More than 100 people protested outside a mining convention Sunday in downtown Toronto, where they blocked traffic on multiple roads and stood in front of entrances to the event.

Organizers said they were demonstrating against the harmful effects of resource extraction to the environment and to Indigenous lands.

At one point, protesters attempted to enter the convention but were stopped by police.

Our conversation with the renowned botanist turns to fire, money and manual work.

It is bright and frozen beyond the walls of Diana Beresford-Kroeger’s cozy home this winter’s day in the farm country of southeastern Ontario. We are sipping tea and discussing best-laid plans gone up in flames.

Sources close to the project confirmed to CBC News the application was withdrawn.
