Hundreds of Lanarkshire runners help raise funds for mental health charity in memory of tragic doctor

Hundreds of runners from Lanarkshire and beyond took to the streets last weekend in memory of a much loved local doctor.

The Newton Road Runners organised a 10k in the Cambuslang area to help remember Dr Cat Gaskell, who passed away last year.

On an emotional day, with Cat's parents and sister in attendance, a total of £1400 was raised for the Penumbra mental health charity thanks to over 300 runners competing in both an adult and junior race.

President of the road runners, Joanne Thorburn, said the day had been a great, if raw, way to remember Cat.

She told Lanarkshire Live : "It went amazingly well. There was a wee late rush in the days before the 10K which meant we ended with 300 runners in the senior's, which was our capacity.

"It was a brilliant day and it was still very emotional. Last year when we had the run for Cat it was smaller and more intimate, but this year it felt more overwhelming because of the amount of people there.

"I spoke to her mum, dad and sister just before I did the tribute to Cat prior to the race and I just about managed to keep it all together.

"Someone told me there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd at that point, and what we discovered was that a lot of ex colleagues and friends of hers had signed up to take part, and we were all humbled to

Alberta’s Kenney urges Poilievre not to focus on ‘fringe issues’
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says federal Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre needs to steer away from “fringe issues” if he aims to lead not only the party but the country.“He understands that to become prime minister, he needs to speak to the aspirations of regular Canadians, not to fringe issues.” Alberta’s premier-designate wants ‘greater’ provincial autonomy, but is it her 1st priority? Kenney also believes that Poilievre is “wise beyond his years.”“He’s a brilliant young man,” he said.According to a recent poll from the end of last month, Poilievre overtook Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the best leader for the country.“Since the moment he was elected leader, he’s demonstrated great discipline in focusing on the kitchen-table issues that matter to ordinary Canadian families,” said Kenney.However, Poilievre has had a number of interactions with fringe movements in Canada.Most recently, a Global News analysis of 50 of Polievre’s official YouTube videos showed that they included a hidden tag appealing to a misogynistic online movement that Canada’s intelligence agencies view as a danger.The tag, #mgtow, is an acronym for “Men Going Their Own Way” — a mostly-online movement consisting of anti-feminists who cut women completely out of their lives.The Conservative leader has also drawn criticism for his support of the convoy protest that paralyzed downtown Ottawa and blockaded border crossings in February.Poilievre chose to walk with James Topp, an activist with connections to convoy figures who have marched across the nation to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates.After posing for a photograph with Jeremy Mackenzie — the de-facto leader of a far-right group called Diagalon who was arrested on a Canada-wide warrant for

Why isn't Donald Trump in cuffs if AG's probe found potential crimes?
NEW YORK (AP) - New York's attorney general says her three-year investigation of former President Donald Trump uncovered potential crimes in the way he ran his real estate empire, including allegations of bank and insurance fraud.So why isn't Trump being prosecuted?Attorney General Letitia James didn't seek to slap handcuffs on the Republican this week, as some of his critics hoped. Instead, she announced a civil lawsuit seeking $250 million and his permanent banishment from doing business in the state.Like many things involving the law and Trump, the reasons James, a Democrat, opted for a lawsuit rather than a prosecution are complicated.For one, even if she did want to prosecute Trump, she doesn't have jurisdiction under state law to bring a criminal case against him or any of the lawsuit's other defendants, including the Trump Organization and his three eldest children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.In New York, the state attorney general's office is only allowed to prosecute a limited range of offenses on its own, like bid rigging and payroll violations.Otherwise, the office must partner with a county district attorney on a prosecution — as James' office did with the Manhattan district attorney's office in a case against Trump's longtime finance chief — or obtain what's known as a criminal referral from the governor or a state agency that has jurisdiction over the alleged wrongdoing.New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization alleging business fraud involving several assets, including properties in Manhattan, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
