Climate change could wipe out most birds: study

Climate change threatens extinction for two-thirds of bird species across North America, including almost all of those filling the forests and tundra of northern Canada, says an extensive report.

“More than we thought are vulnerable,” said Jeff Wells of the Audubon Society, which crunched 140 million records from 70 data sources on 604 different species for the study released today.

TORONTO—Education Minister Stephen Lecce said he remains optimistic about ongoing teacher contract talks after averting an education workers' strike over the weekend.

He says that in reaching a deal with the union representing 55,000 education workers important lessons have been learned which can be applied to other contract talks.
