    Description:

    Waste has always been a by-product of human activity. Indeed, all aspects of our lives - working, playing, eating - generate some form of waste. Managing it has been a challenge for millennia, more so since the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century gave rise to unprecedented industrialization and urbanization.Canadians are concerned today about many waste-related issues. These include:The generation of waste - how much garbage is produced in Canada, and is production going up or down? The impact of waste on the environment - has the way we deal with garbage changed over the years?What are governments and others doing to address these concerns?This article examines these issues by creating a statistical portrait of solid waste in Canada.

    Description:

    Over the last few years, the rapid expansion of large livestock operations has fuelled heated debates in many rural communities across Canada. Proposals for new hog operations, among others, have encountered vocal opposition from neighbours and residents in the community. Promoters defended the economic value of their project claiming that good farming practices and improved technology minimizes the potential risk of nuisance and pollution. However, opponents raised concerns about the reduction of their quality of life in association with large livestock operations, especially hog farms. They fear being driven out of their homes by strong odours or worry about accidental contamination of ground water in surrounding areas, as in Walkerton, Ontario. Still others are upset by prospects of added truck traffic, dust and noise resulting from feed and livestock transportation.
