Compelled testimony admissible: OSC

first_img Keywords EnforcementCompanies Ontario Securities Commission Mouth mechanic turned market manipulator James Langton A hearing on the motion was held behind closed doors back in September. And, around the same time, the commission settled with one of the most prominent respondents in the case, Goldcorp Inc. chairman, Ian Telfer. (See Investment Executive, Goldcorp chairman settles with OSC, September 20, 2013.) In October, the panel issued an oral ruling on the motion, indicating that excerpts from transcripts of compelled examinations are admissible into evidence in the context of regulatory proceedings. However, it agreed with the respondents in the case, who argued that the best evidence would be direct testimony at the hearing; so, it said that transcripts can be submitted at the end of the hearing for respondents that haven’t chosen to testify. On a cross-motion for confidentiality, the panel also found that all materials and transcripts should remain confidential, but that the panel’s decision should be public. In its reasons, the panel finds that the Securities Act permits OSC staff to produce compelled testimony at a hearing. “We agree that if the legislature had intended to prohibit the use of compelled testimony in section 127 proceedings it would have done so expressly,” it says, adding that the legislature’s silence on that issue “can be taken as deliberate”. “To find otherwise would also prohibit the use of documentary evidence compelled by staff pursuant to section 13 of the Act, which cannot have been the legislative intention given the context of the scheme of the Act in respect of investigations and enforcement,” it notes. It also says that transcripts of the compelled testimony are relevant hearsay and are therefore admissible under procedural rules. “The Act does not make the compelled testimony inadmissible in an administrative hearing and the Act does not expressly limit the extent to or purposes for which the compelled testimony may admitted or used in evidence at an administrative hearing under the Act,” it notes. “Further, we were not satisfied that the other statutes cited by the respondents make the compelled testimony inadmissible in an administrative hearing under the Act or expressly limit the extent to or purposes for which the compelled testimony may be admitted or used in evidence at an administrative hearing under the Act.” The panel acknowledges that it is “mindful of the dangers of hearsay evidence” and notes that the weight this evidence will receive in a hearing will be determined by the panel. In ruling that the testimony should not be entered into evidence until the conclusion of the case, the panel says, “This provides the respondents with an opportunity to consider the evidence tendered by staff before determining whether they will undertake to testify at the merits hearing while also attempting to avoid any unfairness that could result from staff splitting its case.” The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) today issued its reasons for a decision made earlier this year, where it ruled that compelled testimony and hearsay evidence is admissible in an enforcement hearing. The OSC published its reasons on a motion brought by OSC staff seeking an order to admit excerpts from transcripts of compelled examinations into evidence in its case alleging insider trading and tipping against various industry figures. The allegations have not been proven.

Our heroes were, indeed, people who stood up for noble ideals, fought against injustice; and through their numerous acts of courage helped to shape the history of our country and chart the course for a better Jamaica.Our cultural heritage, enshrined in the nation’s historic monuments, museums, and collections, as well as our traditions, oral history and the collective psyche of our people, provides us with the resources for the education of future generations of Jamaicans.As a people we must maintain our traditions – those “customs and practices” which make us who we are, and which help to identify us as Jamaicans wherever we go.Our natural environment is a critical aspect of our natural heritage that we should not ignore. We must maintain those environmental practices that will preserve the nation’s flora and fauna, and ensure sustained social and economic benefits for all citizens, at home and abroad.Despite the many challenges that we continue to face as a developing country, we cannot ignore the fact that for a small nation, given our population and size, we have made tremendous strides in many fields.As I travel around Jamaica, I continue to be inspired by the passion and pride that our people display in their communities. I am buoyed by the hopes and aspirations of our young people. I am heartened by the goodwill that our senior citizens demonstrate in their efforts to pass on their knowledge to the next generation. Yes, we face many challenges in our society; but, as the poet said, “.hope springs eternal.”The recipients of our National Honours and Awards reflect the dreams, aspirations, innovativeness, determination, resilience, talent, and the uncanny ability of Jamaicans to “tun wi han’ and mek fashion”.I call on all Jamaicans as we celebrate National Heroes Day, to pause and reflect on the strength of our heritage, recognizing that the past is the seed that brings forth the harvest of the future. In other words, our heritage is ours to build on, and if we understand our past, and learn from the experiences of our predecessors, then we can indeed, look to the future full of hope and confidence.last_img read more

How motivation helps in achieving goals: A Silicon Valley story

first_imgMotivation is the desire to achieve a goal or a certain level of performance. Environmental factors such as having the resources, information, and support one needs to perform well are critical to determining the performance. Let’s take the example of early-stage startups. The founder was working with a tech giant in silicon, and he had a great idea of starting lossless compression software and services. The CEO of the company offered millions to buy his plan, but he declined the offer. His co-workers, managers, and others suggested that he keep working on the idea, and he had all the necessary resources and environment. One of the company’s vice presidents joined him for management & consulting, and then he resigned to pursue his startup idea. The context here was his co-workers, office resources, and silicon valley culture to make this world a better place and that motivated him to pursue his vision.Motivation gives rise to thinking and cognition, and the mind starts to process the information in a precise fashion. The environment has a significant impact on how information is processed. Continuing the example from the previous part, the founder started searching for different products and services that he can offer to companies and the public. After processing all the feedbacks and surveys, he launched a 4K video streaming platform. The beta platform was a massive hit as it was providing a glitch-free video streaming experience. The environment here was rising fad towards high definition video streaming and algorithm implementation that worked with all limited resources to build a beta platform.The phase of judgment starts after proper motivation to achieve something, and successful information search and processing paves the way to resolution. A kind environment supports the process of understanding, whereas a hostile environment sometimes pushes a person or an organization back to information search and processing. In the case of this startup after the completion of beta testing they wanted to diversify and launch more products, many investors came forward to support and help them in launching new services, so this environment massively impacted their decision to launch a variety of products and services including cryptocurrency platform, online gaming services, etc.Decision making is a sort of actionable judgment. In the case of an organization, individuals work together to achieve favourable outcomes. The environment with recognition, empowerment, technical competence, employee participation, organizational commitment, and a sense of belonging always thrives with effective decision making. In the case of my example, the startup founder always focused on team effort to make decisions. After deliberating with all employees, he decided to start with the new internet and a storage device.The cycle of motivation to judgment ends at decision making and the consequence of all these sorts of determines behaviour. The environment in this behavioural sense is of two types kind and wicked. If a person gets treated equally and has a sense of doing something good for the organization or personal level, wickedness is just the opposite. In my example, one of the employees was doing well in the workplace and, in his life, came up with an idea of launching a smartphone and startup launched with the new internet.The environment has a significant impact on feedback. We can ask questions about feedback when we have a supportive and kind atmosphere, and feedback is necessary in either case, i.e., individual and organizational level. So taking the startup’s example, they received feedback from every employee and improved the quality of software and other services. The cardless and secure payment system was revamped after the input from the user group.Emotions are also useful for creative tasks because positive individuals tend to be more creative and open to new ideas. With a kind environment, we can have more people with positive emotions. The startup is revolutionizing the world, and the employees of the company and people have a positive feeling attached to this company, it’s the core idea, products, and services.last_img read more

Stress

first_imgStress undoubtedly diminishes the life expectancy; quit it.The inundated concern of today’s generation is stress. It is brewing in every one of us as blood is flowing in our veins. It is just making us mechanical and without emotions, decreasing our lifespan and escalating our ailments.  Every day commences with the stress of pondering what will happen next. Irrespective of age, everybody from a small kid to elderly older adults is experiencing this concern. The competitions have soared to the level that students find it easy to quit their lives by committing suicide than facing the situation. If we win, we get feted if we lose, we get rebuffed. It is as though our value is to be the toppers, or we are doomed.All these problems have surfaced because of our beliefs. Our thought process has been wholly polluted with an incorrect perception of success. We have been hacked with the virus called wealth, which we think is accountable for our happiness. And to achieve that, we are forcing bees and beetles to become butterflies. Is it feasible? We are pushing our kids into the field, which they cannot surpass. We are curtailing their progress. We are imbibing in them the wrong concept of accomplishment and bogus contentment. No. Please let each one of them bloom in the way they can sparkle the most. We need to have a clear mindset that each one of us has a particular fortune. We will achieve that which is destined for us. Education is essential, but each one has his taste and choice. Let us not act gods for our kids and decide their future and force them into it without their concern. Let them appreciate and outshine in the field they like. If we move them, they will become disasters due to this fiasco, jealousy, anger, and stress brews.Life is distinctly short but delightful for an assigned period, so we need to value it. Bliss comes from gratification, not from income. Appreciation, satisfaction, and cheerfulness drive stress and anxiety far away. There is no full stop for our longings. Every day our heart craves for new things. If we cannot fix our limits, we will lead a pathetic life. If we are born in this world, we all have an objective. We need to investigate that rationale and achieve it.The biggest stress buster is a smile. Smile even at a stranger.  It is contiguous.  It spreads from one person to another. Life becomes easy if we love others and wish good for everyone.The biggest evil that haunts us in this race of life is what others think of us. What they believe is their problem. Why do we need to worry about it? We are what we are. Let us lead our lives happily.  To conduct an ecstatic experience, we need to be judging ourselves than being judgemental about others. Let us live a life to voice ourselves, not to impress others. It is tough to amaze people, but it gives greater pleasure to impress ourselves by doing the things we love to do.People in ancient days had prominent joint families. They had less to eat, fewer luxuries, yet they were pleased. It is just because they appraised and admired each other. They believed in sharing whatever they had. They believed in the policy of all in one and one in all. But we, despite being in nuclear families, are unhappy and are desperate.  Because we are not enjoying what we have, we run in a race to exhibit what we have. What disparity does it make to others knowing whatever we acquire? We possess it for our ease. Why not stop this show-off business. Let us grow by elevating each other and not by snubbing.Probably by following these simple rules, we can diminish the amount of stress developing in us. One beautiful way which gives us enormous contentment is helping the people who are in need. It reduces a lot of tension and burden.An Additional incredible way to reduce stress is to meditate. Meditation makes us forget the world and allows us to become one with the Creator. Ever have you tried spending time with an infant baby? Their groaning, their smile, and their gestures are the best delight one can encounter.A deriving delight from small things can make our day productive. We need to remember that a minute passed, will never return. Let us love and spread peace, love, and tranquillity. Let us become the reason for a smile in somebody’s life. Let us forget stress because what is to happen will happen. If we can stop it, let us try. If we cannot, then we can do nothing about it. They why stress?last_img read more
