Indigenous Woman’s Human Rights Case Gets Second Wind

by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, First Reference Inc. Systemic racism can easily fuel discriminatory conduct, but it is notoriously hard to prove. In Ledger v Alberta Health Services and Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, 2021 AHRC 95, the Human Rights Tribunal of Alberta decided that an Indigenous woman’s case was dismissed too soon and should have instead gone to a full hearing. The decision provides a helpful overview of the law on discrimination, the interplay between race and chang...

How to combat vaccine hesitancy? Stop censoring experts...

I don't consider myself vaccine hesitant, because I have had them all.  Looking at my immunization record book I see that I've had: Polio, MMR, dTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Meningitis, and while it's not listed I know I've also taken a shot for Tetanus.The big one lacking of course is the Covid shot, or shots I guess.  Why not?  There are a number of reasons actually.  Firstly I've never been worried about this Covid bug, like a large segment of the population (many of whom have rolled up the...

Alberta invests C$4.7M in Lethbridge biodiesel project

You Can’t Make Me Get Vaccinated…Can You?

While there have always been “vaccine deniers”, or parents refusing to get their children mandatory vaccinations, I don’t think we’ve seen the degree of vehement objection as we have the protests against the Covid-19 vaccines. Yet vaccines have been proved to be the most effective way to bring the coronavirus under control. While there have been “breakthrough” cases of vaccinated people, most recent hospitalizations and deaths have been of unvaccinated people. And so the issue now is, “how about...

Abbott Ridge Trail in Glacier National Park BC

The Abbott Ridge Trail in British Columbia’s Glacier National Park (often confused with Montana’s national park that goes by the same name) is the must do hike in the park despite its length and significant elevation gain. After hiking the Hermit Trail in the park a few years ago, I had an inkling I’d be in for a treat. Abbott Ridge is named for Henry Abbott, a mountain and railway man who helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Abbott Ridge hike in the rugged Columbia Mountains isn’t...

It teased a raft of alluring riding opportunities and recreational activities: Meeting and riding with the Revzilla team personalities Spurgeon Dunbar, Jen Dunstan, and Brandon Wise, among others.

For this last week: 1. Pourshian v. Walt Disney Company, 2021 ONSC 4840 (CanLII) [48] In my view, these are pleading issues that are not properly addressed on a jurisdiction motion.

HBO is Spending ‘Game of Thrones’ Money on That ‘The Last of Us’ TV Series

HBO’s The Last of Us has started production in Alberta, and according to the head of one the unions there, each of the 10 episodes will cost at least tens of millions of dollars. HBO is clearly hoping that The Last of Us will fill that Game of Thrones hole in the premium channel’s lineup. It’s based on Naughty Dog’s popular video game of the same name and takes place in the near future. This near fu...

Eiffel Lake Hike in Banff National Park

The Eiffel Lake hike in Banff National Park is one fantastic outing with only one downside – it’s hard to score a parking space at the Moraine Lake trailhead though fortunately there are ways to mitigate that described below. There is nothing difficult about the Eiffel Lake hike. There are no route-finding issues and the 11.2 km return distance and 400 m elevation gain are well within reach of any regular hiker.  Despite the fact this is what I would call a moderate hike, I did it with Joel Ha...

Piper Pass Hike – A Gorgeous Trail in Kananaskis

The Piper Pass hike in Kananaskis Country’s Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park is fantastic. It exceeded all expectations in that it was easier and more beautiful than I thought it would be – and it was devoid of people. It’s one of a number of hikes you can do from the Elbow Pass Day-Use area and I think it’s the prettiest of the lot. You can do it as a long day hike from Highway 40 – or as a shorter day hike from the Tombstone Campground which is what we did as part of a multi-night stay. ...

Tombstone Lakes Hike & Camping Trip in Kananaskis

Alberta’s Kananaskis Country offers an incredible diversity of hiking experiences that are almost on par with what you’ll find in the Rocky Mountain national parks – specifically Banff, Jasper, Yoho, and Kootenay. Many  of the trails are busier than they used to be – probably because so many people have discovered the joys of hiking thanks to COVID. But you can still lose the masses if you choose a hike that’s a little longer. The Tombstone Lakes hike in Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park is j...

Horseback Riding in Banff: Trail Riders Experience

Horseback riding is not really my thing. I’ve been petrified of horses since my horse-crazy mother put me on a pony when I was five. And it’s not for lack of trying. I have been on trail rides all over Canada – from PEI to Ontario and Alberta. I even gamely hopped on a horse in Costa Rica and splashed through rivers and held on for dear life as we climbed up and down muddy mountains for literally hours. But despite all my time on a horse, I remain unskilled and know any horse I ride smells my fe...

Stanford research shows muskrats are a bellwether for a drying delta

Downstream of hydroelectric dams and Alberta's oil sands, one of the world's largest freshwater deltas is drying out. New Stanford University research suggests long-term drying is making it harder for muskrats to recover from massive die-offs. It's a sign of threats to come for many other species.

Kananaskis Kayaking to the Point Campground

For anyone eager to get out on a lake or reservoir in Alberta, you’ll find Upper Kananaskis Lake to be a great choice. It sports a scenic mountain backdrop with one downside – it’s often windy and it can blow up quickly, so paddling is best done early or late in the day when possible. The lake is located in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, approximately a 90-minute drive from Calgary. John and I enjoyed a 2-day Kananaskis kayaking trip mid-week. We had our own kayaks which made life easier, but...
