Linkedin Just 33.49 per cent of the electorate turned out to vote on Saturday November 10 last with the referendum passed on a 58 per cent to 41 per cent majority. It is claimed by the petitioners that the Government used public money to sway the campaign and therefore it had a material effect on the outcome.Ms Kennelly claims that in voting yes through the postal voting facility, her vote was swayed in light of the subsequent Supreme Court ruling that the Government referendum campaign material was not impartial and weighed towards the yes vote campaign.In an affidavit to the court, she said that her vote relied upon the information provided by the Government in influencing her to vote yes. Ms Kennelly later learned of the Supreme Court ruling but it was too late to change her vote and her affidavit claimed that she “trusted the Government to provide her with fair and impartial information.”Ms Kennelly voted two weeks before the public vote on November 10 and was “shocked and angered” at the outcome of the poll in light of the Supreme Court ruling prior to referendum day.Journalist and commentator John Waters is also supporting the petitioners and has submitted an affidavit to that effect.This week, the High Court ordered that the women were to receive a copy of the Supreme Court ruling and they are seeking leave to appeal that the onus should be on the State to prove that the breach had no material effect.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The first half of the weekend was a washout for much of the Northeast, thanks to heavy showers and thunderstorms that continued throughout the day.Many areas received 2 to 3 inches of rain, while Caldwell, New Jersey, received 4.92 inches and New York’s Central Park received 2.9 inches, a new record for the day. Flights at Newark Liberty International Airport were delayed, and one entrance of New York City’s Penn Station was closed due to floodwaters.The atmospheric setup remains similar on Sunday with a tenacious stationary front remaining in place in the Northeast. That means more showers and thunderstorms will develop on Sunday.However, the worst is over for the Northeast. Showers on Sunday should be less intense and less frequent than Saturday. Rainfall amounts through Monday evening will range between 1 and 2 inches for most spots, with upwards of 3 inches possible in New England.Fire weather in Northern PlainsAt least three new wildfires were sparked Saturday in Montana, thanks to gusty winds, low humidity and extensive heat, according to Great Falls ABC affiliate KRTV.Temperatures were so high in the region Saturday that numerous records were broken, including Glasgow, Montana (107 degrees); Helena, Montana (102 degrees); Pocatello, Idaho (100 degrees); and West Glacier, Montana (100 degrees), which reached triple digits for the first time in recorded history.A high centered over Minnesota will steer warm air from the south into the Upper Plains again on Sunday. High temperatures will reach into the 100s in some places, with the potential of new records being set.Very dry air over the West, coupled with a cold front in western Montana, will produce gusty winds and the formation of dry thunderstorms on Sunday. Lightning strikes from these dry storms can easily spark new wildfires, while the gusty winds can facilitate their rapid spread. Red flag warnings remain in effect for much of the region through Sunday night.Monsoons calm downMonsoon thunderstorms rolled through the Las Vegas area again Saturday night. Dust storms and flash flood warnings were both issued by the National Weather Service for the region. Winds — some that gusted to over 71 miles per hour — and rain were so severe that, at one point, 62,000 customers of NV Energy were without power.Drier air is expected to move in from the west on Sunday, which will decrease the probability of monsoon thunderstorms for the next few days.

Pratt says there were many bands in the competition at the start but the local support has been huge in helping Twin Peaks enter the national portion of the competition.“It feels really great and it’s obviously because everyone in the surrounding area has been voting for us so we’re really excited. We sent in out entry to CBC and then it basically it just comes down to social media and sharing as much as possible to get the votes in,” she explains. “I think there was about 4,500 bands to begin with and now we’re in the top 24 nationally.”The name of the song submitted by Twin Peaks is called “Rain on Me” and it’s a song that was written some time ago by Pratt in her early 20’s. She had the song sitting around and thought bandmate Naomi Shore added a great tough to the song.- Advertisement -“It’s about when people come into your lives really quickly and they leave really quickly and you long for them,” she says. “When I originally wrote it I just had the melody and lyrics in my head but I had friends from Fort St. John that flushed it out for me as far as instrumentation. When Naomi and I got together I had it laying around. I hadn’t done anything with it or recorded it previously. Naomi has a very soulful voice so we decided to use her for the lead vocals on the track.”As far as how Twin Peaks came to be Pratt says she knew Shore back from their days in school but it wasn’t until a trip to a concert that they discovered that they meshed well together.“We grew up together; we went to school together but we didn’t actually get to become friends until about three years ago. Naomi brought me along with her to a Tom Petty concert. We had a lot of sing-a-longs in the car,” she explains. “We realized we’re both independent musicians in Fort St. John. We both have pretty similar vocals and they sound really nice together. We played our cousins wedding and after that more people asked us to play different things around town.”Advertisement The duo have been on three tours together and have a fourth planned across the prairies in May which will showcase their new album.At stake in the contest is a chance to win $20,000 in Yamaha equipment, a recording with CBC Music, and a chance to perform on the same show as Spoon and Tegan and Sara at the CBC Music Festival in Vancouver.The current round of voting ends on April 28.

The governments of Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland are launching tourism investment opportunities on a scale unparalleled in Africa – in an area of immense potential underpinned by a wealth of natural and cultural resources, including a pristine coastline, classic African game parks, the southernmost coral reefs in Africa and rich indigenous cultures.KwaZulu-Natal Tourism AuthorityKwaZulu-Natal WildlifeLubombo Spatial Development InitiativeStraddling southern Mozambique, eastern Swaziland and northern KwaZulu-Natal, the Lubombo region has some of the most picturesque and unspoiled natural attractions in Africa. At the heart of the region nestles the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, one of South Africa’s seven Unesco World Heritage Sites.The Lubombo region is currently enjoying the biggest and most prolonged tourism boom in its history. The year 2005 marked the 17th successive year of increased foreign visitor arrivals in South Africa, with a record of over 7-million overseas tourists choosing to holiday in the country.The growth in international tourism comes on top of a large, established domestic tourism market currently worth twice as much as its foreign counterpart.Recognising the opportunities offered by this robust growth, a number of excellent tourism investment opportunities have been identified in each of the three countries. These range from beach resorts to boutique hotels and game lodges, and are designed to help establish the Lubombo region as global tourism destination.Until now, the region’s inaccessibility has inhibited development beyond some game reserves and a few lodges. A major new tourist road and secondary roads are being constructed as part of the Lubombo SDI.Some R630-million has been committed to regional support networks such as new roads and the upgrading of the major national access route, park infrastructure such as game fences, internal road networks and tourism facilities, the restocking of the park and various regional programmes that include major new malaria eradication drive.Brand South Africa reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
