The union’s lawyer said the back-to-work legislation was passed after Canada Post created a “false emergency” over a backlog of parcels at the Crown corporation’s sorting plants. “The Liberal government’s legislation, just like the previous Conservative’s, unilaterally prohibits any lawful strike,” Paul Cavalluzzo said in a statement. “This legislation 6

The idea that bringing back wolves and cougars would have cascading effects across Yellowstone’s ecosystem has long been of interest to researchers. Prior studies concentrated on the impacts to other animals and plants. Ripple and Beschta took that a step further to see what happens to the landscape itself. “This is the first time that we studied how the reintroduction 20
