Excerpts from the article:

The Philippines, one of two Southeast Asian countries that protested being treated like dumpsites by wealthier nations, on Friday shipped 69 containers of what its officials called illegally transported garbage back to Canada.

Administrator Wilma Eisma of Subic Bay freeport said the tons of garbage were loaded overnight on the container ship M/V Bavaria, which left on a 20-day journey to the Canadian port city of Vancouver and ended a "sordid chapter in our history." The Bavaria will stop at a Taiwanese port before heading to Canada, she said.

Environmental activists, including those from Greenpeace and EcoWaste Coalition, welcomed the Bavaria's arrival at Subic Bay, and on Thursday sailed on board a small outrigger with a streamer reading, "Philippines: not a garbage dumping ground!"

Solution: Find out where Harper lives and dump the shit on his front lawn!

In the last three years, David Hutson has beaten both throat and skin cancer.

Now he’s hoping a new form of radiation treatment will help him overcome the prostate cancer he was diagnosed with last September.

Hutson is the first patient in the world to experiment with a new cancer-killing technology called MR-Linac.

Excerpts from the article:

The American embassy in South Korea is facing backlash from the country’s conservative and Christian groups for displaying a Pride flag on its building during Pride celebrations in Seoul.

Harry Harris, the American ambassador to South Korea, captioned photos of the flag on Twitter with the words; “LGBTI rights = Human Rights. USA is committed to defending human rights for all, incl LGBTI persons.”

The embassy has displayed a Pride flag in the past to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community in South Korea, but this year’s flag is much larger and more prominent – which has angered conservative Christian groups.

Excerpts from the article:

He didn't mention Donald Trump by name, but he didn't disappoint them and told them what he thought about all that anyway.

Former U.S. president Barack Obama told a Canadian audience that the world may be a dark place since he left the White House, but its natural upward momentum can be corrected through a positive story of tolerance to counter the "primal" narrative of populism that has taken hold around the world.

"I left the office cautiously optimistic," said Obama, sparking laughter among the 11,400 paying attendees at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa on Friday night.

"I know why you all are laughing."

That was as close as Obama came to confronting the politics of the man who followed him to the White House. Wearing an open-collar white dress shirt and dark grey suit, Obama sat answering questions for about an hour from Tobias Lutke, the founder and CEO of the Ottawa-based commerce company Shopify.

Excerpts from the article:

The thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada constitute a “genocide,” according to a summary of the final report by the national inquiry investigating the issue.

“Genocide is the sum of the social practices, assumptions and actions detailed within the report,” the summary said. “As many witnesses expressed, this country is at war, and Indigenous women, girls…are under siege.”

The final report of the $92-million inquiry, which was launched nearly two and a half years ago by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government, is slated to be released to the public on June 3, but copies of it were leaked on Friday.

Excerpts from the article:

As of Saturday, people caught flying drones that weigh between 250 grams and 25 kilograms without a federal licence could face fines of up to $5,000.

There are two different types of licences now offered by Transport Canada: basic and advanced.

The basic category is meant for people who never fly in controlled airspace or within 30 metres horizontally of bystanders. The basic category requires passing a $10 online exam, registering with Transport Canada, marking the drone with its registration number, and carrying the pilot certificate whenever the drone is in use.

An environmental group says Canada needs to up its game on protecting its oceans.

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society says in a report that while there has been progress in recent years, recommendations from international scientific bodies suggest there's more work to do.

"At least 30 per cent should be protected if we want to ensure all the habitats are protected and that we're securing the future of healthy oceans," Sabine Jessen, director of the group's ocean program, said Monday.

Excerpts from the article:

Canada suspended operations at its embassy in Venezuela on Sunday, saying President Nicolas Maduro's regime is increasingly clamping down on diplomats who oppose his rule.

The diplomats' visas are set to expire at the end of June, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement, and Maduro's regime -- which Canada has denounced as illegitimate and characterized as a dictatorship -- has made it so they cannot be renewed.

"As Venezuela slides deeper into dictatorship, and as Venezuelans continue to suffer at the hands of the illegitimate Maduro regime, the regime has taken steps to limit the ability of foreign embassies to function in Venezuela, particularly those advocating for the restoration of democracy in Venezuela," she said.

Boeing is telling some airlines flying its 737 model to replace a part on the planes' wings, a move that could affect more than 100 aircraft.

Boeing said on Sunday that it is working with federal regulators and contacted airlines about potential problems discovered in one batch of "slat tracks" produced by a supplier. The company said it has identified 21 planes most likely to have the parts in question, and it's advising airlines to check an additional 112 planes. The replacement work should take one to two days after the parts are in hand.

That total does not include the 179 737 Max aircraft that could also have the parts in question. The 737 Max was grounded worldwide following two crashes involving the model.

Excerpts from the article:

No, you aren’t seeing double in the photos below. And that’s what Miss India critics are calling out.

The Miss India beauty pageant is under fire from people calling out its seeming lack of diversity after an image showcasing finalists’ headshots showed only fair-skinned faces with very similar physical characteristics.

The image, which has gone viral, is from a newspaper spread in The Times of India.

Despite India being one of the world’s more ethnically diverse countries in the world, the 30 finalists appear to fit one standard of beauty, critics argued.

Excerpts from the article:

After stalling for two years, the Senate is poised to finally pass a private member's bill that would require judges in Canada to undergo training about sexual assault law, including rape myths and stereotypes about victims and the impact of trauma on memory.

Bill C-337 was introduced by former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose in February 2017 and was passed unanimously by the House of Commons just three months later.

It has languished ever since in the Senate, despite enjoying broad support in principle among the various groups in the upper house.

Earlier this year, Ambrose blamed a "group of old boys" in the Senate for setting up roadblocks to the bill, which will die if not approved by the time Parliament breaks for the summer and the subsequent fall election.

The entire article:

Sir Paul McCartney has heaped praise on an Indigenous version of his classic Beatles song “Blackbird.”

The former Beatle told the audience at one of his recent concerts to watch the video on YouTube.

Grade 10 student Emma Stevens became a viral hit in April singing the song entirely in Mi’kmaq—a language spoken by fewer than 10,000 people.

“There’s an incredible version a Canadian girl’s done, you can see it on YouTube, it’s in her native language… it’s really cool check it out,” McCartney said in a concert clip posted to Twitter.

The 16-year-old music student at Allison Bernard Memorial High School in Eskasoni, N.S., hopes the song will raise awareness of the dying language.

The video accompanying Stevens’ song has been viewed more than 417,000 times on YouTube.

“Blackbird” appeared on the 1968 double album “The Beatles,” commonly referred to as the “White Album.”

McCartney has suggested in interviews that “Blackbird” was inspired by the black civil rights movement.

Excerpts from the article:

An analysis of Canada's plastic industry shows the industry producing plastic dwarfs the industry trying to recycle it.

The report, completed by consulting firms Deloitte and ChemInfo Services, was commissioned by Environment and Climate Change Canada to guide its plan to cut the country's plastics waste to zero.

It found the plastics-manufacturing industry is a significant economic driver in Canada, worth $35 billion in sales of resins and plastic manufactured goods in 2017, and supporting about 93,000 jobs across more than 1,900 companies.

Newly unsealed documents from the FBI show that federal investigators took a Bigfoot report seriously more than 40 years ago.

The 22-page report, now online, proves that the FBI made an exception to its policy and tested a mysterious hair and tissue sample back in the 1970s.

The sample was submitted by Peter Byrne, director of the Bigfoot Information Center and Exhibition. Byrne wrote a letter asking the agency to inspect a sample of 15 hairs and a tiny skin sample “which we feel may be of importance.”

Excerpts from the article:

Niels Hoegel liked to bring about cardiac arrests in his patients by injecting them with overdoses of heart medication and other drugs because he enjoyed the feeling of being able to resuscitate them. Sometimes he succeeded in bringing them back, but in at least 87 cases they died, making him what is believed to be modern Germany's most prolific serial killer.

A court in the northwestern city of Oldenburg on Thursday found the 42-year-old nurse guilty of murdering 85 patients, aged 34 to 96, and sentenced him to life in prison. He had earlier been convicted of two other killings.

"Your guilt is incomprehensible," presiding judge Sebastian Buerhmann said as he handed down the verdict. "I felt like an accountant of death."

An Indiana school district has apologized after an 11-year-old boy with autism was given the “most annoying male” award by his teacher.

Estella Castejon, who says her son Akalis is non-verbal and occasionally rocks back and forth and shakes, believes his special education teacher at Bailly Preparatory Academy should be familiar with his condition and its effects.

“You’d think one would know and understand the conditions of autism and have more patience to deal with children who suffer from autism,” she told local television station WLS-TV from her home in Gary, Ind. on Tuesday.

WTF! amh.

Excerpts from the article:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is hailing D-Day fighters who sacrificed their lives 75 years ago on the beaches of Normandy for future generations, "for you and me."

Speaking Thursday where 14,000 Canadians landed on June 6, 1944, Trudeau said they "took a gamble the world had never seen before." Thousands never made it home, many killed that very first day of the allied battle against the Nazis for Normandy.

He lauded the resulting world order including the United Nations and NATO that have helped ensure peace since World War II.

Justin and Lawrence, both of you have to ensure that the veterans, past and present, are well supported, during and after their service. (see above story)

Don't worry about what the idiotic conservative Harper government didn't do, make sure that the support happens on your watch!

Continuing story:

Excerpts from the article:

Police in London, U.K. say they have arrested a fifth suspect after two women said they were beaten by a group of males on a city bus for refusing to kiss in front of them.

In a statement on Saturday, Metropolitan Police said they arrested a 16-year-old boy earlier that morning on suspicion of robbery and aggravated grievous bodily harm. Four other teenagers between the ages of 15 and 18 were arrested the day before in connection with the same attack. Those males remain in custody at a separate police station in London, according to the statement.

Earlier this week, Melania Geymonat described the incident in a detailed Facebook post. She said she and her girlfriend Chris boarded the upper level of a double-decker bus in the early hours of May 30 in London’s West Hampstead neighbourhood.

A Manitoba First Nation that was cut off from the mainland so that Winnipeg could have clean drinking water finally has a new road connecting them to the rest of the province.

The 24-kilometre stretch of gravel nicknamed the “Freedom Road” will also make it easier for those living at Shoal Lake 40 First Nation to access clean tap water of their own.

Minister of Indigenous Services Seamus O’Regan spoke at a ceremony marking the opening of the link to the Trans-Canada Highway and reiterated the government’s commitment to build a new water treatment facility, which could finally end a decades-old boil water advisory.

An 11-year-old Montreal boy has developed a video game aimed at reducing stigma and educating his peers about mental health, an initiative his mother says has helped him navigate the loss of his father.

The game, built inside popular gaming platform Roblox, allows users to navigate their characters through the journey of depression.

Jumping over gray blocks that represent depression, users are presented with different facts and figures about mental health, including messages like “depression is a disease; it is not a person’s fault.”

People with undetected diabetes run a higher risk of both heart attack and gum disease, a Swedish study finds.

The study, published in the Diabetes Care journal by Swedish researchers at the Karolinska Institutet, used 805 heart attack patients from 17 Swedish cardiology clinics and a control group of 805 people, who were then matched by age, sex and postal code.

The study participants gum health was assessed by x-rays and their glucose levels were tested through a blood sugar test.

Excerpts from the article:

Hong Kong's leader signalled Monday that her government will push ahead with controversial amendments to extradition laws despite a massive protest against them that underscored fears about mainland China's broadening footprint in the semi-autonomous territory.

In what was likely Hong Kong's largest protest in more than a decade, hundreds of thousands of people shut down the heart of the skyscraper-studded city on Sunday, three days before the Legislative Council is slated to take up the bill.

The demonstrations refocused attention on the former British colony, whose residents have long bristled at what many see as efforts by Beijing to tighten control, and dominated newspaper front pages in a city that allows far more freedom of expression than other parts of China.

Canada is taking aim at banning single-use plastics as early as 2021 and will require plastics manufacturers and companies using plastic packaging to be responsible for the collection and recycling of the materials.

The government did not announce specific products that will be outlawed, saying it will examine scientific evidence to identify the most harmful plastics.

Making the announcement in in front of a scenic lake in Mont-Saint-Hillaire, Que., about 50 minutes southeast of Montreal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said whales, birds and fish should not be dying from the plastic they’ve ingested.

Actor Jussie Smollett broke his social media silence Monday, posting to Instagram for the first time since claiming he had been the victim of a homophobic attack, a claim later refuted by police.

The post featured a video of playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney speaking at Sunday night’s Tony Awards.

“The bodies that uphold the great legacy of spirituals are often black and queer. When will we love them for who they are, not just what they can do,” McCraney said in his speech, before a performance from his Broadway play “Choir Boy.”

A Calgary woman earned herself front row seats to an animal kingdom-style parenting lesson earlier this week.

Brenda Anderson told CTV News Calgary that she spotted a mother bobcat carrying kittens in her neighbourhood, moving them from one neighbour’s yard to another.

In the video, the bobcat can be seen carrying a kitten from a backyard garden, down a flight of stairs and across the street.

Anderson said the area is close to Nose Hill Park, a large natural environment park where the animals may be headed next.

Excerpts from the article:

Scientists are predicting a near-record Gulf of Mexico "dead zone" where the water holds too little oxygen to sustain marine life.

"A major factor contributing to the large dead zone this year is the abnormally high amount of spring rainfall in many parts of the Mississippi River watershed," the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a news release Monday. That led to record amounts of water carrying large amounts of fertilizer and other nutrients downriver, it said.

The nutrients feed algae, which die and then decompose on the sea floor, using up oxygen from the bottom up in an area along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas.

A new study out of McMaster University suggests the physical activity of children as young as three can have an impact on their heart health later in life.

The study, published Tuesday in the journal Pediatrics and funded through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, examined the heart health of 400 children between the ages of three and five to determine whether physical activity has an impact on their cardiovascular health.

Over the course of three years, the researchers had the children occasionally run on a treadmill while they were tested for three markers of heart health: cardiovascular fitness, arterial stiffness and blood pressure.

Members of Parliament will begin debating the new NAFTA implementation bill in the House of Commons on Tuesday.

Bill C-100, the "Canada United States Mexico Agreement Implementation Act" was tabled on May 29 by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. This is the first time the legislation is coming up for debate since then, which has prompted some questions about the likelihood it’ll be able to pass through the House and Senate before Parliament is scheduled to adjourn at the end of the month.

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine says he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

The singer and guitarist of the heavy metal band announced the news on social media Monday, writing that he's "working closely with my doctors, and we've mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun."

The 57-year-old says as a result, Megadeth has to cancel "most shows this year," though the 2019 Megacruise will happen "and the band will be a part of it in some form."

Get better soon, Dave!

Hong Kong's embattled leader apologized Tuesday for an unpopular extradition bill that drew massive protests and indicated it will not be revived during the current legislative session.

But Chief Executive Carrie Lam did not formally retract the legislation, which would allow some suspects to face trial in mainland Chinese courts. She also said she hopes to finish her term, shrugging off calls for her resignation with repeated requests for another chance.

"Work in the next three years will be difficult, but we will work to rebuild confidence in the ... government. We have a lot to do," she said.

A state news agency reports China will halt imports from a Canadian company after food safety issues were detected in one batch of pork.

The move will likely fuel speculation that China is retaliating against Canada for arresting a Chinese tech executive.

After Canada arrested Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou (MUNG wan-JOH') in December at the request of the U-S, China has arrested two Canadians, suspended the permits of two other Canadian pork importers and halted all new purchases of Canadian canola seeds.

Excerpts from the article:

Danish researchers further exposed the effects of climate change, after snapping a startling photo as their team were travelling over melted sea ice sheet to retrieve weather equipment.

In the image, shot by Steffen M. Olsen from the Centre of Ocean and Ice at the Danish Meteorological Institute, the team’s sled dogs appear to be running on water.

The climate researcher was part of the institute’s team that was making its way across a partially melted fjord -- a narrow inlet with steep sides created by a glacier – in a journey made more hazardous by the rapidly melting sea ice.

Excerpts from the article:

The House of Commons has passed a motion declaring a national climate emergency, and supporting Canada’s commitment to meet the Paris Agreement emissions targets.

Conservative MPs voted against the motion, but it still passed 186-63 with the support of the Liberals, New Democrats, Bloc Quebecois and Green MPs. The motion was was put forward by Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna.

The motion describes climate change as a "real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity," notes how it is impacting Canadians, and states the need to pursue clean growth methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Good!

^ From the article:
It's a nice thought, but scumbags like Alex Jones don't give a crap about that.
