New contaminants emerge in the Great Lakes | The Narwhal (thenarwhal.ca)

Rania Hamza calls it “a coincidence” that an engineer, a biologist and a lawyer at the same Toronto university were independently worrying about the harmful substances and chemicals being flushed down Ontario’s toilets.

The healing power of fire (thenarwhal.ca)

Gitanyow Elder Darlene Vegh drips fire onto a patch of dry leaves, moss and twigs on a ridge above Xsit’ax (Kitwanga River) on Wilp Gwaas Hlaam lands in northwest B.C.

After disaster strikes, how much is it worth to rebuild? (thenarwhal.ca)

Some of the most fertile land in southern B.C.’s Fraser Valley is the former lake-bed of Semá:th Xhotsa (Sumas Lake), where water has been held back for a century.

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

But internally, senior officials in Premier Doug Ford’s office noted the decision...
