Petrolia has been embroiled in a dispute with the Quebec government over exploratory oil and gas drilling on Anticosti Island, with a judge ruling in July the province and a private firm didn't have to give the company nearly $13 million.

Superior Court Justice Martin Castonguay did state, however, that Ressources Quebec, a subsidiary of Investissement Quebec, and Saint Aubin must contribute money until next May to enable Petrolia to maintain certain jobs on Anticosti Men Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Spirit Nz Island.

Petrolia (TSX V:PEA) has named Martin Belanger as interim CEO. He has been a member of the board of directors for nearly two years and has worked extensively in the oil and gas industry for the past 24 years.

Petrolia and Corridor Resources yielded their exploration permits for Anticosti Island in 2014 in exchange for promised investment. That deal was reached under the previous Parti Quebecois government.

It's a plush, fuzzy looking, and super cozy jacket that is usually made out of faux fur. (Sometimes the fur is real, too, but mostly it's synthetics that resemble a teddy bear's fluff.) The coat looks kind of silly now. You'd probably roll your eyes if you saw it on someone today on the street. But I bet you come this time next year you'll be used to it. It won't be as common as those Canada Goose puffy jackets that everyone seems to have in New York at the moment, but you'll see it around. You might even wear one yourself. (Just remember where you heard about it first. Both were high fashion, but they looked very different and only one of them is really wearable. If you end up looking to join the herd next year, I would strongly advocate a chestnut brownish teddy bear coat, which will be a (relatively) neutral addition to your wardrobe that you can pair with a variety of things you already own. Louis Vuitton menswear designer Kim Jones did a good job of making this edgy trend wearable.

and Will You WearOne Next Year

Paris Fashion Week is in full gear.

We've seen some bold outwear pieces strut along the catwalk the past couple of days in Paris, including outstanding topcoats, risky sleeveless items such as trench coats and vests, Men Canada Goose Constable Parka Graphite New Zealand and the teddy bear coat.

Ann Demeulemeester's version is simple in color, but is anything but basic. The long teddy bear coat has a strong rock 'n' roll element, and was probably designed with Steven Tyler in mind. It's fun to look at, but when it comes to shopping next fall, leave the long flowy options to Aerosmith, and stick with something more buttoned up.

What is the teddy bear coat, you ask? What, you mean you don't know?

Today on the schedule we have Junya Watanabe, Givenchy, and an intimate presentation from Sandro (you know, one of the four Parisian designers you should know), their first time to show during Paris Fashion Week.

In this game, children have to guess which animal made a specific set of footprints. Print out or draw pictures of a variety of animal footprints on individual pieces of paper and print out images of the animals that made the prints. Distribute the images of the animals to children and keep the footprint pictures. Upon holding up a footprint, children analyze it and hold up the picture of the animal they think the print belongs to. Award a point to each child who correctly identified the animal that made the print. The child who collects the most points wins the game.

Animal Footprint Games for Kids

Identifying Pennsylvania animal tracks requires knowing what species may be present and their track details. . according to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

How to Identify Animal Tracks in Pennsylvania

Children act as detectives to find a missing animal in this footprint game. Hide a plush stuffed animal somewhere and from construction paper, cut out footprints that match the feet of the animal you have hidden. Tape the paper footprints on the ground in random locations that lead the children to dead ends and tape a path that actually leads children to the missing animal. Tell children that an animal is missing from a zoo and you need their help to find it. Provide children with magnifying glasses, if you'd like, and set them out to look for the animal. The first child to find the hidden animal wins.

Matching items based on their attributes is an important mathematical skill and this game can help children hone this skill. Print out images of different animals and images of footprints made by the animals be sure to select images in which the feet of the animals can be seen. Spread the pictures out on a Women Canada Goose Constable Parka Blue Nz Sale flat surface and have children analyze the pictures of the footprints and try to match them to the animals that made them. For a simple game, choose animals and prints that are very different and for a more complex game, choose animals and prints that are similar.

Is Michelle Obama supposed to wear a burka? Since when are a woman's arms considered an erogenous zone here in America? Why would it be inappropriate for the First Lady to attend her husband's address to Congress in a beautiful, purple Narcisco Rodriguez SLEEVELESS dress?

"If your arms and underarms can handle it, stay with it. There's nothing about being a First Lady and going sleeveless that's disrespectful," pronounces Polly Mellen, the legendary fashion editor of Vogue for 30 years.

Hillary Clinton's Social Secretary, Ann Stock, couldn't be more in agreement. Sleeveless "is totally appropriate,"she reports.

Apparently, the gown, which is cropped in the photograph to look like a dress, was custom made from his spring collection fabric and Kors had no idea that any of the pieces that Michelle Obama ordered might end up as her official portrait outfit. Since Michelle, like the rest of us these days, re wears even her most public outfits, expect to see her show up at an official black tie event in it. And for those, who also value sleevelessness, you can buy it at Bloomingdale's in royal blue, for $3,195. Kors is considering whether to add a less expensive version to his MICHAEL by Michael Kors collection.

The designer calls Mrs Obama "modern" and "confident" and says that his dress exemplifies that with its "clean, timeless elegance."

I actually think her look says even more than that. Michelle's sleevelessness conveys the fact that she is ready to get to work as First Lady, doing everything that she can to help the American public. It's her variation on the look that men use to visually telegraph the fact that they are hard at work on important business. When the President is rolling up his shirt sleeves, we know we're being told that his job is far more than ceremonial. Michelle's saying that exact same thing.

Cheap Youth Canada Goose Expedition Parka Spirit Nz

Michelle's also giving us another not so subtle message she's strong and tough. Those arms with their well defined biceps (and let's not fail to mention her beautifully sculpted shoulders) look powerful enough to wrap around a distressed nation and lift it up. She's no frail, half starved Nancy Reagan type who doesn't rub shoulders with the masses. On the contrary, Michelle Obama is a big hugger and doesn't restrict her hugs to big ticket donors or Hollywooders. At her husband's address to Congress she warmly hugged her seatmate, 8th grader Ty'Sheoma Bethea from Dillon, South Carolina, who had written to the president for help fixing her failing school. Michelle's strong arms convey the message that if she can personally hug and lift us out of a lousy economy, and a lack of top healthcare or education for everyone, she will.

Whoever those twitterers or should I call them "twits" are out there who have raised the question of propriety, they should not only get a life, but also a history book. Not only have many First Ladies been photographed at official state and White House events, America's most fashionable previous First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy practically made sleeveless looks her uniform, whether they were dresses or two piece shirt and skirt ensembles.

As for the fashion professionals, whose job it is to dress us appropriately, how do they rate Michelle's sleevelessness?

"We wore sleeveless dresses all the time," Letitia Baldridge, Jackie Kennedy's social secretary, tells me. "It was the fashion of the times and it was fine then and is fine now for wearing in the White House. It's not like Mrs. Obama was going to see the Pope, or like she had her bosom popping out that would have been immodest. There's nothing immodest about showing your arms!"

America Handle Her Bare Arms

Envy is exactly what's at the root of any Obama bare arm criticism according to Glenda Bailey, editor in chief of Harper's Bazaar.

Maybe some of those sleeveless critics are just jealous of Michelle's fine form and aren't willing to lift anything more than their forks. Pasternak says you need to do three sets each of "Lying Down Cheap Youth Canada Goose Expedition Parka Spirit Nz Dumbbell Tricep Extensions", "Dumbbell Hammer Bicep Curls" and "Dumbbell Lateral raises, to achieve her toned shape.

Now, those going nuts over "Sleevegate" probably really have their knickers in a knot over Mrs. Obama's recently released official White House portrait in a sleeveless black crepe jersey gown by American designer Michael Kors. Kors happens to have been known over the years for his sleeveless styles so it was only a matter of time before these two teamed up.

"Anyone who criticizes Michelle Obama's right to bare arms is jealous of how gorgeous and elegant she looks when she does so," she says.

However, he said it would "massively concern" him if a shotgun had been handed in which was found on the course and he said he had been contacting other managers to see if this was true.

Absolutely disgusting! Yet another example of human kind killing animals for merely getting in the way. This snobbery and way of thinking really needs to be addressed otherwise our beautiful wildlife will be gone forever.

"We already spend time dodging golf balls when golfers tee off without having to worry about stray bullets," she said.

However, a spokesman for the Bank House Hotel and Golf Club, which manages the course, said they had given permission for the birds, designated as "vermin", to be shot in case their poo got on golf balls and that the incident was not "particularly of note".

What sad times we live in.,Absolutely disgusting! Men Canada Goose Freestyle Vest White Nz Sale Yet another example of human kind killing animals for merely getting in the way. This snobbery and way of thinking really needs to be addressed otherwise our beautiful wildlife will be gone forever.

A spokesperson for the RSPB said although the birds were protected it was legal to shoot them during the open season between September 1 and January 31 next year if someone has a gun sports shooting licence.

The geese are totally unaware of where they choose to be their natural feeding ground. The geese just see an open space and use it for their purpose. How dare the management say the birds faeces are "unhygienic" and "grim". Oh how human etiquette should get in the way. If the ball lands in excrement then pick it up and clean it. I'm sure no one will hold it against you for picking up a ball during play then placing back in it's original position!

Between seven and eight Canada Geese were found dead in the lake at Bransford Golf Course, near Worcester, yesterday morning after neighbours heard shots the previous evening.

Neighbour, 59 year old Kevin Garrington, said: "I'm a bit horrified this happened on our doorstep.

"We would literally end up with hundreds of the things here if we didn't control their numbers.

The manager, who declined to be named, said if a golf ball landed in bird faeces it had to be played or cleaned which was "unhygienic" and was "grim" for people playing on the course.

"That is not something we would take lightly in the slightest," he added.

Mr Garrington estimated he lived between 40 and 50 yards from the lake.

"I have counted seven dead geese. I'm concerned about the dangers to people who live here. If someone had been innocently walking across there or with their dog they could have been hit."

Absolutely disgusting! Yet another example of human kind killing animals for merely getting in the way. This snobbery and way of thinking really needs to be addressed otherwise our beautiful wildlife will be gone forever.

His wife, animal lover Jennifer, was also disgusted.

She did not phone police but her neighbours have reported the incident.

Anger as geese are shot dead on golf course From News Shopper

"The way to control them is to shoot them. It's the mess from their faeces that is pretty grim. It's unhygienic.

The geese are totally unaware of where they choose to be their natural feeding ground. The geese just see an open space and use it for their purpose.

She said: "My first reaction was 'what happens if a child gets hold of it?' There's no way I could go off and leave that lying in the grass."

Mrs Kirby also claims she found a double barrelled shotgun with a night sight on the course three weeks ago, handing it in at the golf course clubhouse, which the club is now looking into.

"It's nothing particularly of note for us."

Men Canada Goose Freestyle Vest White Nz Sale

Lyn Kirby, aged 69, of Chapel Lane, Bransford, which lives yards from the course made the grisly discovery while walking her Yorkshire terrier cross Jack Russell, Bertie.

She said: "I felt sickened. The geese have been there since we have been here in 1980 it's one of their natural feeding grounds."

"There are a number of Canada Geese which are designated as vermin by the people who determine these things. It's not us who determines them as vermin.

A spokesman for the hotel said: "We have given permission and it takes place here quite regularly. It's how we control the Canada Geese here.

HORRIFIED neighbours have spoken of their outrage after geese were shot dead and their bodies left lying in a golf course lake just yards from their homes.

"As we watch the internet grow and we watch online shopping grow, there really is no imaginable limit to what this could mean," adds Surette, who works for ZF Max International, a Canadian based operation with a parent company in China. ZF Maxemploys up to 60 Nova Scotians and runs a lobster plant near Halifax.

"It's buyer beware. It is buying blind," warns Roger Gingerich. The fashion broker is not a fan of the e commerce behemoth. Using Alibaba, companies with big orders can directly solicit Chinese manufacturers bypassing the extra cost of a middleman like him.

Ma's North American invasion is already in full flight. The company has just sold its first shares in New York, raising a cool $25 billion.

"I am thrilled," says Marc Surette about the remarkable volume.

The McMaster University professor adds that Jack Ma's plan for massive growth may hinge on the trust factor: "To a large extent, going forward, their success will depend on how well they can set up safeguards and ensure that buyers and sellers who use their platform are satisfied."

Lobster supplierZF Maxis certainly satisfied. Surettesaysthe Maritime lobster industry has struggled in recent years. But, with Alibaba, he says "it's allowing us to reach the Chinese market in a new way and for Atlantic Canadian lobsters that's reaching close to 1.4 billion people."

Alibaba is China's largest online commerce company where consumers connect with products and companies connect with suppliers. When you tally up the sales, it's already bigger than Amazon and eBay combined. And it owes much of its success to China's ballooning middle class, where a growing number of people can spend more on things they need and on stuff they truly don't need.

He likens the site to a dating service where, when you finally see the goods, you're sometimes disappointed.

Alibaba founder, Jack Ma, told Stephen Harper during his recent trip to China thatcustomers bought 20,000 Canadian lobsters through his online empire last year. Ma who appears set on world e commercedomination predicted better results to come.

He explains that the order "came in entirely wrong. It was paid for upfront. There was no getting the money back. And a number of people were fired over it, including the CEO."

Roots Canada sells sweats on the site. The popular clothing company forayon Alibaba is "a preliminary test to help determine whether we decide to develop this further," states spokesmanRobert Sarner.

"There a huge amount of demand from China," Ma told the Canadian prime minister and fellow audience members in Hangzhou, China, where Alibaba is headquartered. He added that 120 million people are shopping on his sites every day.

"The only reason Alibaba is in business is because everyone wants it cheaper. Every year, we've got to be cheaper," laments Gingerich. But he says there's sometimes a higher price to pay because not all online dealers can be trusted.

A massive surge in Canadian lobster sales is just one more sign China based e commerce giant, Alibaba, is shaking up the online shopping world.

Women Canada Goose Whistler Parka Graphite Outlet Nz

The Chinese weren't just clicking on Women Canada Goose Whistler Parka Graphite Outlet Nz Canadian lobster last Tuesday. On that day, sales through Alibaba's websites exceeded $9.3 billion (US).

"We can help Canadian small businesses to sell their products to China," he informed Harper at their meeting. Canadian companies are already cropping up on Alibaba, peddling everything from maple syrup to clothing.

The fraudsters are in on it, too

Alibaba shakes up online shopping for Canadian makers

Ma has vowed to crack down on vendors peddling knock offs.

Marketing expertManishKacker says ensuring all players are content is a challenge faced by every e commerce site. He points out that Alibaba has some safeguards in place, such as a forum to provide feedback.

Gingerich gives another example where a company received a large shipment of garments that were sized extra small instead of extra large.

At first glance, Canada Goose also appears in on the game. That means if you buy through the site, the "Canada Goose" jacket that arrives by mail will probably be a fake.

And he got them. One company alone estimates it sold more than 90,000 Nova Scotia lobster this past Tuesday on Alibaba's colossal upscale shopping mall site, Tmall. Tuesday was China's deep annual discount day.

The broker says he knows Canadian companies who have hired manufacturers through Alibaba and got burned: "I know of a million dollar deal that went south. It was for headgear."

It's been just a year since US Airways Flight 1549 inadvertently rendezvoused with a flock of Canada geese, sending the Airbus A320 splashing into what everyone now calls the "miracle on the Hudson." (And the geese into the great beyond.)

Wildlife populations growingBut officials also report steady increases in wildlife populations. In a report for 1990 2008, the Federal Aviation Administration and the US Department of Agriculture write:

"She's chased flocks of geese into the water," said Bob Hood, the airport's wildlife manager. "She's really good at her job and she really likes her job.".

Reported incidents include deer and coyotes on runways, but 98 percent involve birds.

Particularly since US Airways Flight 1549's water landing last January focused attention on the problem, pilots and air traffic controllers have been more inclined to report incidents involving birds and other wildlife.

(Personal note: As a student naval aviator on a solo flight in a jet trainer in Mississippi, I narrowly missed a deer that had jumped the fence and wandered onto the runway as I accelerated for takeoff. It came close to being a very bad day for both of us. Years later, when I was Women Canada Goose Expedition Parka Red New Zealand on the Monitor's "Small Plane, Big Planet" aerial adventure, we had to abort the landing of our small Cessna when a herd of zebra ambled across a dirt runway in Namibia.)

Hero captain Chesley Sullenberger, his flight crew, and some of the passengers got together in New York Friday for a joyous and emotional reunion. Some were more than a little nervous as they rode a ferry out to that spot on the Hudson where their aircraft suddenly became a sinking vessel. At least eight people died, and six more were hurt.

The Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend, Ore., hired Filly a border collie whose official title is "wildlife management canine."

New York's Kennedy Airport reports the most number of bird strikes. Sacramento International Airport in California (which is along the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds) also has a high number of reported bird strikes.

If a 12 pound goose strikes an airliner going 150 miles per hour at lift off, the force would be that of a 1,000 pound weight dropped from a height of 10 feet, according to the FAA.

After US Airways 'miracle on the Hudson

"Many populations of wildlife species commonly involved in strikes have increased markedly in the last few decades and adapted to living in urban environments, including airports. For example, from 1980 to 2007, the resident (non migratory) Canada goose population in the USA and Canada increased at a mean rate of 7.3 percent per year. Other species showing significant mean annual rates of increase included bald eagles (4.6 percent), wild turkeys (12.1 percent), turkey vultures (2.2 percent), American white pelicans (2.9 percent), double crested cormorants (4.0 percent), and sandhill cranes (5.0 percent). Thirteen of the 14 bird species in North America with mean body masses greater than 8 lbs have shown significant population increases over the past three decades. The white tailed deer population increased from a low of about 350,000 in 1900 to over 30 million in the past decade."

all Canada Goose Expedition Nz Online the signs that fall is on the way

One morning you walk out in the woods and the air will feel colder. The duck pond will be covered with skim ice. The ground, nearly white with frost, will crunch under your feet. A brisk, dry northwest wind will blow through, shaking trees and sending crimson maple leaves tumbling in torrents. In just a few days the branches will be bare. The woods and the season will seem different.

You could spend a morning in the marsh shooting black ducks, mallards and woodies, and the afternoon trudging through alder runs and aspen ridges for grouse and woodcock. In between, or instead, you could try to break up a fall flock of turkeys, then lure them back in with an assembly call or some plaintive kee kee runs.

Autumn has a tale to tell, and like every good story there a beginning, a middle and an end.

Others, like the deer hunters, are focusing on the first and last hour of daylight in the expanded archery zones while waterfowlers try to trim the Canada goose population. A few may even seek more eclectic wingshooting in the way of snipe and rails. And some will try more traditional endeavors like bears over bait.

Or you might opt for an afternoon in a bow stand with the archery season for deer now open statewide. Cold weather has stirred the deer into moving later in the morning and earlier in the afternoon as they suddenly recognize the urgency of laying on calories before winter. Peak breeding is still a few weeks off but the rut has begun with bucks opening and tending their scrapes and searching for an early doe.

Some folks don even recognize early autumn arrival. Others measure it with chronological events like Labor Day, the kids return to school or the autumnal equinox. Some will sit on the sidelines of a soccer field in a T shirt and shorts, playing one last round of 18 holes, slipping up the local creek with a fish pole and a dozen crawlers or casting for stripers fattening up before their journey south.

Up north the pace of change picks up. Leaves are turning color. Frosts come more regularly. The moose rut is beginning. One day the morning stillness is broken by the deep, gutteral grunts of a pair of bellicose bulls challenging each other for the breeding rights to a cow and signaling the beginning of the end to early autumn.

Temperatures are typically warm, except for a few cold hours at the beginning and end of the hunting day. Mosquitoes and black flies still rule the woods and swamps, and the forest canopy carries a dense green foliage. But in the bottoms and swamp margins, red maple leaves are already hinting at the changes to come.

The 11th month, which came in with cold nights, warm days and rain, now offers only cold, deep bone biting cold, and snow. The whitetail rut and the regular firearms season are both peaking, and more hunters are in the woods than any other time of the year. Success will bring an early end to the season for some while others will continue through this season and into the next. December brings a last chance at whitetails in the muzzleloader season, and a transition from fall to winter. He can be reached at:.

Mid autumn is what most folks visualize when they think of fall. Green is gone from deciduous trees and their leaves now iridesce with an array of reds, yellows and oranges. Frosts are nightly and deeper, replacing the dawn dew with a hoary coating of crystals. These are the days that stir a hunter blood and offer the most variety.

Late autumn is a cold and colorless time. Most of the leaves have fallen and what few remain are the same pale beige as those that lie on the forest floor. Snow will fall soon, if it hasn already, and then will accumulate. The ponds are frozen and the puddle ducks have moved to the coast or left for southern climes. The woodcock, snipe and rails are also gone, and the turkeys are bunching up around dairy farms and backyard bird feeders.

Akimiski Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary

Photo: Credence Wood. Lesser Snow Geese.Akimiski Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary (MBS) is situated adjacent to the west coast of James Bay, with the closest community being Attawapiskat in Ontario, approximately 80 km west of the MBS. Akimiski Island is the largest island located in James Bay. Like all islands in James Bay and Hudson Bay, Akimiski is part of Nunavut. The MBS comprises about two thirds of the terrestrial island portion as well as a marine portion extending 10 km offshore in James Bay. It has a steep south shore and a gently sloping north shore with extensive mud flats and coastal marsh. These fertile flats, which support dense stands of grass and sedge, become narrower along the northeast shore where willows fringe the sedge marsh. From the north shore, sedge fens with numerous hummocks or frost palsas extend inland. Muskeg occurs from the top of the south bank as far north as the sedge meadows. The southeastern part of the island near Cape Duncan is characterized by sedge flats and open ponds. Several small islands occur offshore from Cape Duncan. Offshore waters here contain eelgrass beds. The coastal marshes interspersed with beach ridges, extensive mud flats and eelgrass beds make the MBS attractive to migratory birds during the spring and autumn migrations as well as during the breeding season. More recently, fewer than 20 000 Lesser Snow Geese have been recorded in spring. About 1 000 000 pairs of Lesser Snow Geese nest in the coastal marsh and in the sedge willow fringe at the edge of the sedge meadow along the northern coast, extending west of the MBS boundary. Canada Geese from the Southern James Bay population nest throughout the island, with highest densities on coastal marsh near the willow fringe, but also on the permafrost hummocks and spruce islands in the inland sedge fens. These habitats of short grasses and sedges provide brood rearing areas that are important for growing goslings. Other waterfowl that use the sanctuary for nesting, moulting and/or staging are American Black Duck, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Green winged Teal, Ring necked Duck, Black Scoter and Red breasted Merganser. Atlantic are also abundant each spring, their numbers having been estimated at about 10 000.Common Eider, Herring Gull and Arctic Tern nest on the small islands near Cape Duncan. Large numbers of Black Scoter (approximately 20 000 000, primarily males) congregate off the northeastern and southeastern coastline of the island for wing feather moult during late summer. Although the northwest and north coast of the island (which is not within the MBS) are considered the most important areas for shorebirds, large concentrations of over 20 species of migrant shorebirds also use the MBS and other coastal areas on the island. Semipalmated and White rumped Sandpipers are particularly abundant migrants. Small numbers of Marbled Godwit nest along the north coast and to a lesser extent in the interior sedge meadows; these are part of a disjunct James Bay population, and the nearest other breeding grounds are on the prairies. Semipalmated Plovers also nest on the north shore of the island.Top of PageAccess and ActivitiesMBSs are established for the protection and conservation of migratory birds.
