  • Russian Hackers, Superspies and Climate Change
    by davidmcc on February 17, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    Other than some still happy with Trump’s ascendance, few doubt that Russia intervened in US electoral politics. The hacking of Democratic Party and campaign staff communications and their release at critical times may not have determined the election outcome. Previously, Russia sought to influence elections in Europe and, as we will see, their stake in the US outcome was much higher. read mor […]

  • Why the Government Needs to Hear from You by Feb. 15

    Our animal transport regulations were enacted in 1977. For context, that was the year the first Apple computer hit the market and the year that Elvis Presley died. Scientific understanding of, and public sentiment towards animals have changed a lifetime since then. We now know that, like the human animal, farmed animals are capable of experiencing complex and profound physical and psychological suffering. read mor […]

    There is every indication that Trump’s government will roll back environmental regulations and systematically disregard climate change. Trump’s world sees environmental deregulation as about ‘freedom’ and ‘reducing bureaucracy’ and especially ‘making money’. In reality it is about utter indifference to safety, health, long‐term prosperity and security. read mor […]

  • 'He's a Liar': Why British Columbians Are So Over Justin Trudeau
    by Michael Harris on February 26, 2017 at 12:50 am

    This article originally appeared on iPolitics. The man sitting at the head of the table has a face that should be on money. It is calm, etched with wrinkle lines of infinite patience, utterly immune to honeyed words. Grand Chief Stewart Phillip has heard more vows than the parsons in Reno’s drive-thru wedding chapels — most of them destined to be broken by the politicians who made them. Yet behind the softness, the weary eyes suggest something else. These are undefeated eyes. I am in the downtown Vancouver boardroom of the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs and the gentle voice is saying some very tough things. “My wife and I were scheduled to march in the Chinese New Year’s parade in Vancouver, until we found out that Trudeau was going to be there,” he says. “No way was I going to meet him unless I was on one side of the barrier, and he was on the other.” Tags: Site Cjustin trudeauKinder MorganGrand Chief Stewart PhillipLNG […]

  • B.C. Cancels Controversial Hazardous Waste Disposal Permit in Shawnigan Lake Watershed
    by Carol Linnitt on February 24, 2017 at 12:24 am

    B.C. environment minister Mark Polak announced today she is revoking a permit granted to Cobble Hill Holdings for the disposal of 5 million tonnes of contaminated waste in a local quarry in the Shawnigan Lake watershed, roughly 40 kilometres north of Victoria on Vancouver Island. “Effective immediately, I am cancelling the waste discharge permit for Cobble Hill Holdings because the company has failed to meet the requirements outlined in my Jan. 27 letter,” the minister stated in a press release. Polak said the company did not provide B.C. with proof of financial security in the form of a letter of credit by a determined deadline. “Cobble Hill Holdings has been given multiple opportunities to respond to outstanding non-compliance and has repeatedly missed deadlines with respect to its permit requirements,” the minister stated. The company was cited for non-compliance both this fall and last for failing to control water runoff from the waste site, a fact that heightened concerns of Shawnigan Lake residents who felt that the project would contaminate their drinking water.

  • We Need to Admit the Limitations of Science When it Comes to Pipeline Decisions
    by Eric Swanson on February 22, 2017 at 7:43 pm

    With federal decisions on major oil pipeline and tanker projects in the headlines, many suggest our elected officials should lean more on science to make these kinds of decisions. Those exhortations sound very reasonable. But they reveal an enormously important misunderstanding about the role of science in making decisions on major resource projects. Take the case of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project on the West Coast. On one side, you have staunch opposition from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation and other coastal and Fraser River First Nations, West Coast municipalities like Vancouver, Burnaby and Victoria, and a sizable percentage of B.C.’s voting public. On the other side, you have staunch support from Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, the mayors of Calgary and Edmonton, and a sizable percentage of Alberta’s voting public. Is one side simply too dumb to understand the science — or simply willing to flatly ignore it? Of course not.

  • Battle to Protect Northern Yukon, Home of Pristine Peel Watershed, From Industry Heads to Supreme Court
    by James Wilt on February 21, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    Almost 40 years ago, former federal judge Thomas Berger issued a final report in the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry, at the time Canada’s longest, largest and most comprehensive industrial project review. The massive two-volume report was the product of exhaustive consultations between 1974 and 1977 with Dene, Métis and Inuit peoples, and recommended that the proposed construction of a gas pipeline be delayed for a full decade in the Northwest Territories and permanently barred from the Northern Yukon as it would “entail irreparable environmental losses of national and international importance.” It turned out to be an incredibly pivotal moment in the history of Indigenous rights and ecological protections in Canada, arguably helping to preserve the largely pristine Northern Yukon, Mackenzie Delta and Beaufort Sea for the decades since. And on March 22, 2017 — a single day before his 84th birthday — Berger will fight another battle on behalf of the region, this time representing three Yukon First Nations (Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in, Na-cho Nyak Dun and Vuntut-Gwitchin) and two environmental organizations (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and Yukon Conservation Society) in the Supreme Court of Canada over land-use planning in the Peel Watershed.

  • Internal Division in Gitxan First Nation Raises Questions About Informed Consent for LNG Pipeline
    by Discourse Media on February 21, 2017 at 1:37 am

    This investigation was reported by Trevor Jang for Discourse Media. It is the second part of an ongoing investigation into how government negotiates with First Nations for major resource development projects. Nestled in the forests of northwestern British Columbia, Richard Wright hauls a 30-pound moose chest out of a smokehouse. He shot the animal a few days ago, just a few kilometres north of camp. “You want your wood to smoulder, not flame or get too warm. So you either get some alder or some cottonwood, which changes the flavour that you’re adding to the meat,” Wright says, after placing the chest in the back of his trunk, followed by the legs, rump, backbone and spine. Wright is preserving food in the way the Gitxsan people here have for many generations. The act also has a deeper purpose; this camp, where he and others are living off the land for the past two years, is a form of protest, an occupation of a sort. The Madii Lii camp, which includes a cabin, smokehouse, greenhouse and garden, strategically blocks the path of the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission (PRGT) pipeline. The 900-kilometre pipeline is proposed to carry natural gas from northeastern British Columbia to the Pacific NorthWest LNG (PNW LNG) export terminal proposed for Lelu Island on the province’s north coast.

  • Study to focus on pollution potential of oil and gas wastewater spread on roads
    by Pennsylvania State University on February 24, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    Understanding the environmental impact of using oil and gas wastewater as a road treatment may lead to safer water resources and stricter government regulations, according to Penn State researchers.William Burgos, professor of environmental engineering, and Lara Fowler, senior lecturer at Penn State Law and assistant director of the Institutes of Energy and the Environment, will study this impact through research funded by the United States Geological Society.“In the northwest corner of Pennsylvania, gravel road aggregate has a lot of clay and when you drive over it, it tends to kick up a lot of dust, so they need to use dust suppressants,” Burgos said. “It just so happens that the northwestern portion of the state also has had a lot of oil and gas activity.&rdquo […]

    NASA has estimated rainfall from the Pineapple Express over the coastal regions southwestern Oregon and northern California from the series of storms in February, 2017.The West Coast is once again feeling the effects of the "Pineapple Express." Back in early January one of these "atmospheric river" events, which taps into tropical moisture from as far away as the Hawaiian Islands, brought heavy rains from Washington state and Oregon all the way down to southern California. This second time around, many of those same areas were hit again. The current rains are a result of three separate surges of moisture impacting the West Coast. The first such surge in this current event began impacting the Pacific coastal regions of Washington, Oregon, and northern California on February 15.&nbs […]
