Sarah Dorner comes from a family that is all too familiar with the impact of governments who are hostile to francophones. She’s a descendant of the original French settlers of Detroit-Windsor. Her mother’s grandparents were married at a church in Ford City just two years after thousands rioted on Sept. 8, 1917 to protest the arrival of a priest who they believe was supportive of Regulation 17, newly-imposed controversial rules in Ontario schools aimed at curbing French. “One thing is certain, though,” @sarahdorner defiantly tells @toulastake, “more than three hundred years of…

The Darkwoods Conservation Area in southeastern B.C. is home to at least 40 species at risk, such as grizzly bears, wolverines, peregrine falcons, mountain caribou and whitebark pine. In an attempt to meet international climate objectives, protect the only inland temperate rainforest, and conserve “carbon sinks” to last into future generations, the federal and provincial governments announced new funding to expand the conservative area established in 2008. The $14.6 million will support the addition of 7,900 hectares (19,500 acres) to the DarkwoodsConservation Area. It is to conserve lands in the Next…

It looks like Canadian taxpayers and workers aren’t the only people Bombardier CEO Alain ‘Bailout’ Bombardier has managed to anger this week. With Canadians already outraged at Bailout Bellemare – who presides over a company that has been repeatedly bailed out by Canadian taxpayers yet just slashed 3000 Canadian jobs – Bombardier investors don’t seem too happy either. A recent report details how Bailout Bellemare tried to push an optimistic message at a recent investor confidence. But people didn’t buy into that message. Last week, Bombardier announced that they would need to use one-time…

Ontario Environment Minister Rod Phillips says the only thing you need to know about his relationship with his federal counterpart Catherine McKenna is that her office spelled his name wrong in an official letter sent to his office. In a letter to “the Honorable Rob Phillips” Thursday, McKenna signaled the federal government is circumventing Ontario’s decision to cancel its cap and trade program and all associated climate policies. Phillips shared the letter with reporters hours after McKenna announced at an insulation plant in Milton, Ont., that the federal government would…

TransCanada’s $10-billion Keystone XL pipeline project has suffered another setback after a U.S. federal judge blocked its construction to allow more time to study the potential environmental impact. The Great Falls Tribune reports U.S. District Judge Brian Morris’ order on Thursday came as the Calgary-based energy giant was preparing to build the first stages of the oil pipeline in northern Montana. Indigenous and environmental groups had sued TransCanada and the U.S. Department of State after Nebraska authorities approved an alternative route to the one TransCanada had proposed through the state.…

MONTREAL — Bombardier Inc. announced Thursday it will shed 5,000 jobs company-wide and sell off two units as part of chief executive Alain Bellemare’s five-year plan to rein in costs, focus on rail and business jets and reduce the net long-term debt of $9 billion. About 2,500 Bombardier workers will be laid off in Quebec and 600 in Ontario, with the 2,000 other cuts occurring overseas, according to a spokesman, who did not specify the units. The company said it will sell its Q400 turboprop aircraft program to a subsidiary of Longview…

TD Bank is warning about the massive deficit leftover from the Wynne Liberals in Ontario. The Ford Conservatives inherited a province with the largest sub-national debt in the world, and the deficits claimed by the Wynne Liberals turned out to be far worse than expected. TD economists said “The upcoming fiscal update will provide a huge opportunity for the government to signal how it plans to slay the deficit monster. From a credibility perspective, the sooner the government gets its fiscal house in order, the better.” Added TD, “If the government plans to…

The cars were for the G7 summit… A new report reveals that the Trudeau government spent $23 million on over 600 cars for the G7 summit, and is now having trouble selling the cars to recoup our taxpayer dollars. The vehicles were purchased by the RCMP, most of them for ‘motorcades’ for the G7 summit, even though the RCMP should have a massive fleet of such vehicles from the purchases of past decades. The government is keeping under 10% of the cars. According to a Postmedia report, “For “motorcade” purposes the government…
