It's Time for a Tough Conversation About Economic Growth

Peter Victor | Posted 09.30.2015 | Canada Business

As an economist who has focused on environmental challenges, I've long recognized that in my field it often takes a major crisis before cherished but unsatisfactory theories finally give way to new thinking. So it is with how economists think about growth and the environment. The tragic irony is that all this growth in the past few decades has done little to improve happiness in the 'developed' world. Meanwhile, their growing economies consume the ecological space desperately needed by poorer countries where growth still promises real gains in well-being.

From climbing trees to slouching over desks -- the transition from summer sovereignty to school routines hasn't been all that easy in my household. So, the big question I have is -- how can we strike a balance between school routines and spending time outdoors?

Canada's Right to a Healthy Environment Must Be Part of the Charter

Ecojustice | Posted 12.13.2014 | Canada Impact

The Charter is Canada's highest law and it applies to all levels of government across the country. It gives each of us inalienable rights -- ones that protect us from discrimination and guarantee our right to life, liberty and security of the person. We believe the Charter should include environmental rights too.

Let's Slow Down, for the Sake of Ourselves and Our Planet

David Suzuki | Posted 12.08.2014 | Canada
David Suzuki

We've become impatient. We're so demanding that we're unwilling to slow down and ensure our major projects are sustainable for human society and the biosphere. Over the past century, we've burned increasing amounts of finite fossil fuels that were stored and compressed over millions of years, exacerbating conditions that lead to climate chaos.

The Hard Truths About Public Transit in Canada

Murtaza Haider | Posted 08.30.2014 | Canada Politics
Murtaza Haider

Some transit experts argue that commute times by high-speed rail transit are shorter. It is true for individual trips, but not for the entire communities. Commuters in transit-dependent communities, with ready access to subways, can take faster transit to their destinations, however shorter duration trips are enjoyed only by those whose trip lengths are shorter. With $29 billion in transport infrastructure spending already earmarked for Ontario, Steven Del Duca and Kathleen Wynne, will receive tons of unsolicited advice. They should, however, base their investment decisions on sound analysis rather than conjecture.

Let's Make Sure 2014 Isn't an "Annus Horribilis"

David Suzuki | Posted 02.10.2014 | Canada Impact

It's been a strange year. From the never-ending carnival of calamity at Toronto City Hall to the scandalous subterfuge on Parliament Hill, from horrific attacks by the Syrian government on its own citizenry to disasters inflicted by extreme weather on the people of the Philippines, 2013 recalls Queen Elizabeth's description of 1992 as an annus horribilis. On top of it all, those of us who have taken on the often thankless task of trying to encourage people to care for the air, water, soil and diversity of plants and animals that keep us alive came under increasingly vituperative attacks from the media and even our own government.
