So that's not available to you? Bitcoin is a decentralized system. And so if you hold your bitcoins, like I did, in a completely independent wallet — so not with an exchange, not with a bank, not with any kind of institution, but yourself — then it's just like cash. It's like gold. If you lose it, you lose it.
There's no recovery process for that. Since then, a lot of people have come up with all kinds of clever solutions like, you know, metal wallets where you can put down your secret keys and things like that. But most of that didn't exist back then. Back then, you had to kind of come up with your own solution.
And apparently I didn't do a very good job of that. We know that this has been a very good year for bitcoin. How many people do you think are not able to access their fortunes? And so you can imagine it's probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, who are in my situation. But I think they said it was 20 per cent of all the bitcoin accounts are owned by people who can't access them [according to the cryptocurrency data firm Chainalysis].
Yeah, I think a good chunk of that, especially, like, some of the larger ones, were very early wallets. So, you know, at the time, it might have been less money. But of course, you know, once you can't access it and the price goes up, the number just gets bigger and bigger. So what is it like for you? After I realized I lost the coins, I was completely destroyed.
Like, when I think back to that, it's hard to even wrap my head around how I felt that those couple of weeks. And I tried everything. You know, just what you imagine you would do if you lost that sort of money. And then after a couple of weeks of that, I got to a point where I started to realize that the chances of recovery were not very good. And we'll get into, you know, what that last little glimmer of hope is in a moment. So I sort of had to make a decision, right?
And I chose the latter. There is a way to take a scanning electron microscope and take apart the physical chip and literally go into the the silicon chip and take away layer by layer, like a few atoms thick, and then read out the actual memory cells. And then with that technique, you should be able to bypass that limit of 10 tries, and then you can have a supercomputer try, you know, billions of passwords per second.
Now, the problem is that, first of all, that requires a specialized laboratory. It's very expensive. Only a few people in the world can do it. Back then, it definitely wasn't worth it. I think now it probably is worth it. But it still requires a lot of organizing and logistics, and even then it's not guaranteed.
Now that this has been in the news, I'm getting lots and lots of people reaching out, some of whom are the types of people who have access to that kind of equipment and the kind of expertise needed. And so I'm talking to them to see, you know, if we should attempt a recovery and, like, what it would cost, etcetera. So what happens? The company said it has already mined more than 3, bitcoins in Alberta, including at its much smaller site in Drumheller.
On average, the Medicine Hat facility mines about 20 bitcoins per day. The bitcoin mining facility is located right beside the city of Medicine Hat's new natural gas-fired power plant and four wind turbines are a short distance away. The bitcoin plant can consume more than 60 megawatts of power, more than 10 times more electricity used by any other facility in the city, according to the mayor.
That's why, in the event of a summer heat wave, the city has provisions in place to pull the plug on the electricity it provides to Hut 8, so there won't be any blackouts for residents, according to the mayor. Medicine Hat owns its own natural gas and electricity generation and distribution businesses. The city leases the land to Hut 8 and the facility employs 40 full-time workers.
For more than a century, the city has attracted business by offering low-cost energy, and the mayor said this project is no different. They need gas-fired generation and we have it in spades. Environmental groups are concerned by the sheer amount of energy consumed by bitcoin mining, especially in places like Medicine Hat where most of the electricity is produced by fossil fuels. The bitcoin system is designed, so only a limited number of the cryptocurrency can be mined everyday.

Calgarian Ben Perrin runs an educational YouTube channel focused on teaching people about bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and is the marketing director for a bitcoin exchange. Working in the cryptocurrency industry means he's been targeted by hopeful scammers before. He sent the money to Bitcoin Venezuela, which helps people there buy food using the cryptocurrency, as the Venezuelan bolivar has collapsed.
The Instagram account the scammer was using has since been deleted. Scammers, he says, take advantage of the fact that bitcoin transfers, like money, are irreversible. You can't get that back unless you ask nicely and odds are if you're dealing with a scammer, they're not going to do that," he said.
You could potentially be creating a target for yourself, where they may become frustrated with you and they already know your phone number or they already know your email," said Sgt. Matt Frederiksen of the Calgary police economic crime unit fraud team. People who believe they've been scammed should contact the non-emergency number for the local police, Frederiksen said. Those who have received a suspicious message can report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
Cryptocurrency fraud can be tricky to investigate, as the operations are often international. Perrin said while this instance worked out, he doesn't plan on becoming the Robin Hood of avenging bitcoin fraudsters. But there is value in letting newcomers know how this technology works and advising them to exercise caution.
One bitcoin mining facility near Drumheller, Alta. And many people have chosen to lend their home computing power to bitcoin mining operations as well, earning between dozens and hundreds of dollars a month above their power bills. And that number is rapidly growing. The first thing you need to buy cryptocurrency is a wallet — and not the leather kind you keep in your pocket.
A wallet is a software program that stores private and public keys that are used to send and receive cryptocurrency. Funds are sent to a public key — that's kind of like an email address an e-transfer is sent to. But while you can trade between Canadian dollars and cryptocurrency on an online exchange, you should never leave your money sitting in one like you would with a bank, said Perrin.
And it's much less safe than a bank, as exchanges are newer and they have varying levels of security. While bitcoin initially gained notoriety for being used to purchase illegal goods like drugs on the dark web, it has a variety of legitimate uses. In Calgary, an office building accepts lease payments in cryptocurrency, and another company will let you pay for your renovations in bitcoin or ether. Yes, even though cryptocurrency is touted as an anonymous investment, the Canada Revenue Agency's rules still apply to all digital currency transactions as it's considered a commodity.

Here's everything you need to know Cryptocurrency is big business, but for many not in the tech sphere, it's still a big unknown.
For countries with capital controls, money denominated in bitcoin flies through the electronic ether without reporting where it started or where it ends. From a pure free market analysis, bitcoin may be the ideal currency. According to Canadian tax law, people who earn money in bitcoin are required to report the value of that income. As bitcoins rise in value, Canadians are supposed to report those increases as capital gains in their taxes when they sell. But if those currency units are anonymous, they are hard for the Canada Revenue Agency to track, meaning dishonest bitcoin owners and traders will be tempted to avoid taxes.
Another feature of truly free markets is their volatility. Even the world's freest securities markets are regulated. Among other provisions, most have what are called circuit breakers to limit sudden perilous changes in prices, allowing cooler heads to prevail before a damaging crash. More analysis from Don Pittis.

I mean, hundreds of millions of dollars are now sort of locked up Where does it go? Who gets it? Because I'm not selling those Bitcoins, that means that there's a little bit less supply in the market Other holders, in theory, profit. Although you have to imagine, like because of this risk, maybe there are people that maybe don't invest in bitcoin because they're worried about this.
And so maybe that kind of makes up for it and kind of that reduces the price. So, again, that's probably almost a better question for an economist to opine on. There are those who are saying that this now just belies the value of investing in this kind of bitcoin.
For all the advantages it has, that you don't have to deal with institutions and governments, that obviously it has its pitfalls. And so are you one of those? Are you one of the people who think that maybe this kind of currency is not a good idea? This experience has definitely changed my opinion about bitcoin in terms of I was one of those people that was very excited about, you know, everyone can be their own bank and that sort of thing.
A phone call placed to the doctor's home listing went unanswered Tuesday. According to an August update on the website of Zion Lutheran Church, the church obtained a no trespassing order for Ulrich after the pastor received a disturbing letter. Members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' enforcement group and special agents from the state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension also responded.
The clinic is set off at the edge of Buffalo near an old red barn with flaking paint. Dozens of emergency vehicles and law enforcement officers carrying guns were on the scene, setting up a perimeter. TV footage showed little activity at the clinic itself. Officers went in and out of the home wearing rubber gloves. Several neighbours who declined to give their names described Ulrich as argumentative and said they tried to avoid him.
He said Ulrich helped him build a shed over the summer and would often come over to sit at his fire ring in the evenings to chat. Rohde said Ulrich was unemployed, living on disability.

Museum is resigning. In a news release, the board says Lohman's departure was "mutually agreed" to be in the best interests of the organization as it "addresses current internal issues," without elaborating. The museum said Lohman was not available for comment this week and board chair Daniel Muzyka would not be available until Thursday.
Muzyka recently told Global News that the results of an internal survey triggered by the Public Service Agency were being reviewed by the board and management, but he wouldn't provide details on its findings. He said the museum was hiring a diversity inclusion consultant and implementing mandatory education programs for employees with a focus on trust-building, working with Indigenous people and culture training.
Muzyka will serve as acting CEO until a replacement is found for Lohman, who is described by the board in the release as "an internationally recognized expert in museums. OTTAWA — A judge has rejected a request from firearms owners to suspend a sweeping ban on many gun models while their full arguments against the prohibitions are considered by the court.
The federal government outlawed a wide range of firearms by cabinet order in May, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not hunting or sport shooting. The ban covers some 1, models and variants of what the government considers assault-style weapons, meaning they can no longer be legally used, sold or imported. The measure has met with stiff criticism from some firearms owners and the federal Conservatives, who question the value of the ban.
She said Canadians wishing to engage in these activities can choose from a large range of non-restricted firearms that may reasonably be used for these purposes. Fuller arguments on the constitutionality of the regulations are expected to take place over the next several months. In joining the Rams, Washington also became the NFL's first Black player after 12 seasons of unofficial but intractable racial segregation.
The seven-minute clip is correct in the details it includes. That Washington played with Jackie Robinson is a fact, so is the public campaign, fronted by Black journalist Halley Harding, that resulted in the Rams signing him. It's also true that he first played for the Rams in the fall of , half a year before Robinson suited up for the Brooklyn Dodgers. That's a significant detail: portraying the NFL, last to segregate and first to reintegrate, as more progressive than Major League Baseball.
But that version omits a lot, and filling in the missing details changes the message. The pair roomed together on the road, faced racism on and off the field, and left their short NFL careers traumatized by bigotry.
But if research leads you to advocates like Harding, it should also take you to Washington's one-sentence summary of life on pro football's racial frontier. Super Bowl LV took place in the first Black History Month since the slaying of George Floyd prompted governments and individuals to confront racism in new ways. This year Target is selling Black History Month t-shirts, and the UFC is positioning this month's fight cards, with Black athletes in main events, as a celebration of Black history.
But if the phrase "reckoning on race" entails organizations wrestling with their racist pasts, centring the truth, and moving toward equity, the inclusions and omissions in this version of Washington's story do something different. They seem less about confronting ugly history than rehabbing the league's image.
And it's CBS's prerogative, since it spent big on broadcast rights and had an afternoon's worth of airtime to fill. A Washington feature, even riddled with holes, beats one more story about the bromance between Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. But it missed an opportunity to dig into deeper truths at play. Washington's experience contradicts the myth that racism recedes with time. Both the NFL and big league baseball started out integrated, gradually became all-white, and then stayed segregated.
Washington wasn't the NFL's first Black player; the league's colour line was just over a decade old when Washington crossed it. But if you think the passive march of time cures racism, remember that activism helped get Washington signed, and that racism persisted after he arrived. Hitting the glass ceiling The full details of Washington's story also undermine the idea that winning, and the financial windfalls it brings, are enough incentive to force pro sports teams to find the best candidates and put them in a position to succeed.
We know how that story goes in Canada. Herb Carnegie flourished in the Quebec Senior League but NHL executives could never find his phone number, even as they signed his white teammates. And we know how the story unfolds in the contemporary NFL where, every off-season, qualified Black assistant coaches butt heads with the glass ceiling. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles hired Nick Sirianni, who stammered through his introductory news conference and brought in a string of white assistants.
The only Black candidate to earn a head coaching job this cycle was David Culley, who inherits the terminally dysfunctional Houston Texans, and whose promotion we could charitably label "backhanded. Sued over payouts In August, retired running back Najeh Davenport and defensive end Kevin Henry sued the league, arguing that they were denied concussion settlement payouts because they are Black.
And last week ABC News reported that several doctors in charge of assessing players for the cognitive decline that could qualify them for settlement money had grown frustrated with NFL guidelines they say made them factor a patient's race into test scores. The practice, known as "race norming," was invented as a way to avoid over-diagnosing Black students as learning-disabled, correcting for the segregated, under-resourced schools they might have attended.
But doctors mentioned in the ABC report complain that the practice handicaps Black patients' test scores. It's tougher to argue NFL-related head trauma caused low scores when race norming suggests Black people are prone to score poorly anyway, and the uncertainty can limit Black players' access to settlement cash.
The league insists it doesn't force doctors to consider race when evaluating potential settlement claims, but the ABC report points out that guidelines sent to doctors recommend a "full demographic correction" when assessing NFL retirees.
If the allegations sound ugly, it's because they are. At best, it's a misunderstanding between the league and doctors over the meaning of "full demographic correction," an honest mistake that disproportionately harms Black NFLers. And at worst, the league's recommending a policy it knows will limit settlement money for Black retirees living with cognitive impairment. Either way, it's more unsettling evidence of the extent to which race, and racism still shape the modern NFL. The pre-Super Bowl feature on Washington portrayed his signing as a happy ending, but that move merely allowed Black people to enter a playing field that the facts tell us still isn't level.
An economic analysis released by the Alberta NDP suggests a more substantive investment in the federal wage top-up program could have led to a GDP increase worth hundreds of millions and created nearly 2, jobs. Leader Rachel Notley presented the findings of the analysis in Calgary on Tuesday, and questioned why the UCP had not taken full advantage of the eligible funding for Alberta. They risk their health every single day," Notley said.
She also said that the party is working with the federal government to access the remainder of the funds. Since that time, we have continued to negotiate with Ottawa on how to deliver the remainder of funds available to Albertans. We will have more details to share in the very near future. The remaining funds would have been cost-shared at a ratio, and could be used to pay top-up wages to health-care workers, correctional officers, first responders and other essential workers on the front lines of the COVID pandemic.
Its stimulative effects would have included an increase in spending by households, or increased savings, that encourage a higher level of sustained economic output or investment, according to the analysis. While Calgary economist Trevor Tombe told CBC News that he does not endorse fiscal multiplier methodology — expressing concern that it can sometimes be used to arrive at whatever effect one wants — he said the NDP used the model sensibly.
So [the NDP's] numbers are sound," Tombe said. Notley acknowledged the UCP would be providing an update about the wage top-up soon, but still reserved strong words for the party. Energy Minister Sonya Savage, after overwhelming public opposition, on Monday brought back a policy that keeps open-pit coal mines out of most of the province's Rockies and foothills.
She added that her government made the policy more rigorous. Some suggest that directive gives plenty of scope for exactly the kind of activity Savage says she has blocked. Bankes pointed out that Savage's promise to block mountaintop removal mines — which remove a peak to expose coal — doesn't affect one proposal to do exactly that near the Crowsnest Pass.
That plan by Benga Mining Ltd. Nor does the reinstatement of the coal policy guarantee the Rockies won't see strip or open-pit mines. The directive to the regulator only says mines on those sensitive landscapes must "not involve mountaintop removal. In the directive, Savage also points out that surface mining is not banned, but rather "would not normally be considered. It could have cancelled the coal exploration leases but chose not to. He said the decision follows a pattern of reversals under Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservative government, including not closing any provincial parks after saying it would and flip-flopping on whether to sanction caucus members who travelled outside Canada over Christmas.
That doesn't inspire trust, he suggested. He did the mea culpa. He didn't send someone else out. Alberta is already holding separate consultations as part of attempts to write regional land-use plans, he noted. Those talks have the legal weight of legislation behind them, but the role of public feedback on coal mines is unclear. I'm not convinced that we're any further ahead. Clair long-term care home is nearly out of the woods as residents and staff have received second shots of the Moderna vaccine.
The Village at St. According to provincial data on the outbreak, 57 residents have died as of Tuesday. In a news release Tuesday, Schlegel Villages, which operates the home, said all eligible residents have gotten the second dose of the vaccine.
In addition to that, residents, staff and essential caregivers who were not able to get a first dose have now also received one. The home said residents at its Aspen Lake location are now able to resume some activities including small, safely-distanced group activities and mealtimes together. The biggest issues at the time included under-staffing, as so many were off sick, and poor communication to family members.
Three weeks later, as the home began to get the spread of the disease under control, hospital staff left. Clair will enable them to join Aspen Lake in exiting their outbreak in the near future," Potts said in a news release. Health Minister Tyler Shandro says the tests will screen asymptomatic staff at all long-term care and supportive living facilities. Shandro says the tests are critical to keeping COVID from spreading and will begin as early as next week.
Rapid tests have been used since December at hospitals, homeless shelters and long-term care facilities deemed to be potential outbreak sites. The tests give results within an hour, allowing for quicker tracking and quarantining. Shandro said two-thirds of those deaths have been in long-term care or designated supportive living facilities. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's chief medical officer of health, reported new infections Tuesday.
There were 5, active cases. In total in Alberta, 1, people have died from the virus. OTTAWA — Senators have voted to give the federal government 18 months to expand access to medical assistance in dying to people suffering solely from mental illnesses. They voted Tuesday to amend Bill C-7, which proposes an explicit, blanket prohibition on assisted dying in cases involving only mental illness but would expand access to other intolerably suffering people who are not near the natural end of their lives.
The amendment puts an month time limit on the mental illness exclusion, intended to give the federal government, along with provinces, territories and medical associations, time to come up with appropriate guidelines and safeguards. Until the exclusion is lifted, senators also agreed to another amendment to clarify that it will not apply to people suffering from neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.
Justice Minister David Lametti has said it was not the government's intention to exclude such disorders. The amendment to make that crystal clear was approved by senators on a voice vote. The sunset clause on the mental illness exclusion was proposed by Sen. Stan Kutcher, a psychiatrist who now sits in the Independent Senators Group. He argued that the exclusion is unconstitutional, violating the right to equal treatment under the law, regardless of physical and mental disability, as guaranteed in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Moreover, Kutcher argued that it stigmatizes people with mental illnesses, suggesting that they don't have the mental capacity to decide when their suffering has become intolerable and that their suffering is somehow less than that caused by physical illnesses. It cannot be negated or delegitimized by anyone else's valuation of that suffering," Kutcher told the Senate. Their suffering must be taken just as seriously as we take the suffering of those who request MAID medical assistance in dying for any other medical condition.
Six senators, including the government's representative in the Senate, Marc Gold, and the bill's sponsor, Sen. Lametti has argued that the exclusion is necessary because there is no consensus among psychiatrists on whether people suffering solely from mental illnesses should ever be allowed access to assisted dying.
That's because the trajectory of mental illnesses is often unpredictable, making it difficult to determine if a patient's condition might improve, he has said. Moreover, Lametti has pointed out that a wish to die is often a symptom of a mental illness. But Kutcher argued that the same complexities can apply in assessing patients with physical conditions. He noted that the bill would allow assisted dying for people suffering from a combination of mental and physical disorders. An overwhelming majority of senators supported the amendment, with many saying they'd prefer to see the mental illness exclusion repealed altogether but accepted Kutcher's sunset clause as a reasonable compromise.
However, Conservative Sen. Denise Batters argued strenuously against the amendment. This means that at least some Canadians will have their lives ended before they can access the treatments or options that could very well relieve their suffering and give them years to live.
Joan Bryden, The Canadian Press. The detailed and emotional presentation by Democrats was followed by meandering and occasionally confrontational arguments from the Trump defence team, which insisted that his remarks were protected by the First Amendment and asserted that he cannot be convicted as a former president. The senators sitting as jurors, many of whom fled for safety themselves the day of the attack, watched and listened, unable to avoid the jarring video of Trump supporters battling past police to storm the halls, Trump flags waving.

Six Republicans joined the Democrats. Security remained extremely tight at the Capitol on Tuesday, a changed place after the attack, fenced off with razor wire and with armed National Guard troops on patrol.
The nine House managers walked across the shuttered building to prosecute the case before the Senate. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden would not be watching the trial of his predecessor. With senators gathered as the court of impeachment, sworn to deliver impartial justice, the trial started with the Democratic House managers' gripping recollections, as they described police officers maimed in the chaos and rioters parading in the very chamber where the trial was being held.
Louisiana Sen. Though they will almost certainly win Trump's acquittal — by virtue of the composition of the Senate — they nonetheless face a challenge of defanging the emotion from a trial centred on events that remain raw and visceral, even for Republicans. At one pivotal point, Raskin told his personal story of bringing his family to the Capitol the day of the riot, to witness the certification of the Electoral College vote, only to have his daughter and son-in-law hiding in an office, fearing for their lives.
Joe Neguse, D-Colo. On the vote, six Republicans joined with Democrats pursue the trial, just one more than on a similar vote last week. But the total of 46 was still far from the two-thirds threshold of 67 votes that would be needed for conviction. It appears unlikely that the House prosecutors will call witnesses, in part because the senators were witnesses themselves. At his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, Trump has declined a request to testify. Presidential impeachment trials have been conducted only three times before, leading to acquittals for Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and then Trump last year.
Patrick Leahy of Vermont. The trial is expected to continue into the weekend. Trump's second impeachment trial is expected to diverge from the lengthy, complicated affair of a year ago. In that case, Trump was charged with having privately pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on Biden, then a Democratic rival for the presidency. The Democratic-led House impeached the president swiftly, one week after the attack. Five people died, including a woman shot by police inside the building and a police officer who died the next day of his injuries.

Several news outlets and politicians have accused the CBC of liberal bias in its news coverage, including the National Post ,  former prime minister Stephen Harper  and columnist Barbara Amiel.

He said: "Our job — and we take it seriously — is to ensure that the information that we put out is fair and unbiased in everything that we do". In April , the Conservatives accused pollster Frank Graves of giving partisan advice to the Liberal Party of Canada , noting his donations to the party since Graves directed a number of public opinion research projects on behalf of the CBC as well as other media organizations, and also appeared on a number of CBC television programs relating to politics.
An investigation conducted by the CBC ombudsman found no evidence to support these allegations, stating that personal donor history is not relevant to one's objectivity as a pollster. The CBC itself has denied all allegations of bias, saying that "It is the duty of CBC News to inform its viewers across the country about what is happening, without bias or prejudice, and without telling them what to think.
