Cecilia Point from the Musqueam Nation, Bryson Robertson and the potential for Wave Energy

As we approach Canada’s 150th birthday, we’re invited to ponder the longer history of this land.  Rather than blind patriotism, we can consider what Canada has failed at, in addition to how it has succeeded, in an effort to build a truly strong nation (our home on native land) with liberty and justice for all.  Cecelia Point is a Musqueam (Vancouver) mother, activist, student, and advocate for the rights of all women to live safely without fear of harassment and abuse.  She shares her perspective, drawing on the many centuries of history known to her people.

Dr. Bryson Robertson is an adjunct professor with the University of Victoria’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.  He serves as the Program Manager for the West Coast Wave Initiative and the 2060 Project with the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems.  With over a decade of experience in renewable energies, oceanographic measurements, and coastal engineering, Bryson oversees two teams of students developing tools and techniques to better understand future marine and energy systems.

And, Chris Cook with a What in the World update.
