• RQFTCIMM11 Game 1, Rounds 7-8: greens, greens

    From Mark Brader@21:1/5 to All on Mon Jul 26 02:20:31 2021
    These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2011-05-09,
    and should be interpreted accordingly. All questions were written
    by members of the Misplaced Modifiers, but have been reformatted
    and may have been retyped and/or edited by me. I will reveal the
    correct answers in about 3 days.

    For further information, including an explanation of the """ notation
    that may appear in these rounds, see my recent companion posting on
    "Reposted Questions from the Canadian Inquisition (RQFTCI*)".


    * Game 1, Round 7 - Canadiana Science - Canadian Environmentalists
    and Conservationists

    1. Jack McGinnis passed away in January of """this year""".
    The Toronto resident is credited with the design and pilot
    projects for a simple device that has become an international
    icon of environmental consciousness. What was McGinnis's
    innovation?

    2. This Montreal-born environmental activist is credited with
    founding that city's curbside recycling program. In Edmonton,
    he once locked himself in a safe in Ralph Klein's office to
    protest the province's stand on the Kyoto Accord. In 2000
    he ran a distant but creditable second to Mel Lastman in the
    Toronto mayoralty race. Name him.

    3. In 1971, the Vancouver-based environmental group "Don't Make a
    Wave" chartered a fishing boat called the Phyllis Cormack for a
    seaborne protest. They rechristened the boat, and its new name
    was later also adopted as the name of the group. What was the
    boat's -- and the group's -- new name?

    Please answer #3 before decoding the rot13 for the next two questions.

    Amchitka, Alaska. It was turned back by the US Navy long
    before reaching its destination, but the protest voyage drew
    international attention to its cause. The voyage was protesting
    against *what* happening in Alaska?

    Nuclear testing. (It was alleged that a tsunami could occur, hence
    "Don't make a wave.") 4 for Dan Tilque.

    5. This co-founder of Greenpeace led their first anti-whaling
    campaigns and was named by "Time" as one of the "eco-heroes"
    of the 20th century. He later worked as a commentator for the

    Oil and gas (wells and installations). (He died in 2012.)

    Kathryn Cholette, Joan Russow and, from 2003 to 2006, Jim Harris.
