There is a 2, square-mile methane plume hovering over the Four Corners area of the western US. If the fuel efficiencies of the hydraulic fracturing pumps are improved, the emissions can be reduced. This reduction would be accomplished primarily through capturing natural gas that escapes into the air, and making it available for sale. The rules also will reduce air toxics, which are known or suspected of causing cancer and other serious health effects, and emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
Terrorist attacks are increasingly focused on western interests and Canada has been specifically identified as a target by terrorist organizations. Canada is also at risk from domestic sources such as radicalized individuals, extremists and criminals.
This threat, aggravated by the prevalence of potential CBRNE materials normally used for industrial and scientific purposes, requires coordinated action by many contributors.
Its purpose is to provide the policy framework that will guide the creation of sustainable capabilities and common standards in CBRNE policies, programs, equipment and training. The Strategy promotes the vision of an integrated capability across Canada by framing a scalable, responsive, dynamic, sustainable and evidence-based approach for all contributors to CBRNE events.
This approach is equally based on the Four Components of Emergency Management: The Strategy is based upon five key strategic objectives that have been agreed upon as fundamental if Canada is to achieve sustainable resilience to the risks and threats of CBRNE events.
Leadership - to guide coordinated policy and program development by all levels of government and contributors that will foster and promote CBRNE resilience; Risk Management - to integrate CBRNE into a consistent all-hazards risk management approach, including robust hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment methodologies; Capability-based Planning - to inform policy, program and investment decisions based on the principles of capability-based planning.
Effective and InteroperableWorkforce - to build an effective and interoperable workforce that is supported by a modern, dynamic and responsive training infrastructure backed up by appropriate technologies; and Information and Knowledge Management - to develop effective information, knowledge and intelligence managements systems and mechanisms across all jurisdictions and contributors.
The Action Plan is based on the five strategic objectives. All levels of government will work collaboratively to monitor the implementation of the Strategy and Action Plan.
Strategic Context The consequences of natural and human-induced hazards and disasters have become more widespread due to increasingly urbanized and globallyinterconnected societies. The threat and risk posed by chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives CBRNE Footnote 1 events is a global challenge.
As Canada operates within the international community, it is not immune from world events which could have a profound effect on the Canadian economy, society, and way of life.
The terrorist events of the last decade changed perceptions and priorities with respect to international threats and risks. Footnote 2 Canada is also at risk from domestic extremists, radicalized individuals, and criminals.
Footnote 3 The prevalence of CBRNE materials in Canadian society for use by industry, in scientific research and medical diagnostics, among other purposes, creates a significant risk of diversion or exploitation by terrorists or criminals.
Terrorists have used CBRNE materials in the past, and evidence indicates that they continue to be active in pursuing and acquiring such materials. Footnote 4 Coordinated investments to improve Canada's activities in advance of, during, and after CBRNE events, based on risk assessments, are a key component of developing national resilience to such events.
Footnote 5 International Partnerships In today's complex global environment, Canada must invest in its relationships with international partners in order to facilitate the exchange of information and intelligence, enable mutual assistance and scientific cooperation, and counter the proliferation of CBRNE materials.
The risk of proliferation of CBRNE materials further complicates the international security environment in which Canada operates. In recognition of the threat of terrorists gaining access to ColdWar-era weapons and materials of mass destruction, the G8 launched the Global Partnership Against the Spread ofWeapons and Materials of Mass Destruction under Canada's leadership.
Footnote 7 This strategy served as important guidance towards fulfilling the federal government's responsibilities with respect to CBRN events. Based on this foundation, the present national strategy expands on the federal strategy by including the responsibilities of all levels of government.Federal campaign finance law is composed of a complex set of limits, restrictions, and requirements on money and other things of value that are spent or contributed in the context of federal elections.
 This is the fourth report on international humanitarian law (IHL) and the challenges of contemporary armed conflicts prepared by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for the International Conference of the Red .
Executive Summary: I am evaluating solutions to reduce the proliferation of chemical and radioactive industrial carcinogens that threaten human health nationally and globally.
I am specifically concerned with the toxic health effects on minority and low-income communities. 1. Chemical Process Alternatives for Radioactive Waste Document number: FIU-ARCb 2.

The purpose of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives Resilience Strategy for Canada (hereafter referred to as "The Strategy") is to provide the policy framework that guides the creation and maintenance of sustainable capabilities, common standards and steers investments in CBRNE policies, programs, equipment, and training in a common direction.
