When we look back on Canada's 150 years, it's important to think about the trailblazers who dared to think and act differently and changed the course of history in the process. From space travel to ci...

Political representatives have given us an ambitious agenda for the next 15 years, but it's up to us all to respond.
We've all taken a walk in nature and experienced the relaxing and often regenerating, healing impact it can have on us, right?
Can you guess who these famous Canadians are?

Around 250 people die each year waiting for an organ transplant.
We cannot spend tens of millions of dollars promoting a low carbon future while also spending tens of millions promoting extractives. With the Agreement in full force, Canada can pivot its approach to international assistance to reflect real policy coherence. We need to support small-scale, decentralized clean energy programs that promote pro-poor, gender sensitive projects.

Canada fell woefully short of 2012 emissions targets and in December 2011 became the only country to pull out of Kyoto, the world's only binding climate treaty. That was in the dark decade of Stephen Harper. Prime Minister Trudeau led a younger, far more optimistic and enlightened entourage to Paris.

The suffering we're witnessing because of loss of land, culture, ways of life and identity may portend what is to come for all of us. Now is the time to come together and decide how we will respond. Let's make sure it's the best humanity has to offer.
With world leaders now meeting in Paris for the UN Climate Change Conference, we're seeing signs of hope for an agreement to limit the escalating effects of global warming. Canadians, especially, have reason to be optimistic about our country's role.

If you want change; be the change. Remember the power of one. If you don't do anything, nothing will change. So do something. Our future depends on it. No act is too small. How will you contribute?

I've never considered myself an environmentalist. Sure, I care about the environment, I sort my garbage and turn off the lights as soon as I leave a room, but an environmentalist? I don't wear clothin...
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?

Over 60 protesters have been arrested opposing Kinder Morgan's new pipeline, including environmental activist David Suzuki's grandson Tamo Campos. Kinder Morgan plans to bore two small holes and then drill 250 metres into the mountain to test whether it can tunnel through the mountain to drastically increase the flow of diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands.
In the aftermath of his grandson's arrest at Burnaby Mountain, environmentalist David Suzuki delivered a scathing speech blasting the RCMP for their treatment of anti-pipeline protesters. "To the RCMP...

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.
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.
I'm booked to play part of the David Suzuki Blue Dot Tour initiative. The Blue Dot Tour is a call to action from the stage. As a musician with a conscience, concern for people, for our planet and for the well-being of my loved ones and of those I do not know as well, I am really looking forward to it.
