Quebec Solidaire calls for a moratorium on logging in sugar bushes

"..."Maple syrup sales are growing rapidly and the maple syrup industry relies on maple trees in the public forest to meet part of the demand," wrote Rouyn-Noranda-Temiscamingue MNA Emilise Lessard-Therrien. "However, quality maple groves that could be tapped are currently threatened by industrial logging authorized by the government. We can't accept this without saying anything..."

FOREST INK: Electrifying the logging industry

"...Switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy in the logging sector will require some major challenges and engineering developments but there are some positive moves taking place. My personal experience includes the purchase of an electric chainsaw which has proven superior in many ways to my old gas motor versions. I have also had the opportunity to drive an electric Nissan Leaf and was impressed by the regenerative braking ability to recover the charging of the battery on the down hill sections..."

One year after crude turned negative, oilpatch relishes first-quarter profit outlook

"...“Everyone was very, very negative on oil and oil demand,” he recalled in an interview, adding the remarkable level of stabilization since shows how resilient the oilpatch can be. “So the market essentially wound up balancing itself out and we had a recovery from the depths of hell to not quite to heaven in terms of current prices, but certainly a very large scale recovery. “Those two forces of supply and demand were brought back into a much better balance and with the demand recovery we’re seeing this year, we’re seeing inventories worldwide get drawn down to more normal levels..."

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: B.C. hasn't managed forests properly

"...Old-growth forests are worth more standing than when they are logged. While they have an immediate economic impact in terms of tourism, they are even more important in terms of the environment: protecting side-hills from erosion, providing habitat for other forms of life and helping to ensure a safe water supply. Old-growth forests are part of the heritage that has been passed on to us and that we must pass on to future generations..."

Stimulus spending on infrastructure won’t ‘kickstart’ COVID recovery: op-ed

"...Next week’s federal budget, the first since the pandemic began, is expected to include details about a massive stimulus package that will cost between $70 billion to $100 billion over the next three years. And yet, if Canada’s past experience with stimulus measures is any guide, this latest effort will not “kickstart” the economy as intended but instead may impede economic recovery while simply adding more government debt. Indeed, pre-budget, there’s limited information available about how the Trudeau government plans to spend this stimulus money, but the government’s recent fall economic statement provided some hints, frequently mentioning infrastructure and the “green economy..."

BLOG: A new twist on the carbon tax?

"...Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision that the federal carbon tax imposed by the Trudeau government is A-OK, and looking at a potential election call, Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole has proposed an alternative to the current national carbon tax. The proposed carbon tax alternative consists of a “carbon price” between $20 per tonne and $50 per tonne on fuels, paired with something called a “Personal Low Carbon Savings Account. ”On the surface, this sounds different than the usual carbon tax proposals we’ve seen over the last decade or so, but is this a new thing? Let’s take a quick break from the usual political wrangling and unpack this “new” idea..."
