    The Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation will be built in St. Peters Bay, giving researchers at the 45,000-square-foot facility access to wetlands, forests and coastal habitats in the area. The federal and provincial governments are contributing a combined $9.7 million, the University of Prince Edward Island will provide $4.8 million and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is contributing $4 million. Research from the centre is meant to inform new green technologies, although the government did not say what exactly the facility would be studying or provide details of its R&D plans. (Canadian Press)
