Elizabeth May talks fossil fuels, pipelines and selling out the climate in Alberta 13.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga What would have Elizabeth May have done in Rachel Notley's shoes?  The leader of the Green Party of Canada says she would have summoned up the memory of Peter Lougheed, founder of Alberta's 44-year Progressive Conservative dynasty, but not the way the province's first NDP premier has. "I think that Albertans are reasonable," May said during a short, 15-minute interview before she gave a talk with students and faculty at The King's University in Edmonton Friday. "If you present the facts, and say, 'Look, we had this plan from Peter Lougheed, let's revisit it," she argued, Albertans and other Canadians could find common ground.  Notley took a different road, with which the member of Parliament for Saanich and the Islands disagrees profoundly, describing Alberta's approach "an abdication of responsibility." To the right of Ralph Klein on oil? "If I had been her adviser, and I certainly tried to communicate this to her, given the political landscape, I would have sought out reclaiming the ...

Canada talks democracy while U.S. eyes Venezuela's oil 14.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
World Maybe my Spanish isn't good enough, but on a quick read-through of the Venezuelan constitution I couldn't find the section where it specified that Venezuela's president would be chosen by Canada. I'm sure the section must be in there, however, because Canada exercised that power last week in recognizing Juan Guaido as Venezuela's interim president -- even though the Venezuelan people had chosen Nicolas Maduro in national elections last year. The Trudeau government, assuming a leadership role as host of the "Lima Group," explained that Maduro is not legitimate because the national elections he won were flawed, allowing the presidency to fall to Guaido, the head of the national assembly. (Similarly, once it has been established that the 2016 U.S. elections were flawed by Russian meddling, we can expect the Trudeau government to recognize Nancy Pelosi as the legitimate president of the United States.) The turmoil in Venezuela has faded from the news somewhat this week, but the real action is just ...
