All adults should do a minimum of 150 minutes of vigorous physical activity per week, even more vital for well-being and mental health in the COVID-19 era, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday in its first guidance in a decade. It recommended that children and adolescents have an average of one hour of daily physical exercise and limit time in front of electronic screens. "Increasing physical activity not only helps prevent and manage heart disease, type-2 diabetes and cancer, it also reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety, reduces cognitive decline including Alzheimer's and improves memory," Ruediger Krech, WHO director for health promotion, told a news briefing.

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) is increasingly dismayed with the Ford government’s lack of targeted action to stop the surge of COVID-19 currently running rampant in Peel, and across Ontario. The OFL is once again calling for the immediate provision of paid sick days, pandemic pay premiums for all essential workers, guaranteed access to required PPE, targeted testing and the public disclosure of workplaces currently experiencing outbreaks. Since the onset of this pandemic, the OFL has called on the Ford government to take immediate action to stop the spread of COVID-19 across Ontario. Yet, the Ford government continually and routinely fails to act on those recommendations.“We have put forward a suite of recommendations, on numerous occasions, that the Ford government must implement to keep workers safe and stop the spread of COVID-19, and time and time again, they ignore our calls,” said OFL President Patty Coates. “Do we need to hire Doug Ford friendly Conservative lobbyists, like multi-national corporation Walmart did – to get this government’s attention?”Among the list of recommendations that labour advocates have called for is access to paid sick days, for every worker in Ontario. The OFL is calling on the Ford government to immediately reverse their callous decision to remove paid sick days from Ontario workers, a move they made almost immediately upon forming government.This week, the OFL joined with workers’ advocacy group, Warehouse Workers Centre (WWC), to echo those demands – calling for the following immediate actions: * Pandemic pay: The OFL and the WWC demand that all workers receive pandemic pay by immediately raising the minimum wage and making pay premiums permanent. * Health and safety in the workplace: The OFL and the WWC demand that all employers implement the necessary safety precautions to ensure that workers are safe from COVID-19. Employers must respond to the needs of workers, including access to PPE, physical distancing, staggered shift and break times. * Province-wide paid sick days: The OFL, the WWC and numerous worker advocates call on the Ontario government to legislate in the Employment Standards Act the provision of at least seven paid days of emergency leave on a permanent basis, and additional 14 days of paid emergency leave during public health emergencies. In addition, the paid emergency leave must be available to all workers regardless of employment status, immigration status, or workplace size, and the leave must cover personal sickness, injury, or emergency, as well as family emergencies and responsibilities. * Better access to COVID-19 testing: We need greater access to COVID-19 testing amongst essential workers in warehousing, logistics and e-commerce. Employers must provide paid leave to workers who require testing. * Disclose the names of workplaces experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks: Access to information is critical. Workers and the community at large deserve to know where active COVID-19 outbreaks are occurring in workplaces, in their communities. The Government must immediately instruct Public Health Ontario to release the names and locations of workplace outbreaks so workers, adjacent businesses that service those workplaces, and the public are informed and can take action to stay safe. On the issue of the disclosure of workplace outbreaks, recent data from Peel Region suggests that manufacturing and industrial facilities account for 34 per cent of workplace outbreaks, while retail and food processing make up 14 per cent and 10 per cent respectively.Even former Conservative leader and current Mayor of Brampton Patrick Brown agrees.Mayor Brown supports identifying the locations of workplace outbreaks, suggesting ‘transparency’ is critical to helping curb the spread. Further, Brown has also identified the need to provide workers with access to ‘better sick benefits,’ so they can stay home when they are sick – as another immediate and needed measure.It doesn’t stop there, Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health for the Region of Peel said at a recent news conference: “In protecting workers, we know that the absence of worker protections and paid sick leave does result in outbreaks because, people will show up because they’re choosing between their livelihood and their lives.”“The message to Ford is quite simple. We are done with the tough talk, the time for action is now,” said Coates. “With medical professionals and former Conservative leaders calling for transparency and paid sick days for workers in Ontario – why does Doug Ford still remain reticent to provide both? We can’t wait for the Premier to continue to ‘dance’ around the issue, we need action, now.”The Ontario Federation of Labour represents 54 unions and one million workers in Ontario.

In the third quarter of 2020, management services revenue was also generated by TerraShift, while the comparable quarter had nil revenue with the closure of Susan Lake operations. * For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, aggregates sales revenue was lower due to a decline in AMI’s corporate pit revenue, offset by increased networked 3rd party sales revenue from AMI RockChain. Management services revenue in the nine months ended September 20, 2020 increased versus the comparable period in 2019 due to sales from Coffey Lake in 2020 and the addition of TerraShift’s revenue stream. * Gross profit (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was a loss of $0.3 million and loss of $0.3 million, respectively, compared to a loss of $0.4 million and $0.9 million for the same periods in 2019. Included in the loss of $0.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was an inventory write-down of $0.3 million. The Corporation took the necessary actions to adjust costs structures where possible, and as a result, gross losses were significantly reduced in the three and nine month 2020 periods. It is anticipated that these adjustments to costs will benefit the Corporation on an ongoing basis. * The total loss (income) and comprehensive loss (income) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was a loss of $1.1 million and $2.6 million, respectively, compared to income of $0.8 million and a loss of $1.6 million for the corresponding periods in 2019. * Net working capital of $1.0 million as at September 30, 2020 (December 31, 2019: $2.8 million). On October 26, 2020, the Corporation completed a $1.48 million non-brokered private placement enhancing AMI’s net working capital. In management’s opinion the enhanced net working capital from the private placement positions AMI to fund ongoing operations. The Corporation used less cash in operations in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the equivalent periods in 2019. The write-down of inventory also decreased working capital as at September 30, 2020 compared to December 31, 2019.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DELTA 9 CANNABIS INC. (TSX: DN) (OTCQX: VRNDF) ("Delta 9" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has developed and validated new proprietary decontamination equipment, branded the “Decontamination Pod” (or “D-Pod”), which can be used to decontaminate medical supplies, personal protective equipment (“PPE”), and other equipment. Canadian and US patent applications have been filed on behalf of the Company for the D-Pod, which is a standard shipping container retrofitted to include heating and ultraviolet light technologies. When PPE or other materials are placed inside the treatment area of the D-Pod, the combination of heat and UVC is sufficient to kill the COVID-19 virus.“This technology could be a game changer for governments, hospitals, and care-facilities in the fight against COVID-19, allowing them to decontaminate large amounts of PPE and other equipment, increasing the availability of existing PPE inventories and preventing potential exposures to the virus,” said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9. “We are extremely proud of our employees and partners for bringing this technology to this point and look forward to continuing to do our part in providing solutions to this health crisis.”The Company, through a newly incorporated and partially owned subsidiary, Blue Horseshoe Manufacturing Inc., plans to manufacture and distribute the new technology across North America, providing a new tool for governments, health care facilities, long-term care facilities, businesses, and First Nations in their fight against COVID-19. The Company will leverage the success of its cannabis grow pod division which has produced and installed over 500 pods for in-house and third-party facilities since 2017 and use its existing cannabis grow pod manufacturing facilities in Winnipeg to manufacture the first D-Pods. Management believes that the Company will quickly be able to ramp up production capacity to 16 to 20 D-Pods per month, while working with other Canadian manufacturers to compliment its internal capacity. The D-Pods are expected to sell for approximately $250,000 per unit. The Company has already received inquiries from groups interested in deploying the technology and expects to begin taking orders in the coming week.The technology used in the D-Pods was originally developed in partnership between Delta 9, RSR Project Management Ltd., Northern Green Homes Inc., and Connco Electric and the finished D-Pod was tested and validated by an independent and accredited third party lab, BioScision Pharma Inc., which confirmed that the technology should be effective in decontaminating materials which may be contaminated with the COVID-19 virus.The D-Pod is the first innovation of Delta 9’s grow pod business unit which can be used as a tool in the fight against COVID-19. The Company is now developing additional technologies which can decontaminate equipment at low temperatures and modular storage and transport units which can be used to store and distribute vaccines while maintaining quality and stability.For more information contact:Investor & Media Contact: Ian Chadsey VP Corporate Affairs Mobile: 204-898-7722 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgSales Contacts: Kelsey Friesen Director of Pod Sales Mobile : 647-618-6561 E-mail : email@example.comRichard Park Sales Manager Mobile : 204-470-5242 E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.orgAbout Delta 9 Cannabis Inc.Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. is a vertically integrated cannabis company focused on bringing the highest quality cannabis products to market.
