Climate Change Deniers Rally in Regina

A sorry excuse for a rally is under way in Regina today. It’s a grouchy band of malcontents and [muted] racists who share a dislike for science and the Prime Minister.

The cowards deleted their racist post that Meili sarcastically called “brilliant”.

Among the supporters of the corporate ralliers are former Yellow Vest rally attendee Premier Moe, and this Yellow Vest rallier Jason LeBlanc who spoke in Ottawa at the event Scheer and Faith Go|dy spoke at.
LeBlanc says to the NDP “I thought we were friends.” “I’m just a farmer“, yet he’s acting as a mouthpiece for Oil and Gas AKA the SaskParty.

“I am passionate about auctions, but I am more passionate about survival in farming.”
Too bad he’s not passionate about survival of the humans who’d farm, and the climate required to do farming in Saskatchewan.

Who are the people he mentioned there?
Kevin Hursh was a TV agriculture journalist well known in Saskatchewan, and last year he wrote something awful for the newspaper, which I panned.
Krause denies being a climate change denier, but is a darling for their cause because her name is on Deniers’ lips anytime the subject of foreign money for environmental causes comes up.

LeBlanc, from Estevan, also promotes notable Denier Patrick Moore:
“@EcoSenseNow Mar 31
I am not a con man or a special interest, and I don’t take taxpayer’s $. I am a “real scientist” with a real PhD in science. There is zero hard evidence that CO2 is the cause [blah blah blah]”

Now if you want to hear from sensible people, this sums up the ralliers’ situation if they are not actively farming:
D. Bonnycastle:
‏”All this kerfuffle for 4.6 cents. Either they are idiots or they are trying to distract from the unprotested 25 cent raise for the oil companies.”

A journalist asked me if I was going to protest the rally in person, and I haven’t decided yet, probably not. A lot of the people there are feeling their livelihood is being threatened, emboldened by bad political leaders like Moe, and several of them are racists and fascists. I’ve never attended an anti-fascist counter-protest before, and I wouldn’t do so half-assedly.

There happens to be a child-led protest at the Legislature the following morning, at 10am-11am for the Fridays for Future global strike movement. Kids who are fed up with political inaction are striking on Fridays, since schooling won’t matter too much if their world is shattered by climate change disasters in the coming decades.

SaskPotty Cave Men Are Liars

SaskPotty Cave Men Duncan Moe

It’s frustrating having cave men deciding your province’s future. If only they’d developed leaderships skills aside from being liars masterful enough to fool their voters.

Moe Defends His Travel By Attacking the wrong NDP

Saskatchewan’s Premier literally thinks that raw resources are more important than our people and their future here in Saskatchewan. Why is his badly typed meme using a federal NDP campaign plane to talk about provincial NDP travel? Could it be that his travel expenses are ridiculous, full of evasive photo ops with terrible people like Doug Ford?

Face Of Evil

And yet we have Agents of Destruction running Ontario and Saskatchewan, leaders who are hell bent on protecting the corporate elite who think it’s fine to build a pipeline for the tarsands. Hell, even our supposedly moderate Prime Minister and Climate Change Ministers both think that building a fucking pipeline in 2018, unusable in only half the time to a 2040 DEADline, isn’t wasting human labour, wasting time, and stranding assets underground.

If you aren’t developing a plan for yourself, and your place of work to be carbon neutral by 2030, you’re not helping enough. You’re failing yourself, and failing your children. Standing up to the useless, evil, cowards running our economies into the ground, would be a good starting point.

Hire Organ Donor Transplant Doctors

Saskatchewan has a big problem in our health care system. The last Premier, Wall, promised to do something about this, but nothing got fixed. Premier Moe may be too busy picking a fight with B.C. to ask his Health Minister(s) to hire a small team of doctors to ensure donor organs are collected and given to people waiting on donor lists so they can be healthy and rejoin the workforce and have full lives again.

“SaskAdvantage” is on the sign driving into the Regina Bypass highway tangle east of the capital city. If you’re sick on an organ donor waiting list in Saskatchewan, you’re at a definite SaskDisadvantage because our Health Minister isn’t getting the job done for you.

Husky Might Be Fined

Husky has only been charged now by the Crown, for a spill nearly 2 years ago. Federal charges may be pending too. The provincial charges carry a possible fine of only $1M. Great deal for an oil company, to operate and ruin the water supply of Saskatchewan’s 3 largest city and many other people too.

A report from the province is being delayed until after a possible appeal, making it many years since the spill until others can learn important details and possibly solutions.

Here’s a blog post from way back about the spill.
