Canada to Monitor Water Traffic in Northwest Passage

Canada to monitor water traffic in Northwest Passage

Last Updated: Monday, September 24, 2007 | 10:58 PM CT
CBC News

In the latest attempt to assert its Arctic sovereignty, Canada is set to begin monitoring all water-based traffic in the Northwest Passage using underwater listening devices, sources have told CBC News.

As early as next summer, the federal government plans to lay and test fibre optic cables connected to underwater listening devices in the passage that allow the military to keep a close eye on who might be trying to access the waters unannounced. The technology will detect not only ships, but also submarines.

REGINA – A Saskatchewan judge overstepped his authority by pointing the finger at two Saskatoon police officers over the freezing death of Neil Stonechild 17 years ago, a lawyer for one of the officers argued Monday.

Larry Hartwig and Brad Senger are appealing their dismissal from the Saskatoon police service in the wake of Justice David Wright’s inquiry into the death of Stonechild, whose frozen body was discovered on Saskatoon’s outskirts in November 1990.

Pine beetle epidemic could spark fires, floods

WENDY STUECK
September 25, 2007

The kinds of floods that triggered mudslides and threatened northern communities this past spring could become much more frequent as a result of British Columbia’s unprecedented mountain pine beetle epidemic, community leaders were told yesterday.

And if floods weren’t enough to worry about, cities and towns in beetle-hit areas also face a fire threat from beetle-killed timber that, if left standing, could quickly turn into an inferno.
