CANADA - Geothermal power projects are proposed at Mount Meager in the Garibaldi volcanic belt, the extension into British Columbia of the subduction related Cascade volcanoes. In Canada, 10-20degrees C groundwater is used directly or with heat pumps to heat more than 30,000 buildings, including Carleton University in Ottawa and factories in Nova Scotia (using water from the flooded Springhill coal mine of the ballad). In the Yukon geothermal keeps city water pipes from freezing.
