Ontario had exactly the same amount of absolute megawatts derived from coal as we do now and their last plant closes this year. It's a tiny little plant. It's in Thunder Bay which only has 300 megawatts and it's the last one to close and they'll have no more coal-fired power in that province.
Remember when the Conservative government okayed CNOOC Ltd.'s takeover of the Calgary-based energy producer Nexen Inc., despite lots of red flags raised by the Opposition? Well, the state-owned Chinese corporation is back in the news.
Instead of moving closer toward their goal, Alberta Health Services is actually moving farther away from meeting its wait time targets, new numbers show.
Jody MacPherson's insight:
Why worry about this? You're not sick, right???
"Research conducted by the Alberta Liberals and released Thursday shows that wait times in six critical categories have actually gotten longer.
The figures come months after the province was scheduled to release quarterly updates on the state of health wait times in the province.
Researchers scoured through online AHS sources looking into heart bypass surgery, as well as hip, knee, and cataract replacement surgery wait times. None of those numbers came close to meeting targets, said Liberal leader Raj Sherman."

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Geneva-based non-profit organization best known for its Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the Annual Meeting of New Champions in China (Summer Davos) and the Summit on the Global Agenda in Dubai.
Keeping: If we progress to a better, more inclusive and sustained discussion of the oilsands, then we’ll have the opportunity to consider something other than the polarized, false dichotomy of “all or nothing” that is usually forced upon us.
