Public-sector pension plan managers in Canada are being asked to explain their investments in an energy company building a new fossil fuel facility on the West Coast.

The US$310-million liquefied natural gas facility, called Tacoma LNG, is being built at the Port of Tacoma by Puget Sound Energy (PSE), a utility in the state of Washington, and is expected to be completed next year.

Emissions of a potent greenhouse gas from Canada's oilpatch are nearly twice as high as previously thought, says newly published federal research.

The findings on methane from Environment Canada researchers could complicate regulatory attempts to nearly halve releases over the next five years, says an environmental group.

"That target will not be met unless the regulations are significantly strengthened," said Dale Marshall of Environmental Defence.

The RCMP watchdog has uncovered shortcomings with the national force's crowd-control measures, physical searches and collection of social media information while policing anti-fracking protests in New Brunswick.

In a long-awaited report issued Thursday, the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP chastises the Mounties for their reluctance to take action on some of the findings and recommendations.

Wind howls in my ears. My fingers are numb. It’s midnight and I’m on top of Pink Mountain, near Mile 147 of the Alaska Highway in northeastern British Columbia. As I look out into the night, dozens of gas plants light up the horizon. This is fracking country.

It’s the highest-profile success to date of a new initiative aimed at reining in the threat of fossil fuels

On Oct. 15, not long after enduring days of skies choked with U.S. wildfire smoke, Vancouver became the first city in the world to endorse something bold: the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.

It’s the highest-profile success to date of a new initiative aimed at reining in the threat of fossil fuels.
