One of my friends was feeling kind of down--so I retold Cynthia Connell's amazing stories to bring a smile to my friend's face. It totally worked. Actually, I can almost guarantee you're going to smile through these stories too. Really, her life should be a miniseries (a movie isn't enough time!). I laughed. I cried. I thought deep thoughts. Cynthia's story about feeling the power of a righteous home made my heart swell. I want that feeling in my own home for me, my family, and any guest who comes. Cynthia's story about finding her identity, I'm sure, is relatable in many ways to you and me. As always, I wish I had more time to visit. I'm sure I would have been edified. I hope you feel that as well.

Thanks to Emory for suggesting this week's topic, mysterious animal sounds! Further reading/watching: The Story of Elk in the Great Smoky Mountains Terrifying Sounds in the Forests of the Great Smoky Mountains Evidence found of stingrays making noise This New AI Can Detect the Calls of Animals Swimming in an Ocean of Noise The wapiti [pic from article linked above]: The stingray filmed making noise [stills from video linked to above]: The tawny owl makes some weird sounds: The fox says all kinds of things: Show transcript: Welcome to Strange Animals Podcast. I'm your host, Kate Shaw. Emory suggested we do a new episode about strange and mysterious animal sounds a while back, which is one of my favorite topics. The problem is, it's hard to find good audio clips to share. It's taken me a while, but I think I've found some good ones. In late September 2018, in the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, some hikers recorded a terrifying animal sound. The sound wasn't a mystery for long, though, because they soon saw the animal making it. Here's what it sounded like: [elk bugle] It's the bugle of a male elk, which I'm going to call wapiti to avoid confusion. It's a sound that wasn't heard in the Smoky Mountains for at least a century. The eastern wapiti was once common throughout eastern North America but was driven to extinction in the late 19th century, although the last wapiti in North Carolina was killed almost a century earlier than that. All North American wapiti almost went extinct by about 1900, and hunters and conservationists worked to get nature preserves set aside to save it and its habitat. Starting in the 1990s, wapiti from western North American subspecies were reintroduced in the southeast, with reintroductions in the Smokies starting in 2001. There are now at least 200 wapiti living in the mountains, probably more. I've seen them myself and they're beautiful animals! The wapiti is a type of deer. We talked about it way back in episode 30 along with the moose. Various species of wapiti live throughout Europe and Asia as well as North America, although it's been hunted to extinction in many areas. As we mentioned in episode 30, the name elk is used for the moose in parts of Europe, which causes a lot of confusion, which is why I've chosen to call it by its Algonquin name of wapiti. The wapiti is a really big animal, one of the biggest deer alive today. Only the moose is bigger. It's closely related to the red deer of Eurasia but is bigger. A male, called a bull, can stand about 5 feet tall at the shoulder, or 1.5 meters, with an antler spread some four feet wide, or 1.2 meters. Females, called cows, are smaller and don't grow antlers. Males grow a new set of antlers every year, which they use to wrestle other males in fall during mating season. At the end of mating season the wapiti sheds its antlers. The bugling sound males make during mating season is extremely loud. The sound tells females that the bull is strong and healthy, and it tells other bulls not to mess with it. [elk bugle] Our next sound is from an animal that scientists didn't realize could even make sounds. There've been reports for a long time of stingrays making clicking noises when they were alarmed or distressed, but it hadn't been documented by experts. A team of scientists recently decided to investigate, with their report released in July of 2022. They filmed stingrays of two different species off the coasts of Indonesia and Australia making clicking sounds as divers approached. They think it may be a sound warning the diver not to get too close. This is what it sounds like: [Stingray making clicking sounds] One exciting new technological development is being used to detect underwater sounds and hopefully help identify them. It's called DeepSqueak, because it was originally developed to record ultrasonic calls made by mice and rats.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of Duane Vaughan.Duane is the beloved friend, companion, confidante, sympathetic shoulder, adventure partner, co-paddler, encouraging co-cyclist, and drinking buddy of so many people on multiple continents that it is impossible to list everyone whose life his friendship has touched. He will be deeply missed by all.Duane was also the beloved son, brother, cousin, nephew, and uncle to his family. He is survived by his parents, Brenda and Rodger Vaughan, his twin sister, Moira, his brothers, Steven and Ryan (Lisa Nutley), and his nephew, James. An avid outdoors adventurist, Duane was always up for a hike (up hills usually reserved for mountain goats), a cycling trip (through the Arizona trail, the Colorado Rockies, most of Europe, or, maybe, just for a lark, across all of Canada), or a canoe trip (involving several portages through Algonquin park).  Even though he could always leave his companions in the dust, Duane was patient and often backtracked to help out those who were trying their best to keep up with him.With medical assistance, Duane was able to avoid the worst symptoms of the glioblastoma he had been fighting for a year and a half and passed peacefully on Friday October 28.  After his initial diagnosis, Duane underwent a highly effective initial surgery and rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in Nottingham, England.  Fiona Whelan was vitally important to his recovery, and for her support both in England and during his final weeks in Ontario, his family will be forever grateful.  Without her, we honestly don't know what we would have done.After his initial treatments, Duane was able to have a series of incredible adventures with his family and his friends in both England and Canada.  He packed a lot of life into his last year, and the memories he helped to shape through those adventures will be treasured by those who loved him always.When his cancer came back, Duane maintained a positive outlook and focused on maintaining those relationships he had fostered throughout his life.  Despite being in pain all the time, Duane greeted his guests with a smile and saved all his energy for the windows of visiting time that he was able to handle.  Duane was fortunate to have the care of excellent staff at the Juravinski Hospital and at St. Peter's Hospital in Canada, and he may not have been up to as many of the adventures as he had if not for the excellent care he received at the Nottingham City Hospital.  A visitation will be held on Tuesday Nov. 1 at Merritt's Funeral Home on 287 Station St. in  Smithville Ontario from 4-8 pm. There will be a celebration of life to follow next summer.In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, a cause very near and dear to Duane: it was what his 2010 Cross Canada Cardio Challenge cycling trip fundraised for.  Other causes to support include the Canadian Cancer Society or Dying with Dignity Canada.

At Don't Call Me Resilient, we've been busy planning season 4 of the podcast, which starts to roll out in November. We're even starting to think about season 5. But we decided to stop production to talk about something we felt we couldn't ignore.We've watched this incredible spectacle around the Queen's death and public outpouring of support and love for the British monarchy.Here in Canada, Queen Elizabeth was the official head of state and her funeral this week was made a federal holiday. In Ontario, the Minister of Education directed schools to conduct a moment of silence “to recognize the profound impact of Queen Elizabeth II's lifelong and unwavering devotion to public service.”And yet next week, those same children will be exploring the history of Indian Residential Schools and the immense ongoing damage of that system — started and long supported by the Crown.In the middle of this outpouring of love and grief for the Queen — and the monarchy she represented — not everyone is feeling it. Not everyone wants to mourn or honour her or what she represents.And there are a lot of reasons why.For example, the head of the Assembly of First Nations, RoseAnne Archibald told CTV News that the Royal Family should apologize for the failures of the Crown …“particularly for the destructiveness of colonization on First Nations people.”Another example came from Uju Anya, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, who posted a tweet in which she identified the Queen as overseeing a “thieving raping genocidal empire.”To explore these ideas further, we reached out to two scholars who are regular contributors to Don't Call Me Resilient. Both say that the Queen's death could be a uniting moment of dissent for people from current and former colonies.Veldon Coburn is Assistant Professor at the Institute of Indigenous Research and Studies at the University of Ottawa where he teaches a class called Colonialism, Territory & Treaties.

Guests: Angela Mashford-Pringle and Courtney Skye The death of Queen Elizabeth II last week fuelled a wave of global grief, but also reawakened memories and ignited conversation of a brutal colonial legacy and the future of the British monarchy. The monarch's 70 years on the throne have been both celebrated and questioned. Her reign included seven decades of silence for Indigenous peoples of Canada who faced treaty violations, residential schools and countless missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. As King Charles III ascends to the throne, we speak with two Indigenous women about why the monarchy does not represent the same thing to everyone. Joining “This Matters” is Angela Mashford-Pringle, an Algonquin woman from Timiskaming First Nation, who is assistant professor and associate director at the Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health, as well as Courtney Skye, a Mohawk woman (Turtle Clan) from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory who is a research fellow at Yellowhead Institute.

Folk/Roots singer songwriter Mia Kelly joins the show to discuss her single ‘Kitchissippi', & new album “Garden Through The War”!   "Kitchissippi" is an intimate and delicate ballad dedicated to the Ottawa River, using its traditional name in Algonquin. Located just steps away from her home in Gatineau, QC, the river has played a central role in Mia's life and upbringing as a source of comfort and relaxation over the years. From learning how to swim for the first time to picnicking by the water with close friends, the river is ingrained in Mia's happiest memories.   During the pandemic, Mia sought solace in the form of river surfing, a lesser known variation of surfing which became an outlet for her to dispel her frustrations and negative emotions. In the midst of her daily practice of surfing the Ottawa River, Mia was spontaneously inspired to compose a song in its name.   Mia Kelly is a singer-songwriter from Gatineau, Quebec who writes and performs in both French and English.  Blending folk music with strong influences of blues, pop and americana, she is making her mark in the Canadian folk music scene at the age of 19.   Connect with Mia Kelly! —         —   Support Colton Gee and Desert Tiger ----- Check out our webstore @ Follow the Desert Tiger Podcast @   Follow Colton Gee @   -----

In today's episode I'm sharing a very special conversation with Megan McGuire aka @forest.whisperer. I remember seeing an Instagram post that she made a while back with Moon names, and this list really spoke to ancestral connection to land and place and seasonal activities especially to parts of Europe where some of her ancestors are from. This episode is in honor of what's often referred to as the Harvest Moon - or the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. And as you'll hear, there are many other names for this seasonal moon. I got to know Megan more through this conversation and really appreciate the work that she does that is about connection, reconnection and belonging and exploring mythic time and creating Bioregional wheels of the year. Megan is a biologist and she works for the federal government and designs ecosystem restoration projects to rehabilitate the Mississippi River that her ancestors have long cherished. She lives on Dakota land in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and her ancestors were Polish and Finnish and German, Irish, French possibly English and from the Saulteaux and Wyandot tribes. She is also a mother and a permaculture gardener and works with ritual in daily life and I love how she talks in this conversation about weaving that in otherwise mundane activities in a very easeful and creative way. I love this conversation. I hope you do too! Visit Megan on Instagram @forest.whisperer and her website: www.mythictime.com. Mentions: Farmer's Almanac began publishing names for full Moons in the 1930s based on what Colonial Americans adapted from Native tribes including the Algonquin people on the Eastern Coast. These names have become widely known, but even though they now seem standardized, they are not universal. Venerable Bede was an English monk at the monastery of St Peter in the Kingdom of Northumbria who lived in the 7-8th century. He wrote On the Reckoning of Time which references calendars and lunar time.

The old man sat with his nutcracker systematically working the lever, cracking, and shelling pecans. About every fifth nut went into his mouth as he worked. The little girl climbed up on a chair beside him. “Can I crack nuts, too, Grandpa?” He grinned at her. “Crack or crack and eat?” Her smile was mischievous. “Both.” “Well they are mighty good eatin'. I'll tell you what, since we only have one nut cracker, I'll crack and you can help me eat.” He set another nut in the cracker, pulled the lever, separated the shell from the nut inside and handed it to her. These are good Pawnee pecans. They're big and have a nice buttery flavor.” “Pawnee? That's the name of a Native American tribe, right.” “Yep. Almost seventy years ago a fellow named H.L. Crane suggested namin' the different kinds of pecans after the native tribes in pecan growing territory. So we've got Comanche, Cherokee, Choctaw, and a bunch more pecan varieties—each a little bit different. The name pecan is an Algonquin word that translates—more or less—to “a nut requiring a stone to crack its shell. “We call the original Texas pecan the ‘native' variety. Pecans been growin' in Texas a long time. Back in the 1500s, Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca wrote that the native people he met ate pecans. But pecans go back even further than that. Fossilized pecans found along the Rio Grande River are estimated to be 65 million years old.” He handed her another nut and popped one in his mouth. “There are wild pecan trees and planted pecan orchards across most of Texas, ‘specially in the Hill Country. Some of the wild trees are 200 years old. Did you know, pecan trees can grow to 120 feet tall and measure four feet across?” “Wow! That's a humungous tree. You'd need a tall ladder to pick the nuts.” “Well, nowadays, pickin' is mechanical. A big machine puts its metal arms around a tree's trunk and gives it a big shake for about a minute. The ripe pecans just fall to the ground. Some growers catch them on special sheets, others sweep ‘em up with mechanical sweepers.” “We have lots of pecan trees around here.” She pulled a shelled nut from the growing pile.”There are even two in our front yard. But the squirrels beat us to most of the pecans.” “Yep. Little rascals. We're mighty lucky to live in the Texas hill country, especially in San Saba.” “Because there are so many pecan trees?” “That's part of it. San Saba is known as the ‘Pecan Capital of the World' and San Saba is the home of the ‘Mother Pecan Tree.'” “Pecan trees have a mother?” “Well, the folks at Texas A&M over in College Station tell the story of E.E. Risien. He was an Englishman who moved to Texas in 1874 and spent his life growing pecan trees near where the Colorado and San Saba Rivers meet. He gathered male pecan blossoms from pecan trees all over the area. Then, placed the pollen on the female blossoms of a special tree to create new varieties. His special tree gets the credit for creating many, many different pecan varieties—that tree is the ‘Big Mama' of the pecan business. “People liked his pecans. Customers from all over the world bought them. Queen Victoria and Alfred Lord Tennyson in Great Britain ordered his pecans. The Post Cereal Co. was another customer. “By 1904, Texas had really grown and so many pecan trees had been cut down to make way for cotton crops or for use in building wagons, farm implements, and furniture, that the number of pecan trees was gettin' thin. But in 1906, an interesting thing happened. "Texas Governor James Hogg and his daughter visited Hogg's law partner in Houston. That night, Governor Hogg commented that when he died he did not want a stone monument at his grave. Instead he said, ‘Let my children plant at the head of my grave a pecan tree and at my feet an old walnut tree. And when these trees shall bear...'"

This week we are joined by guest Alexis Shotwell to discuss how we might turn from the purity politics that govern many of our lives and this hurting world toward collective struggles for transformation and liberatory futurisms. Rather than forfeiting our complicity and implication in a world with mounting problems, we learn of a helpful heuristic for transforming inaction or the urge to be the perfect activist to a ground where we might be better- equipped to stick around for the long hall in struggles for social justice. According to Alexis, this practice calls for admitting our mistakes and centering repair. In this episode, we dive into the relationship between purity culture and white supremacism, our complicit locations and implications in violence, and the importance of showing up to repair our broken and harmed relations inherited or otherwise. Alexis elucidates that it is only through the messy process of owning up to these broken relations throughout time and seeing how we might participate in and take on culturally appropriate relations of repair, responsibility, friendship, and comradeship in the struggles for liberation that we can survive these times. We hope this episode inspires your curiosity and (re)activates your commitments to this world. Alexis Shotwell's work focuses on complexity, complicity, and collective transformation. A professor at Carleton University, on unceded Algonquin land, she is the co-investigator for the AIDS Activist History Project (aidsactivisthistory.ca), and the author of Knowing Otherwise: Race, Gender, and Implicit Understanding and Against Purity: Living Ethically in Compromised Times.

Chanelle Gallant has participated in grassroots movements for sex workers rights and racial justice for 20 years as an organizer, writer, strategist, fundraiser and speaker. She is on the leadership team for Showing Up For Racial Justice in the US, she co-founded the Migrant Sex Workers Project and has worked with sex work organizations locally and nationally including Butterfly, Maggie's, Desiree Alliance, and Red Canary Song. Her writing about sexuality, social justice and sex work has appeared in dozens of publications. Elene Lam is the founder and Executive Director of Butterfly (Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network) and the Migrant Sex Workers Project. She has been involved in the sex work movement and migrant and labour activism for almost 20 years. She has also conducted training for community members, service providers and policymakers on sex work, migration, anti-oppressive practice and human rights in more than 20 countries. Shiri Pasternak is a researcher, writer, and organizer and a professor of Criminology at Toronto Metropolitan University in Toronto. She is the author of the award-winning book Grounded Authority: the Algonquins of Barriere Lake Against the State, and the co-founder and former Research Director at Yellowhead Institute. Shiri notes that the book that she and two of her collaborators spoke with me about—Disarm, Defund, Dismantle: On Police Abolition in Canada—was, in part, the outcome of a gathering called The Abolition Convergence that was set to take place in Toronto in May 2020, but had to be canceled due to COVID. They had planned, she says, to use the event to build “trust and solidarity and understanding across movements.” But rather than accept the cancellation of the event as an ending, the organizers and contributors decided to reformulate the project and reroute their energies into creating the book. This is reflective of a spirit of relentlessness that characterizes the movement for police abolition here in Canada. While Pasternak suggests that abolition in Canada is regularly thought of as a “copycat movement” that follows and reacts to political trends in the US, it's important to see the ways in which their local focus grows out of a commitment to communities and peoples who are directly impacted here by the violence of the settler colonial state. So, for people looking for direction and a means of mobilizing, Disarm, Defund, Dismantle is a book that, as Elene Lam explains, is important as a tool for organizing, and not just as a source of academic analysis. She is profoundly insightful on this point, insisting that we tend to assume that these “false binaries between theoretical, intellectual and practical work” exist, when, in fact, it is within social movements that “theory is generated.” Or, in Channelle's words, the book highlights “frontline community defense against policing” and the “theoretical, political knowledge that comes from that work.” We talk about the manipulative way that the figure of the “average Canadian” is invoked, and how it is usually used to reinforce exclusion. Those seen as “outsiders” are more easily ousted, criminalized, punished, Lam explains, because they are seen as harming the community of “average Canadians.” She argues, that, in this context, the “anti-trafficking movement, the anti-sex work movement benefits everyone except sex workers. So, police, law enforcement, politicians become the heroes,” and more power flows to the police. What will it take to break the identification of working class people in Canada with “white owning classes”? What will it take to dismantle the basic logic of property rights by which so much containment, enclosure and capture continues? How do we grasp at the roots of oppression in Canada and elsewhere?

Rewriting Joy Amidst Crisis - Danielle Daniel

How do we balance joy with sorrow in the midst of ongoing crises? Seeking freedom is not frivolous but rather essential, so that we are able to care for ourselves as we protect wild places, and so we can be resilient in the face of environmental and social breakdown. This conversation explores the importance of strengthening our relationships to our ancestors, protecting the places where we live, and reconnecting with our own inner child in this search for joy.Guest Danielle Daniel is an award-winning author and illustrator of settler and Indigenous ancestry, who has written two novels. Forever Birchwood is a middle grade novel set in her northern hometown of Sudbury, following Wolf, on the crest of adolescence, as she fights to protect a beloved forest. Danielle's bestseller adult novel Daughters of the Deer is an historical fiction novel inspired by the lives of her ancestors— an Algonquin woman and a soldier/settler from France, and their first born daughter who was murdered by French settlers. Danielle joins Reseed to talk about her novels, and to delve into environmental protection, polarization, finding common ground, the power of stories, and reconnecting with joy. In the words of Mary Oliver, joy may be life's “way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world”. Joy and childhood wonder need not be an escape from everything we collectively face, but rather they can coexist with the sorrow, give life meaning, and support us in being the caretakers that we need to be. Listen at reseed.ca.

Samuel de Champlain returns to New France in 1615, and leads an alliance of Huron and Algonquin tribes into western New York State to attack Onondaga, the heavily fortified heart of Iroquois territory on the site of today's Syracuse. Along the way Champlain goes fishing on Lake Huron and Lake Ontario, and we learn that he was not the first European to do. The battle itself is dramatic. The French and their allies build a huge siege tower that requires two hundred men to move in position. But not all ends well. Champlain is injured, and endures unbelievable pain in the retreat to Huronia. The outcome is a matter of some historical controversy.

Topic: About Canada - Quebec unlocks world's only maple syrup strategic reserve Quebec Maple Syrup Producers(QMSP)is releasing more than half of the world's only strategic reserve of 45 million kg of maple syrup to keep up with soaring demand - avoiding a sticky situation for pancake lovers. 魁北克楓糖漿商會(QMSP)正釋出全球僅有的4500萬公斤楓糖漿戰略儲備的逾半儲量,以滿足高漲的需求,避免鬆餅迷無楓糖可吃。 Sales of maple syrup have climbed since the pandemic spread in 2019 and led to more people eating at home. Adding to the syrup squeeze, Quebec's harvest in 2020 was the smallest in three years due to unusually warm weather. 自2019年疫情蔓延、導致人們更常在家吃飯以來,楓糖漿銷量一飛衝天。由於不尋常的溫暖氣候影響,魁北克省2020年的收成量創下3年新低,也使楓糖漿更加缺貨。 The Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve spans 24,805 square meters, the equivalent of five football fields, securing syrup in sterilized 170-liter barrels. 「全球策略性楓糖漿保留計畫」的儲備廠佔地2萬4805平方公尺,相當於5座足球場,楓糖漿則密封在170公升的滅菌桶中。 QMSP is also approving 7 million new taps during the next three years, a 14% increase, to bolster production. QMSP也同意在3年內增採700萬棵楓樹,約增加14%,以提升楓糖漿生產量。   Next Article   Topic: To keep coronavirus out, Canada's smallest province kept the rest of the country away 為了不讓新冠病毒進入 加拿大最小省分與全國其他地方保持距離 In the winter months, when icy conditions keep most people from traveling by sea, there are only two ways to enter Prince Edward Island: by plane or an eight-mile bridge. 在(因海面)冰凍以致大多數人無法搭船(上島)的冬季月份,只有兩種方式可以進入愛德華王子島:搭機或(開車走)8英里長的橋。 When the novel coronavirus started spreading around the world early this year, Canada's smallest province, off the country's eastern coast north of Nova Scotia, found itself at a geographical advantage. The island's remoteness, paired with an aggressive isolation campaign that restricted nonessential travel and enforced two-week quarantines for those arriving in the province, paid dividends. 當今年稍早新冠病毒開始蔓延全球之際,這個位於加拿大東岸外海、新斯科舍省以北的加國最小省分,發現自己享有地理上的優勢。該島的偏僻性,再加上限制非必要旅遊以及蒞臨該省者強制檢疫2週的激進隔離活動,獲致良好效果。 By late April, as death counts were ticking upward in other parts of Canada and soaring in the United States, the province had confirmed just 27 cases of the virus — all of them linked to off-island travel. None of those patients was hospitalized, and no one died. 到了4月底,當加拿大其他地區的死亡人數向上攀升,美國的死亡人數也一飛沖天之際,該省只有27起新冠病毒確診病例─所有病例都與島外差旅有關。這些患者中無人住院,也無人死亡。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1506234 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1388474   Next Article   Topic: Fly south or roost? Canadian 'snowbirds' weigh Florida mid-pandemic Birds of a feather normally flock together, but the pandemic has divided Canada's "snowbird" warm weather migrants into two camps:those staying home this winter and those heading to Florida no matter the cost. 通常來說,物以類聚,但是這場疫情已經使加拿大每年遷徙到氣候溫暖區的「雪鳥族」分成兩陣營:待在家鄉過冬,以及不計代價前往佛州者。 Nearly a million Canadians make the annual pilgrimage, fleeing to the southern United States to pass what would otherwise be gray and snowy months with their toes tucked in the sand and ocean breeze in their hair. 每年有將近100萬名加拿大人飛奔到美國南方,享受漫步沙灘、和煦海風吹過髮梢,度過在家鄉會是滿是灰白雪世界的幾個月。 The coronavirus has led a majority to forgo the trip this year - but for those flouting Canada's repeated calls to stay put, the price tag on winter at the beach has skyrocketed. 新型冠狀病毒導致今年大多數人放棄這趟旅程,但是對那些不顧加拿大一再呼籲不要旅行的人來說,到南方沙灘過冬的代價飛漲。 Each plane ticket costs Can$500 and hauling the vehicle 55 miles across the border sets customers back $1,000. 每張機票要500加幣,把車子運送55英里越過邊境,則要花上1000加幣。   Next Article   Topic: Canadian officials warn drivers not to let moose lick their cars 加拿大官員警告駕駛 不要讓駝鹿舔他們的車 Officials in Jasper, an alpine town in Canada's Alberta province, have put up signs asking motorists to avoid allowing moose to lick the salt off their cars. 加拿大亞伯達省高山小鎮賈斯柏的官員們,已經張貼標語要求駕駛人不得允許駝鹿舔他們車外的鹽。 "They're obsessed with salt, it's one of the things they need for the minerals in their body," Jasper National Park spokesman Steve Young told CNN. "They usually get it from salt lakes in the park, but now they realized they can also get road salt that splashes onto cars." 「他們癡迷於鹽,鹽是其中一種牠們身體必需的礦物質」,賈斯柏國家公園發言人史蒂夫.楊告訴美國有線電視新聞網,「他們通常會從公園的湖鹽獲取它(礦物質),但現在他們知道,他們也能從濺在車上的路鹽得到」。 At the Jasper National Park, where people often park on the side of the road in hopes of catching a glimpse of the moose, letting the animals near your car is actually a serious danger. 賈斯柏國家公園內時常有人停車在路邊,希望能得到駝鹿的注意,但讓動物接近你的車,其實是非常危險的。 By allowing moose to lick the salt off your car, they will become habituated with being around cars. That poses a risk to both the animals and the drivers who can accidentally crash into them. 允許駝鹿舔你的車外的鹽,將會讓牠們習慣徘徊於車子旁邊。對動物及可能意外與牠們相撞的駕駛人都構成風險。 Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1422097   Topic: In Canada, Unraveling Centuries of Indigenous Land Claims Whenever Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or his Cabinet ministers speak in certain parts of Ontario or Quebec, they begin by acknowledging they are on “unceded Algonquin territory.” 每當總理賈斯汀.杜魯多或他的內閣部長在安大略或魁北克省的特定地方發表演說時,都會以承認他們是站在「未讓渡的阿岡昆領土上」開場。 That recognition is just one of the ways Trudeau's government has been trying to signal a top priority: righting the wrongs Canada has done to indigenous people, especially over land that aboriginals say was taken from them unjustly. 如此承認只是杜魯多政府試圖表明其第一優先要務的途徑之一,這要務則是導正加拿大對原住民所做的錯事,特別是針對原住民聲稱被以不公平方式奪走的土地。 But finding common ground on this issue has proved to be one of Trudeau's most difficult policy initiatives, and critics say efforts to resolve the land disputes have bogged down. But both sides agree on the importance of sorting out the claims. 在這議題上尋求共識已證明是杜魯多最棘手的政策舉措之一,且批評者指出,解決土地紛爭的努力已陷入困境。不過,雙方都認同解決土地聲索問題的重要性。 “The process of negotiating land claims should be an absolute pillar of reconciliation,” said Ken Coates, a historian at the University of Saskatchewan who studies treaties and is a consultant to indigenous groups. “This is our chance to get it right and if we don't — boy, when will we get the chance again?” 薩斯喀徹溫大學歷史學家肯恩.柯茨對條約有深入研究且是原住民團體的顧問,他說:「談判土地聲索的過程應該成為雙方和解的絕對支柱。這是我們導正錯誤的機會,若不這樣做,天哪,不知何時還有機會? 」 Of the many issues dividing Canada's federal and provincial governments from its indigenous people, land claims are among the most symbolically important and economically consequential, often involving vast amounts of territory. 在造成加拿大聯邦政府、省級政府與原住民間隔閡的諸多問題中 ,土地聲索是最具象徵意義與經濟重要性者之一,經常事關極大量的領土。 Some claims involve hundreds of millions of dollars, and tribes are often interested in controlling the land at issue, by, for example, having a say over logging, oil exploration and mining. 有些土地聲索涉及數億美元,部落往往對擁有這些爭議土地的控制權感興趣,例如在伐木、探油和開礦上享有發言權。 One claim by various Algonquin groups involves the 8.9 million acres of the Ottawa watershed — which includes Canada's Parliament buildings and Supreme Court. The government thought it had settled that claim in principle a year ago, but it has ended up in litigation anyway. 各阿岡昆族群共同提出的聲索之一,是渥太華流域的890萬英畝土地,其上有加拿大國會大廈和最高法院。 政府認為1年前原則上已解決了這項聲索,不過到頭來還是成了對簿公堂。 The claims are legally thorny, often requiring historians, archaeologists, geographers and geologists to give evidence sometimes stretching back before recorded history to support, or challenge, them. 這些聲索在法律上相當棘手,經常需要歷史學家、考古學家、地理學家和地質學家提供證據,有時還必須回溯到有文字可考歷史之前,以支撐或挑戰這些聲索。 In some regions, land may have been occupied by different indigenous groups at different times, even changing hands after battles that were unrecorded. These groups may all assert rights, and claims can overlap. 在部分地區,土地可能被不同的原住民族群在不同的時間占據過,甚至曾在戰爭後易手而沒有留下紀錄。這些族群可能都提出主權聲索,而且可能彼此重疊。 Then there is the problem of treaties. Some indigenous groups, like the Algonquins, never signed treaties giving up their land. The government says it is talking with about 140 indigenous groups in that situation. 接著還有條約問題。一些原住民族群如阿岡昆人,從未簽署過放棄他們土地的條約。 政府表示他們正與處於這種狀況下的約140個原住民族群進行談判。 Others did sign treaties, and a government tribunal that deals with treaty disputes has 72 cases and is so overwhelmed that it cannot estimate how long it will take to resolve them. 其他族群確實簽署了條約,處理條約爭端的1個政府法庭手上有72個案件,案件多到不堪負荷,難以估計要多久才能解決。 The result is that settlement negotiations occur at a frustratingly slow pace. 結果則是,和解談判是以令人沮喪的龜速進行。 Source article: https://paper.udn.com/udnpaper/POH0067/320990/web/
