ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – We’ll soon know exactly how many small-town Newfoundlanders have become instant millionaires with a history-making Lotto Max jackpot.The massive $60 million windfall is expected to inject big money into multiple rural Conception Bay-area communities about an hour’s drive from St. John’s.“If one person won it, it would be like ‘Oh, that’s too much money for one person,’” said John Smith, executive director of the Conception Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.“It’ll definitely spread the wealth out among a bunch of different communities, depending how they want to use it. It’s a huge, positive thing.”The Atlantic Lottery Corporation said Monday it will confirm within 24 hours just how many winners there are.Corporation spokeswoman Tracy Shute said the last members of the winning group were interviewed Monday as a security process wraps up. If all goes smoothly, an official announcement will likely happen later this week.“We’ll introduce the group and tell you some of their stories about the wonderful things they’re going to do with this money,” she said in an interview.Shute did not confirm the total number who will share the biggest jackpot yet in Atlantic Canada and one of the top five ever in Canada.She said the ticket for Friday night’s draw was bought somewhere on the Avalon Peninsula but would not reveal any other details.Social media is abuzz with reports the jackpot will be shared by about 30 construction workers who live in small towns that have felt the brunt of recent economic swings. Newfoundland and Labrador was hit particularly hard when the oil price crash starting in 2014 drained crucial revenues from the provincial treasury.Several major construction projects started winding down around the same time, including components of the Hebron offshore oil platform built at the Bull Arm fabrication site.Shute said the historic win could be a “fantastic” infusion of cash in a province that can certainly use it.“It’s really something.”Smith said Monday he’s hearing the jackpot involves winners who live in small communities including Avondale, Conception Bay South, Holyrood, Bellevue and Come By Chance.“This is a nice good story, about $1.8 million per person. It’s such a nest egg and security,” he said from Conception Bay South.Lloyd Parrott, the general manager of PTL Services, which has a contract with North Atlantic Refining in Come By Chance, N.L., according to its website, said in a weekend text message “we are very happy for all of the workers.” Parrott said he had no further comment at this time.Lynn Hindy of local clothing store Universal Corporate Wear said it’s one of those dream-come-true stories everyone can appreciate.“A lot of people are delighted with the fact that it was a group of hard-working individuals who won the money,” she said in an interview.“Certainly when there’s a win in these types of communities it’s also going to help (them) financially.“Now the families will have some extra income to support local businesses.”Hindy laughed, saying she and her co-workers also buy group lottery tickets and will continue to do so.“There’s hope that one of these days maybe we’ll be winners of a grand prize.”They have every reason to dream.The three previous record Atlantic Canada jackpots of $30 million were all won in Newfoundland and Labrador, said Shute: “Placentia, Conception Bay South and Labrador City.”Follow @suebailey on Twitter.

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market was lower Monday as traders absorbed a surprise announcement that Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney is leaving that job June 1, 2013, to take the reins at the Bank of England.The TSX had been in the red all morning as traders focused on the potential consequences of failing to avoid a looming U.S. fiscal crisis at the end of the year and while looking to European Union negotiations surrounding the next instalment of badly needed bailout money for Greece.The S&P/TSX composite index lost 61.98 points to 12,151.26 while the TSX Venture Exchange fell 31.99 points to 1,226.98.The Canadian dollar added to earlier losses. It declined 0.4 of a cent to 100.41 cents US.in the wake of the Carney announcement by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty in Ottawa.U.S. indexes were lower amid the release of a new report warning that if lawmakers don’t halt an automatic increase in taxes for households earning less than US$250,000, consumers might curtail their shopping during the current holiday season.The study was prepared by President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council and his Council of Economic Advisers.The Dow Jones industrials were down 100.44 points to 12,909.24, the Nasdaq composite index gave back 12.35 points to 2,954.5 and the S&P 500 index lost 10.33 points to 1,398.82.The report also says a sudden increase in taxes for middle-income taxpayers would reduce consumer spending in 2013 by nearly $200 billion, significantly slowing the economic recovery.Traders are hoping to see U.S. politicians make progress this week in arriving at a new budget deal that would stop the imposition of those tax hikes along with steep spending cuts at the start of the year.If they don’t, the shock from going over a so-called fiscal cliff would likely push the economy back into recession and damage what is already a fragile economic recovery.On the corporate front, Research in Motion Ltd. stock failed to catch a lift after CIBC World Markets upgraded RIM to sector outperform from sector perform with a US$17 share target.

Onex shares declined 46 cents to $40.09.Meanwhile, eurozone finance ministers met in Brussels for a third time in recent weeks to get a deal together to release some C44 billion for Greece, which has been surviving on bailouts since 2010.The eurozone ministers, Greece’s international creditors and the International Monetary Fund have been unable to agree on an agreement.Greece is unlikely to complete its program of budget cuts and reforms by 2014 and is likely to be given an additional two years to reach that goal.But that extension will cost several billion euros more, and it is disagreements over how to fund this that have stopped Greece from getting its money.The gold sector was down 1.1% as December bullion faded $3.20 to US$1,748.20 an ounce.

“It’s important that all sides will adhere to this,” Martin Nesirky told a news briefing at UN Headquarters in New York. “We all understand that there is a lack of trust between parties, and therefore we all understand that we cannot be sure yet what will transpire, but the hope is that guns will fall silent for the people of Syria, so that they have peace and quiet during this holy holiday.”Expectations for the ceasefire had arisen over recent days, amidst reports that some of the warring parties were planning to agree to it.According to media reports, the Syrian army announced today that it would observe the ceasefire, although it reserved the right to respond to any rebel attack or attempts to reinforce the armed opposition, elements of which have indicated that they would also back the move. Reportedly, one opposition group said it was not committed to the ceasefire but may halt operations if other rebel groups did.While in Tehran last week, the UN and League of Arab States Joint Special Representative for the crisis in Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, had appealed to Iranian authorities to assist in achieving a ceasefire during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, underscoring that such a move – during one of the holiest holidays celebrated by Muslims around the world – would help create an environment that would allow a political process to develop. Earlier this week, Mr. Brahimi had been in the Syrian capital, Damascus, for meetings; currently, he is in Egypt.Taking place on Friday, the religious observance of Eid al-Adha – or the Feast of the Sacrifice – commemorates the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God.More than 20,000 people, mostly civilians, have died in Syria since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began some 20 months ago. A further 2.5 million Syrians urgently need humanitarian aid, and over 340,000 have crossed the border to Syria’s neighbouring countries, according to UN estimates.Along with his counterpart at the League of Arab States, Nabil El Araby, Secretary-General Ban had previously called on all the parties in Syria to heed Mr. Brahimi’s call, in addition to calling on the international community to support the ceasefire appeal.In his remarks to reporters, and echoing comments made by the Security Council, as well as the UN and Arab League Secretaries-General, Mr. Nesirky also highlighted the need for international support for the ceasefire.“Those with influence in the region, countries and parties, really need to exercise that influence on all parties so that this suspension of violence can really take place and then take hold – because, ultimately, the aim is to drive towards a ceasefire and beyond that on to a political track so that the aspirations of the Syrian people can be met,” he said.The spokesperson also noted the need for humanitarian access. Earlier this week, various UN humanitarian agencies indicated they had pre-positioned emergency aid packages to send to people in need in Syria, should the ceasefire take place. “Should the guns fall silent, should there be a suspension of violence, then humanitarian workers are ready to move in, convoys are ready to go, to be able to reach areas that have not been easily accessible because of the fighting,” Mr. Nesirky said. “So this would be UN humanitarian workers working with and through the Syrian Arab Red Crescent.” “A great deal of thought and planning and pre-positioning has gone into this,” he added. “We would simply fervently hope that the guns do fall silent, that there is a suspension in the violence, so that humanitarian workers can help those who are most in need.”
United Nations representatives and senior government officials from landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) in Europe, Asia and the Pacific are meeting in Vientiane, Laos, to discuss how to fully participate in global trade and overcome isolation from world markets and other socio-economic consequences of not having access to a sea.“The challenge before many LLDCs is to secure a sustained positive economic growth that delivers decent jobs and enables countries to make significant strides towards poverty reduction and broad based sustainable development,” said the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), LLDCs and Small Island Developing States, Gyan Chandra Acharya.The three-day conference, which started today, features representatives from 12 LLDCs in Asia and the Pacific – Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mongolia, Nepal, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan – and two in Europe – the Republic of Moldova and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.Participants are conducting the final regional ten-year review of the Almaty Programme of Action, a framework for cooperation between the landlocked and the transit access developing countries – nations that have often been at odds due to their geographic configuration.The plan reinforces the right of all countries to enjoy secure access to the sea and establishes a set of policy guidelines for reducing red tape for landlocked country exports, while also respecting the prerogatives of the access nations.It also sets the stage for strengthened national economies and greater convergence of national interests by cementing international and national commitment to upgrade rail, road, air and pipeline infrastructure in both the landlocked and the access countries.“Despite many challenges faced by LLDCs, I am optimistic. With the support and cooperation of transit countries and international community at large, LLDCs of the region not only can realize their full development potential, but can also play an important role as landbridges,” the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), Noeleen Heyzer, said in her opening statement.The meeting seeks to identify policy recommendations and actions in four priority areas – transit policy issues; infrastructure development and maintenance; trade facilitation and market access; and international support measures. The decisions will be discussed at a meeting later this month, and then at the Ten-Year Review Conference of the Almaty Programme of Action in 2014.In addition, the ideas presented this week are likely to guide priorities for the global development agenda beyond 2015, the deadline for achieving the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).A recently launched ESCAP-World Bank trade cost database shows that trade costs of LLDCs are still extremely high, typically four to seven times higher than those of most other middle-income developing countries in Asia largely due to constraints they face due to their lack of access to sea.Included on the agenda for this week is transport infrastructure development. Discussions this week are expected to include upgrades to the Asian Highway and the Trans-Asian Railway networks to better connect ports.Also up for discussion is membership to the World Trade Organization (WTO). In the past decade, only four LLDCs became members of WTO, with six others currently undergoing the process. Ms. Heyzer urged the international community to facilitate this membership on “easy and expedited” terms.
“Taking civilians hostage is indefensible,” said Nicholas Haysom, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and head of UNAMA. “I call for the immediate and unconditional release of all civilians detained and a halt to this horrible practice,” he stressed. UNAMA said that armed Taliban personnel executed at least 10 men from a group of nearly 200 men, women and children that they forcibly removed from three civilian buses on 30 May in the Ali Abad district of Kunduz province. Many passengers were mistreated by the assailants in order for them to identify those with connections to the Government or security forces. In addition to 10 men who were subsequently murdered, the fate of a further 10 passengers remains unknown, UNAMA said. In a separate incident on 1 June, armed attackers abducted 25 civilian men and women who were travelling in two vehicles in the Balkh Ab district of the northern province of Saripul. All passengers were reported to be from the Hazara community. While four women and one elderly man were subsequently released, the fate of the 20 others remains unknown, according to UNAMA.
