A place between the tides a naturalist's reflections on the salt marsh by Harry Thurston( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 486 libraries worldwide
"Based on childhood memory and his naturalist's journals, A Place between the Tides tells the story of Harry Thurston's return to the beloved environment of his boyhood when he moves to the Old Marsh on the bands of the Tidnish River in Nova Scotia. This is the story of the salt marsh, but it is also a personal odyssey, a homecoming for Thurston as a naturalist, culminating in his rediscovery of the bounty of nature where land meets sea." "As a boy, Harry Thurston spent many carefree days on the family's farm on the banks of another Nova Scotia salt marsh, swimming with his mother in the river at high tide, watching the return of tens of thousands of gaspereaux in June, and hiding in the "enfolding green" of the grasses of the marsh. As an adult, Thurston observes the life of the salt marsh from his study window or as he walks or skis through the marsh: a blue heron fishes the marsh pools like a poet searching for the mot juste; a mother fox brings a bloody groundhog pelt to her offspring so that they will learn the smell of prey; a willet throws a lariat of sound around the marsh; a lone harbor seal chugs solemnly along the river." "Throughout the book, Thurston's love of the salt marsh and its creatures shines through. Just as land blends with sea, this is a magical blending of a naturalist's observations and a man's most deeply held memories."--BOOK JACKET

Teenagers reimagines the way people think about adolescents. No longer society's scourge and scapegoat, the teenager emerges from David Bainbridge's fascinating study as an awe-inspiring natural phenomenon that evokes reverence and wonder. Bainbridge, a veterinarian and anatomist, suggests that the second decade is the most important in the human lifecycle. In lively prose, he explains the science behind the changes that occur both on the surface of the teenage body and deep within the teenage brain, from lanky limbs and bad skin to falling in love, sleeping till noon, and the irresistible all
Juno Beach Canada's D-Day victory, June 6, 1944 by Mark Zuehlke( file )

On June 6, 1944, the greatest armada in history stood off Normandy and the largest amphibious invasion ever began as 107,000 men aboard 6,000 ships pressed toward the coast.

Drawing on personal diaries as well as military records, Juno Beach: Canada's D-Day Victory - June 6, 1944 dramatically depicts Canada's pivotal contribution to the critical Allied battle of World War II

Public protection, privacy and the search for balance a statutory review of the DNA Identification Act : final report by Canada( Computer File )
3 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Le 26 février 2009, le comité a reçu du Sénat un ordre de renvoi relatif à l'étude des dispositions et de l'application de la Loi sur l'identification par les empreintes génétiques. Cet ordre de renvoi a été donné en vertu de l'article 13 de la Loi, qui prévoit un examen de cette dernière par un comité parlementaire dans les cinq ans suivant son entrée en vigueur. La Loi sur l'identification par les empreintes génétiques (la Loi) constituait l'un des deux principaux éléments du projet de loi C-3, Loi concernant l'identification par les empreintes génétiques et modifiant le Code criminel et d'autres lois en conséquence. Lorsqu'elle est entrée en vigueur, le 30 juin 2000, la Loi instaurait une banque de données nationale visant à faciliter l'identification judiciaire de personnes en relation à des crimes commis. Elle établissait également le cadre législatif régissant la conservation et, dans certains cas, le prélèvement et la destruction, des profils d'identification génétique (échantillon d'ADN) et des échantillons biologiques dont ces derniers sont extraits. Le cadre législatif défini par la Loi vise à compléter les dispositions du Code criminel (le Code) relatives aux prélèvements d'ADN. La modification des dispositions du Code relative aux modalités de prélèvement d'ADN, qui donne aux tribunaux le pouvoir d'autoriser le prélèvement d'un échantillon d'ADN sur les personnes déclarées coupables de certaines infractions désignées, constituait le second principal élément du projet de loi C-3
