New study suggests oilsands greenhouse gas emissions underestimated

New study suggests oilsands greenhouse gas emissions underestimatedNew federal research suggests greenhouse gas emissions from Alberta's oilsands may be significantly higher than industry reports. In a study published Tuesday, Environment Canada scientists say four major oilsands mines are releasing an average of about one-third more carbon dioxide per barrel of oil than they report — a crucial number used for everything from determining national emissions levels to calculating carbon tax. Lead author John Liggio and his colleagues analyzed air monitoring samples captured in a series of flights above the four sites during the course of a month in 2013.

More than 36 per cent of eligible voters have already cast their ballots in the advance polls, in a province that traditionally sees voter turnout at more than 80 per cent.

New commemorative loonie marking 'progress' for LGBTQ2 people to be unveiled today

New commemorative loonie marking 'progress' for LGBTQ2 people to be unveiled todayTORONTO — The Royal Canadian Mint is unveiling a new commemorative loonie today meant to mark what it calls a key milestone for lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and two-spirited people in the country.The agency says the new one-dollar coin pays tribute to Parliament's passing of legislation that "initiated the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada."It says the coin, which will be presented in Toronto today, celebrates "50 years of progress for LGBTQ2 Canadians."But historians and advocates are raising concerns about the message behind the new loonie, saying it mistakenly suggests equality has been achieved and largely as a result of the federal government's actions.A group of activists and academics is holding a news conference near the mint's event today to challenge myths surrounding the 1969 Criminal Code reform.York University historian Tom Hooper, who is part of the group, says LGTBTQ people faced continued criminalization over the decades that followed the legal changes.He said discrimination against LGBTQ people persists today, noting as examples that trans and queer people of colour still face issues with policing and people with HIV remain subject to criminalization.The mint "could have consulted people who have knowledge of this history but they didn't," Hooper said, adding he hopes the agency will do so in the future.He acknowledged no campaign can compete with roughly three million coins but said the project is at least fuelling a public conversation about LGBTQ history."As a historian, I'm hoping to inform as many people as I can about our history. So in some ways the coin is opening up that opportunity," he said.The mint has said it is largely informed by the Department of Canadian Heritage and its "anniversaries of significance" when it comes to selecting commemorative themes for coins.The Canadian Press
