  • Province rolls back speed limits on 570 km of highway

    The British Columbia government is lowering speed limits on 15 sections of highway in the province to keep people safer and reduce the chance of speed-related collisions.

    "We know people want to get where they’re going quickly. Our job is to help make sure they also get there safely,” said Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “Since the former government raised speed limits in 2014, serious crashes have been on the rise. By rolling back speed limits slightly, our goal is to reduce accidents, keep roads open and protect the lives of British Columbians.”

  • Top Scientists, Writers And Academics Sign Open Letter Backing Nuclear To Tackle Climate Change

    A distinguished and prominent group of Canadians and international men and women today released the text of an Open Letter to Canadians they will publish later this week in support of urgent action to reduce carbon emissions, including the need for next-generation nuclear technology to be part of the mix.

    "Despite a vocal but dwindling 'anti-nuke' contingent stuck in last century's political battles," said David Schumacher, a signatory of the letter and organizer of the initiative, "these innovative nuclear power efforts deserve the support of government, industry, and all Canadians. Without nuclear it is going to be impossible to tackle climate change, so everyone has a stake in the success of these efforts."

    Mr. Schumacher is an Emmy-winning Canadian filmmaker, whose documentary, "The New Fire," makes the case for next-generation nuclear to battle climate change.
