Quotes

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Saskatchewan , "This included the rate at which collared individuals encountered one another per year (encounters logged as animals ranging to within 1.4 m of each other) and the extent to which animals overlapped in annual home range (proportion of shared minimum convex polygon ranges). Overlap was significantly greater in the high density area compared to that of the low, but not if we only considered individuals that directly encountered each other, implying that familiar individuals will maintain a constant degree of range overlap regardless of density. Encounter rate was nonlinearly related to home range overlap. This relationship was also density-dependent, exhibiting negative density dependence at high proportions of overlap, primarily in the high density subpopulation."
"You can ban whatever you want, I mean, drugs are banned, everything is banned, but who can enforce it?" he said. "You know, are they going to take your kitchen knives away on you?"
"We're recruiting for all our centres, Edmonton, Estevan, Regina, and all positions really. Entry level engineers, heavy duty mechanics, electronic technicians, petrochemical engineers and techs, we're always hiring. I'd say we have 70 to 150 positions to fill at any given time. In Estevan for instance, we need mechanics right now."
