Bob Scammell – Alberta Outdoors
Various aspects of weather since April Fools have made us all a tad testy. Certainly the heat and the drought are major factors, but, for example, I am outraged that my prediction for when we would finally get a real rain was dead - on: two or three days in the middle of July.

If you’re seriously into growing garlic as many people are these days, you know it doesn’t need much water, and you do not water at all in July, prior to harvest because it makes things difficult with huge mud balls on the roots to remove with a dog comb, and splits in the bulb’s wrapper, causing storage problems.

Trudeau falls flat on climate-change plan - NATIONAL AFFAIRS by THOMAS WALKOM
Justin Trudeau’s plan for the environment is an odd mixture of precision and studied vagueness.
It is precise in most details. The Liberal leader has something to say on a host of things, ranging from electric cars to sockeye salmon.
But on the big question of how to deal with climate change, he is disappointingly vague.
Here, Trudeau retreats into the labyrinth of federal-provincial relations, promising much consultation with the premiers but little explanation of how and when these talks might lead to action.
Clearly, the Liberals have been doing their homework. Trudeau’s plan incorporates many ideas from the mainstream environmental movement.   Full Story >
