In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. The copyright information page reads, in part:

    “© Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada, represented by the Minister of Health, 2008

    This publication may be reproduced without permission provided the source is fully acknowledged.”

    Downloading it from here is just a bit more convenient than getting it emailed to you by Health Canada. Also, having it posted here means Google will index it.

  2. This report must have cost Health Canada hundreds of thousands of dollars to assemble. It’s pretty odd that some random blogger is the one making it available.

  3. Tories Try to Hide Health Canada Report That Urges Action on Climate Change

    With every passing day, Harper’s government becomes less and less distinguishable from Shrub’s. The latest data point is news that the Tories have tried to hide a Health Canada report that:

    “calls on decision-makers, governments and stakeholders to step up their efforts to prevent global warming from threatening the nation’s air quality, saying the bad air increased the spread of diseases and caused premature deaths. It also warns that Canadians can expect inevitable and at times severe health-related impacts associated with climate change.”

    because, of course, our knowing that would be bad.

  4. The Global Warming Report Ottawa Doesn’t Want You to See
    August 21, 2008

    Canada’s federal government is trying to bury an important report on climate change and health … but the blogosphere is fighting back

    Last month, C&C reported that Canada’s federal government was planning a “low-profile release” of Human Health in a Changing Climate: A Canadian Assessment of Vulnerabilities and Adaptive Capacity, a 500-page report prepared for Health Canada. As with a previous report from Natural Resources Canada, Harper and crew had decided to hide science that they don’t like.
