TORONTO – The overwhelming response to a panel interview with David Crombie, Paul Bedford, Jane Fairburn and Jack Diamond, moderated by renowned journalist John Lorinc and keynote address by former mayor David Miller, resulted in NOJetsTO looking for a larger venue. Supporters for the NOJetsTO campaign flocked from across Toronto to fill the OISE auditorium on a chilly Monday night, making the event an outright success.
“The event was a success and the packed house confirmed that the support for NOJetsTO is enormous, spans the GTA and is growing day by the day.” NoJetsTO chair Anshul Kapoor said. “It is clear that Torontonians can see beyond Porter Airlines misleading advertising campaign, and want to save their waterfront.”

Dr John Cherry, a hydrogeologist with the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA), says fracking wells in Canada aren't built for the long haul; they tend to spring leaks.

OTTAWA - The decision by the Pest Management Regulation Agency (PMRA) to let another year go by without acting on bee killing pesticides -- even after admitting its actions to date have been inadequate -- is unacceptable, says Sierra Club Canada.
The PMRA posted a notice on its website September 12th admitted: "current agricultural practices related to the use of neonicotinoid treated corn and soybean seed are affecting the environment due to their impacts on bees and other pollinators."
