Why Plus-Size Running is a Global Media Sensation

Louise Green | August 1, 2015 | Canada Living
We keep women of size behind a curtain like she doesn't exist or matter when the reality is she is athletic, fashion-conscious, and pop-culture savvy with incredible buying power.

Goodbye Fassbender, Hello LNG Advocate?

This cabinet shuffle shows clear signs of Christy Clark trying to further tie our children's education and future to LNG.

An Active Getaway a Short Drive From Vancouver

Vitamin Daily | July 30, 2015 | Canada Travel
Cocktails on the beach are nice but, at times, we prefer a more active holiday -- something that beautiful Squamish, B.C., delivers in spades. With our gear securely loaded into our Chevy Colorado, we recently made the one-hour drive from Vancouver to Canada's outdoor adventure capital for some serious physical fun.

Elizabeth May's Exclusion From Debates an Affront to Democracy

Capt. Trevor Greene | July 29, 2015 | Canada Politics
Elizabeth May has been at the forefront of debate ever since she was elected. There are now two elected Green Party MPs and the party is again fielding candidates from coast to coast to coast. Her exclusion from the leaders debates amounts to an outrageous affront to democracy.

Rouge Park Deserves the Same Protection as Other Canadian Parks

David Suzuki | July 29, 2015 | Canada Impact
Canadians love parks and protected areas and visit them often, especially this time of year. These natural areas protect our country's biological richness and offer Canadians and visitors alike places for respite, solitude in nature and the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of time spent outdoors. We owe it to all to ensure that our parks, including Rouge National Urban Park, are supported with strong laws and policies.

Living The Imperfect Vancouver Dream Is Perfect For Me

Ashley D. MacKenzie | July 29, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
No, it's not cheap to live here. And yes, we could have bought a house in the suburbs for the same cost as our condo, but that's the thing -- we don't want a house. We don't want extra square footage that we're going to fill with things we never use. We just want to live the life that feels right for us.

All Parents Should Send Their Kids to Summer Camp

Samantha Pinter-Thompson | July 29, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
Because camp isn't just a place, it's a state of mind.

At This Whistler Golf Course, Nature Is the Champion

Adrian Brijbassi | July 27, 2015 | Canada Travel
A sensitivity for the environment was a reason the Chateau Whistler launched a new product this summer, the Clubhouse Dinner and Nature Tour. The idea is for couples and families to learn about the flora, fauna and wildlife occupying the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course that was opened in 1993.

Are Millennials Actually Lazy?

Ramesh Ranjan | July 26, 2015 | Canada Living
As a millennial myself, I've heard that common charge of our generation being "lazy" and I think this viewpoint is worth a deeper look, as I feel millennials have had to endure as much direct and intense criticism as generations past have.

The Inside Story Behind A Remarkable Orca Rescue

WWF-Canada | July 27, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
As we motored in closer, the first thing I heard was the heart-wrenching sound of an orca that was clearly in distress. Her vocalizations echoed across the small bay, an alarming deep and rounded cry that flattened into a squealing moan.

We Can Still Save Killer Whales

Chris Genovali | July 27, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
If we want to save more than memories of southern resident killer whales, we have to act now. This might include restricting the numbers and routes of vessels that travel through their critical habitat and cleaning up polluted waters while preventing additional contamination from new pollutants.

I'm Living The Vancouver Dream By Moving Away

Michael Stewart | July 27, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
It is a powerful dream. Despite my cynicism, I love Vancouver and its natives who rail against the "No Fun City" label with all their might. I have always fantasized that I would raise my children in a place where different cultures and personality types butt up against each other, where difference is a way of life and not cause for alarm.

I Love Being A B.C. Teacher So Much That I Have To Quit

Cecelia Griffiths | July 24, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
Things are worse. They are so much worse. I cannot express how bad things are getting. It's because I love the work so much, that I have to leave. I've spent the last two years thinking about going. I've felt increasingly sorrowful that I simply cannot do all that these kids need and deserve me to do.

I'm Proud Of The Vancouver Pride Society For Demanding Something More Meaningful For Parade

Robin Perelle | July 24, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
It's not as if this particular pledge -- to support equal rights for trans people in federal and provincial legislation -- presents too onerous a moral stretch. At least it shouldn't if you're planning to walk in a parade celebrating lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender people.

This Is the Way to Beat AIDS

Dr. Julio Montaner | July 23, 2015 | Canada Impact
Treatment as prevention and it's related 90-90-90 target are the unequivocal, evidence-based path to ending the AIDS pandemic, the biggest health challenge of the last generation. As we close the 2015 IAS AIDS Conference in Vancouver, we call on the leaders of the world to join us to end the AIDS pandemic. The scientific evidence is all in, the UN 90-90-90 target is the only way forward. There is nowhere to hide. You are either with us or against us! We demand you deliver on the promise of an AIDS-free generation by fully embracing and funding the UN 90-90-90 target, domestically and internationally.

Our Demand For Renewable Energy Comes With Canada's Dirty Little Secret

Blair King | July 22, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
Asking lesser developed countries to deal with the negative consequences of the mining and refining of rare earths is the ultimate in hypocrisy. We ask for clean technologies but refuse to get our hands dirty in the process.

Best eaten right away, but can also be put into an airtight container and frozen.

Nexen Pipeline Spill Highlights Critical Flaw In Premiers' Energy Strategy

Ecojustice | July 22, 2015 | Canada Alberta
A week after the spill was first reported, Nexen still does not know what caused the pipeline to rupture or when it might have started to leak. The pipeline may have been leaking for hours or even days before a problem was finally detected. Clearly, when it comes to pipelines, new does not necessarily mean better -- or even safer.
