Alberta's climate plan part of cabinet decision on new oilsands mine: Wilkinson

Alberta's climate plan part of cabinet decision on new oilsands mine: WilkinsonOTTAWA — Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson says cabinet's decision on a massive new oilsands mine in Alberta will take into consideration what the province is doing to help Canada meet its climate goals.Wilkinson stressed that cabinet has not yet decided whether to green light the proposed $20 billion Teck Frontier mine north of Fort McMurray, Alta.But he says any decision on new projects considers how they fit with Canada's goal to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and provincial efforts to help.Wilkinson notes Alberta is still fighting Ottawa's federal carbon price in court.The federal government was clear in 2016 that when it approved the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, it did so knowing Alberta was imposing a cap on total oilsands emissions and was about to launch a province-wide carbon tax.When Jason Kenney became Alberta premier last year, he kept the emissions cap but immediately scrapped the carbon tax and sued the federal government when it stepped in to impose the federal version in its place.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 28, 2020.The Canadian Press

I'm so excited," she said. "To be honest, I actually get to go to the awards this time because last time I was in Germany on tour and nobody knew what I was talking about when I said that I won a Juno."The Juno Awards take place on Sunday, March 15 in Saskatoon.More P.E.I. news

B.C. man presumed to have coronavirus doing well: health official

B.C. man presumed to have coronavirus doing well: health officialVANCOUVER — Health officials in British Columbia say a man in his 40s is presumed to have coronavirus and is doing well as he recovers at home.Dr. Bonnie Henry, the provincial health officer, said Tuesday the man works regularly in China and lives in the Vancouver area.She told a news conference the man has voluntarily isolated himself since returning to Canada last week and no members of his family have shown any symptoms as they are being monitored by health officials.The government said the man began showing symptoms 24 hours after returning home. The majority of his most recent trip to China was spent in Wuhan, the city at the centre of an outbreak in that country.He contacted a primary health-care provider on Sunday to notify them he had travelled to Wuhan and was experiencing symptoms before coming in for assessment and treatment.The province expects to have tests results from the man's case back from the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg within 48 hours.If confirmed, it would be the first case of coronavirus in B.C. There have been two other presumptive cases in Canada.As officials in Vancouver were speaking, federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu said the risk in Canada is low."It's a sign that the system is working," Hajdu said in Ottawa."When we can confirm cases quickly, when we can actually do the appropriate investigations, that's when we can contain the spread."Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne was scheduled to hold a news conference later today to discuss the government's plans to help Canadians who are stuck in China and unable to leave because of quarantines imposed there. Some of them want Canada to evacuate its citizens from China, as other countries are doing.Champagne said he's been in contact with the Chinese government and is co-ordinating with other countries on the ground "as to what's going on, what's the best way to evacuate citizens."Hajdu said part of the planning involves how to bring back people who may be infected with the virus so that they don't wind up spreading it in Canada."Canada is taking its responsibility very seriously to Canadians but also making sure that we know exactly how to do this and a process that will result in the safety of all Canadians," she said.The B.C. government also said the risk of the virus spreading in the province remains low."All necessary precautions are being taken to prevent the spread of infection," a joint statement from Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix says. "We have multiple systems in place to prepare for, detect and respond, in order to prevent the spread of serious infectious diseases in the province."It says the BC Centre for Disease Control has developed a diagnostic test for the new coronavirus and is working to ensure potential cases can be detected quickly and accurately.China has confirmed more than 4,500 cases of a new form of coronavirus, with at least 106 deaths.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 28, 2020.

No confirmed cases of coronavirus in the territories, but here's how they're preparing

No confirmed cases of coronavirus in the territories, but here's how they're preparingThere are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Yukon, Northwest Territories or Nunavut, but health officials say they're taking precautions and preparing.Last week, the Northwest Territories' chief public health officer said the risk to the territory was low, and that Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver airports are screening travellers who are at risk. In an email Monday afternoon, the N.W.T. Health and Social Services Department said it has sent notifications to front-line staff and has placed screening and information posters in public areas to educate people on symptoms and good hand hygiene. Department spokesperson Damien Healy also said staff are screening people who are symptomatic. This includes asking them questions about their travel history. > The risk of this virus getting into Nunavut is small. \- Michael Patterson, Nunavut chief medical officerStanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife has 24 airborne isolation rooms, but because of current information that the coronavirus is transmitted through droplets, the spokesperson said those rooms may not be needed."In theory, each patient room at Stanton could be used to screen [or] house coronavirus suspected cases," said Healy. "The airborne isolation rooms could be used as an extra layer of precaution if required." Healy said the department is working with the Public Health Agency of Canada. Should the N.W.T. have a lab confirmed case, Healy said the department would notify the public.The coronavirus belongs to a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging in severity from the common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), says the Public Health Agency of Canada. Symptoms of the virus have included fever, cough and difficulty breathing. The infection can cause pneumonia.Canada's first confirmed case, and second presumptive case, were a husband and wife who recently returned to Toronto after travelling to Wuhan, China, the city where the outbreak is believed to have originated.The Chinese government says there are 4,515 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country and that 106 people have died, as of Tuesday morning. Nunavummiut should be aware, not worried: doctorIn Nunavut, Health Department officials started working last week on a precautionary response plan to the coronavirus.   Michael Patterson, the territory's chief medical officer, said Nunavummiut should be aware, but not worried. He said isolation rooms have been identified, along with protective wear for staff, and companies that supply medevac services are aware that more flights could be needed. Medical masks are available at the Qikiqtani General Hospital and at community health centres, Patterson said."The risk of this virus getting into Nunavut is small," he said. "We do have capacity within Iqaluit to expand if needed to keep more patients in the hospital. We also have the capacity to transfer people to the South if they need more advanced or aggressive care than we can provide."According to Patterson, people from Nunavut are more likely to get a different illness while travelling around Canada.Yukon says health-care workers updatedB.C. health officials said Tuesday that they're "confident" a novel coronavirus case has been found in the province.In a news release Tuesday, the Yukon government said there have been no cases of illness caused by the coronavirus in the territory, and the risk to Yukoners remains low. Yukon's Chief Medical Officer Brendan Hanley is working closely with the Public Health Agency of Canada on the latest updates, states the release.The department is also working with Hanley on informing health-care workers with updates, it states.Officials from all three territories are asking people to practice good hygiene by washing their hands, disinfecting surfaces or objects, using a disposable tissue to cough into, and by staying at home if sick.For people who has travelled internationally and are ill with flu-like symptoms, officials are asking them to wear a mask and to call or visit the local health-care centre and alert staff about their travel history.
