Haida Blockade Weyerhaeuser Logging Operations

Indymedia: Haida are blocking Weyerhaeuser logging and barges across Haida Gwaii, "BC." Having trashed much of their holdings on Haida Gwaii (aka Queen Charlotte Islands), Weyerhaeuser is trying to cut and run by selling off their liscence to Brascan without Haida consent. It may not prove to be so easy.

Martin poised to make critical decision on vehicle emissions

WildCanada: The federal government is poised to make a very important decision this week on how Canada will reach its target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from passenger vehicles. In 2002, Canada ratified the Kyoto Protocol and committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to 6% below 1990 levels by 2010. Thanks to Russia's ratification in 2004, the Kyoto Protocol became international law on February 16th 2005, giving Canada a legal obligation to meet its Kyoto commitments. The auto-industry is trying to undermine significant greenhouse gas emission legislation and persuade Prime Minister Martin to agree to a voluntary arrangement, rather than regulation.
