 The Cost of Smoking in Canada, 1991
The 1991 smoking-attributable costs by age and sex for ever smokers are presented in Figure 2.
The latter number is estimated by assuming that, on average, those smokers who died in 1991 earned one half of their income at a tax rate of 19.8%.39 Even with this latter amount included, the result is that smokers paid in more than they took out by about $5.4 billion.
During 1991 in Canada, over 41,000 men, women and children died prematurely as a result of smoking at a cost to society and their families of at least $15 billion.

 The Green Lane: Acid rain and the facts
In 2000, Canada's largest contributor of NOx was the transportation sector, which accounted for approximately 60% of all emissions.
Canada still needs to evaluate the sustainability of forest ecosystems for various levels of acid deposition given the new critical loads for terrestrial ecosystems.
Without further controls beyond those identified in the 1991 Canada-U.S. Air Quality Agreement, areas of southern and central Ontario, southern and central Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia would continue to receive mean annual sulphate deposition amounts that exceed their critical loads.

 Projected Smoking-attributable Mortality in Canada, 1991–2000
We estimated the number of deaths attributable to smoking for Canada and for each of the provinces in 1991 and in 2000 to quantify the projected smoking-related burden of mortality.
Population estimates for 1991 were also acquired from Statistics Canada,10 along with projected population estimates for 2000, 11 based on medium migration and fertility rates.
We estimated that a total of 45,064 deaths in Canada were attributable to smoking in 1991 (Table 3).

 High Performance Concrete 1991
The main objective of this investigation was to determine the effects of cyclic heating on the strength of portland cement concrete subjected to high temperature, and to compare the effects of cyclic heating on concrete contaminated with hydraulic fluid and jet fuel with non-contaminated concrete.
The cause of the sudden upsurge of mechanical strength at 12 h in a silica fume/fly ash high-strength concrete is investigated and the microstructural characteristics are determined.
The method for estimating the apparent compressive strength of coarse aggregate in concrete proposed earlier by the authors was applied to high-strength concrete, and the compressive fracture process of the concrete was discussed by examining the occurrence and growth of microcracks in concrete.

 Fiber Reinforced Concrete 1991
The fibers inhibit plastic settlement (settling and separating of the aggregate), reduce permeability in the concrete, are non-corrosive, non-magnetic and alkaline resistant, and result in a smooth, non-hairy surface.
The performance of steel fiber reinforced concrete under flexural fatigue loading was examined in terms of fiber content (0.5 to 1.5 percent by volume), fiber aspect ratio (47 to 100), and fiber type (4 types).
The effects of latex modification and steel fiber reinforcement on the impact resistance and flexural strength and toughness of concrete materials were investigated.

During the 1980's, the decrease of wintering geese in the Chesapeake appeared to result from an 11% decrease in average survival from 1963-74 to 1984-88 (Hestbeck 1994a).

 It's not just the weather that's cooler in Canada
And Canada has strict gun control laws, which means that the criminals must all be heavily armed, the law-abiding civilians helpless and the government on the verge of a massive confiscation campaign.
As a result, Canada's government isn't influenced by large, well-organized religious groups and thus has more in common with those of Scandinavia than those of the United States, or, say, Iran.
