He’ll also be assisted at the new academy by his backroom from the Donegal schoolboys side Mel O’Donnell and Andrew Wilson.McHugh is one of the best players to have ever come out of Donegal and the opportunity for young players to work with a player of his calibre on a weekly basis is fantastic.McHugh is urging parents to simply register their kids name and D.O.B. via email: [email protected], to ensure we get coaching asap on the 1st night.McHugh told Donegal Daily, “It’s something that has been in the pipeline for years now, and has taken us a lot of time to decide the correct coaching strategy that we will adopt” “We have broken down the ‘basics’ of the game and will work in blocks to allow the kids ample time to pick up these essential skills ”“Our aim is to coach good technical skills within an environment that encourages kids to express their own natural talent ”The DONEGAL SOCCER ACADEMY officially gets underway next Wednesday the 22nd of April.Details regarding the times, date, cost and venue of the academy are outlined on the poster above.

Trina RoacheAPTN National NewsFirst Nation leaders in New Brunswick say a former premier needs a lesson on treaties.Frank McKenna has been a vocal supporter of the Energy East Pipeline, a project to carry crude oil from Alberta to Eastern Canada. It could wind its way through traditional Maliseet and Mi’kmaq territories to an oil refinery in Saint John.McKenna was quoted in the Telegraph Journal this week touting the benefits of the pipeline coming east “…because we have fewer First Nation issues as a result of existing treaties whereas in the West, they don’t have treaties signed…and we have more Crown land that would be part of the right-of-way discussion.”As a former politician, diplomat and current deputy chair of the TD Bank, McKenna is a prominent figure.“While Mr. McKenna’s opinion is mistaken it is nevertheless influential,” said Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief Roger Augustine.The Peace and Friendship Treaties signed in the mid-1700s formalized a relationship between the Crown and the Mi’kmaq, Maliseet and Passamoquoddy. The treaties affirm Aboriginal rights and title, but never surrendered land.“With respect, Mr. McKenna has either been misinformed or has misspoken regarding our treaties and the current state of Aboriginal-Crown relations in New Brunswick,” said Augustine.In his view, the treaties don’t mean fewer roadblocks, but instead lead to the bigger question of how First Nations can get a “piece of the action.”And not just jobs, but royalties.Other Mi’kmaq and Maliseet leaders are more cautious but say that if the pipeline becomes reality, they need to be in a position to negotiate.“I have to be at the table. We have an obligation to be there,” said Candice Paul, chief of the St. Mary’s First Nation near Fredericton. “One of the elders told me that if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.”Paul said Aboriginal concerns over environmental impacts will have to be addressed.New Premier Brian Gallant promised a better approach to First Nations issues during his campaign.“After four years of deteriorating relations with the government of New Brunswick, Mr. Gallant’s remarks offered reason to be cautiously optimistic,” said Augustine.Gallant is all for the Energy East Pipeline calling it an economic boon that will create jobs. He flew to Alberta to show his support when TransCanada Corp filed the paperwork to kick start the regulatory process.But if government drops the ball on consultation again and Aboriginal concerns are ignored in favour of industry, a repeat of the shale gas protests may loom on the horizon. A lot of ifs which can be avoided said Paul.“I hope with this government now, that they saw and learned from that and that they sit down and meet with us, take our concerns and come up with an action plan of how we move forward,” said Paul.A meeting between the province and First Nation chiefs is tentatively set for next week. Broad discussion on how to move forward on Aboriginal issues is on the agenda, as well as for First Nations leaders to make sure government has a better grasp on the treaties than McKenna.“The former premier, McKenna, needs to go get educated on the Peace and Friendship Treaties that we do have in the province he was premier of and that we didn’t cede our land,” said Paul.McKenna declined to comment.
Charlotte Morritt-JacobsAPTN NewsSandra Noel finds herself sitting on her couch looking over old photographs more and more these days.Noel is a former ward of the state – taken from her parents in Inuvik and send south to Yellowknife.She couldn’t tell you how many social workers she had but she quickly shares how much she missed growing up in the high arctic community of Inuvik as a teenager.“Between moving around a lot it was confusing and scary,” she says. “It was hard having everything up in the air.”Now through records – she’s learning about her past.“I am anxious to get them and read them,” she said.Noel is collecting her social services records from the government of the Northwest Territories after spending a decade in foster care.She was adopted out at birth and her adoptive parents moved from Inuvik to Yellowknife. She was then put in a foster home at age 10.And she has questions.“The main questions were about my dad passing, my birth family,” she said. “My social workers were working on a family tree for me but I haven’t seen that in my records yet.”It’s been over a year now since she first started requesting her child welfare file.She finds it tedious and a long process.“Online it said I would have to pay to get my records. From there I went to social services to get my records. They referred me to someone else so I went there and saw someone I could talk to about it and the process of applying,” she said.The documents aren’t complete. Many have been redacted and some of the information hasn’t exactly enlightened her.“I guess in my mind I was expecting the deep dark stuff,” Noel said. “The first file I picked up was more of the social workers generic stuff, travel letters and what not.”Now Noel wants to put her strength and experience with the system to good use.She teamed up with a not for profit organization called Youth In Care Canada to help better advocate for better services.“Even if I help youth in care or from care that will be amazing and to help empower myself,” she said.Noel said it’s not easy being in care.“I know you feel unloved in care and voiceless,” she said. “I know I have so to know that there is people out there raising awareness who want to be an advocate, a voice for [email protected]@aptncharlotte
