first_imgOTTAWA — The department responsible for security on Parliament Hill is apologizing after an apparent incident of racial profiling took place on Parliament Hill this week.A spokesman for the Parliamentary Protective Service says the force is investigating the incident, which took place Monday during an event known as Black Voices on the Hill.Joseph Law, the chief of staff to the director of the PPS, says the department “has zero tolerance for any type of discrimination,” and it took action as soon as it learned of the incident.The Federation of Black Canadians says several participants in Monday’s lobbying event were referred to as “dark-skinned people” and asked to leave a parliamentary cafeteria.The federation says it has requested a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as it seeks a “formal commitment to end racial profiling at the federal level.”It’s also asked for a meeting with House of Commons Speaker Geoff Regan to seek an official apology.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_img(Vicki Monague filed complaint over RCMP’s handling of her criminal allegation of domestic violence against Onion Lake Cree Nation Chief Wallace Fox. Photo supplied by Monague.)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsThe RCMP is probing complaints filed against officers from the Onion Lake Cree Nation detachment over their handling of a domestic violence allegation against Chief Wallace Fox, APTN National News has learned.Fox, the long-time chief of the Saskatchewan First Nation, was charged Monday with two counts of assault, one count of possession of a dangerous weapon and one count of uttering threats to damage property stemming from a domestic incident at his Onion Lake residence. He is scheduled to appear in provincial court on Dec. 16.Toronto-based investigators with the RCMP Professional Standards Unit are also currently probing how the Onion Lake RCMP detachment handled the allegations against Fox.The probe was triggered after the alleged victim filed a complaint with the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP.The charges were laid nearly six months after Vicki Monague, who is from Beausoleil First Nation in Ontario, filed her criminal allegation against Fox with the RCMP detachment at Onion Lake.A spokesperson for Fox said he would not be commenting on the charges because the matter is now before the courts.Monague said she was informed by the Saskatchewan Crown last week that he had recommended charges against Fox. Still, she said she was “shocked” when Fox was finally charged.“This has been going on now for nearly six months. We didn’t know how to feel about it. I think we are in kind of shock mode right now and we are starting to figure out what this actually means,” said Monague. “I think for me and my kids especially the hardest part has been the anxiety attacks and watching somebody that we know personally behind closed doors on the news, in media articles on social media being an advocate for murdered and missing Indigenous women.”Monague said she filed her complaints against the detachment’s officers in Onion Lake because she felt they didn’t take her domestic violence allegations seriously. Monague said she was initially told by one officer at the Onion Lake detachment that she had to appear in person if she wanted to press any charges against Fox.“I was fearful of my husband and left Onion Lake Cree Nation to return home,” said Monague, in her letter of complaint dated July 3. “I was also fearful that had I pressed charges, Wallace Fox, being the chief, would have interfered with those charges proceeding through political means.”Staff Sgt. Paul Dickinson and a sergeant from the RCMP’s Professional Standards Unit interviewed Monague on Oct. 1 about her complaint against four RCMP officers, including three from the Onion Lake detachment and the staff-sergeant who originally handled her complaint against the detachment. The interview was held at the OPP detachment in Midland, Ont.The Onion Lake detachment commander has already received “verbal operational guidance in the area of compassion when dealing with victims of crime” as a result of the complaints, according to a copy of a complaint intake document obtained by APTN.Monague said she had been living with Fox since October 2014 and had been involved in a relationship with him since July of the same year. The alleged incident occurred at Fox’s residence on May 13, said Monague.Monague said she filed her domestic violence allegations on May 18 after she arrived in Beausoleil First Nation, in Ontario, following a four-day drive from Saskatchewan.Monague said she and her children, aged 11, 12 and 14, issued sworn statements before a commissioner of oaths on June 8 alleging domestic violence. Monague said she gave her statement at the Midland police detachment and her children issued their statements at the Anishinabek police detachment.Monague said the statements were sent by Purolator Courier but were not picked up by Onion Lake RCMP until June 30, according to her letter of complaint.“I have seen corruption within the Onion Lake RCMP and they have failed to protect me and my children,” she said. “But my main concern is, what about other women. How many other women could there be that came forward and the police refused to investigate. How many other women have they done this to?”jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

first_img(Barbara Suggashie, left, and her husband Clarence Suggashie hold the picture of their deceased daughter Kanina Sue Turtle who died by suicide Oct. 29, 2016. APTN file photo)Kenneth JacksonAPTN NewsWhen Barbara Suggashie first saw the video of her daughter’s suicide she only watched the first few minutes.Then she shut it off.She wanted to see if her daughter said goodbye.“But she never said anything,” said Suggashie.Kanina Sue Turtle was 15 when she died Oct. 29, 2016.That’s nearly 730 days ago and Suggashie, like any parent, has often wondered what her daughter was thinking at the time.Kanina did have something to say to her family.She wrote letters to them.But no one told the family.“No one said anything,” said Suggashie on the telephone over the weekend from her home in Poplar Hill near the Ontario and Manitoba border.Not the Ontario Provincial Police that investigated Kanina’s death in Sioux Lookout, Ont.Not Tikinagan Child and Family Services that owned and operated the foster home, and who took Kanina from her parents 10 times throughout her life for safety concerns.And not the Ontario coroner’s office.The family didn’t learn of Kanina’s last words until last month.That’s when a report, commissioned by Chief Coroner Dr. Dirk Huyer, was released on the deaths of 12 kids in child protective services between 2014 and 2017.It’s 86 pages looking at systemic issues that are failing the most vulnerable children in the province. Each of the 12 children had about one page each dedicated to them.In Kanina’s section there is a line that Suggashie hasn’t been able to forget: “Suicide notes were left for various family members…”It came as a shock.Why hadn’t anyone told her?Kanina, left, with her mother, Barbara, several months before her death. Facebook photo.But then again Suggashie was used to things being kept from her after her daughter’s death.For instance, the actual video of Kanina’s suicide was kept from the family for about nine months.During that time Suggashie didn’t believe it was suicide.Then police returned Kanina’s iPod in the summer of 2017 right around the same time the family’s access to information request for Kanina’s police report, and officer’s notes, arrived.Kanina filmed her death on the device and police officer notes mention the video. It’s about an hour and has been reviewed by APTN, as previously reported.The video shows Kanina was left alone for 45 minutes before the a worker in the home checked on her.It was far too late by then as she had been motionless for approximately 40 minutes.Suggashie said she has asked Tikinagan why her daughter was left alone when the agency knew she was suicidal and had been in the hospital multiple times in the days before her death for self-harming.When the investigating coroner did the autopsy hundreds of new cuts were all over her body.“I don’t understand Tikinagan. They are hiding something,” she has said over and over since APTN first broke the news of the video Feb. 28.She also never had the coroner’s death investigation report until late this summer when the family hired a lawyer to find out what happened. The lawyer, Cara Valiquette based in Bracebridge, Ont., was able to get some of Kanina’s records, including her counsellor notes.Those records show Kanina missed every appointment with her counsellor in the five days before her death. Her counsellor, Violet Tuesday in Sioux Lookout, also noted she had difficulty reaching Tikinagan during those five days.In depth: Love and death in child welfare: Kanina Sue Turtle’s last daysThe death investigation report was completed by regional coroner, Michael Wilson, over a year after Kanina’s death because no one had had done it by then, as Wilson mentions. Wilson also says in the report it does not appear anything could have stopped Kanina from killing herself.Wilson was also involved much earlier in the investigation into Kanina’s death. Immediately after her death, the OPP asked the coroner’s office to pay for specialized software that would allow the police to remove the video from Kanina’s iPod and keep as evidence, as the device had timed out and locked police out.Wilson wouldn’t pay the costs and said the family could if they wanted the device back. Kanina’s family would guess her password to get into the phone after police returned it.APTN contacted Huyer by email Monday asking who has Kanina’s suicide letters.“I am away from the office for two days so I am not able to answer until later this week as I have to check with others,” wrote Huyer Monday night. “I would be happy to respond to the family with any questions they have.”Huyer was in Sioux Lookout for a media conference over the cold case involving Audrey Anderson. That’s also where Tikinagan’s headquarters is located.He emailed again Tuesday evening saying he has made several inquires to find out about the letters.“You and the family have raised a question to me which I will make best efforts to find the answers in as timely a manner that I can,” he said. “As you are aware I do not have direct knowledge of all investigations (17,000) in the province each year.  I was not the investigating coroner in this case.”Tikinagan declined to comment when asked why the letters have been kept from the family or when they will be delivered.“Tikinagan will not be commenting on any matter relating to Kanina Turtle, as there is litigation before the Courts,” said Tikinagan’s lawyer, Catherine Beamish.Kanina’s family sued Tikinagan for $5.9 million over her death last month.After learning of the letters Suggashie and her husband, Clarence Suggashie, said they asked Tikinagan for the letters but never got a response.“They didn’t say anything,” said Clarence.He said he now goes to the Northern Store asking if they have mail hoping the letters are there.They are hoping it’s just a mistake someone will correct.“Every day we check the mail,” said Clarence. “Nothing.”kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more

first_imgCrown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett (APTN file photo.)Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsIt’s nearly official.Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett announced Thursday an “agreement-in-principle” had been reached with former Indian day school students.“Today marks the historic step in that journey towards reconciliation and healing,” Bennett told a news conference flanked by former students.One of those students was Gary McLean of Lake Manitoba First Nation, who filed the class-action lawsuit on behalf of an estimated 200,000 survivors.“We know it’s a new beginning,” McLean told reporters.“For me, without forgiveness, we know things stay the same.”Bennett said the final details still had to be worked out and approved by a court.But she said Canada acknowledged the harms caused by the system that established and guided the schools.“As a result of the harmful and discriminatory government policies at the time, students who attended these schools were subject to sexual, physical and psychological abuse, and forced to abandon their language and culture,” the minister said.Compensation will address individual trauma and future healing, Bennett added.Students in front of Trout Lake Indian Day School in Ontario.Day school students were forced to attend the federally operated schools during the day but could return home at night – a system that began in the 1920s.The suit applies to First Nation, Inuit and Métis students.McLean filed his suit against Canada in 2009.“Thank you for supporting us to get this far,” he said of his legal team, his family and other supporters.Bennett said her government was investing $200 million to support healing, wellness, education language, culture and commemoration “for all those affected by Indian day schools.”kmartens@aptn.ca@katmartelast_img read more

first_imgNation to NationA series of announcements in the last few weeks, and several more expected any day, suggest the Trudeau government is rolling out its Indigenous rights framework by piecemeal opposed to the failed plan of one large piece of legislation.Those pieces appear to include the recently revamped K-12 education funding formula for First Nations across Canada. It is set to improve funding for First Nations as of April but also open the door to a self-government type of system for a single nation, or group, to negotiate with the federal government.The same concept is expected with Indigenous child welfare legislation, to be tabled in the House of Commons any day. There’s an opt-in clause expected in that legislation, meaning nations can do nothing, and remain status quo, or decide to negotiate a deeper deal with Ottawa to control the welfare of their children.That’s all similar to the idea of the Indigenous rights framework that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced last Feb. 14 in the House of Commons.The Trudeau government gave itself a deadline of last December to table a large bill that would likely to encompass all these new agreements in the hopes of doing away with the Indian Act.But it was going to provide First Nations with a clause to opt-out of the Indian Act. No nation was going to be forced out from under it. But if they opted out then they could negotiate what it actually meant regarding, such things as, title and taxation.Faced with still opposition, by many First Nations and regional governments, the Liberals backed away from tabling the bill.The idea was for Canada to “renew its relationship with Indigenous peoples, one based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnership.”That’s not from Trudeau speech, even though it sounds awfully similar, rather it comes from a Jan. 16 press release issued by Crown-Indigenous Relations marking the signing of a “protocol for consultation and accommodation” with the Huron-Wendat Nation.Similar language was used in an announcement involving the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne on Jan. 23 to solve issues of around border crossings. There’s another on Jan. 15 with the Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island and working towards a “Tripartite Framework Agreement” to recognize and implement the rights of the Mi’kmaq.“What we heard resoundingly from First Nations, Inuit and Metis is take the time to do it right and listen to us which is an obvious approach but novel for governments,” said MP Marc Miller, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, on Nation to Nation Thursday.But Conservative MP Cathy McLeod said it can only been seen as a failure, or an over-promise, under-deliver situation by Trudeau.“The Prime Minister has failed in terms of standing up in the House a little over a year ago making a big commitment and not getting it done,” said McLeod, who is the Conservatives critic on Indigenous affairs.But what those that were against this approach in the first place?“It just shows that this government is not following through on its promise to have respectful dialogue,” said NDP MP Rachel Blaney.N2N@aptn.calast_img read more

first_imgOne-fifth (20%) of respondents would increase the amount they contribute to their pensions beyond the minimum auto-enrolment contribution rate, according to research by Aegon.Its research, which is based on a sample size of 4,000 respondents, found that just 6% consider the 2018 default contribution rate of 5% to be unaffordable.Nearly a third (29%) of respondents say they are willing to make savings contributions at the new rate.Staff and employers must each contribute a minimum of 1% under the pensions auto-enrolment scheme from the employer’s staging date to 30 September 2017. For the period between 1 October 2017 and 30 September 2018, an employee’s minimum contribution rises to 3% and an employer’s to 2%. From 1 October 2018, the minimum contribution level for staff and employers will increase to 5% and 3%, respectively.Angela Seymour Jackson (pictured), managing director workplace pensions at Aegon, said: “Auto-enrolment has not only helped employees get on the first rung of the pensions ladder by saving for the first time, but switched them on to a long-term savings habit.“Incredibly, we’re nearly three years in, with the first tranche of workers about to be re-enrolled and, before we know it, this will be followed by an increase in contributions.“For the majority of employees (79%), their workplace pension is their main method of saving for retirement and the good news is they value these pensions.

COPY LINKAD Loading … The Israeli-led demolition took place a month after the Supreme Court of Israel ruled in favour of the military in a dispute which involved violation of a construction ban. The seven-year legal fight ended in June and the residents of the community were given a deadline for eviction on July 18, Friday.The ruling was contested by Palestinians who said that the act will propel demolitions in other towns along the separation wall which runs for hundreds of kilometres. Residents also claimed that the ruling was flawed. “I built this house stone by stone. It was my dream to live in this house. Now I am losing everything,” resident Fadi al-Wahash told Reuters.Israeli Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said that the residents were “making their own law” despite orders from the military commander by building “illegal structures.””To my regret, there is no sufficient governance there. But it is not just that there are hundreds of structures there — several dozens of them sit almost on the route of the separation fence, endangering the security forces that operate there,” Erdan told Israel’s Army Radio.However, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said that demolitions were forced displacements and that Palestinians would complain to the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding the matter.”The cabinet condemns this grave aggression. This is a continuation of the forced displacement of the people of Jerusalem from their homes and lands — a war crime and a crime against humanity,” Shtayyeh said.Palestinian authorities have said that the buildings in Wadi al-Hummus region come under the Palestinian Authority and civilian control under the 1993 Oslo Accords.The Palestine Liberation Organization issued a statement before the Israeli judgement in June that accused the Israeli government “to set a precedent to enable the Israeli occupying forces to demolish numerous Palestinian buildings located in close proximity” to the separation wall.International protestsThe United Nations humanitarian coordinator, Jamie McGoldrick, and other UN officials tried calling Israeli authorities last week to halt the plans to conduct demolition in the region.European Union also issued a statement on the issue and said: “The continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for lasting peace.”While Palestinians have claimed that the move is a state-sponsored effort to grab its territory, Israel court claimed that the buildings could provide cover for Palestinian suicide bombers and attackers due to its proximity with the West Bank barrier.The Israeli West Bank barrier, projected to be 720km long when complete, is said to be a security barrier against terrorism. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said that the contentious barrier on the occupied territory was “contrary to international law”, according to an advisory issued in 2004. The Complicated History of Palestine and Israel Close Israeli machinery demolished Palestinian houses in the village of Sur Baher on July 22.ReutersHundreds of Israeli troops began demolishing Palestinian homes near the Israeli West Bank barrier on Monday July 22, drawing criticism and protests from international communities. The demolishing took place in Sur Baher, a Palestinian village in the disputed Wadi al-Hummus region close to the Israeli West Bank barrier. Israel officials have considered the settlements as a threat to regional security.The surrounding village residents of Wadi al-Hummus told local media that 16 residential buildings, including 100 apartments were bulldozed on Monday morning.”They have been evacuating people from their homes by force and they have started planting explosives in the homes they want to destroy,” Hamada Hamada, a community leader, told Reuters.last_img read more

His comment has only exposed what the government is planning.”Fakhrul came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after visiting the residence of noted writer and novelist Shawkat Ali, who passed away on Thursday, at Tikatuli in the city.Earlier in the day, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said law enforcement agencies will take stern actions if any one tries to create chaos centring the verdict of the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case.The home minister came up with the remarks replying to a question at a function organised on the occasion of the Metropolitan Family Day in the Dhakeshwari National Temple in Old Dhakaon Friday.The verdict of Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman is scheduled to be delivered on 8 February.Fakhrul alleged that the Zia Orphanage Trust case trial has been completed hurriedly as the government is determined to hold the next polls keeping BNP chief Khaleda Zia out of it.”Our leader’s lawyer has repeatedly been saying that justice hurried is justice buried but the government is not paying heed to it,” he added.The BNP leader alleged that the ruling party men are issuing threats to BNP though it has not yet announced any political programme.Fakhrul said even the prime minister and some ministers are making comments on the ongoing trial of the case.The BNP leader said the remarks of the ruling party men and its alliance leaders have demonstrated that they know about the verdict and they are prepared for everything.last_img read more

I am obsessed with this comic book, I’ve read them all. I love Kamala Khan. https://t.co/f3PevhfUzv— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) May 16, 2018Kumail Nanjiani did not respond, but plenty of others did. Like The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil. She’d be great for the movie too So when do @MarvelStudios want me @mindykaling @kumailn to get started on the MsMarvel screenplay ?— Riz Ahmed (@rizmc) May 16, 2018I mean… I don’t work for Marvel Studios, but my answer would be “right freaking now, please.” The other people he mentioned are totally on board too. Mindy Kaling responded, P.S. if we bamboozled then into commissioning us we would just hand the pen over to @GWillowWilson on the sly OBVIOUSLY, let her and @MiniB622 call all the shots https://t.co/tVaKeJeC7i— Riz Ahmed (@rizmc) May 16, 2018Either way, let’s hope they do bamboozle Disney into hiring at least Ahmed and Kaling to write the movie. They’re fantastic, funny writers who would be perfect for this character. And they’re already really excited about the idea. It’s amazing the kind of response you get when you announce the first South Asian American superhero movie, isn’t it Marvel?Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright (Photo via Marvel)Also in the Marvel Universe, Black Panther is out on Blu-Ray and DVD, which means fans can learn a lot more about how the movie was made now. Easily Marvel’s best movie in a long time, Black Panther was remarkable for the sheer amount of talent both in front of and behind the camera. One of the people behind the camera: Donald Glover. He’s already in the MCU elsewhere, thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming, so he couldn’t show up in Wakanda, but he did lend his writing talents to Black Panther.Glover and his brother/frequent writing partner Stephen were involved in the scene where T’Challa ascended to the throne and had to take on challengers. In the director’s commentary for the movie (per Hypebeast), Ryan Coogler confirms they worked on that scene, and were behind Suri’s perfect response to the ceremony. “This corset is really uncomfortable so could we all just wrap it up and go home?!” As great a comedy writer as Glover is, we knew he had to be responsible for some of the jokes in the movie.Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok (via Marvel)The cast of Black Panther is definitely sticking around the MCU after Avengers 4, and we’re pretty sure the original Avengers aren’t. But that might not be the case anymore. Chris Hemsworth put out a video on Instagram thanking fans for Avengers: Infinity War’s huge success. “The film continues to smash records left right and center and, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s all thanks to you guys,” he says. It’s a sweet way to thank fans for being as obsessed with these characters as we are. He went on, though.“We’re going to keep trying to crank them out for you, if you let us,” he said. It’s not news that Marvel intends to keep cranking them out as long as we keep buying tickets. But he said “we.” Not “they.” Implying that he’s still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He might not be done after Avengers 4. The original cast’s contracts are all expiring after that movie, and many of them are moving on. Scarlett Johansson is sticking around for a Black Widow solo flick, but her involvement beyond that is unknown, and she seems to be an outlier. Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have both expressed a desire to go out on a high note and pursue other projects, so the fact that Hemsworth is talking like he’s making more Marvel movies is unusual. Marvel is planning to do Miss Marvel after Captain Marvel y’all Muslims. Prepare to finally be represented. pic.twitter.com/SKFofLDmBt— R O D Y IW SPOILERS (@StaarksHeart) May 12, 2018“We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel to the world,” he said. That’s exciting, and while he doesn’t specify if those plans are for a movie or TV show, there’s reason to believe they’d keep Ms. Marvel in the movies. In the comics, her early journey has her directly involved with Captain Marvel. Before the events of Civil War II, she works with Carol Danvers a lot. (Less so now, but that’s a story for a later date as far as the movies are concerned.) If they want to do Ms. Marvel right, she needs to start out as a protege of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. And Brie Larson isn’t appearing in any TV show.And just from that one announcement, people are excited. Talented writers are already throwing their hats in, telling Marvel how much they want to write this movie. It started with Riz Ahmed, who basically pitched a dream team of writers for the Ms. Marvel movie. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. This isn’t the first time it’s sounded like he might keep doing Thor either. Thor: Ragnarok took the character in a completely new, fun direction. What was meant to be his last solo movie turned into a jumping off point for a whole new version of Thor. After that movie was over, both Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi spoke about ideas they had for where to take Thor in the future. It sounded like they were both seriously considering making more movies together. After Thor and Thor: The Dark World, I thought the last thing I’d want after Infinity War was more Thor movies. But Ragnarok made the character fun. I want to see more of that Thor. Especially with Waititi behind him.Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Via Marvel)Finally, on the smaller side of the MCU, it’s that time of year where we find out what’s coming back to television next fall and what’s not. It won’t surprise anyone that Inhumans was cancelled. God, what a weird mess that thing turned into. I just hope Marvel can still find a place in the MCU for Lockjaw. He deserved better. The bigger question would be what would happen to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There have been rumors about ABC wanting to cancel it, but Disney and Marvel like keeping it around. Plus, the last two seasons have been really good. Well, the good news is it’s coming back. The bad news is, not for a while.Though characters from the movies don’t typically cross over to the TV shows (Nick Fury appeared twice in the first season and never again), no other Marvel show reacts to the movies like Agents does. Captain America: The Winter Soldier gave the series its first great villain in Hydra. Doctor Strange allowed it to explore the supernatural. The last episodes of this season even start to reference Infinity War. For example in one scene, Daisy mentions some weird stuff happening in New York. So naturally, if Season Six premiered in the fall, it would have to address Thanos wiping out half the population. Some cast members couldn’t be in the show. And unlike the Netflix shows, Agents has already interacted with the movies enough that they can’t just ignore it.The solution: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Six won’t premiere until summer of 2019. A month or so after Avengers 4 comes out. That way the entire cast can come back and be in the show, and all they need to do is mention what happened in the time between seasons. Completely avoiding the issue like this isn’t the most satisfying solution, but it works best for a TV show. This way, it doesn’t get back into the position of chasing the movies. The show was at its worst when it was doing that. Still, I hope they at least show us a little of what happened during Thanos’ reign. Who disappeared? What did the rest of the agents do? We might find out, but not until over a year from now. I may have fainted. https://t.co/OJd8MuOt4R— G. (@GWillowWilson) May 16, 2018Once this happened, Ahmed said she would have to be involved. Wilson has done such amazing things with this character, she’d almost have to be a part of the movie. We’d hope. I can also do weekends! — Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) May 16, 2018And you know who’s especially on board with this idea. Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson. After the end credits of Avengers: Infinity War, there was one moment that made everyone in the theater gasp. OK, maybe two. First, there was seeing that Thanos’ snap had affected even Nick Fury and Maria Hill. But what really got everyone excited was the logo that showed up right before the movie cut to black. The part that let everyone know Captain Marvel is coming. Now, Captain Marvel the movie will be out next February, and we’re really excited for it. But just as exciting is the other character Captain Marvel paves the way for. If Captain Marvel exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ms. Marvel can’t be too far behind.If you’ve been keeping up with Marvel Comics, you’ve seen Ms. Marvel around. She’s honestly one of the best superheroes the comics have going right now. If you don’t know, the comics star Kamala Khan, a Muslim teenager who lives in Jersey City. She has the power to grow her body to any size, making her a surprisingly formidable hero. Her stories are sometimes funny, always action-packed and often affectingly real. It’s no surprise that the presence of Captain Marvel in the MCU is making fans wonder when Ms. Marvel will arrive. Well, we don’t know the answer to that, but the demand for Ms. Marvel is not news to Kevin Feige. He confirmed in a recent interview with the BBC that the studio does indeed have plans for the character.last_img read more

According ot Paul, James and his team would decide when he is ready to return to action, not the Lakers.Colin thinks there is real tension between the Lakers, James and his team because LeBron has suffered the first real injury of his career, and it probably won’t be the last as he plays into his mid-thirties.
