Canada pays $ 1.85 billion to support retirees during pandemic


Canadian retirees will receive a one-time payment of $300 to $500 ($ 220-370) from the government to cover additional costs during a pandemic.


“If you receive pension benefits, you will get extra $300 to cover the costs of the virus. It implies that almost seven million elderly people will get the necessary assistance throughout the country. To support the most assailable older people, we will also charge an additional $200 to those who receive an increased pension, ”Trudeau said.

“Some weeks ago, we already increased subsidization so that organizations can deliver products to older people and help them stay in touch with loved ones during a pandemic. We are making a new contribution in order to make more programs to help isolated elderly people and better their quality of life, ” the Prime Minister added.


His office specified that in general, the Government of Canada provided $2.5 billion (about $1.85 billion) for new programs of direct financial assistance to pensioners.

Ottawa dressed in tulip colors

The world's largest tulip festival was held only for locals and online.

Not every city in the world has its glorious traditions of celebrating the arrival of spring. Some of them are ancient, some modern, but they all fill the residents with pleasant feelings due to the long-awaited onset of warm weather. In Ottawa, such a glorious spring tradition is the Tulip Festival, which takes place in May and during which the capital of Canada becomes brightly colorful.


Usually about 650 thousand visitors come to enjoy the incomparable beauty of tulips in May Ottawa. Colorful flowers become the backdrop for various art and entertainment events that take place throughout the city.


However, as in other areas, COVID-19 completely destroyed the current festival plans, because all public events were canceled. Fortunately, the authorities decided not to follow the example of the Netherlands and not destroy the flowers already planted, but moved the festival online.


Instead of walking along bright flower beds, Canadians longing for beauty were urged to enjoy the flowers from the comfort of their own home: the organizers regularly carried out streams from the fields and showed beautiful flowers. Although the parks with tulips were not physically closed, only those who could get there on foot or by bicycle were allowed to personally visit. At first, the authorities even wanted to ban photographing near tulips in order to avoid the formation of crowds, but subsequently abandoned this plan.


The festival eventually took place, but with little amount of visitors and without any additional celebrations. Instead of 650 thousand visitors, millions of tulips in Ottawa this year were admired by the force of several tens of thousands of local residents. The Ottavians were attentive to the recommendations of doctors, observing the distance and using protective masks. Of course, tourism was hit hard, but the locals were almost the first to calmly enjoy the surrounding beauty.


Nevertheless, just as flowers come to life every spring from hibernation, so mankind will soon overcome a pandemic and learn to contemplate the beautiful together again. Live, not online.

Ottawa canceled all summer festivals for corona virus

For the first time no summer festival will be held because of the corona virus in the capital of Ottawa this year.

About this the mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson,wrote on Twitter .

“Based on the guidances of the Ottawa Department of Health, the town will extend the ban on all special occasion until August 31,” said Watson.

He emphasized that “we must remain alert and focus on the health and safeness of all.”

The ban included all occassions in Ottawa, in which more than 500 people are expected to attend. Smaller events do not require special permission from the city, but still must adhere to the requirements of the provincial authorities, which now prohibit gathering in groups of more than 5 people.

The decision of the Ottawa authorities will lead to the cancellation of the Ukrainian festival, which was held for five years in a row in the capital of Canada in July.

Canada will allocate more than $450 million to support science during the pandemic

“It’s clear that people are worried about their work and future. Therefore, we allot 450 million dollars to help researchers and research institutions in overcoming difficult times,” Trudeau said.

“Universities and related research institutes that have suffered from this pandemic will be temporarily assisted with salary payments. Having allocated these funds through grants from federal agencies, we will quickly support those who need it, ” said the head of the Canadian government.

His office specified that the allocated funds would allow covering several months of 75% of the salaries of research center employees for several months, regardless of whether the institution works or not.

Canada will not hurry up to open borders

The Canadian government is following the development of the COVID-19 pandemic very carefully, considering the decision to open borders for foreigners.


“An important element in preventing a second wave of infection, which may be more serious than the one we are now overcoming, will be to prevent the virus from entering from outside Canada as soon as we take it under internal control. Therefore, we will be very careful in restoring international travel (including to the USA) until we feel that the time has come, ”Trudeau said.


He emphasized that everyone was focused on reducing the number of COVID-19 infections in order to restart certain sectors of the economy.

“This should be done gradually, with great vigilance. It is necessary to verify the availability of mechanisms and materials to counter future coronaviruses, ”summed up the head of the Canadian government.


It was reported that in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, Canada closed borders for most foreigners in March. The restrictions on crossing the land border with the United States expire on May 21, but the ban can be extended by mutual agreement.

Government of Canada redeems surplus products from farmers for charity

The Canadian authorities will buy surplus products from farmers and donate them to charity.


“We will create a program for the repurchase of surplus foodstuffs, whose initial budget amounted to $50 million. — said Trudeau.

He explained that due to the closure of hotels and restaurants, the output of some products exceeds demand.

“Now there is no way to redistribute such a large amount of food. Some manufacturers had no choice but to throw away their products. This is a waste and loss of income for people who work hard to produce food, ” said the Prime Minister.


According to him, the new government program will help make sure that “our farmers receive compensation for their hard work, and the most vulnerable people have access to fresh food during this crisis.”

International fashion designer Priyanka Mallick joined at COP27, Egypt.

International fashion designer Priyanka Mallick joined COP27 in Egypt , virtually. She is a community adviser and member of the United Nations International and the Royal Commonwealth Society of the United Kingdom. She attended the meetings of the Food System Pavilion by FAO and UNFCC. She raised her voice about the climate emergency , hunger crisis, and gender equality for climate justice.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 closed with a breakthrough agreement to provide “loss and damage” funding for vulnerable countries hit hard by climate disasters.


“This outcome moves us forward,” said Simon Stiell, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary. “We have determined a way forward on a decades-long conversation on funding for loss and damage – deliberating over how we address the impacts on communities whose lives and livelihoods have been ruined by the very worst impacts of climate change.”


Set against a difficult geopolitical backdrop, COP27 resulted in countries delivering a package of decisions that reaffirmed their commitment to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The package also strengthened action by countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the inevitable impacts of climate change, as well as boosting the support of finance, technology and capacity building needed by developing countries.


Creating a specific fund for loss and damage marked an important point of progress, with the issue added to the official agenda and adopted for the first time at COP27.


Governments took the ground-breaking decision to establish new funding arrangements, as well as a dedicated fund, to assist developing countries in responding to loss and damage. Governments also agreed to establish a ‘transitional committee’ to make recommendations on how to operationalize both the new funding arrangements and the fund at COP28 next year. The first meeting of the transitional committee is expected to take place before the end of March 2023.


Parties also agreed on the institutional arrangements to operationalize the Santiago Network for Loss and Damage, to catalyze technical assistance to developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.


COP27 saw significant progress on adaptation, with governments agreeing on the way to move forward on the Global Goal on Adaptation, which will conclude at COP28 and inform the first Global Stocktake, improving resilience amongst the most vulnerable. New pledges, totaling more than USD 230 million, were made to the Adaptation Fund at COP27. These pledges will help many more vulnerable communities adapt to climate change through concrete adaptation solutions. COP27 President Sameh Shoukry announced the Sharm el-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda, enhancing resilience for people living in the most climate-vulnerable communities by 2030. UN Climate Change’s Standing Committee on Finance was requested to prepare a report on doubling adaptation finance for consideration at COP28 next year.

The author Writer Bhaiya finally spoke about his life and revealed where he hailed from

Writer Bhaiya, also known as Aditya Singh, is an Indian Author who published the book “The Cycle of Reasons: — 24 Reasons”


Writer Bhaiya has been yielding unreleased compositions for years when publishing houses were more well-known than self-publishing. On the occasion of his birthday, he addressed a group and shattered his curtain of silence when questioned about his childhood, career, and personal life.


Statement over Early Life


In response to a question regarding how his life drove him to reserve Writer Bhaiya as a pen name unintentionally; as mentioned by him on his Instagram story, the beloved author Writer Bhaiya made the following statement:-

“I go by the pen name Writer Bhaiya online as a token of love, but as the proportion of people is cognizant, my forename is Aditya Singh stepped into the world at merely six months as a premature baby in Mumbai on October 2nd.


In the 20th century, my family immigrated to Mumbai from Bihar. I attended high school in Mumbai. As a young child, I caused trouble and was typically mischievous to everybody around me. I grew up to be a reserved person in school after a certain age as a response to childhood and generational trauma.


Everything in 2016 began abruptly as a part of my chaotic life when I began to express myself with a pen in my hand on a piece of paper after sobbing one day over not being able to express myself how I wanted to. As a teen, I started to compose Hindi Shayari and poems. I eventually started penning fictional short tales, poetry, and letters devoted to my friends with compassion and love. My life took unexpected turns in 2017, which bounded me to chronicle my suffering in a journal.


I joined Instagram in 2017. In 2018, I began sporadically sharing my writings on Instagram Stories. My composed piece of prose on stories caught the attention of my loved ones & acquaintances more often than in everyday life, where I would disguise most of my crafted work. As time passed, my acquaintances began referring to me as a WRITER. Pairing the title my companions drew me and the premise that I was a Bihari dwelling in Mumbai, some people alluded me as Bhaiya in an unkind and insulting manner, prompting me to share the title: — Writer Bhaiya as my PEN NAME.

In the years 2017 and 2019, I suffered from depression twice. I battled ADHD struggles for years without recognising it was ADHD, and have been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks for two years. Since 2018, I have produced unpublished works every year and have worked as a ghostwriter for a year on different platforms.”


Statement over Career


Writer Bhaiya outlined his family in regard to his story to a person in the group who hugged him and sobbed in front of him questioning; if people are worthy of lingering as writers despite disobeying their parents.


“My family was unaware of the outcome of fear I held to my heart to notify them that I had released my first book after penning articles for entities and ghostwriting for savings on the internet because I had never aspired in childhood to stand destined as an author.


In 2022, I published a book titled “The Cycle Of Reasons:- 24 Reasons” as everyone present here is aware.


In an effort to; safeguard one life, I penned 24 reasons to continue existing in the world and journeying as a wanderer in pursuit of serenity and tranquilly and to recognise his responsibility to others as a writer and a debut author. Follow where your heart leads you with your career,” says Writer Bhaiya implies them that they can if they have a lamp in their hearts.


Statement over Personal life


Adding to his previous answer, Writer Bhaiya said, “I was born in a Hindu Family. I had strong ties with my family while I was young, but as I became a grown-up, my ties with them were erratic and periodically unfortunate as the clash of trauma made me numb as a teen.”


In striving to retain a boundary among his personal, social, and professional lives, writer Bhaiya adheres to a professional code of ethics. As a response, he denied politely asking to refrain from such questions, which made limited information to be verified; about his personal life in general.


However, he is said to have a girlfriend who has been with him since they were in high school.


His depression in 2019 drove him to consider suicide a second time, and he disclosed as considerably on Instagram, saying that if the light didn’t break through the sea of his darkness, he almost gave up on life.
