Fracking shouldn't be welcome anywhere. Its dangerous in a lot of ways.

It's true, solar panels are extremely cost-effective. Maybe put them back on the White House instead?
Donald Trump wants to add solar panels to his much-anticipated border wall

I just about choked when he claimed credit. I read the original publication where it was floated as an idea. When Drumpf so blatantly lies, I wonder if his insecure inner child just wells up to the top and can't help itself. It says, "Donny, you deserve credit for this because you ARE a good boy." So, when it becomes profitable, I suppose he'll be sharing profits with Mexico?

From the man who wants coal mines ramped up to full production. Maybe give those miners the jobs of setting up solar panels in large open desert spaces and jobs to maintain them and look after whatever else is need to send power to Cities, Towns and Villages.

It's a great idea and nobody can handle it because of where in came from. Stop pretending that you care about the environment and only care about vertue signaling. If Obama had this idea you would all call him a God.

I hope the basic income reaches me some day. Been 12 years without a job or welfare. I would love to be able to eat more than one meal a day and buy the med i need to be a productive person.

It should be a universal basic income. It is a win/win situation.

Basic Income would address so many of society's problems. Problems that we don't even equate to poverty but which are tied to it.

While that is good for Bangladesh, a country largely within the tropics, I sometimes worry you might have some crazy ideas to suggest that Canada should waste money on solar and I'm going to nip that in the bud - we don't have enough sun to make solar anywhere near useful. What we do have is vast amounts of moving fresh water which we already use for hydroelectric power generation and is worth more consideration.

06/22/2017 at 17:03
Not sure what you mean. If I install solar here in Toronto, and there's enough to fill the needs I have, I pay nothing to Hydro. If I'm putting back into the grid, can sell back to them. Ditto if I use wind power.

how about pollution???? Destruction of our ecosystem??? Climate change is mostly due to sprawling cities, trapping massive heat and releasing it, more than the bare earth would have... Also, we heat and a/c our homes, and that creates a lot more heat... wow, humanity is beyind stupid today
06/21/2017 at 23:34
Though climate change occurs globally we has humans can very very slowly reduce the extreme weather by reducing our needs that create greenhouse gases.

Aaron, that is true, but there are many disabled (physically or mentally) who have little or no chance of employment, not to mention young adults who are unemployed in great numbers.
06/20/2017 at 17:42
Yes lets take care of our neighbours. During the last federal election I worked with a disabled man who had his income rolled back with a new government in NS. He volunteers because he would be penalized if he was paid. Can you imagine what the administrative costs might be around monitoring the underemployed and disabled. If we pay a basic income then we will save money in the cost of government and more importantly we have help our neighbours.

The best part about basic living wage is the people who are employed but do a horrible job because they're lazy will quit their jobs and save society billions in bad work. That alone is worth it.

Aren't plastics produced by the ' 0ilygarchs' ? A side industry to fossil fuel extraction and marketing? I bring a glass & plate to parties, carry my own tap water, a camper K/F/Spoon set. Next year marks 50 years of saying "n0!" when offered or asked IF I need a plastic bag. Sadly, we have been conditioned to think single use and throw a ways are a...way of life. A " Normal human activity." Let's decondition ourselves. K?
06/19/2017 at 16:22
Whoa? Like whoa what? There is no reason on earth for a plastic water bottle at all anywhere at any time ever. No one needs them. They have a carbon footprint half the size of Trudeau's (that's enormous!) and they are everywhere. They are in the bush, the rural ditches, cities, sidewalks, by highways...So why doesn't the so-called Green party fight for a total Canada wide ban??
06/19/2017 at 23:05
I'm not sure this is a good thing as now, beyond "tidiness" there will be no responsibility attached to yet more unnecessary resource consumption. We need to reduce/eliminate resource use, not find ways to make it morally easier to consume more!!
Yes. Yes we should.

How about we focus on clean energy, saving our lumber industry, fixing the infrastructure of our province, etc. etc. Time to stop selling raw logs, our real estate, etc. to foreign countries - and promote industry here? As a province, we have the brains, technology, expertise and the people willing to do this! We DO have the right to a healthy environment!

I know what it's like to be judged and hated for being yourself, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
I'm nowhere near suffering as much as the LGBTQ community has, so I can only imagine how tough they have it. All over something so trivial.
Why do any of us care what two consenting adults do in their free time?
This is great! I'm not transgender, and I feel like it's entirely made up. But, I'm gay and some people think that is a choice. Frankly, transgendered people do not effect my life in anyway.

I would take you more seriously if this was more then a fight against oil. Still waiting on the raw sewage problem from coast to coast to be something you bring up in parliament. Plus that will create jobs. Most of the pland you have only take away jobs
Over forty years. Across the entire country. 70% of which is cleaned up in the first 24 hours. Do some math, and get some perspective.
How much of the cleanup has the public paid? And how much profit has Enbridge made in this time?
Privatize the profit
Socialize the risk and environmental damage
This is the business environment we have today. And people with money are fighting to maintain this status quo.

Well if the real Justin Trudeau were running Canada, we'd have electoral reform by now. Yes it's that simple. So no, it is not Justin Trudeau running things. It is still Stephen Harper. :( So sad.

Famous Canadian Ice Road Melts for the Last Time

A colossal waste of money. As the perma frost melts, a highway will be pulled here and there by the movement of the tundra. It will break up into chunks of asphalt and stretches will sink into the thawing perma frost. It's a highway to nowhere!
I thought Russia had developed a system to keep the tundra frozen along their major rail route to the north. Canada should look into this.
It outright says in the article that the ice road season hasn't changed or shortened at all since 1983. So what's the issue here?

So...who or what is always stopping the "government" from doing anything??? it seem like we hear "We are going to Fix this" and then never gets done...I know people that work in "regular" jobs that would have fixed all these problems,not lied about it and not do it in a time frame of a century!
Jeez Justin ! It's 2017 for them too ! Quit being so selfie-absorbed and actually do something ! You've given yourself 2 raises in as many years , it's high time you earned them !
Rather than sharing what "their problem" is please share what you would like to see in your title when you post articles ..it inspires and keeps us in focus for change and drive for a vision rather than helplessness and defeat. Just my opinion. I love you but I am getting tired of these titles on the posts and have written letters about it too, but no response. Keep well give us inspiration and visions of what can be.
