From CBC Newfoundland and Labrador Morning:

The new “canary in the coal mine” Insects are a window to ecological changes in the northThe weather this year may be hard to predict but one thing’s for sure… When the temperature rises, the bugs come out. People in Labrador have noticed even the creepy crawlies are changing. This is exciting news for one group of visitors to Happy Valley – Goose Bay. They’ve come from all over the country to collect insects. Chris Buddle from McGill University is leading the group. Our Tara McLean put on her hiking boots, and followed him through back trails and shrubby terrain near town.
