Metals in Mallards (pooled 2013 collections)

Adult male mallards were collected in 2013 in the area surrounding five Alberta communities south of the Athabasca oil sands industrial region (Mayerthorpe, Barrhead, Lac La Biche, St. Paul and Vermilion) and from two communities north of the development area (Fort Chipewyan, Alberta and Fort Resolution, NWT). Liver samples from the mallards were analysed for chemicals of concern. While metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were often present in the livers of mallards, no obvious spatial patterns were detected. The observed concentrations are not likely posing a risk to these mallard populations.

Canada's National Forest Inventory (NFI) sampling program is designed to support reporting on forests at the national scale. On the other hand, continuous maps of forest attributes are required to support strategic analyses of regional policy and management issues. We have therefore produced maps covering 4.03 × 106 km2 of inventoried forest area for the 2001 base year using standardised observations from the NFI photo plots (PP) as reference data. We used the k nearest neighbours (kNN) method with 26 geospatial data layers including MODIS spectral data and climatic and topographic variables to produce maps of 127 forest attributes at a 250 × 250 m resolution.

The Minister of Justice prepares a "Charter Statement" to help inform the public and Parliamentary debate on a government bill. One of the Minister of Justice's most important responsibilities is to examine legislation for consistency with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms ["The Charter"]. By tabling a Charter Statement, the Minister is sharing some of the key considerations that informed the review of a bill for consistency with the Charter. A Statement identifies charter rights and freedoms that may potentially be engaged by a bill and provides a brief explanation of the nature of any engagement, in light of the measures being proposed.

On July 6, 2013, a 72-car train carrying 100 tonnes of crude oil each exploded in Lac-Mégantic. Images of the Pleiades and KompSat 3A satellites were acquired in order to follow the field work of the recovery phase. These 50 cm resolution optical images were acquired for the following dates: July 13, July 29, August 2, August 15, August 24, September 6, September 17, September 30, 2013, November 4, 2013, July 2, 2014, October 12, 2014, November 3, 2014 and October 19, 2015, April 24, 2016 and May 5, 2017. Purpose: These optical images of the Pléiades-1A or Pleiades-1B or KompSat 3A satellites allow us to see the progress of the recovery work in downtown Lac-Mégantic, near the site of the accident that occurred on July 6, 2013. These images were also used in the realization of a rapid information products and services (RAPS/RIPS) project of the Canadian Space Agency in collaboration with the Department of Public Safety, Public Safety Canada and MDA**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**
