Days after taking office, Doug Ford ended cap-and-trade, axed 758 clean energy contracts, fired Ontario's first chief scientist. @EmmaMci & I made a (loooong) list of how the Ford government has reshaped environment policy. Bookmark this; updates to come.

Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown has rammed through a request for the Doug Ford government to approve another MZO for the biggest project in the city's history. The public has been completely sidelined. Wow, there's so much drama in this story by @isaaccallan

I'm already digging in with my mentees, and so fired up about their amazing projects. I've had a case of the professional blahs for much of this year, but this program is a balm.

I’m ecstatic to have been selected by @caj for its mentorship program. I’ll be mentored by @jasonachiu, the deputy visual editor at @nytimes Headway initiative. Headway produces deeply researched, visually ambitious, data-rich projects that look beyond the 24-hour news cycle.

"In the complaint filed Monday in California, the Rohingya charge that the algorithms Facebook uses, and its inability to pull hateful rhetoric down in a timely fashion, led to real-world violence" against them.

Rohingya refugees are asking for $150 billion in damages from Facebook, for the role it played in amplifying hate speech leading to genocide against the minority Muslim group in Myanmar.

"While proactively hardening our infrastructure against likely climate impacts will probably be a wiser investment than doing it reactively and slowly, the wisest investment of all for the government would be to do everything within its power to keep global warming to a minimum."

NEW: The Ford government is extending paid sick leave benefits until July 31, 2022 - as the new variant emerges. Labour Minister Monte McNaughton told me today he wants those benefits around "throughout this pandemic." #onpoli

Today, Ontario's financial accountability officer made a strong case for adapting public infrastructure for climate change in a timely report after the BC floods. Ontario could save at least $12 billion if it decides to be proactive Full report: #onpoli
