Derelict Vessels Are Polluting The B.C. Coastline
Huffington Post - about 3 years
For decades, mayors, councillors, trustees and regional directors have passed resolutions at the UBCM asking for senior governments to take care of the derelict & abandoned vessels, illegal mooring buoys and human waste dumping that pollute their local shorelines. Unfortunately, senior governments have ignored this marine pollution and left cleanup to the local government and regional districts to coordinate, manage and in many cases, finance. The Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan pipeline proposals plan to significantly increase heavy oil tankers to Asia and both governments have promised "world-class" oil spill response on land and in the water. British Columbians are skeptical about this commitment. Stories like the sinking tug near Squamish are regularly in and out of the media reminding folks that nothing has been done. There is nothing "world-class" about the provincial-federal response to marine-based environmental concerns in the past. A workshop at the 2010 UBCM d ...

Annual Gathering Helps Preserve Native Language for Okla. Students
Education Week - over 4 years
Many of the Native American languages found in Oklahoma are endangered, but a unique program just celebrated its 10th anniversary of trying to preserve and nourish that heritage. The Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair began in April 2003 at the University of Oklahoma's Sam Noble Museum in Norman, Okla. Three people—elder and teacher Geneva Navarro (Comanche), Indian educator Quinton Roman Nose (Cheyenne), and the Sam Noble Museum's Native American Languages curator Mary Linn—wanted to find a way to recognize the state's students and teachers of Native languages. They conceived the idea for the fair, and the first year attracted about 200 students and teachers who did spoken language performances, songs with dance, and poster art. Since then, it's grown to take place over two days with more than three times as many attendees and six additional categories. It's one of the few times outside of schools that some students are able to use their Native languages. ...

    More Details Hide Details Lunn fired Linda Keen, the head of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, on January 15, 2008. Keen, who was due to appear before a parliamentary committee the next day, had ordered a shutdown of the NRU reactor at Chalk River, Ontario, which is operated by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, in November 2007 over the AECL's failure to perform safety upgrades. Appearing before a parliamentary committee January 16, 2008 Lunn refused to cite one example of what Linda Keen had done wrong in her job, only that she had lost the confidence of the government. "These are the kinds of Republican tactics this town has never seen before," Liberal MP David McGuinty (Ottawa South) told the natural resources committee. "The Prime Minister and the people around the Prime Minister will stop at nothing.... They will fabricate, in my mind, a case to dismiss a senior official, an independent regulator," McGuinty told reporters later. Lunn told the committee: "We do not believe she fulfilled her duties. There was an urgency to this situation, make no mistake... it would have meant life and death for some patients."
    In the federal election of 2006, he won re-election against Liberal Candidate Sheila Orr and NDP candidate Jennifer Burgis.
