressed by survivors of the residential school system. CUMFI joined organizations across the country in commemorating Orange Shirt Day, which honours survivors of the Indian residential school system that attempted to forcibly strip Indigenous peoples of their cultural identities.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Roughly 150,000 First Nations, Métis and Inuit children were forced to attend residential schools during their more than 150 years of operation. Thousands died, and many others endured lasting abuse.Orange Shirt Day is inspired by the story of Phyllis Webstad, a six-year-old girl who received an orange shirt from her grandmother for her first day of class at St. Joseph Mission residential school near Williams Lake, B.C. in 1976. Staff took her shirt away. Isbister said she hopes the motion eventually passes — and that it will be more than just a day off.“I don’t just want it to be a national holiday,” she said. “I want it to be a day of learning, a day when people know why we’re having that holiday.”“It was a national tragedy that we all allowed to happen for 150 years,” Arcand said. “So why not make it a national holiday to commemorate those people who suffered?”zvescera@postmedia.comtwitter.com/zakvesceraRelated Dancers take part in the Grand Entry at the Welcome Back Wacipi Powwow hosted by Saskatoon Public Schools at Prairieland Park. Matt Smith / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Lorna Arcand, who works to promote reconciliation in Saskatoon, said honouring survivors who are still living is a crucial part of the day.“We honour them for the sacrifices they made on our behalf,” Arcand said. “And when I say ‘our,’ I mean society.”Many attendees said they feel Orange Shirt Day should become a statutory holiday. If it does, it would be the first and only one dedicated to Indigenous peoples in Canada.Georgina Jolibois, the NDP MP representing Desnethé—Missinippi—Churchill River, proposed a bill in 2017 to make June 21 — National Indigenous Peoples Day — a national holiday.The Liberals reworked her bill, changing the date to Sept. 30 and renaming it.

EXCLUSIVE 30 use people analytics to calculate benefits return on investment

EXCLUSIVE 30 use people analytics to calculate benefits return on investment

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: Less than one-third (30%) of employer respondents use people analytics to calculate the cost, impact, and return on investment (ROI) of reward and benefits in their organisation, according to research by Equiniti.Its survey of 202 employers, conducted by Employee Benefits, also found that 59% of respondents cite an inability to justify additional spending as a reason why they are unable to enhance their reward and benefits programmes.The research also found:81% of respondents who know how much they spend on reward and benefits as a percentage of payroll, spend less than 20% of payroll.Just over one in 10 (11%) respondents offer financial education to their employees.Among respondents who spend a portion of their HR budget on helping employees with retirement planning, 7% is the average amount of their HR budget these respondents spend.Attracting and retaining top talent is one of the key drivers for offering a reward and benefits package, yet the average amount of HR budget spent on career progression is 16%, while 46% of HR budget is spent on inductions.Ric Williams (pictured), chief executive officer at EQ Paymaster, part of the Equiniti group, said: “HR should have some of the best data in the business. Our survey has shown that [it is] still struggling to fully harness the power of that data. Very few, only 12%, are actually collating it and making use of it.“A business-led approach to HR makes it easier to justify investment in HR initiatives and also generates much stronger executive support. Our findings suggest HR has the opportunity to gain more visibility, pull together data from across the business and, in turn, demonstrate ROI.”Andrew Woolnough, director, employee platform and engagement at EQ Paymaster, added: “Improving the employee experience brings proven benefit to the bottom line. Part of the challenge HR faces is justifying the investment in an integrated reward and benefits strategy. Our survey highlights the need to align HR measures to business metrics, for example, how employee advocacy builds corporate brand value or the impact of career opportunities on profit growth.”last_img read more

Man leaves infant daughter in car during snowstorm gets drunk inside bar

first_imgGREEN BAY, Wis. (WSVN) — A Wisconsin man has been arrested after he left his infant daughter alone in the car during a snowstorm, while he got drunk in a bar.Surveillance video shows what appears to be a normal bar scene — patrons gathered at the bar enjoying their drinks. However, inside the bar was also Merriett Cox. Cox appeared to be fine at first, but after a while, the bartender said Cox appeared to be extremely intoxicated, even falling from his barstool.The bartender then refused to serve Cox, and even took away his keys.After calling the bar’s owner for help getting Cox out of the bar in a cab, Cox asked the bar owner to check on “his girl” who had been outside in his car for about three hours.The girl ended up being Cox’s two-and-a-half-month-old daughter who, at the urging of others, he finally brought inside.The bar owner called police, and Cox was arrested. Police cared for the child, who was taken to the hospital and was OK. She was later released to her mother.“The child’s mother was working,” said officer Tim Styka. “Mom was putting in 12 to 14 hour days and when mom found out about it, she was crushed, upset, angry, horrified.” Cox has since been released on bond –but was ordered not to have any contact with the child.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

How Americans Really Feel About Drones

How Americans Really Feel About Drones

first_img(Credit: Shutterstock)If you’re a fan of drone technology or a drone pilot yourself, it’s easy to think the tech is mainstream. It’s not.And it turns out drone owners are just a small sliver of Americans — just 8 percent own a flying drone, according to a December 2017 study from Pew Research Center. Even though many people don’t own drones, almost 60 percent have seen someone operating one.As of January, more than 1 million people have registered as drone owners with the FAA. That includes both hobbyist and commercial drone owners. The mandatory registration was initially instituted in 2015 but was found illegal in 2017 — it was reinstated in December 2017. But How Do Americans Feel About Drones?While Americans are certainly becoming more exposed to drone tech, they still have mixed feelings about it. The study found 58 percent of people would simply be curious, and 45 percent said they would be interested, if they saw a drone flying near their home. Only 26 percent would be nervous, and about one in 10 would be angry or scared.In the past, drone pilots have been physically and verbally assaulted when flying (even while following the FAA’s rules, mind you). One woman even stole a drone, lied a bunch and tried to get the pilot in trouble with the police. It’s about a 16-minute video, but it’s worth the watch.[embedded content]Security is often cited as a concern for many people when it comes to drone use. More than 50 percent of people surveyed in the Pew study think drones shouldn’t be allowed to fly near homes, crime scenes or traffic accidents. Police and fire departments are using drones to help document crime scenes, reconstruct traffic accidents and in rescue efforts. More than 40 percent believe it’s fine to fly drones in public parks — a common flying space for many drone pilots, myself included.Of course, there have been instances of people flying maliciously and recklessly: smuggling drugs into prisons, crashing onto the White House lawn, flying through a moving freight train (watch the video for yourself). But drone tech, like any other tech can be used for good, especially in science. Getting airborne efficiently and cheaply is helping researchers monitor polar bears, measure vital signs from the sky, save fawns from tractor blades and even discover ancient cities.last_img read more
