IMF says Sri Lanka needs to talk with China about debt restructuring
(Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Sri Lanka should kick off debt restructuring talks with its bilateral lender China, while the island state's government seeks a financing loan from the Washington-based fund."China is a big creditor, and Sri Lanka has to engage proactively with it on a debt restructuring," Krishna Srinivasan, director of the IMF's Asia and Pacific Department, told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday.The island of 22 million is currently engulfed by its most severe economic and political crisis in recent history.Six-time prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was recently appointed as president after a popular uprising ousted his predecessor following months of severe shortages of fuel, food and medicines.The government recently decided to restrict fuel imports for 12 months.The country owes Beijing some $6.5 billion in financing including development bank loans and a central bank swap, according to data from the Institute of International Finance (IFF).The world's second-largest economy has invested in projects such as highways, a port, an airport and a coal power plant. Japan and India are also bilateral creditors to Sri Lanka."Sri Lanka has to engage with its creditors, both private and official bilateral, on a debt workout to ensure debt sustainability is restored," Srinivasan said, as he pointed out that technical talks on a new IMF program are ongoing with both officials from the finance ministry and the central bank.Sri Lanka's foreign ministry and central bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Humber River Hospital, said an epidural is “one of the most popular choices for pain management in labour.” Prepare for shortage of epidural catheter kits for pain management during childbirth: SHA There are concerns right now in Canada and around the world due to a worldwide shortage of epidural kits used to treat pain in childbirth, but also for pain relief during or after various surgical procedures.“An epidural is part of really multi-modal options for pain management in labour and the discussion about an epidural happens throughout the entire pregnancy with the patient’s provider, whether that’s an OBGYN like me, a family physician or a midwife … and it is absolutely a patient’s choice,” said Hawkins.The Ontario Ministry of Health is watching the situation unfold in other Canadian provinces where there are shortages in the availability of epidural catheters due to supply chain issues.“Currently, Ontario has an adequate supply of epidural catheters and women are able to access epidurals for childbirth. The Ministry of Health and Ontario Health are actively engaging with Health Canada, suppliers, distributors and manufacturers across Ontario to understand the current situation and supply forecasts in order to mitigate any potential impact to patients,” a spokesperson for the ministry told Global News in a statement.The shortage is due to a supply chain issue from one component of the epidural catheter kit.

Pope Francis receiving a headdress elicits heated emotions amongst First Nations communities
headdress by Chief Wilton Littlechild was a powerful and symbolic moment — but the symbolism is not sitting well with everyone.The Pope was given the headdress on Treaty 6 territory, in the central Alberta First Nations community of Maskwacis, after he apologized for the Catholic Church’s role in the residential school system on Monday.The apology came with cheering from the crowd, and some people were weeping. Soon after, Chief Littlechild went on stage and placed a headdress on Pope Francis’ head.The former member of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission attended residential schools for 14 years as a child in Alberta.It was a stunning image: Francis briefly wearing the full Indigenous headdress, its rows of soft white feathers fastened in place by a colorful, beaded headband.The Vatican and the pope clearly appreciated the gesture: Francis kissed Littlechild’s hands after receiving the headdress, something he has done in the past as a sign of respect for Holocaust survivors, and has done on this trip for residential school survivors.The Vatican obviously understood the symbolic significance of the moment, putting the photo on the front page of the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano under the headline “I humbly beg forgiveness.”Headdresses historically are a symbol of respect, worn by Native American war chiefs and warriors.For many Plains tribes, for example, each feather placed on a headdress has significance and had to be earned through an act of compassion or bravery.Some modern-day First Nations leaders have been given war bonnets in ceremonies accompanied by prayers and songs.“It’s honouring a man as a chief, as a honourary chief and leader in the community and in doing that it’s actually adopted him as one
