Policy Options Article Receives Honorable Mention at 2007 National Magazine Awards

The editorial team of Policy Options is pleased to announce that an article by Jean Lemire in the October 2006 issue was awarded an honorable mention in the essays category at the 30th annual National Magazine Awards last June 15. Entitled "Quand la beauté du monde ne suffit plus," the article was written while Mr. Lemire was leading the mission aboard the Sedna IV in Antarctica and describes in personal and poetic terms how our local behaviour with regard to the environment takes on planetary proportions.

Canada should pay more attention to a changing Europe.

PARIS -- With its many museums and beautiful old buildings, Europe is too often dismissed as a quaint tourist destination that is no longer of much relevance to the modern world, and the United States, China and India are seen as representing the present and the future. Europe, instead, has been seen as a symbol of the past, bogged down in high unemployment, slow growth, bureaucratic rigidity, unaffordable social benefits and paralyzed institutions.

The Wind Power Debate Continues to Produce Crosswinds of Controversy

From Barton, Vermont, to the German border with Denmark and from the shores of Lake Huron, to the Romney Marches of southern England, wind power advocates are fighting crosswinds from local residents.

Vermont is one of the most scenic US states and it depends heavily on tourists and seasonal residents to keep its economy moving. It is also a state where the voice of environmentalists is heard loud and clear. .
