The Forest Training Institute (FTI), located in Tubmanburg, Bomi County is reportedly straddling (on both sides of) the line between the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), a component of the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), and the Ministry of Education (MOE), making it difficult for the entity’s true identity, allegiances and affiliations to emerge. According to the National Consultant of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) Project in Liberia, Dr. Wollor Topor, “At one point the FTI would run to the MOE when the going gets rough; and at other times, it would claim to be under the umbrella of the FDA.” Dr. Topor argued that a clear definition and direction was needed for the institute, during his presentation on “Strategic Documentation on Forest Education and Financial Options” last Wednesday at the FDA Compound in Whenin Town, outside Monrovia. The report on the way forward and transformation of the FTI was featured during the ITTO Project Validation workshop. Other topics discussed were legality framework strategy; administration and financial strategy; teaching approach; and strategy regarding forest and environmental organization.Dr. Topor also underscored the importance of the FTI in the production of middle level forest managers and called on the FDA management to pay special attention to the FTI in terms of instructional staff, among other things.Earlier in his opening statement, FDA Managing Director, Harrison S. Karnwea Sr., appealed for international assistance toward the sustainability of the ITTO as it strives to upgrade the status of the FTI.Mr. Karnwea thanked FDA partners including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), UK-Aid and European Union (EU) for revamping the war-ravished central offices which he said has restored the lost image of the entity.For his part, FTI Executive Director, Jeremiah F. Karmo, recounted the relevance of the institute and prayed for more support to take it to the next level.The objective of the one day validation, according to Mr. Karmo, was to among other things establish a small-scale forest-based industry to specifically create business for forest-based products and to mobilize forest resources small nature-based enterprise, as well. Participants were drawn from various sectors including FDA senior staff, representatives from the academia, the FTI Board, and donor partners.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

TORONTO — The federal government says Ontario is being “alarmist” in its fight against Ottawa’s carbon pricing law.It says there is no merit to the province’s claim that Ottawa will gain vast new powers.A provincial lawyer on Monday told Ontario’s top court the law is unconstitutional because it strays far into provincial powers.He said the federal government could be able to tell people when to drive or where to live if the law stands.Today, a lawyer for the federal government disputed that notion.She says Ottawa’s only aim is to curb dangerous climate-changing emissions, which do not respect provincial boundaries.In her submissions to the Ontario Court of Appeal, Sharlene Telles-Langdon stressed the urgency in reducing greenhouse gas emissions to stop global warming scientists say will be catastrophic. The provinces, she said, simply can’t do it on their own.“There is a gap in Canada’s ability as a nation to meet the challenge as it now faces,” Telles-Langdon told the five-justice panel. “The federal power is directed toward a national measure, one that cannot be adopted by the provinces. This act is on the right side of that line.”At issue is the validity of federal legislation that kicked in on April 1 and which imposes a charge on gasoline and other fossil fuels as well as on industrial polluters. The law applies in those provinces that have no carbon-pricing regime of their own that meets national standards.Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government under Premier Doug Ford has denounced the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act as an illegal tax grab that will force up the price of gasoline and heating fuel.Telles-Langdon, however, argued the act respects provincial jurisdiction and recognizes the validity of provincial systems in relation to local industry regulation.“It’s the same throughout Canada,” Telles-Langdon said. “What it does is ensure a national system.” The Canadian Press
