Outside the box: Reclaiming our streets as places to live, not just drive

Sun, 2015-03-22 21:17

The Ottawa Citizen | Mar 12, 2015

by: Avi Freidman

Are asphalt roads and sidewalks in neighbourhoods really needed? Of course they are, you might say. Otherwise, where else will people walk and how will drivers reach their garages? But let’s look at the wisdom of having roads and sidewalks in their current form.

As we rethink our future neighbourhoods and fix existing ones, we may want to take a hard look at our streets and reclaim them. After all, it is we who pay for their costly construction and neverending upkeep.

Complete shift to renewable energy within Canada’s reach, academics say

Sun, 2015-03-22 21:04

The Globe and Mail | March 18, 2015

Canada could shift entirely to renewable sources of electricity by 2035 and eliminate 80 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, says a group of Canadian academics that is aiming to spur government action on climate change.

To get there, they recommend a national carbon-pricing plan, and greater effort to move electricity produced from low-carbon sources such as hydro dams across provincial borders.
