Media to be barred from Trump election nomination

Published

on

The US Republican Party’s vote to nominate its presidential candidate this month will be held in private, without press in attendance.

A Republican National Convention spokeswoman gave coronavirus health guidelines as the reason, the Associated Press reports.

Delegates are due to gather in North Carolina to formally renominate President Donald Trump.

The 336 delegates will meet on 24 August in the city of Charlotte.

They will cast proxy votes for some 2,500 official delegates. Mr Trump is the party’s sole remaining nominee, and his renomination will officially launch his re-election bid.

The party was “working within the parameters set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who can attend events”, the spokeswoman said.

The decision marks a significant change for the convention, which historically has worked to draw media attention to spread party messaging to the public.

Mr Trump had switched the location of the convention to Jacksonville, Florida, after the Democratic governor of North Carolina insisted in May on limiting the crowd size at the convention, on the grounds of social distancing.

But Mr Trump later scrapped the Florida convention, blaming the state’s coronavirus “flare-up”.

VIDEO: Greater Victoria police officers try bhangra dancing with social media star – Victoria News

Published

on


Greater Victoria police officers came together to learn bhangra from a social media sensation on Friday.

Officers from Saanich, Central Saanich, Victoria and Oak Bay police departments along with West Shore and North Cowichan RCMP danced bhangra with Gurdeep Pandher on the front lawn of the B.C. legislature.

“Sharing joy [and] celebrating the love that comes with everyone dancing together,” said VicPD Chief Del Manak in a Tweet. “Turns out there’s even more talent in the Department that I knew!”

Pandher, from the Yukon, moved to Canada from India’s Punjab region more than 10 years ago. His videos of bhangra dancing in scenic locations around Canada has earned him a social media following of more than 300,000 people.

Phander announced on Twitter Aug. 7 that he was coming to Vancouver Island for a 10-day visit.

During his time on the Island, the social media star has shared his spirited dance moves from Salt Spring Island, Nanaimo, Ucluelet and Victoria’s Government Street. Sandher has even danced with a surf board in one arm and two feet in the Pacific Ocean at Tofino’s Long Beach.
