Health and the Environment belong in the Same Box: Why Health Impact Assessments belong in Environmental Assessments

Published Tue, 3 Jan 2017 06:04:27 EST Read More

Op-Ed by: Dr. Courtney Howard, Dr. Trevor Hancock, Robert Rattle Perhaps because we mostly work inside boxes - hospitals, clinics, universities and office buildings - it has taken the world’s health community far too long to realize that human health belongs in the same box as what we call “the environment.” These ideas have been part of other thought systems, including Aboriginal concepts of wellness, for generations - but until recently they have been largely neglected within Wes......

Op-Ed By Gideon Forman and Beatrice Olivastri Back in November, the Ontario government signaled its intention to reduce the use of “neonic” pesticides on corn and soy seed by 80% by 2017. A prime motivator for the proposal was a new analysis from the Task Force on Systemic Pesticides--a group of 29 independent scientists from around the world--who examined 800 scientific papers and concluded neonics “pose a serious risk of harm to honeybees and other poll......

Op-Ed: “Neonic” Pesticide Ban Vital for Bee Health --and Our Own

Published Wed, 8 Oct 2014 05:01:34 EST Read More

By Gideon Forman, Caroline Schultz, and Faisal Moola In a few short days many of us will gather among family and friends for a thanksgiving feast, and as we thank our hard-working farmers we must not forget about their petite partners in food production -- honey bees and other pollinators! But these vital creatures are now in peril, threatened by a new class of pesticides called “neonicotinoids” (“neonics”) which are used on over 95% of corn seed and 55% of so......

Op-Ed: Time for Ontario to seize far-offshore wind opportunities in the Great Lakes

Published Tue, 16 Sep 2014 05:25:12 EST Read More

Over three and a half years ago, a cancellation, publicly referred to as a moratorium, on offshore wind was announced. The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) is perplexed by the lack of action in advancing a far-offshore wind sector in Ontario. The original February 2011 decision was made ostensibly to allow time to conduct more studies. Almost nothing has happened since this announcement. Ontario should be applauded for eliminating coal generation in a timely manner, ...... Click here to read this release

Premier Could Ease her Frustration Over GHGs by Phasing-out Coal

Published Tue, 21 Jan 2014 05:21:52 EST Read More

By Dr. Joe Vipond, Dr. Raquel Feroe, and Gideon Forman In a recent interview, Premier Alison Redford expressed frustration with Ottawa’s foot-dragging on the GHG-regulation file. She has good reason to feel this way because the federal government has shown an appalling lack of political will (to put it mildly) on climate-change abatement. But now there’s a way for the Premier to make significant progress on climate protection, improve Albertans’ well-being, and boo...... Click here to read this release
