After Pope called residential schools ‘genocide,’ House of Commons should too: NDP MPOTTAWA — A New Democrat member of Parliament said Tuesday she hopes all of her colleagues will recognize the residential schools system as genocide, now that Pope Francis has used the term. During his six-day visit to Canada last week, Pope Francis apologized multiple times for the "evil" of what happened inside residential schools. The Catholic Church ran the majority of the residential schools in Canada. A spokeswoman for fellow candidate Jean Charest said he agreed with the finding that residential schools amounted to a "cultural genocide." Rural Ontario MP and leadership contestant Scott Aitchison said Pope Francis' recognition of the system as a genocide "is an important step in reconciliation."

Hockey Canada released a statement in May that initially described the complainant as not being co-operative in the London police investigation. Hockey Canada's investigation re-opened last month amid intense public scrutiny and said it learned the woman would now provide a statement.

Hockey Canada's board of directors agreed to pay the claimant up to $3.5 million, the organization told MPs last week.

Spain’s leading scientific research body was targeted by a cyberattack that national authorities suspect had its origin in Russia, the country’s science ministry said Tuesday. Spain’s science ministry said the Spanish National Research Council was targeted by the ransomware attack on July 16-17. A preliminary analysis by Spain’s cybersecurity authorities said that it appears that no sensitive or confidential information was extracted. In a statement, the ministry said that the cyberattack was similar to others carried out against NASA in the United States and the Max Planck Institute in Germany. Even though it appears the attack failed, the security protocols activated to ensure that it was unsuccessful have left several of the council’s research centers off-line.

Fluorinated ‘forever chemicals,’ known as such because that do not naturally break down in the environment, are increasing in one of the most remote regions of Antarctica, researchers have discovered. Among their findings, the shorter chain compound, perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA), was shown to have increased significantly from 2000 to 2017. “For this particular study we wanted to get away from the coastal margins and be up in the troposphere to get that really global background signal,” he said. The island is extremely remote and has no permanent residents, but researchers sampling ice cores there, also detected high levels of CFC-replacements. “They were able to detect more chemicals then we could, simply because our site is so remote there’s only a small handful of chemicals that manage to make it,” Halsall said.
