Nearly a third of Alberta's electorate voted in advance polls -- whatever can it mean? 16.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga One of the mysteries of the 2019 Alberta election campaign that comes to an end with today's election is the truly astonishing number of advance ballots cast. Nearly 700,000 Albertans voted in advance polls. That is close to 30 per cent of the electorate. This is unheard of in Alberta, and almost certainly in the rest of the country as well, where growing voter apathy combined with vote suppression by conservative parties has been situation normal for years. We can speculate about why so many people voted early this year, and what it means, but for the moment at least, speculation is all it is. As a result, for a brief but happy moment, it can mean whatever you want it to! You can say whatever you like about what it means too, and no one can convincingly prove you wrong ... at least until the votes start to be tallied tonight. Accordingly, if you listen to what you hear on social media, conservatives will tell you it is a massive vote against the government and a wave of support for ...

European Parliament elections an opportunity to vote for democracy 16.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
World Europeans go to the polls May 23-26 to elect a new European Parliament. Held every five years since 1979, the ninth direct election of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) promises to be interesting. Now that the Brexit deadline has been extended until October 31, the U.K. will be electing a full slate of MEPs. Euroskeptic-in-chief Nigel Farage, formerly head of the United Kingdom Independence Party, has announced his new Brexit Party will contest the election "to scare the hell out of U.K. MPs" contemplating a second referendum or dithering over a negotiated Brexit agreement with the EU. Will "U.K. Remain" voters have a clear alternative to the party of Nigel Farage? However logical such an option may appear, nothing has yet emerged to suggest it will happen. In February 2016, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and Croatian philosopher Srećko Horvat launched first in Berlin, then in Rome, a Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25). DiEM 25 wants to see a sovereign European ...

Canada is warming faster than we thought. What can we do about it? 4.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Bronwen Tucker While global temperatures have increased 0.8 C since 1948, Canada has seen an increase of 1.7 C -- more than double the global average. And in the Arctic, the warming is happening at a much faster rate of 2.3 C, the Changing Climate report says. A  new report  leaked one day early from Environment and Climate Change Canada shows that Canada is experiencing warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, with Northern Canada heating up at almost three times the global average. The changing climate report was prepared in a similar way to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports, as a synthesis of hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. It included details on a familiar catalogue of the impacts we can expect, not limited to increases in precipitation (particularly in winter), "extreme fire weather" and water supply shortages in summer, threatened freshwater systems, marine ecosystem collapse and a heightened risk of coastal flooding. As the  Toronto Star  noted, the report ...

A generation of right-wing politicians ruins Preston Manning's dream of 'green capitalism' 3.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Let's start with a pop quiz. Who said this? "One of the biggest issues will be the question of how much of current revenue from non-renewable resources should be saved and how those savings should be invested … so that, if the day ever comes that oil and gas isn't as significant as it is now, there's something to replace it." If you thought Rachel Notley, you would be wrong. The answer is Preston Manning, once upon a time the godfather of the Canadian right. He was speaking back in 2006 in an interview with Canadian Business Magazine. Later in the same interview, he noted "there is a growing concern about environmental conservation and I think the question is not whether you make a major effort to improve environmental quality and environmental conservation but how is it to be done? Do you rely increasingly on government regulation and intervention or do you rely more on the marketplace?" In other words, something like the carbon tax Jason Kenney has promised to eliminate in Alberta ...
