FULL STORY AT Demonstrators, known as the yellow jackets, protest in Marseille against rising fuel costs and what they claim were dilapidated residential buildings that collapsed Monday. A study suggests most Canadian cities have yet to assess the threat posed by climate change despite being the most exposed to any weather disasters it could cause.
A survey of 63 municipalities of all sizes from coast to coast found major gaps in how most are preparing for coming conditions and in how they are reducing their contribution to the problem.
