In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about why taking action in support of Mi’kmaq fishers, and Indigenous struggles everywhere, is so critical. They also talk about seniority in the labour movement, and how eliminating seniority isn’t going to fix systemic racism in the workplace.

  1. In todays CBC headline article it was stated that close to $18 billion was being implemented to prop up the oil industry in Canada and in my own personal opinion this must outrage the true enviormentalist that sees the hypocrisy in supporting the cause of the problem ….Climate change! Air pollution!
    Eventually CBC banned this opinion .

    AWAITING MODERATION When Canada who supported the Paris agreements and I am assuming that they still do? Invests billions to support a dying industry that is now basically understood around the world to contribute to global warming and climate change .How does Justine Trudeau reconcile this with his commitment to the planet? He cannot !

    1. I think it is impossible for any Canadian to proclaim they believed Justine Trudeau was pro oil before he was elected!In fact I think if Trudeau wants to keep his voters who believe the underlying premise that the Canadian oil industry should be shut down in its entirety .He should capitulate to the Americans I think the planet would be at a turning point in reducing fossil fuel dependence if he did. I think if Trudeau suddenly came to the immediate understanding that doing so reduces the possibility of contamination of the Great Lakes beyond any possible repair ,should such a leak take place . I think the Americans are doing the right thing by the planet as a whole and Justine Trudeau needs to capitulate and realise the American frame of thinking at this time in history is ultimately better for the planet. The immediate financial consequences should the Americans get the outcome they desire are inconsequential and an acceptable outcome in reality . Shutting down pipeline 5 is a really good move for the environmentalist and those in power to achieve the goal of making the world oil free.

      I think Justine Trudeau could weather the storm if he where capitulate to the Americans.

    I find myself aligning with the basic understanding that is held by Bill Gates? That government and politicians are in fact inept and incapable of dealing with the issues of climate change based on the fact that it is not a peronally held inner position within themselves or a concern that is held with inner altruism .And because inner altruism on the subject is not being held within politicians it is up to those like Bill Gates and others to set the standards regarding climate change and or others to talk about the subject .It is next to impossible to solve the problem while the word embraces materialism .And because of this the world is in need of a singular world government that limits individual consumption .

    Personally, I think the ideology of socialism for the sake of the environmentally fragile planet should be experimented on the North American society first as they lack inner control on the issue of materialism. While others in poorer countries starve.

    I am ok in principle with what the world elite are trying to achieve in regards too the planets woes with or without politicians who seem incapable of making hard choices. As I think regardless the rich are making the decision for them . « less

    Reply to @Edward H.C Graydon: But I also believe?

    On many ideological issues held by Bill Gates and climate change many are in fact aligned to my own frame of thinking but I think the alignment between Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos makes this probomatic to some degree as most of the worlds side effects based on consumption and materialism stem from his friends business Amazon the same identity that contributes to the global plastics and waste from materialism found in the worlds oceans. So I guess the question is ? Does Bill Gates recognize the issue his friends conglomerate has on the planet as a whole.And is his friendship with Jeff Bezos the meaning of hypocrisy on the subject as I really don’t know ,but I see some reason for concern. « less
