Trudeau should now work with NDP and Greens on a progressive agenda 22.10.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's plea for progressives to vote strategically -- echoed by many voices on social media -- appeared to work on election day.  Trudeau will remain prime minister, with a strong minority of seats in the House -- 157, thirteen short of a majority -- even though his party dropped by six points, to second place in the popular vote.  The Liberals lost seats in almost every part of the country, with the significant exception of Ontario. The unpopular Doug Ford Conservative government in Ontario helped win the election for Trudeau's federal Liberals. Andrew Scheer's Conservatives picked up more than 20 seats, mostly in the West, where they swept Saskatchewan and won every seat in Alberta, save one for the NDP in Edmonton Strathcona.  Nationwide, the Conservatives got a bit more than a third of the popular vote, about a quarter million votes more than the Liberals. Based on the popular vote, Scheer is claiming some sort of moral victory. That and 25 cents won't get you ...

Over 10,000 people took to the streets, marching through downtown demanding action on climate change.  The day started with a march. March organizers asked Indigenous community members to lead the march to acknowledge the work they have done to advocate for air, land and water, and for their rights to take back their stolen land for decades. People of colour were also called to the front of the march -- in fact, anyone who wasn't Indigenous or a person of colour was asked to move to the back. Even Greta Thunberg herself was not front and centre. The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist was almost inconspicuous as she marched near the back of the line along with other young participants.  Just a few weeks before, on September 27, approximately 4,000 people took part in a climate strike which was also an incredible number of people for a protest in Edmonton. Thunberg's presence drew many ...
