Keystone XL Pipeline
Jonathan Wilkinson says Joe Biden won a mandate by promising climate action.
Transition documents suggest the incoming U.S president will quickly rescind the pipeline permit.
Trudeau and Biden will have “an amazing relationship,” a former U.S. ambassador says.
By standing with Indigenous defenders on the land, in the courts and at the banks, we will win.
Landowners and tribal members are joining together to build solar projects directly in the path of the proposed pipeline.
Things don’t happen just because Donald Trump wants them to.
Sure, I'll admit it. And, I'd also add that Justin doesn't have the kind of temperament as Trump, and Trudeau lacks the overt, brute power of the post-fact machinations of an American sized, propaganda machine. But be careful here. It's exactly that sort of reasoning that makes fascism so dangerous. Mesmerized by the most extreme perpetrators, we can then unconsciously ignore egregious abuses of democracy by more "normal," even cuddly-appearing leaders.
McKibben urged Trudeau’s gushing fans to “stop swooning” over the prime minister, whom he called a “disaster for the planet.”
More and more I hear Canadians making mean and disparaging comments about those who disagree or have different points of view. I also hear racist remarks, which is terribly distressing. It's not who we are as a nation. Some of the things said after the shooting at the Mosque in Quebec made me feel like I was at a Trump rally. And I'm not ashamed, or afraid, to say I don't like it.
I haven't noticed many of these wealthy film idols advocating for poor people who can't even pay for the most basic, reliable oil-based technologies. Cutting off affordable petroleum-based resources isn't just frivolous; it's harmful to the most vulnerable people in society.
