RIVER WIND

There is a very little known tragedy when it comes to violence against women - and it is always talked about too little - which is what has become in recent months the most dramatic and serious scandal in the entire history, probably of the whole of Canada: the thousands of native women disappeared into thin air and often, then, found, barbarously killed after probable rape. It is a painful wound and for this reason still partially removed for the civil and developed country of North America, one of the states with the highest quality of life on the planet, taken as an example to be a model for example of multi-ethnic and intercultural integration. .
An impressive, frightening and well-documented Report on these disappearances and killings of women in recent decades was published in June 2019, consisting of thousands of pages and wanted under the pressure of many associations and complaints of native groups or "native Canadians" by Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. The commission of inquiry worked two years to produce this document full of testimonies, data and evidence. One of the conclusions relating to the Report is that an appeal to the entire Canadian population to be present in solidarity and participation so that this femicide often covered by silence or the comfortable desire not to know finally and definitively ends.
There is still a very tense climate between native communities and public institutions and, very often, between Canadian natives or Indians and the rest of the population, especially the white one, whether they are North Americans or Europeans does not matter.
The violence against these women finds reason in the inaction of the state and in colonialism with its related ideologies, based on an alleged superiority.
The exact number of missing or killed women is not known, nor will it probably ever be known (since many family members, for fear of further vengeful violence, did not speak said also because they knew that the investigations would not have been conducted with real zeal). This downward number is believed to be four thousand Native American women missing or killed.

CANADA KILLS NATURE

Canada: first in the world for deforestation - to pull out bitumen

When it comes to deforestation, we always tend to think of the Amazon. Instead, the king of deforestation is not Brazil but the very civilized Canada.

The international group Forest Watch estimates that in just 13 years - from 2000 to 2013 - about eight percent of the world's virgin forests have disappeared from the planet. This is 100 million hectares, three times the area of ​​Germany that disappears due to deforestation. This means that we have destroyed 20,000 hectares of forest every day.

Who was primarily responsible for the wild saw?

The Brazilians? The Indonesians? No. The Canadians who are responsible for the destruction of about a fifth of the trees felled in the world. That is, in Canada, 4,000 hectares of trees are pulled down every day.

That is the beauty of 40,000 square kilometers in a single day!

Second in the standings, the Russians and third the Brazilians.

The study was carried out by the University of Maryland, together with Greenpeace and the World Resources Institute. Satellite images were analyzed to study forest dynamics
from 2000 to 2013.

The main rate of deforestation occurred around the Tar Sands of Canada, lupus in fabula, around Fort Mc Murray. They pull down trees to take out bitumen and without replanting anything. In other places, forests have also been lost - in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, but Alberta and its Tar Sands which transform the boreal forest into oiled land is the queen of deforestation.

Peter Lee of Forest Watch Canada made this comment on why: There is no political will at federal or provincial levels for conserving primary forests.

And I mean, nobody cares about it.
