Winds of Change: Nukes or Alt Energy, Urban Sprawl, and Vancouver’s DTES

Stever Cornwell is an Energy Organizer with Greenpeace.  He informs us about Canada’s nuclear power industry and its relationship to government, about some of the fallout from Chernobyl and Fukushima, about nuclear waste, and about some of the clean alternative energy sources available to us.  Then, Cam Gray from the Victoria based Wilderness Committee talks about urban sprawl, the need to protect farmland and wild spaces, and this weekend’s free Sprawlapalooza concert.  And, Megaphone’s Sean Condon offers a street level perspective from the City of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.  Three shelters are closing, leaving several hundred people homeless and, at the same time, a new bylaw allows fines of $1000 and more to anyone placing any structure, object, or substance, including tents, in public places.
