Eden Hazard and Marko Marin scored on their debuts for Chelsea, whose pre-season trip to the United States got off to an action-packed start.Belgian winger Hazard scored one of three goals in the opening 13 minutes in Seattle, where Romelu Lukaku netted twice.The Blues took an early lead when striker Lukaku finished well after being set up by Josh McEachran.Hazard then tricked his way down the left and scored with the help of a deflection, before a mistake by McEachran enabled the Sounders to pull one back.The young midfielder’s wayward pass went straight to Fredy Montero, who fired past goalkeeper Hilario.And Montero struck again on 33 minutes when he collected Mauro Rosales’ ball forward and slotted home.But Chelsea hit back through Marin, who cut inside after receiving McEachran’s pass and saw his deflected shot deceive keeper Bryan Meredith.Marin then turned provider, playing in Lukaku who rounded Meredith and steered the ball into an unguarded net.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

QUEBEC – Quebec’s legislature passed a motion Wednesday against Transport Canada’s directive allowing airline passengers to carry small blades, including kirpans.The motion tabled by the Coalition for Quebec’s Future will be sent to federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Garneau told reporters that members of Quebec’s national assembly might be misinformed.He said experts agree small knives, including kirpans — a religious and ceremonial dagger carried by some Sikh men — don’t represent any danger on airplanes.“Unfortunately, maybe the members of the (Quebec legislature) don’t have access to all the information,” Garneau said. “We are very satisfied that it’s very safe.”Transport Canada recently announced that knife blades up to six centimetres long will be allowed on domestic and most international flights, beginning Nov. 27.Quebec Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux said his government, in voting for the motion, was not motivated by religious discrimination but rather by concerns about security.“It’s got absolutely nothing to do with any religious belief,” he said. “It’s a legitimate question about security on our planes.“I think there are legitimate questions to be asked, so this is an opportunity for the federal government to explain better why it made this decision.”The World Sikh Organization had been lobbying for the change and welcomed Transport Canada’s announcement.Kirpans are controversial in Quebec, particularly since a 2001 incident when a school board demanded a young Sikh boy not bring his ceremonial dagger to school.The case made its way to the Supreme Court, with the court ruling unanimously in 2006 the board was wrong to deny the student his right to carry the knife.Amir Khadir, one of three members of Quebec solidaire who abstained on the motion, said the legislature was using members of the Sikh community as scapegoats because some of them carry the kirpan.Blades of any length will continue to be banned on flights to the United States, while razor blades and box cutters of any size will remain prohibited on all flights.
APTN National NewsGrassy Narrows First Nation saw their 2011 court victory over the Ontario government overturned Monday by the court of appeal.The case involved whether Canada or Ontario has the jurisdiction to issue logging permits on the Grassy Narrows territory.For years the First Nation has been battling the province to stop logging and mining companies from trespassing in its treaty area.Monday, the court of appeal said the Ontario government has the jurisdiction over logging in the province, including issuing logging permits after all.“The two-step process is unnecessary to protect the Aboriginal treaty harvesting right because when the Crown, through Ontario, takes up land, it must respect the treaty right,” the court said in its ruling. “It is difficult to see how the process of consultation, which is required when the treaty harvesting right is affected by taking up, would be improved by involving both levels of government.”It’s not clear on what the wider implications of this decision will be in the area or across the country.The leadership in Grassy Narrows has the ability to appeal this decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.Tune into APTN National News tonight to hear from Robert Janes, a lawyer representing Grassy Narrows.
England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the hero in their penalty shootout win over Colombia to book the side’s place in the quarter-finals and now the “secret” of how he managed it has been exposedFollowing Jordan Henderson’s miss earlier on, Colombia’s Mateus Uribe then failed to capitalise on their advantage by hitting the crossbar before the ball bounced back out.Shortly afterwards came Pickford’s moment when he superbly denied Carlos Bacca from scoring an important penalty-kick for Colombia with Eric Dier then stepping up to slot home the winning spot-kick and a place in the last-eight for England.While it was the Tottenham midfielder who scored the winning goal, Pickford was hailed as the hero with many claiming that it was his save from Bacca that decided the game.But now it has emerged that there may have been a method behind the 24-year-old’s critical save.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.In a picture, released by the British media outlet The Sun, Pickford appeared to have had notes around the neck of his water bottle during the penalty shootout and it’s now since been claimed that it contained notes on how to stop the Colombians spot-kicks.Was Jordan Pickford’s hidden water bottle the reason for #ENG‘s penalty success? https://t.co/G6XQRraMr4 pic.twitter.com/WzUViQCGd6— Sun Sport (@SunSport) July 5, 2018
