Unite to Stop the Pipelines workshop is happening this weekend in Victoria (on unceded Coast Salish Territory), and Zoe Blunt tells us what that’s all about, how to get involved, and why . Then Melissa Fong, from Vancouver (also unceded Coast Salish Territory), launched a #25klunch “Most Entertaining Mayoral Mockery in Meme-ory” in honour of condo developer Bob Rennie’s $25,000/plate luncheon efforts to purchase Mayor Gregor Robertson. Melissa tells us what she knows about the luncheon, and the local area plan for gentrification of the DTES. Next elected School Board official Diane McNally has concerns about the closure of yet another public school in SD 61, while private schools are still funded significantly from the public purse. Finally, Joseph Boutilier is leaving for a cross Canada adventure riding on his unicycle on April 5th in an effort to bring awareness to the climate crisis.
I apologize for incorrectly announcing the Music for Social and Environmental Justice event … it happened on Thursday rather than Friday night. I hope you weren’t inconvenienced 😦
