Recognition of Indigenous rights or termination of rights framework? 8.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Joyce Green Gina Starblanket The Trudeau government is committed to table legislation on a Recognition of Rights Framework for Indigenous Rights this fall. While not yet finalized, the initial drafts are not encouraging. Beware of federal politicians bearing beads and trinkets. This framework is not emancipatory, and, despite effusive press releases from the prime minister, has nothing to do with reconciliation. The feds are proposing a framework that functions like a cage, containing Indigenous nations and governments within a legal apparatus that assumes all sovereignty and jurisdiction belongs to the federal and provincial governments. The cage provides Indigenous nations with little more than space to administer federally approved governance within legislated boundaries. No land commitments accompany the framework, and its principles fall far below the floor set by Canadian constitutional law, Indigenous laws, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The third ...

Trudeau gaslights Canadian women and ignores their safety 26.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Two weeks ago, a new study by the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability confirmed the state of domestic terrorism against women in this land. A woman is murdered by a man every other day in Canada, with at least 78 known acts of femicide up to July 1 (the numbers are likely higher given that it is based largely on media reports). A disproportionate number of those murdered were Indigenous women. That very same day, there was audible silence from the self-proclaimed "feminist" Trudeau government. Instead of declaring that the time had come to finally launch a National Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls (NAP), Trudeau was in Latvia, trying to match the toxic masculinity of Donald Trump by whipping out hundreds of millions of dollars to continue funding Canadian troops to engage in endless war games through the year 2023 against a non-existent threat to the people of this land. Indeed, instead of showing solidarity with Canadian women, Trudeau chose ...

Ontario fightback: Lessons from organizing workshops across Ontario 18.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Maya Bhullar In the wake of the recent Ontario elections  Briarpatch Magazine , the Council of Canadians , Solidarity Ottawa and the Fight for $15 and Fairness  organized panels with grassroots organizers in Toronto and Ottawa asking "what's next."  I listened to all three panels and have captured quotes around six themes to provide a "teaser" and share some great points. I encourage you to scroll down to the end of this article to find links which allow you to listen to each panel. The thoughtful and generous insights from inspiring frontline organizers Lindsay (Beze) and Vanessa Gray , Felicia Samuel , John Clarke , JP Hornick , Tori Cress , Pam Frache , Deena Ladd , Doug Nesbitt ,  Karen Cocq , Martin Lukacs  and others are worth listening to.  The next four years will be an important test for Ontarians. We will either see the most regressive policies Ontario has ever seen or we will build a movement which defeats anyone who is attacking the land, environment, and people in this province.    ​We must ...

CLAC's big role in the Trans Mountain expansion: More political pipeline problems in the making? 1.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga If Canadians are going to have to pay the $10 to $15-billion cost of expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline, it's important they aren't bound by side deals that are not in the public interest made by the project's former corporate owner. When Kinder Morgan Inc. was masterminding the controversial megaproject to expand the pipeline so it could carry diluted bitumen from Alberta's oilsands to the West Coast, it was understandable that few Canadians paid much attention to how the Texas corporation managed its affairs. But now that the project has been declared a matter of national interest so vital it must be taken over and run by the government of Canada, backstopped by the government of Alberta, all that has changed. And it is quite clearly not in the public interest that the bulk of the work on the project be done by members of the so-called Christian Labour Association of Canada, colloquially known as CLAC. To say CLAC is controversial in labour circles is an understatement. It is ...

Trudeau Liberals call the opposition's bluff and 'nationalize' (sort of) the Trans Mountain pipeline 30.5.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga OK, so Ottawa's going to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion and run it as a Crown corporation. That's a good start. (Caveats to follow.) Theoretically, it could ensure transparency and accountability, even responsibility, to a business in which the private sector adamantly refuses to deliver any such thing. Possibly, if there's an actual economic case for building a pipeline, it'll result in some of the line's profit remaining in Canada to benefit Canadians, for example by helping to develop cleaner alternative energy technologies, instead of being piped directly to the United States to line the pockets of The Richest Man in Houston* and his fellow Texans at Kinder Morgan Inc. As an aside, this raises the question of whether Ottawa is paying too much. That requires further analysis -- I'll get back to you about it sometime, maybe even before August when the deal is supposed to be done. In the meantime, though, I'm sure you'll have the opportunity to read a metric tonne ...
