Ottawa, Oct 31 (IBNS): Ontario premier and Progressive Conservative (PC) leader Doug Ford has said the country should get rid of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the next year, when the federal elections will be held, media reports said.

Ford introduced PC leader Andrew Scheer as the party's Prime Ministerial candidate.

He has criticised Trudeau for his plan to impose carbon tax to tackle the climate change.

Ford has been quoted by The Hamilton Spectator as saying, "There's only one way — one way — we're going to get rid of the carbon tax and that is by getting rid of Justin Trudeau."

"Get rid of Justin Trudeau, you're going to have more money in your pocket. Businesses are going to be able to thrive," the premier added.

Acknowledging that climate change is a real problem, Scheer said as he has been quoted by The Hamilton Spectator as saying, "It's wonderful all the new voices that are coming out to fight this carbon tax."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that under the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, Canada will implement a revenue-neutral carbon tax from 2019.

The federal carbon pollution price will start at $20 per ton in 2019.

The carbon tax will be applied in New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The federal elections will be held in 2019.

Erdogan's Turkey turns Hagia Sophia into a mosque again; UNESCO regrets #HagiaSophia, #Turkey, #Istanbul, #HagiaSophiaMosqueAgain Istanbul/IBNS: Hagia Sophia, Turkey's iconic monument, a UNESCO World Heritage and one of the central attractions of its capital Istanbul, is no longer a museum. It has been turned back as a mosque though some 1500 years ago it was built as an Orthodox Christian cathedral. Hagia Sophia was converted into a mosque during the Ottoman time in 1453 while under Ataturk it was turned into a museum in 1935. The decision comes amid a growing rise of the Islamists in Turkey who had been demanding that it be restored as a mosque though Opposition leaders with secular credentials had been against the move. A top court in Turkey ruled that turning it into a museum in 1935 by modern Turkey's secular architect Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was illegal, paving the way for present Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to declare it as a mosque again and to open it for Muslim prayers. Erdogan made the announcement an hour after the court ruled the conversion to museum in 1935 as illegal and scrapped its status. "May it be beneficial," posted Erdogan on Twitter, sharing an official document on the change with his signature. UNESCO regrets In an immediate reaction, UNESCO said it "deeply regrets" the decision. UNESCO said it was "regrettable that the Turkish decision was not the subject of dialog nor notification beforehand". "UNESCO calls on the Turkish authorities to open a dialog without delay in order to avoid a step back from the universal value of this exceptional heritage whose preservation will be reviewed by the World Heritage Committee in its next session," the United Nation's cultural body said in a statement. Istanbul icon of beauty and wonderment According to Turkey's official tourism website, Hagia Sophia is a remarkable achievement in the history of architecture. and a living proof of mankind's revolt against the laws of physics and it calls it a monument whose importance transcends borders. It is one of UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage sites attracting millions of visitors across the world with its majestic grandeur
