  • It’s time to pay the water bill we owe Shoal Lake 40 First Nation

    Just 180 kilometres east of Winnipeg, on the Manitoba-Ontario border, is Shoal Lake 40 First Nation. For 17 years the community has been under a boil water advisory, despite having supplied Winnipeg with clean drinking water for a century. After being relocated to a man-made island and having 3,000 acres of its land given to the City of Winnipeg in 1912-1919, the community was left relying on ferries and winter roads to reach the outside world. For a brief moment last week, it seemed all three levels of government would fund the bridges and 28 kilometres of all-weather road Shoal Lake needs to reach the Trans-Canada highway and, by extension, anywhere else.

  • Alberta says last year's budget surplus bigger than expected

    The Canadian province of Alberta said on Tuesday its budget surplus for the last fiscal year was nearly C$350 million ($280.2 million) bigger than forecast even though oil prices plunged in the second half of the year. Alberta, whose oil sands are the largest source of U.S. oil imports, posted a surplus of C$1.4 billion for the 2014-15 fiscal year, which ended on March 31. The increase came as the province's revenue, about a fifth of which comes from the oil and gas industry, was almost C$1 billion more than forecast as oil prices rose as high as $107 per barrel in June before collapsing to less than $47 by the end of March.
