The head of a U.N. team investigating atrocities in Iraq announced Monday it has found “clear and compelling evidence” that Islamic State extremists committed genocide against the Yazidi minority in 2014 and said the militant group successfully developed chemical weapons and used mustard gas. Karem Khan told the Security Council the team also concluded war crimes were committed by the Islamic State group against predominantly Shiite unarmed cadets and personnel from the Tikrit Air Academy who were captured, tortured and subjected to mass execution in June 2014.
Three U.S. Gulf Coast oil refineries reduced fuel production on Monday as the four-day-old Colonial Pipeline outage limited the ability to move products to market. Colonial shut its 5,500-mile (8,850-km) pipeline system, the major artery delivering gasoline, diesel and jet fuel to mid-Atlantic and southeast U.S. states from Texas and Louisiana, due to a ransomware attack on Friday.

Woodcock said parents and guardians can "rest assured that in making our decision, the agency undertook a rigorous and thorough review of all available scientific data, as we have with all the COVID-19 vaccine authorizations." Pfizer vaccines for kids age 12-15 could be administered as soon as Thursday, Woodcock said, so long as all goes well at Wednesday's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) meeting, which is the next step in the vaccine rollout.

Sewer lines under the City of Edmonton will be less invisible in coming years after city councillors agreed Monday that sewage-related decisions should be more transparent. City council will have more authority on major sewer projects, like the proposed re-routing of the South Edmonton Sanitary Sewer trunk line to the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant from a regional facility to the north. Council's executive committee accepted the recommendation for improved oversight Monday. It means the decision to send the sewer line to Gold Bar is on hold. Mayor Don Iveson noted that previous decisions on sewer lines were made by the sanitary services committee, which is made up of city administration and industry representatives. "This will allow for much more robust public engagement and ultimately more political oversight over something that was previously handled a little bit more behind closed doors," Iveson said. Coun. Ben Henderson said the new model will give council a say and the public more opportunity to give input on potential changes. "It will also allow the public to weigh in when some of these larger decisions are made in the future that are going to have impact on some neighbourhoods," Henderson said. The new council oversight is welcome news to the Gold Bar Park Alliance. The group has been challenging a 2017 committee decision to re-route the south Edmonton sewer line to the Gold Bar plant, instead of routing it to the Alberta Capital Region Wastewater treatment facility near Fort Saskatchewan. Jim Rickett with the Gold Bar Park Alliance is pleased that councillors have agreed to more transparency. "Those decisions are so important to ensure that routing of sanitary sewage trunk lines will be made by the citizens of Edmonton through our elected city council representatives," Rickett said. The community league boards of Capilano, Beverly Heights, Rundle Heights, Highlands, Bellevue and Gold Bar have been pushing the city to have more authority on such decisions. Residents are concerned the increased sewer activity would create odour, noise and traffic as well as compromise the recreational use of the parkland. Rickett said the community was shocked when they heard about the decision in 2018 and learned that city council had no apparent knowledge of it. "We met with city councillors and we heard from them they also had no awareness, input or approval of such an impactful decision," Rickett said. The Alberta Capital Region facility is ideally located away from residential areas, he said. "And [it] has a very large amount of land already within their existing fence line and correctly zoned as public utilities to ensure that will protect the future of our river valley parkland for many, many generations to come." Henderson said the decision on where the line will eventually end is likely to be made later. With new technologies, changes in weather, water flow and environmental regulations, it's better to wait, he suggested. "We could make the decision today and just have to revisit it in eight, nine, 10 years from now, which is not a good use of the public's time." In 1998, the city created a 75-year plan for sewer lines for new land developments within the city.

Calgary will test allowing those of legal age to imbibe in city parks this summer. Between June 1 and Sept. 7, Calgarians will be able consume alcohol at designated picnic sites around the city. The sites will be bookable online. Council voted 12-2 in favour of the proposal on Monday, with Coun. Diane Colley-Urquhart and Coun. Jeromy Farkas voting against. Data will be collected on how well the pilot goes, and presented to council by November. Coun. Jyoti Gondek said she supported the idea, but questioned why booking picnic tables would be required. "I don't know why we're over-regulating this," she said. "I don't know why we wouldn't just put signs on these picnic sites and say go ahead and have a drink here." City administration said the booking system will enable them to collect data on the project. Calgary currently has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to alcohol consumption in city parks, with the exception of events like festivals that have obtained an Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis licence to sell alcohol. A 2019 city survey found a slight majority were in favour of allowing public consumption. But the city postponed a pilot project which would have tested out the concept, saying with opinion somewhat divided and the complexities of enforcement more time would be needed to study the issue. A later survey from the city, in December 2020, found interest in the idea has grown — with 79 per cent of respondents indicating support for alcohol consumption at small social gatherings in parks. Coun. Colley-Urquhart said with the city's mental health and addiction strategy, OKing public drinking could send a mixed message. "I think it's important for us to not dismiss the expert opinions of the [city's] medical officer of health," she said. Dr. Karla Gustafson, Calgary's CMOH, had written a letter recommending against the pilot project, saying that without alcohol parks are places for lower-risk gatherings and exercise — and that there are many potential harms that could come from increasing places for people to consume alcohol. "It is … important to have public spaces without alcohol," she said. "Alcohol, although often an accepted part of social gatherings in Calgarian culture, is not a benign substance. The behaviour of intoxicated individuals adds strain to justice and health systems already under considerable pressure." 'Parks have to be for everybody' Coun. Gian-Carlo Carra, who had brought forward the motion, proposed it would give people an opportunity to enjoy a few drinks together while practicing physical distancing outside. He thinks it's something that could work beyond the pandemic — a more European style of consumption. Carra said the plug will be pulled on the project if it threatens Calgarians' enjoyment of city parks. "Parks have to be for everybody," he said. He pointed that Calgary would be joining the province, which has allowed people to drink alcohol in provincial picnic sites since June 2020 under the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Amendment Act. Locations and regulations associated with the pilot project will be posted on the city's website before June.
