Breakup Watch: satellite shows big change

Virtually all the ice left Lake Temagami yesterday in fierce wind. This lake is the benchmark for our ice-out call and only today, after hearing from our observers, can we say with near confidence that it is clear throughout the lake. The last ice was seen at mid-day disappearing at Seal Rock.

Terry Graves: northern warrior dies

The nemesis of three Ontario premiers and one Toronto mayor, northern environmental activist Terry Graves died last night after a five-year bout with cancer.

For almost three decades he fought for the environment, including leadership in two of Canada's biggest environmental battles: Temagami and the Adams Mine landfill.

"Graves was a 'fixer' like the George Clooney character in the film Michael Clayton," wrote Charlie Angus in his book Unlikely Radicals. "In a world of hard-asses, Graves was as hard as they come."

Graves made the Adams Mine Coalition presentation to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2000. Toronto's bid for the 2008 Olympics died on impact.

 

"I like a good fight," he once said.

This time it was a fight he didn't win.
