Climate protection is not a partisan issue..

July 17, 2019

Media and politicians often regard environmentalists as a special interest group with political priorities served by “green” parties. If a Green politician isn’t present or allowed to participate in a public debate, journalists tend to eschew environmental questions, considering them the purview of the absent party. It’s absurd to think an issue like climate change belongs to one party. It should be the highest priority for every politician and candidate and should receive daily media attention.

‘This Pipeline Will Not Be Built,’ Indigenous and Climate Leaders Tell Trudeau After Canada Approves Trans Mountain Expansion..

June 19, 2019

“Canada deserves a Green New Deal, not more fossil fuel projects.”

That’s how many climate campaigners—including Clayton Thomas-Muller of 350.org—responded after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday announced his federal government approved an expansion of the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline, just a day after the country’s House of Commons voted to declare a climate emergency. Ahead of the anticipated move, critics charged that green-lighting the project would make an “absolute mockery” of the emergency declaration.
