First Nations Vets Remember at Wanuskewin -The StarPhoenix

First Nations vets remember at Wanuskewin

Janet French, The StarPhoenix
Published: Tuesday, November 13, 2007

It was 7 a.m., and Roger Maaka decided not to go to a Remembrance Day ceremony.

By 11 a.m. Sunday, Maaka, a professor and head of Native studies at the University of Saskatchewan who served in the New Zealand Army for 20 years, was carrying the Union Jack into the sunlit atrium of Wanuskewin Heritage Park. It was a hard decision, because he has “mixed feelings” about reliving those memories.

Mining industry and environmentalists at odds over reporting requirements -CCE Mag

Mining industry and environmentalists at odds over reporting requirements

Environmental groups have brought a lawsuit against Canada’s Minister of the Environment over how the mining industry reports to the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI).

The lawsuit launched on November 7 is an application for judicial review filed in the Federal court. It was brought by Ecojustice on behalf of Mining Watch Canada and Great Lakes United. The lawsuit alleges that the Minister is not conforming to the law because he is not requiring mining companies to report the pollutants they release to tailing ponds and waste rock.

A Canadian Solution to Scrap Tie Disposal; CP Signs Agreement with the ACC

CALGARY, Nov. 9 – On Thursday, Canadian Pacific hosted leaders of the Aboriginal Cogeneration Corporation (ACC) for the official signing of an agreement that offers a new Canadian solution to CP’s need for disposal of scrap railway cross ties.

Through this new program, the scrap ties will be converted to useable energy through a process called gasification. In turn, this creates a combustible gas which is used to operate an electrical generator which feeds electrical power into existing power transmission grids. Compared to conventional burning methods, the plant is designed to gasify any biomass waste products, and through the process, create useable energy, while, at the same time, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
