Humpback Whales Are No Longer "Threatened" and it Has Nothing to Do With Pipelines

When the announcement was made that humpback whales would no longer be protected as a "threatened" species in Canada, the public was furious.

Our government has a lot to answer for in the area of environmental management, but the outcry in this case is misguided.
