Canada’s bonehead Prime Minister, in an effort to look more like Boris Johnson, has turned up in an old photo sporting a culturally inappropriate turban costume while wearing what is now, finally widely recognized as racist, blackface makeup.
Fewer years ago than when the Prime Minister dressed in blackface as a young adult and teen among sheltered & ignorant friends, the #CPCracists' leader was a young MP railing against the rights of homosexuals, while addressing the country in the House of Commons.#elxn43
The Right Honourable guy has a tattoo of First Nations imagery on his shoulder, I’m pretty sure he must have a whole closest stuffed full of inappropriate cultural appropriation. If Canadians come to their senses before polling day, they can elect a PM who wears a turban appropriately, or one who stands shoulder to shoulder with First Nations people as they’re arrested for defending unceded territory from invading oil companies.
I don’t much care for his strategy most of the time, but the Greens can’t keep doing the same thing when the other parties are playing to run out the clock. We’ve less than eleven years left to maybe, hopefully have enough time to get emissions to a point where we’ll survive the first half of this century. If a punk rocking blogger with a mean streak is able to help the Greens break-through, then good enough.
I think "war room" is Fife spin on what the Greens must surely call the Peace Room.
2 weeks ago Elizabeth May was in Regina at the University and gave the following speech. In it she covered everything from our failed public transportation systems, to SNC-Lavalin’s punishment when they are convicted of corruption for their bribes regarding construction in Libya.
It’s been another amazing day, and the Sun isn’t even down yet.
Attended a lunch-and-learn this morning with @ElizabethMay at the new CAC #UofR building.
Earth is sick with multiple and worsening environmental ills killing millions of people yearly, a new UN report says. The report's authors say something can still be done. "There is still time but the window is closing fast." https://t.co/PnlbcTajpR
Then we got a tour of Cowessess’s Renewable Energy facility a few kilometers past their gas station east of Regina on Arcola Ave.
Now May has left for Fort Qu’Appelle for a forum on climate change. It’s in Scheer’s home riding, but he declined to attend! (The coward…)
The official video of the event had sound issues. Here are some clips:
It was the warmest it’s been in Regina in months today, and Elizabeth May came to town on what’s left of our bus system in Saskatchewan. I had the pleasure of driving her and her fiance, and her staff around Regina on Tuesday. I’ll share some videos later.
In the 2015 election campaign, Justin Trudeau pledged that no project could be approved based on such an inadequate process. Trudeau promised evidence-based decisions, respect for indigenous rights, the end to fossil fuel subsidies and an aggressive climate plan.
