Regardless of Jason Kenney's tweets, the Corporate Mapping Project is uncovering data of value to citizens 1.8.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has a well-known propensity to blame Justin Trudeau for things that were done by Stephen Harper, as the debate over who is responsible for the time it's taken to complete the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project nicely illustrates. So condemning Liberal Prime Minister Trudeau for the $2.5-million federal grant for an academic study of concentrated power and influence in Canada's fossil fuel industry was obviously too tempting to resist for Kenney or whoever does his tweeting for him, even though they ought to have known the grant by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada was approved on Conservative PM Harper's watch. Quietly deleting the tweet -- "why did the Trudeau Liberals give $2.5 million to a left wing special interest group to attack our energy industry?" -- without acknowledging the error or apologizing when it prompted a flurry of corrections on social media is pretty much standard operating procedure for Kenney's ...

On 'unalienable' human rights 15.7.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Mercedes Allen On July 8, the U.S. State Department  announced the launch  of a Commission on Unalienable Rights, which is intended to rethink and reshape how human rights laws are applied around the world. This commission was deemed necessary to ensure that "human rights discourse not be corrupted or hijacked or used for dubious or malignant purposes," though in that  founding statement , the department failed to explain how this was supposedly happening, or who was said to be hijacking said discourse. Reporting  about this development  immediately  raised  concerns  that the commission's mandate could negatively impact and specifically target  LGBTQ human rights protections , and there could be dire ramifications for  reproductive rights , sex-based rights, and the rights of migrants as well. Although the wording of the announcement is vague to a degree, religious conservatives  clearly expect  the project "to address concerns about religious freedom and abortion," at the least. In  announcing  the ...

One way to decolonize this Canada Day 27.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Doreen Nicoll In 2017, I wrote that I would not be celebrating  Canada's 150th birthday . Instead, I encouraged settlers to read, watch, or listen to an Indigenous viewpoint each week for the rest of the year in order to work towards meaningful reconciliation with the true founding Nations of this land. Then, in 2018, I checked in to see how settlers were doing and to offer a list of books, documentaries, movies and music that could help them on their  truth and reconciliation  journey. Well, July 1 is here again and I'm still unable to celebrate Canada's birthday so long as celebrations ignore the reality that the creation of this nation meant the demise of the Indigenous nations that were living and thriving here for generations before first contact and colonization. And because Canada and Canadians continue to journey down a path that fails to acknowledge our history of genocide, systemic racism, broken treaties, and dearth of meaningful remedial action that's needed before true reconciliation can ...

The Pope says global warming is real. What will publicly pious carbon-tax hating Catholics like Jason Kenney do? 17.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Turns out you really can't serve God and Mammon! Who knew? Conservative Alberta was reeling over the weekend at Friday's news from Rome that Pope Francis, leader of 1.3 billion Catholics, has declared global warming to be a real thing and putting a price on carbon to be "essential" to saving the planet. At a closed-door meeting of the Vatican's Academy of Sciences, a concept that at some points in the Church's history would have been oxymoronic, His Holiness sternly lectured the CEOs of Royal Dutch Shell, Eni, BP, Repsol, Conoco Phillips, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and executives of sundry investment funds to get with the program and stop standing in the way of planetary salvation. This has to be causing some consternation in the circles closest to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, the "former WASP" and convert to Roman Catholicism who for many years has been portraying himself as more Catholic than the pope. Up to now, this may have appeared compatible with the premier's crusade against carbon ...

Following public reaction, Edmonton Public Library drops plan to cut pages' wages 14.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Please chip in to support rabble's election 2019 coverage.  Support  rabble.ca  today for as little as $1 per month! Acknowledging negative feedback received by Edmonton Public Library about its plan to reduce pay rates for youth pages in line with the United Conservative Party government's cuts to the minimum wage, EPL Chief Executive Officer Pilar Martinez said today the library would maintain current student pay rates. In an official statement published on the library system's website, Martinez said that while such changes would normally be part of bargaining for a new collective agreement with its staff union, EPL and the Civic Service Union 52 have struck a deal to keep the old wage rates in place. "Fortunately, EPL has not implemented this proposed change, and after further discussion, EPL and CSU 52 have come to an agreement to maintain current student page wages rates until negotiation of the new collective agreement is complete," the statement said. "As a result, there will ...

Hiding behind UCP youth minimum wage cut, Edmonton Public Library slashes library pages' pay 13.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Please chip in to support rabble's election 2019 coverage.  Support  rabble.ca  today for as little as $1 per month! Using the wording of its collective agreement with Civic Service Union 52 as an excuse, and the United Conservative government's minimum wage reduction for students under 18 as the trigger, Edmonton Public Library is handing its youth pages pay cuts of $2.30 to $2.50 per hour. This is pretty shameful for an institution whose mission is supposedly to cater to society's most vulnerable and which nurtures a public image as a major contributor to our regional community. But, gee, I guess the opportunity to squeeze its most vulnerable employees was just too much to resist when the Kenney government introduced its disgraceful $13-per-hour "youth minimum wage," a 13-per-cent pay cut of $2 from the $15-per-hour minimum wage instituted by the NDP. But the UCP's generous supporters in the fast-food industry -- a group that we expect to be more ruthless than public libraries -- ...
