The Z-1-a was #Canada's only mainline electric locomotive. They were originally delivered to the Canadian Northern Railway by @generalelectric in 1917
The Canadian Northern Railway was headquartered in Toronto and between 1899 and its merger in 1923 into @CNRailway owned a main line between Quebec City and Vancouver via Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Edmonton.
The National Harbour Board also operated several of the same type which were passed on to @CNRailway. Electrification was restricted to Montreal, and went from Central Station to Saint-Lambert, Turcot, Montréal-Nord and Saint-Eustache-sur-le-lac, later renamed Deux-Montagnes.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

It's took a long time—4 months of fermentation, in fact—but I made my own garum (or more accurately, liquamen), under the supervision of the world's leading archaeological authority on the subject. (Looking at you, Sally!) Here's how I did it...
I started with small, whole sardines, purchased frozen and then left to thaw (from a Portuguese grocery in #Montreal)
Then I added salt, "Pope's Salt" from Cervia in #Italy, but any sea salt will do: 20% of the weight of the fish, or 77 grams. #garum

#COVID19vaccine math update for #Quebec, May 31st:
-We've surpassed the benchmarks of 60% of the population with 1st doses and 5% fully vaccinated.
-7-day rolling average up to 82k.
-With bookings, we're on track to vaccinate 66.4% of the population.… ImageImageImage
Higher Ed minister Danielle McCann suggested that distancing may not be needed on campus in cegeps and universities if 75% of 16-29s in #Quebec are fully vaccinated by fall.

For reference, only 60% of 18-29s have a 1st dose or appointment booked so far.…
To reach this threshold, another 185k young adults 18-29 would need to agree to get vaccinated. But new bookings in this group have ground to a standstill.

Teens 12-17 are still booking, but with many set to get vaccinated in high schools, it's unclear what % will get it.

Infektionsgefahr in #Schulen über belastete #Aerosole
Professor #Kähler schließt sich der #AITAsk Bewertung an:
"#Lüften alleine reicht nicht. Die Schulen wurden ja lange zugemacht, weil es eben nicht reicht". #twlz #kmk #rki…
Schulen sind mittlerweile wieder geöffnet, weitere Jahrgänge sollen folgen, dabei steigen bundesweit die Infektionszahlen. Gleichzeitig breitet sich die Mutante #B117 weiter aus. #Schulen sollen "eher" keine Pandemie-Treiber und dank #AHA+L sicher sein, sagt das #RKI. Stimmt das?
Eine erste Warnung, was ein #Superspreader im #Klassenzimmer bewirken kann und warum #Schulen sehr schnell zu einem Pandemie-Treiber werden können, zeigte das Ergebnis der #AITask-#Modellierung bereits im August 2020: Superspreader Klassenzimmer #twlz #kmk

A (HAPPY) THREAD: The #Montréal city council today passed a motion to call on the #GOC to decriminalize possession of drugs for personal use. We @HIVlegal applaud this initiative and congratulate all who fiercely advocated for it. We are proud to stand among you. #drugpolicy 1/7
Today’s motion joins the growing call for #decriminalization in municipalities across Canada, including #Toronto, #Vancouver, and others. Cities now recognize the many harms of #criminalization, which marginalizes people who use drugs and pushes them away from #harmreduction. 2/7
Removing the threat of criminal law will allow people who use drugs to do so more safely. Lives will be saved. #canpoli #Montréal 3/7

The U.S. has ~300 cities whose population exceeds 100K. Most of them have "buffered" (by PAINT: 0 protection) bike lanes, with the (car) #parking lane along the curb. SWITCH the bike & parked car lane, and you'd have traffic-calming and a MUCH safer #cycling experience. @PBOTinfo
I cannot stand seeing streets that are "improved" for "cyclists" by putting a wide bike lane *between* parked and moving cars. #Portland's N Denver Ave is a classic example. SWITCH the bike lane & car #parking lane; it solves many issues simultaneously! /2
Biking between the curb and parked cars means that there's almost *zero* car movement around you, outside of intersections. Door-zone biking is nearly eliminated--and if a passenger door does open, you're not thrown into car traffic. /3

Trying something I've always wanted to do: going to a cottage 140 km north of #Montreal without using a car. (Aka #biketothedock) First step: board the métro...
You can take a bike on to the first wagon of the metro... #biketothedock
Looks like I'm not alone... #biketothedock

Thread: I’ve been thinking a lot about Meera’s tweet. The #AirIndia 182 bombing has had a profound impact on my life. Not much time passes without my remembering this tragedy & those that passed - and those that lived, like the parents of @NishaOttawa, who are like family to me.
My connection to this began as someone who had the honour of working to bring some closure to the families with @BobRae48 and @michellessample by reviewing & providing clarity into what went wrong and how to prevent a future attack. We vowed the victims would never be forgotten.
Our report was thorough, and we worked with the families, in partnership with the @rcmpgrcpolice, @csiscanada & many others. We worked to identify problems in our system & recommended the necessary changes. It was one small way we would honour the memory of those that perished.
