(sound of dripping and filtering from simplesoundscapes e34 goutte)

‘Meet the man turning mushrooms into meat’

(quiet field with crickets)

‘How the pandemic challenged libertarianism’

(crowd at protest)

‘Tide-powered clean energy could help West Coast communities ditch diesel’

(beach in Cuba and truck in Ottawa)

‘Hands off the Greenbelt rally turns up heat on Ford government’

(Anti-Ford government greenbelt policy rally in Ottawa)

‘A wake-up call to oilsands industry to ensure that all necessary measures are in place to prevent future wildlife tragedies’

(loon at lake in Papineau-Labelle reserve and coyotes in Mono, Ontario)

‘Shocking new federal research reveals Alberta oilsands may be vastly underestimating greenhouse gas emissions’
