"No Threat" to Spotted Owls in Canada, says Environment Minister

PEJ News - Zoe Blunt - Despite petitions from environmental groups, the federal Environment Minister will not step in to protect Canada's most endangered species. Canadian Environment Minister Rona Ambrose says there is ?no imminent threat? of extinction for spotted owls, while experts report the estimated number of remaining owls has fallen from 22 to 17.

J'Accuse! Sauvez la Terre!

RAFE MAIR ~ I use the fish farm issue because it's current and we can all see what happens when we leave the safety of our waters to Gordon Campbell and Co. But it happens throughout the public process. Whether its pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, or use of the environment, the onus is thrust upon the public and those who, pro bono, work on their behalf to demonstrate harm instead of industry proving safety.

Jack Layton and Climate Change

PEJ News - Sue Hiscocks - Political solution /approach to climate change: The only political approach to deal with this issue I can foresee is to create a 'green caucus' in the NDP. "Unite the country" to focus on the environment as a priority issue, all parties, regardless of differences!  We don't have to agree on exact methods or means.

The Dominion
- Kim Petersen - Platinex hired a foreign mercenary to provide security for the company after protesters and blockades disrupted thier operations. The Ontario-based mineral company Platinex has slapped the Ojibwa of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (Big Trout Lake) First Nation (KIFN) with a $10-billion damage suit for refusing the company permission to drill on territory the KIFN says is its own. KIFN argues that it has never signed away ownership of the land and is pursuing a land-claim settlement.

Mad Cow in Manitoba: Another Downer for Canadian Beef Industry

CBC News
- Final test results have confirmed a diagnosis of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in a cow from Manitoba, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Tuesday. An agency investigation determined the owner of the animal, a mature, cross-bred beef cow, purchased it as part of a group in 1992. That means the animal, which lived in the Interlake area, was at least 15 years old, so it was born well before 1997, when Canada imposed a ban on the type of feed associated with BSE.

itscb.com - Dogwood Initiative
- This past weekend an oil tanker carrying approximately 350,000 barrels of ?condensate? entered BC?s inside passage bound for Methanex?s marine terminal. This tanker traveled through Caamano Sound and 166 km up Douglas Channel to Kitimat, along the route where the BC ferry Queen of the North recently sank.  The tanker offloaded its condensate, a toxic mix of chemicals and petroleum derivates used to dilute thick crude oil, onto railcars for transport to Encana?s operations in Alberta.
