Winners losers from the federal cabinet shuffle

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shuffled his front benches Wednesday to install the roster of ministers that will be entrusted with leading the Liberal team into next year’s election. Here’s a look at some of the winners and losers of the shuffle, and areas where the jury is still out:WinnersPablo Rodriguez – The four-term MP from Quebec and current chief government whip takes over as heritage minister from Melanie Joly. Now the first-time minister just needs to find a way to appease Quebecers angry at the government’s deal with Netflix. The agreement didn’t require the online streaming giant pay a content levy to fund production of Canadian content, which has sparked fears it will push out Quebec companies that do have to charge tax. Netflix has agreed to invest $500 million into Canadian programming over the next five years, but critics say there is nothing binding the company to its promise to create French-language content. The issue is seen as one of the Liberals’ biggest Achilles heels in the province heading into the 2019 federal election.Mary Ng and Bill Blair — Ng’s star is rising, as the Toronto MP becomes minister of small business just over a year after being elected to Parliament in a byelection. Former Toronto police chief Blair is being rewarded with the new post of minister of border security and organized crime reduction for helping the Liberals stickhandle the legalization of recreational marijuana.Ontario and the GTA — The Liberal cabinet got more Ontario-centric with the addition of Ng, Blair and Hamilton MP Filomena Tassi as minister for seniors. The province now accounts for 15 of 35 seats at the cabinet table, of which nine are filled by MPs from the Greater Toronto Area.Dominic LeBlanc — As fisheries minister, LeBlanc oversaw a department with a large budget and hundreds of employees. He loses all that as minister for intergovernmental and northern affairs as well as internal trade. But the New Brunswick MP and long-time Trudeau friend, who has never shied away from a fight, is now responsible for dealing with Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his ideological soulmates in other provinces that could threaten the Trudeau government’s agenda.Jim Carr — The Manitoba MP’s move from natural resources to international trade comes at a time when Canada desperately needs to find new trading partners given the uncertainty around NAFTA and as the Canada-EU trade deal faces increasing resistance across the Atlantic.Bill Morneau, Harjit Sajjan, Lawrence MacAulay, Carolyn Bennett, Marc Garneau, Ahmed Hussen — There was speculation heading into the shuffle that one or more would be demoted due to controversy, poor communication skills or their length of tooth. In the end, all emerged largely unscathed.The LosersMelanie Joly — Her rocky tenure as heritage minister came to an abrupt and inglorious end upon being shuffled into the more junior ministerial position overseeing tourism, official languages and la Francophonie. The writing had been on the wall for a while as the first-term Montreal MP drew poor reviews for failing to sell her home province on the Netflix deal.Northern Canada — It has been more than two years since Nunavut MP Hunter Tootoo resigned as fisheries minister to seek treatment for alcohol abuse. Since then, Trudeau’s cabinet has been bereft of northern representation despite the fact the Liberals swept the territories in 2015.Alberta — Some might say the province came out ahead as Edmonton MP Amarjeet Sohi was moved from infrastructure to natural resources, meaning an Albertan is directly responsible for the Trans Mountain pipeline. But Trudeau did not promote anyone from the province to replace Kent Hehr, leaving Alberta with one seat at the cabinet table.Jury’s Still OutFederal-Provincial Relations — The battlelines are already being drawn between the Trudeau government and Doug Ford as the Ontario premier makes clear his intention to fight the feds on a number of fronts. Provincial elections are also looming in Alberta and Quebec that could result in governments opposed to Trudeau’s agenda, even as the Liberals continue to face resistance from B.C. over the Trans Mountain pipeline. It’s unclear whether the shuffle will improve things.Francois-Philippe Champagne — There were big expectations the Quebec MP was in line for a promotion from international trade given his communication skills and energy. His appointment as infrastructure minister is instead being viewed as a lateral move at best given that Sohi had already done much of the heavy lifting on the file.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly described Netflix’s deal with the federal government.last_img read more

Artificial intelligence will fuel a new race between hackers and cybersecurity say

MONTREAL — Technological advances in artificial intelligence are fuelling a new race between hackers and those toiling to protect cybersecurity networks.Cybersecurity is always a race between offence and defence but new tools are giving companies that employ them a leg up on those trying to steal their data.Whereas past responses to cybercrimes often looked for known hacking methods long after they occurred, AI techniques using machine learning scan huge volumes of data to detect patterns of abnormal behaviour that are imperceptible to humans.Experts expect machines will become so sophisticated that they’ll develop answers to questions that humans won’t clearly understand.David Decary-Hetu, assistant professor of criminology at the University of Montreal, says defenders have an edge right now in using artificial intelligence.From tech giants to banks, demand for AI talent turns once-staid conference into recruiting draft dayEthical worries are beginning to slow down Alphabet’s AI health-care initiative“But who knows what’s going to happen in a few years from now,” he said in an interview.“The main issue is that if you’re defending a system you have to be good 100 per cent of the time, but when you’re attacking the system you only have to be successful once to get in.”Decary-Hetu said a growing list of corporate and government officials, including Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz, who say infiltrations are their top worry have a very good reason to fear.The Bank of Canada warned in its semi-annual review released this month that the high degree of interconnectedness among Canadian financial institutions means any successful cyberattack could spread widely throughout the financial system.Reports suggest cybercrime costs the Canadian economy between $3 billion and $5 billion a year, including ransom paid to foreign criminals.Hacks of Sony Pictures, Uber, Ashley Madison, Yahoo and multinational retailers have sparked unsettling headlines about security of personal information.One of the latest to face scrutiny is global credit-reporting firm Equifax. Hackers accessed the personal information, including names, social insurance and credit card numbers, as well as usernames, passwords and secret question/secret answer data of 19,000 Canadians and 145.5 million Americans.Current detection systems tend to only recognize improper activity based on past events, often long after the damage is done.An example of this is Equifax, which discovered the breach in July, months after hackers first infiltrated the system. It only notified the public in early September.Niranjan Mayya, founder and CEO of Toronto-based Rank Software, said it takes on average 143 days for a breach to be detected.The challenge is growing as the number of connected devices in the world continues to soar.“Clearly the old style techniques of looking at cybersecurity threats and having people go through each threat aren’t working anymore, so automated means of detecting threats has become more and more important,” he said.David Masson, Canadian manager for U.K.-based Darktrace, said artificial intelligence will help to keep up with threats by quickly identifying and stopping attacks by picking up on subtle markers that identify bad behaviour.He said his company’s systems map a customer’s entire network, including every user and device, to discern even the slightest deviations as they emerge.Masson said AI is needed to keep up with threats by automating defence responses to growing machine-on-machine attacks launched by sophisticated hackers.“You’re kind of looking at a cyber arms race,” he said in an interview.“If you want to keep up with this threat and put the advantage back in the hands of the defenders you’re gonna have to use AI.”Ontario-based utilities company Energy+ Inc. said installed Darktrace technology alerted it to a user going to a malware site in Russia and uploading undisclosed sensitive data to a third-party cloud provider that its existing security was unable to catch.Some observers temper the current exuberance about AI, saying it’s not a silver bullet and these are nascent days for the technology.Receptiviti CEO Jonathan Kreindler says the hype around artificial intelligence has accelerated and has almost become a branding exercise for some companies that aren’t even offering truly leading edge technology.“The term AI is now being applied to any sort of algorithmic reasoning unfortunately,” said Kreindler.His firm uses AI to scour writings for unconscious use of language to understand the psychological state of company insiders who are responsible for 80 per cent of cybersecurity issues.Canada’s largest IT company, CGI Group, said artificial intelligence is a growing field of interest for customers, although the average client is in the fairly early stages of considering AI adoption in cybersecurity.CGI cybersecurity expert Andrew Rogoyski said that still puts them one step ahead of most hackers, who are typically interested in stealing data using the cheapest tools possible.Rogoyski added that he expects a strengthening of defensive mechanisms might force hackers to also adopt innovative techniques such as AI.“There’s a race, it’s been going on for 20 years plus and the race just keeps evolving. We keep leapfrogging each other,” he said. read more

Liberia honours UN for key role in wartorn countrys recovery and development

“Our nation owes its gratitude to you, Mr. Doss, for the leadership you have exhibited in bringing this team together, in keeping it together, in getting the kinds of responses that has enabled us to be where we are today,” President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf told Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative Alan Doss during the festive event held in the coastal city of Buchanan in the south-east.Mr. Annan’s Deputy Special Representative for Recovery and Good Governance Jordan Ryan was similarly honoured at the ceremony, attended by traditional leaders, government officials and members of the public.“For them, it’s not just a job, it is a commitment; a mission; it is even a passion with which they carry out their responsibilities,” Ms. Johnson-Sirleaf said as she and the traditional leaders of Grand Bassa County adorned the two honourees with traditional gowns.Elected in November 2005 in polls that the UN helped organize, the President praised the UN for “not only securing the peace, but also going beyond the call of duty to be a strategic partner to the Government to help us to achieve our development goals.”Mr. Doss thanked the president and the people of the West African country for recognizing the efforts of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and the UN family.“I have worked for the United Nations for 40 years and this is the high point of my career because I have had the chance to witness a country reinvent itself, come back to life, and look ahead to a better future,” he said. “That is an opportunity given to few people and I am extremely grateful to be a part of that process.”He recounted the achievements made over the last year, including the free and fair elections and the inauguration of Africa’s first democratically-elected female head of state, and he assured the people of Liberia that UNMIL would continue to its support. “A great deal still needs to be done. Roads have to be built, schools and clinics need to be fixed but we have to start somewhere,” he added.When UNMIL was established in September 2003, the country was in turmoil, awash in armed militias and with no functioning country-wide authorities.Since then, with UN assistance, tens of thousands of gunmen have been disarmed and reintegrated into society, hundreds of thousands of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) have returned safely to their homes, and the country’s destroyed infrastructure, including roads, bridges, schools, health posts and police stations, are being restored.UNMIL still fields some 15,850 military personnel and police in the country, supported by more than 500 international civilian personnel, 750 local staff and 250 UN Volunteers. read more

This Malicious USB Cable Can Remotely Accept Hacker Commands

first_img SteelSeries Arctis 1 Is World’s First USB-C Wireless Gaming HeadsetGeek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone Kit Stay on target A security researcher just created an “evil” USB cable that can remotely accept hacker commands with a few tech tweaks.On Sunday, Mike Grover demonstrated the security threat of this scenario by developing a generic-looking USB cable that can obtain commands from a nearby smartphone and carry them out on the PC it’s plugged into, PCMag reported.You like wifi in your malicious USB cables?The O•MG cable(Offensive MG kit) was a fun way to pick up a bunch of new skills.Not possible without help from: @d3d0c3d, @cnlohr, @IanColdwater, @hook_s3c, @exploit_agency #OMGCable— _MG_ (@_MG_) February 10, 2019Grover’s USB-to-lightning cable is fitted with a Wi-Fi chip inside one of the sockets, so unsuspecting users will think that this “typical” cable is safe to use with their computer. Unfortunately though, this seemingly ordinary cable will be detected by the computer as a Human Interface Device that resembles a keyboard or mouse.Here’s how Grover’s “attack” works: First, he plugs the USB cable into a MacBook laptop. Next, he uses his smartphone to remotely control the MacBook to visit a phony Google login webpage that can secretly obtain the owner’s important information, such as their password. The USB cable attack, which works on Linux, Mac, Windows, and iOS systems, can be programmed to mess up someone’s cellular hotspot or Wi-Fi as well.Grover told PCMag that he plans to produce more “malicious” USB cables to educate the public on the dangers of hacker attacks. “Showing attacks in an engaging way allows a wider audience to be aware of threats,” he told PCMag. “Getting this cable into the hands of other researcher[s] allow new uses and attacks to be explored. In the end, it leads to improved security.”More on Countries Agree Cars Must Have Automatic Breaking SystemsElon Musk ‘Confident’ SpaceX Ticket to Mars Will Cost Less Than $500KGoogle Maps AR Navigation Is Being Tested by Some Early Userslast_img read more

Trump to block refugees restrict Muslim visitors

first_imgMaya Casillas, 7, joins migrant rights group during a vigil to protest against US President Donald Trump’s new crackdown on “sanctuary cities”, outside the City Hall in Los Angeles. Photo: AFPPresident Donald Trump is on Thursday poised to suspend the US refugee program for four months and to halt visas for travellers from seven Muslim countries, according to US media.A draft executive order published in the Washington Post said refugees from war-torn Syria will be indefinitely banned, while the broader US refugee admissions program will be suspended for 120 days as officials draw up a list of low risk countries.Meanwhile, all visa applications from countries deemed a terrorist threat—Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen—will be halted for 30 days.Alongside this, the Pentagon will be given 90 days to draw up a plan to set up “safe zones” in or near Syria where refugees from its civil war can shelter.It is unclear whether the published draft is the final version, or when Trump will sign it, but it would make good on his campaign promises.Trump told ABC News late Wednesday that his plan to limit the entry of people from Muslim countries was necessary because the world is “a total mess.”“No it’s not the Muslim ban, but it’s countries that have tremendous terror,” Trump said. “And it’s countries that people are going to come in and cause us tremendous problems.”Trump refused to say which countries were on the list, but he did say he believed that Europe “made a tremendous mistake by allowing these millions of people to go into Germany and various other countries,” describing it as “a disaster.”Trump was asked if he worried that the limits would anger Muslims around the world.“Anger? There’s plenty of anger right now. How can you have more?” he said.“The world is a mess. The world is as angry as it gets. What, you think this is going to cause a little more anger? The world is an angry place. … We went into Iraq. We shouldn’t have gone into Iraq. We shouldn’t have gotten out the way we got out. The world is a total mess.”Playing into IS hands?Trump’s hardline attitude towards what he calls “radical Islamic terrorism” was one of the most controversial themes of his election campaign.Rights groups have accused him of stigmatizing a global faith, and some experts warn that offending America’s Muslim allies will hurt the fight against extremism.“Turning our back on vulnerable refugees doesn’t protect the United States,” said Michael Olsen, former director of the US National Counterterrorism Center.“In fact, it plays into ISIS’s false narrative that we are at war with all Muslims instead of terrorist organizations,” he told watchdog Human Rights First.Trump also vowed to “eradicate ISIS from the face of the earth”, which proved popular with US voters.Ryan Crocker, former US ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq, told the group that the executive order would threaten refugees who risked their lives to help US troops.“Banning the admission of Syrian refugees contradicts American values, undermines American leadership and threatens American security by making the ISIS case that we are at war with Islam,” he argued.No ‘major negative’ in Trump refugee planOther former officials, however, were not worried by the pending order—suggesting that while it has little use as a security measure, anger would blow over.James Jeffrey, who was deputy national security adviser under former president George W. Bush, said: “I don’t think there’ll be much of a change in anything.”Jeffrey argued that even under former president Barack Obama, the United States had allowed in very few Syrian refugees—only 18,000 since the war began in 2011.Meanwhile, allies in the Sunni Muslim world are far more concerned by the immediate threats posed by Iran and the Islamic State group than by US visa law.“So I don’t see a major negative in foreign affairs from this,” said Jeffrey, now a fellow of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.“We had a bad reputation no matter what we did even when we were being at our very very tippy-toe best with Barack Obama. It doesn’t matter,” he told AFP.“In populations there is a great deal of skepticism about the United States. It’s hard-wired, regardless of the president, no matter what we do.”The possible draft signing on Thursday would be the latest in a daily series of executive orders rolled out by Trump’s administration since he took office on Friday—touching on national security, immigration, and health care.Also Thursday, Trump is to speak before Republican lawmakers at their winter retreat in Philadelphia—an opportunity for him to reassure some of his party faithful about the actions of his provocative first week at the White House.last_img read more

Wii U appears on eBay for 99999 as preorders dry up

first_imgMany gamers may remain skeptical about the gaming experience Nintendo is set to offer with the launch of the Wii U. However, that doesn’t seem to have stopped people pre-ordering the new console en masse and to the point where they are now sold out at certain key locations.One example of this is GameStop, which has now ceased taking pre-orders as they have reached their hardware allocation limit. Other retailers are sure to follow soon.With pre-orders drying up the inevitable has happened and eBay is now starting to fill up with over-priced auctions for the new machine. A quick skim of the site reveals the $349.99 Wii U Deluxe being offered anywhere from $499.99 right up to a ridiculous $999.99 (with free shipping!). Would anyone really pay that?Depending on how fast Nintendo can ship out Wii U consoles in the run up to Christmas, there may be a shortage come December. At that point some people will start viewing $1,000 as acceptable to keep their kids happy on Christmas day rather than waiting a few weeks and saving $650.No one should be surprised by this as it happens around the launch of any new console. And it could be purely because Nintendo doesn’t have much stock of the machine due to problems manufacturing the GamePad.After a less than great Wii U introduction earlier this year, Nintendo must be happy with how the preview event went last week and that pre-orders are more than healthy for the new machine. Now they just need to deliver on the games and hope that Nintendo TVii is as good as it sounds.via The Verge and Kotakulast_img read more

The headlines this morning are proclaiming that the Cavs are in trouble, but Colin disagrees.Today in The Herd, Colin said that regardless of Cleveland’s struggles, they’ll still breeze through the Eastern Conference playoffs into the Finals, even if they end up as the two seed. LeBron already won a title as a two-seed with the Heat in 2012 with the Heat.Colin pointed out that as a two-seed, the Cavs would likely end up facing the Pacers, who are considerably less dangerous opponent than the Heat would be as the 8-seed.Either way, no one is stopping LeBron and the Cavs in the East, even if they don’t have home-court advantage against the Celtics in the conference finals.
