Where to start?

Chantal Laliberté
When facing different situations, both in our personal and professional lives, we seek information that will help us to find solutions. However, the information and advice we receive can be overwhelming, and we find ourselves asking: Where to start? To answer that question, I suggest that you look through this issue of Plan Canada, which is devoted to the CIP Conference held in Toronto last July.

Moving forward in Canadian communities: Soliloquy of an urbanist

Larry Beasley
This article reproduces Larry Beasley's closing plenary speech at the Canadian Institute of Planners' national conference in Toronto. He touches on the profession's past and present challenges, and what we as planners can do to ensure that the profession delivers a tour de force performance as urbanism once again takes centre stage in public and political discourse.

Gated communities: Selling the good life

D. Kirstin Maxwell
Gated communities are becoming increasingly common in Canada despite concerns expressed by many planners. These concerns include such issues as the privatization of public space and fragmentation of the transportation network. This study examines on-line marketing material of Canadian gated communities to gain a preliminary understanding of the appeal of gated communities to Canadian markets. It is hoped that these findings can help planners manage the demand for gated communities.

Le nouveau plan d'urbanisme de Montréal

Pierre Sainte-Marie & Stéphane Conant
Le Sommet de Montréal de juin 2002 a rassemblé des citoyens et des acteurs en provenance de divers milieux dans le but de refléter et d'articuler leur vision pour le futur de la Ville. Les participants ont fait ressortir des valeurs et des aspirations qui sont traduites maintenant en actions dans le nouveau Plan d'urbanisme de Montréal. Ce dernier a la particularité d'appliquer une approche dans une perspective transversale plutôt qu'une approche sectorielle et conventionnelle,...

Unveiling Artists: Saudi Female Artists Life Stories

Maha Alkhudair
This study tells the life stories of four Saudi female artists. Using life story narrative approach, I focused on the following research questions: How are Saudi female artists fulfilling their aspirations as artists in the conservative Saudi society? What are the common and divergent themes in the life stories of the Saudi women artists, namely Safeya Binzagr, Maha Almalluh, Tagreed Albagshi, and Fida Alhussan? The artists were interviewed using open-ended questions and asked to discuss...

Peer Experiences and Depression Symptoms: Conditions of Association in Preschool, Childhood, and Adolescence

Amanda Lynn Krygsman
Depression is one of the most disabling mental disorders with respect to years living with symptoms and life lost prematurely. Understanding the development of depression symptoms in childhood and adolescence is important considering the increase in prevalence in adolescence and the substantial continuity of depression symptoms over time. Interpersonal perspectives on depression emphasize the interpersonal environment in the development, and remission of symptoms. In the present dissertation, the interpersonal environment focus was peer experiences. Specifically,...

The Alberta Electrical Grid: What to Expect in the Next Few Years in Alberta

Brian Livingston
The Alberta government has stated that it wants to make significant revisions to the supply of electricity to the current electrical grid for the province.  These changes include the phasing out of coal generation by 2030, the supply of 30% of electricity from renewables by 20030, and the introduction of a so-called capacity market in addition to the current electrical energy market.  The Alberta government has also stated that retail electricity prices will be capped...

Inside the Cycle: Understanding and Overcoming Decomposition of Key Intermediates in Olefin Metathesis

Gwendolyn Anne Bailey
Ru-catalyzed olefin metathesis is an exceptionally powerful, versatile methodology for the assembly of carbon–carbon bonds. The N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-stabilized, “second-generation” Ru catalysts have enabled groundbreaking recent advances, ranging from the RCM assembly of cyclic peptides as hepatitis C virus therapeutics, to the elaboration of renewable seed oils and phenylpropanoids into value-added products and chemicals. However, key limitations arise from facile catalyst decomposition. Despite a plethora of studies on the synthesis of new catalysts, and on...

Coopération, utopie et liberté politique : étude sur le socialisme du premier 19e siècle français

Philippe Hurteau
Cette thèse de pensée politique propose une relecture des oeuvres de Claude-Henri de Saint-Simon et de Charles Fourier, deux penseurs du « socialisme utopique » français du 19e siècle, allant dans le sens de leur association avec les pensées actuelles du « contre l’État », de la division originaire du social et de la dialectique de l’émancipation. À l’aide de l’interprétation de l’utopie développée par Miguel Abensour, qui est mobilisée tout en conservant à son...

Recherche développement d'un modèle didactique de l'enseignement-apprentissage de l'expérience esthétique de l'art postmoderne dans le cadre de la formation en arts visuels au collégial

Catherine Nadon
Cette recherche a pour but le développement d’un modèle didactique de l’enseignement-apprentissage de l’expérience esthétique de l’art postmoderne dans le contexte de la formation en arts visuels au collégial où trois principaux défis se posent. L’art postmoderne s’inscrit dans un nouveau paradigme caractérisé par la perte de critères esthétiques et un foisonnement des pratiques qui rendent ses contours difficiles à définir. S’ajoutent à cela une forte présence des préceptes modernistes en didactique des arts visuels...

Online Communities: An Intersection Between Computer-Mediated Communication, Subcultures and the Presentation of Self in the Global Age

Fallon Yousry
There has been extensive literature on the subject of subcultures in the fields of criminology and sociology. The term has undergone decades upon decades of revisions and debate amongst scholars. Despite the vast amount of literature available on the term subculture, there is unfortunately no clear-cut definition of what a subculture is, especially after what many sociologists referred to as the Post-Subcultural Turn. While that is problematic in and of itself, the term subculture still...

Germination and growth data for jack pine in different ground cover types (lichens and feather mosses)

M Pacé & D Paré
This dataset is associated with the article by Marine Pacé, Nicole J. Fenton, David Paré, Franck O.P. Stefani, Hugues B. Massicotte, Linda E. Tackaberry and Yves Bergeron entitled "Lichens contribute to open woodland stability in the boreal forest through detrimental effects on pine growth and root ectomycorrhizal development". It includes data of black spruce germination (greenhouse), 0-6 month-old seedling growth (greenhouse) and 2-3 year-old seedling growth (greenhouse and field, 49°22’N, 79°13’W). Seeds, seedlings and saplings...

Soil nitrogen availability, CO2 exchange, environmental measurements of a High Arctic wetland across growing season

Jacqueline K.Y. Hung, Neal Scott & David M. Atkinson
The data set was collected as an ongoing study at the Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory examining the environmental controls over spatial patterns of soil nitrogen availability in a High Arctic wet sedge meadow and how they influence carbon exchange processes to predict whether this feedback will develop. The goal of the study is to characterize the relationships between plant-available nitrogen and productivity and to see how these relationships are manifested in hyperspectral signatures. These...
