shouldn't you have a hot topics section on the open maps home page? such as covid 19 so people don't have to go endlessly looking for stuff. There is no real thematic or AOI search features with this map, why not? search capability is important - to search for stuff via time, space, theme... sometimes the simple search ends up having too much stuff. And, what if a result requires a further refined search, then what? and, why are there no hot spot maps of the covid 19 with 20km radius hot spots outlined so people know where this thing is growing potentially then take necessary precautions based on risk and probability. We can't shut down the whole country again, we'll go bankrupt if that occurs again!!! thus this is a risk and probability exercise, a good heat map is required with 10-20km hot spots as not to disclose exact location. Some cities have been using postal codes and listing the cases in postal codes, which may be sufficient? give people info so they can access the risks and probabilities in an area of interest. Better search mechanism is required, this site displays too much info... need better filters. And, what about time series as well - so one can easily view space and time over a period of interest.

Ecocide acts
Environment and Climate Change Canada
Votes: 892
Recognizing extensive damage of our environment, the web of life as ecocide is being debated at international forum, at the World Congress on Justice Law and Governance for Environmental Sustainability in Jun 2012 and at the UN Food and Agriculture Headquarters in Oct 2012 in and in repeated correspondence to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. What threat does extensive damage to the web of life pose to national security. What duty does the Government of Canada have to protect Canadians from those permitting through inadequate legislation or through the subsequent conduct by corporate leaders and individuals ? Was the decimation of plains Buffalo ecocide? Is failing to implement recovery programs for endangered species ecocide? Is the plundering of sharks for soup ecocide? Is the human, toxic, ecological and carbon footprint of the tarsands sustainable, ethical, ecocide? Was the sabotage of the electric vehicle in California by the CEO and Board of Directors of GM in 2000 an act of ecocide? Is gross mismanagement or the plundering of fish, forest and water resources a threat to food security, ecocide?
