A Mississauga factory is using a known carcinogen. Residents had no idea | The Narwhal (thenarwhal.ca)

The drive west along the 401 into Mississauga is lined with factories, box stores, furniture outlets and timber suppliers. It’s an industrial area, but also a commuters’ hub, where people from across the Greater Toronto Area come to gather at mosques, temples and weddings in splashed-out convention centres....

Ontario worried about ‘substantial’ costs to Enbridge Gas in deciding to overrule energy board: docs | The Narwhal (thenarwhal.ca)

When Ontario Energy Minister Todd Smith publically decried an independent regulator’s decision to force a fossil fuel giant to pay for new household gas connections, he argued it would drive up the cost of new homes and delay construction.

Petryshen, who works for the conservation group Wildsight, is on a detective mission of sorts.

What will B.C. do when disaster strikes again? (thenarwhal.ca)

The Brooks home will never be like it was before the 2021 floods in British Columbia. Two years ago, extreme rain filled the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers.

Canada’s wettest province faces historic drought — and a precarious new future (thenarwhal.ca)

I’d asked how his six-hectare Okanagan farm was faring amidst what’s shaping up to be the worst drought in B.C.’s history, expecting an answer that had something to do with water shortage. But Tumbach told me the drought wasn’t hitting his crop so directly; like most farms in the Okanagan, his irrigation water comes from...
