On Saturday, Montrealers joined a worldwide march to bring awareness to climate change during the COP24, the United Nations Climate Change Conference.


The rally in Montreal included citizens, environmentalists and Indigenous leaders who were protesting the Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline.

Could Nova Scotia’s new alcohol regulations create a domino effect in the rest of the country?


According to Global News, the Maritime province’s decision to remove limits on how much alcohol can be brought into the province for personal consumption has come as a result of a controversial debate at the Supreme Court.


Executive director of the Canadian Constitution Foundation, Howard Anglin believes the move could be good for the whole country, “Every province that … moves to reduce friction at our internal provincial borders should be applauded for that and, hopefully, will be an example to other provinces.”


Business owners in other Maritime provinces also believe this move could be a positive change.



U.S., Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait oppose a special report on climate change at this year’s United Nation Climate Summit.


The report which was commissioned three years ago as part of the Paris Agreement, details what would happen if average global temperatures rise by 1.5 C, and how to ensure they don't go higher.


The CBC reports that nearly all of the 200 countries present were ready to welcome the special report, except the US, and the three other delegates who refused to endorse it.


Alden Meyer of the Union of Concerned Scientists said, ”I think it was a key moment, the fact that a group of four countries were trying to diminish the value and importance of a scientific report they themselves, with all other countries, requested three years ago in Paris is pretty remarkable."


The four-oil exporting countries objections maybe linked to the suggestion in the report that the use of fossil-fuels be phased out by 2050.
