OTTAWA – The Canadian Transportation Agency is asking Canadians to help it develop regulations about the rights of air passengers, including how best to deal with tarmac delays, bumped seats and lost luggage.Under legislation given final approval last week, the agency is charged with drafting rules and, in most cases, setting minimum standards of treatment in order to establish a bill of rights for air travellers.Those interested in offering their thoughts can attend one of eight public sessions to be held across the country, fill in a questionnaire, or provide a written submission.The agency will also survey air travellers at selected airports.The consultations will continue until Aug. 28.Transport Minister Marc Garneau says the new rules will ensure that passengers are treated with respect and that airlines live up to their commitments.“These regulations will establish clear and consistent standards of treatment for all flights operating in Canada,” Garneau told a news conference.“In certain circumstances, they will include compensation for air travellers when things do not go as planned, when a flight is delayed, cancelled or overbooked and it is considered to be within the airline’s control.”For example, they will set time limits and treatment standards for tarmac delays.Ian Jack, managing director of the Canadian Automobile Association, which has been following the issue closely, said people have to ensure that the regulations provide what is needed. He said the transportation agency seems to be on track.“They’re are asking all the right questions, it seems to us,” he said. “We need to keep up the pressure to ensure Canadians get what they deserve.”The schedule for the public sessions:June 14: TorontoJune 18: VancouverJune 20: CalgaryJune 22: YellowknifeJune 25: WinnipegJune 27: MontrealJune 29: HalifaxJuly 4: Ottawa

The grass root level work has started as they go about setting up their respective parties. PTI A source close to Rajinikanth told Firstpost,“ A lot of people including a section of the media believe that Rajini sir is not serious about launching a political party On the contrary he is spending more time on setting up the party in his own way He wants to convert his fan base into well oiled party machinery He is keen on recruiting one crore volunteers in the next few weeks before he formally launches his party with a name and an ideology in tune with the aspiration of the people of Tamil Nadu” Rajinikanth will pick a committee of experts who will tour all the 32 districts in the state and they will appoint office bearers for his Rajini Mandrams in each district The idea is that the committee will vet the applicants and see that undesirable elements do not get into the party There are thousands of workers from other political parties who want to jump the ship and join Rajinikanth’s party looking for power and position in the new set-up The actor-turned-politician has told the committee that he is looking for people who will work for the party without any ulterior motives And those appointed cannot take their position for granted as everything will depend on their performance Rajinikanth wants a new set of people to join his party and is targeting the youth his core audience He has set a target of five lakh members for each district At the same time the membership drive will be further boosted by his online activities which Rajinikanth launched through an app on New Year’s Day The membership through the app is said to be nearing one million As of now at the ground level the membership drive will start from Vellore in undivided NSC (a film trade term for North Arcot-South Arcot-Chengalpet once Rajinikanth’s films’ highest collecting area in Tamil Nadu) It is clear that Rajinikanth believes that he will be able to convert his box office power into votes But what has added muscle to Rajinikanth political phenomena is an opinion poll conducted by India Today The poll predicted the superstar’s party will get 16 per cent votes and 33 seats in the 234-member Tamil Nadu assembly in the event of a mid-term poll being held The 16 per cent votes for Rajinikanth in the poll is double of what Vijaykanth got in his best ever performance in the 2011 elections However the poll predicted a victory for DMK and its leader MK Stalin with 130 seats Rajinikanth was the second most preferred choice for the chief minister’s post with 17 per cent votes for the superstar Strangely only four per cent of people want Kamal Haasan as chief minister Meanwhile on Wednesdayevening on MGR’s 101 st birthday Rajinikanth would be the chief guest at the pooja launch of the late chief minister’s dream project Kizhakku Africavil Raju It is being made as a motion capture film by Prabhu Deva Studios in association with Vels Film International The late MGR after he joined politics came out with a blockbuster Ulagam Sutrum Valiban (1973) The film had a tough time getting released as the then DMK government headed by Karunanidhi tried to stop its release After that the star who had just launched his party announced a new film again an action adventure to be shot around the world titled Kizhakku Africavil Raju The film never materialised as MGR got busy with his political career Now the film is being revived as a motion capture film and one of the producers is Prabhu Deva who was Rajinikanth’s favourite choreographer And the most important thing is Rajinikanth is going to launch the project at the iconic MGR’s Sathya Studio (which is now a women’s college) in Adyar The superstar will be making his first public appearance in Chennai after his announcement on joining politics The stage is set for Rajinikanth to be anointed as the next MGR in the making Now all that remains to be seen is whether the superstar’s political career will have a blockbuster opening Published Date: Jan 17 2018 10:50 AM | Updated Date: Jan 17 2018

will come in" senior party leader Kamal Nath said on Friday "I feel Rahul should become the President I certainly have much more experience I have seen Indira Gandhi Rajiv Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi" he said while dismissing the opinion of senior leaders Amarinder Singh and Sandeep Dikshit that Sonia should continue at the helm and it’s still time for Rahul to learn Kamal Nath in a file photo PTI Nath said this speaking to Karan Thapar on Headlines Today Insisting that there was "no right time or no wrong time" for Rahul to take over he said there has been a transition in politics and "there is a fatigue factor and it is time Congress must position Rahul Gandhi" Nath said he was not advocating that Sonia should retire and "she can eventually be the mentor of the party" He also described as "totally incorrect" that 97 to 99 per cent of partymen wanted Sonia to continue and suggested the difference of opinion was only about the timing of Rahul’s elevation Insisting that keeping in mind the fatigue factor the party "must position Rahul" for the leadership role Nath said that Sonia may have a role "where she can guide she can be a mentor" The remarks have come amid a raging debate in the party on leadership issue and indications that Rahul may be anointed as party chief after an AICC session Nath also said that the sabbattical has done lot of good to Rahul who has now become "more active and more incisive" in public and expressed confidence that the Congress Vice President will keep up the momentum Replying to a volley of questions whether Rahul’s Kedarnath visit was intended to remove the impression of Congress being pro-minority and anti-Hindu Nath said the visit was a "totally apolitical" affair and not aimed at any community "What took him (Rahul) was his personal faith and not politics He was there at the opening of Kedarnath temple which is considered auspicious "His decision to go there was a matter of faith There is no politics involved" he said arguing that had Rahul not gone there on the day of the opening of the temple there would have been a charge that Congress was leaning towards minorities "Nobody is leaning towards anybody" he said adding that the Congress does not function that way His remarks came a day Rahul trekked to the revered Kedarnath shrine covering a distance of 16 km Asked what wish he had asked in the temple Gandhi said he did not ask for anything "Usually when I go to a temple I don’t wish for anything That is my habit I don’t ask I went to the temple and did not ask anything But I went inside I experienced some fire-like energy" the Congress Vice President said Nath reminded that Sonia Gandhi had also visited a number of temples "Rahul has just started., She took almost five years to come back on screen with

to the private sector to enable skill development has been devoid of terse quality protocols (Source: PTI) Related News BY:Anoop K Satpathy and Nikhil Raj But will a nodal ministry at the Centre solve all issues in a federal structure such as ours India stands at the cusp of a demographic dividend and several people have expressed the urgent need to leverage this dividend to enable jumps in GDP growth The formation of the National Skill Development Mission (NSDM) signalled the high priority attached to skill development The NSDM created three distinct structures namely the Prime Minister’s National Council on Skill Development the Skill Development Coordination Board at the Planning Commission and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) The first two were subsequently shelved and replaced by the National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) The NSDC however was retained as an entity under the NSDM Now the NDA government has brought all skill development initiatives under one umbrella ministry probably motivated by various governance and management issues Rapid change in the policy focus on skill development with attendant modifications in governance structures reflected that initially the preferred approach was for the implementation to be done in mission mode rather than as a regular Centrally sponsored scheme But the mission mode approach failed to achieve the desired momentum and monitor and regulate the activities of various stakeholders thereby undermining the delivery of sufficient numbers of skilled manpower to potential employers It also showed that skill development initiatives both in government and the private sector were far too stretched and hence needed to be coordinated and monitored by a nodal agency There were about 17 ministries and departments directly or indirectly contributing to skill development Apart from the NSDC the ministries of labour and employment and human resource development were deeply involved During the last few years however the focus seems to have shifted from developing suitable implementation strategies for these ministries and departments The government has been funding private skills/ training providers to impart market-driven skills to the target group The support to the private sector to enable skill development has been devoid of terse quality protocols The governance management quality assurance and monitoring frameworks are at variance across various skill development schemes Even for similar types of skills or trades provisions differ in terms of target groups per-trainee cost duration curriculum pedagogy competency testing and certification systems Skills gap analysis is yet to be institutionalised as a process that informs the design and implementation of skill development programmes Skills required by the manufacturing sector which needs a relatively high dose of capital investment do not find many service providers (apart from the established Industrial Training Institutes) Assuming that budgetary resources have not been a constraint the supply-demand mismatch continues to be a critical gap Further in terms of growth in the rural non-farm sector skill development in rural areas was seen to provide in situ opportunities of employment for youth However skills training at present is largely confined to urban locations (at best district headquarters) and industrially advanced regions within states With no emphasis on imparting “marketable skills” and poor linkages between training and post-training employment there have been few improvements in the labour market outcome of training in terms of improved earnings Largescale outsourcing by big players in the skill development space to smaller players at the local level (apparently against the programme guidelines of various schemes) further affected the quality of the workforce being trained In practice even if employment were assured under certain schemes the tenure of employment provided was not sustainable The follow-up by private providers was limited to ensuring continued employment The aggregate picture was of a number of scattered initiatives working towards a national agenda The urgency to put skill development at the core of the development agenda is reflected in what Prime Minister Narendra Modi refers to as the trio of “skill speed and scale” The formation of the new ministry of skill development needs to be viewed in this perspective But even as the government gives physical shape to the skill development ministry there are a few aspects that warrant deliberation to build a more cohesive implementation design for skill development For instance will the NSDA emerge as a regulatory standardisation and oversight body (such as the AICTE) much needed in the lower-rung skills space Further with the NSDC to be merged with the new ministry any change in the autonomy of similar agencies will have to be jointly agreed on by government and industry as a number of private companies contribute to the NSDC’s skill development targets The HRD ministry’s target of skilling 50 million persons and the ministry of labour’s target of skilling 100 million people is largely sought to be achieved through the expansion of polytechnics and the Skill Development Initiative Scheme (SDIS) respectively Designing relevant course curriculum evaluation and certification will require detailed discussion Large programmes such as the Craftsmen Training Scheme managed by the labour ministry that have elaborate institutional structures for delivery will be difficult to merge and need to be considered if the ministry is not to become yet another coordinating and review platform With a number of departments providing similar skills particularly those at the base of the skill pyramid de-duplication of effort is needed for improved efficiency in resource utilisation And what about a closer look at the programmes and agencies engaged in the skill development of people at the upper rungs of the skill pyramid What about the University Grants Commission the AICTE and the Medical Council of India Would these be left out or be brought under the skill development ministry Do we take that the skill development ministry is mandated only for skill development of persons at the lower rungs of the skill pyramid Will convergence at the Central level solve all pertinent issues relating to skill development in a federal structure such as ours and when vocational training and skill development is listed as a subject matter under the Concurrent List Almost all skill development programmes are implemented by respective departments at the state level and inter alia through their nodal agencies at the district level Viewed from this perspective it is safe to conclude that unless convergence is concurrently taking place at the state level its full benefits at the aggregate level may not reach target groups In the short run however the state skill development missions that have been set up under the leadership of respective chief ministers could serve as umbrella entities to liaise with the new ministry Better matching of supply with demand imparting quality skills and improved labour market outcomes for trainees should ideally form the nucleus of the agenda for the new ministry with adequate focus on standardisation of content
