[Uvic-sustainability] News and Events for week of April 14th

NEWS

 

UVic students are active in community-based mapping: Amy Becker (Anthropology), who is this year’s recipient of the Jamie Cassels Undergrad Research Award, has created a digital atlas of traditional First Nations place names on Vancouver Island using Google Earth technology. Chris Krasowski (Geography) is working on a project in conjunction with the City of Victoria to create a map of potential solar roofs in the city. The data will be incorporated into VicMap, the city’s online mapping resource. 

 

UVic faculty are among the dozens of scientists who signed on to a letter in the National Post to protest the fact that over two dozen scientists had applied for intervener status at the upcoming National Energy Board hearings on the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline project, yet all were rejected. They believe it is because they were proposed to speak about climate change.

Social Justice Film Night

the film investigates Klein's central idea of disaster capitalism.
Social Justice Film Night Presents:
"THE SHOCK DOCTRINE"
7:00pm Thursday, April 172994 Douglas (BCGEU Hall) Victoria
Admission by Donation
From acclaimed filmmakers Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, The Killer Inside Me) and Mat Whitecross (The Road to Guantanamo), and based on Naomi Klein's provocative bestselling book of the same name, The Shock Doctrine is a gripping and incisive deconstruction of how radical free market policies have come to dominate the world.
Using shock therapy as a metaphor, the film investigates Klein's central idea of disaster capitalism. When countries are jolted by catastrophic events such as war or natural disasters, they are often subjected to totally un-regulated free market remedies that benefit corporations at public expense. The film traces the doctrine's beginnings from the theories of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School economists, through its implementation over the past 40 years in Pinochet's Chile,...

Support the City of Victoria’s motion on Clayoquot Sound mining

  Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks vista (Matt Krykorka)    

City Council to vote on motion April 10th

Hi Michael,

On Thursday, March 27th, in a preliminary meeting, City of Victoria councillors expressed support for the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation’s call for a moratorium on mining activity in its traditional territory. The motion, which came in response to a letter from Tla-o-qui-aht Chief Councillor Moses Martin, will be put to a final vote by City Council on Thursday, April 10th.

It’s time to thank the City of Victoria for their attention to this issue so far, and encourage City Council to pass the motion next week!

A bit of background…

Late last summer, the Province of British Columbia granted a permit to Vancouver-based Imperial Metals to conduct exploration at the Fandora site in the Tranquil Valley in Clayoquot Sound.

The site is in Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation territory, and last year the Tla-o-qui-aht declared the area a Tribal Park, a designation under which mining activity is not permitted.

The Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation is calling for a moratorium on mining activity in its territory, and has the support of the local municipal government, the District of Tofino.

At this stage, it is critical that we show as much support as possible for the rights of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and for a healthy, vibrant Clayoquot Sound – one that does not include risky, unsustainable mines.

Please take a minute to write a letter thanking the City of Victoria for their support and encouraging City Council to pass the motion backing the Tla-o-qui-aht’s call for a mining moratorium. This is a symbolic motion that will put pressure on the provincial government to respect the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and do the right thing for the environment in Clayoquot Sound.

[Uvic-sustainability] News and Events for week of April 7th

NEWS

 

Two UVic scientists were featured prominently in media coverage on the latest IPCC UN report on climate change that came out last week. Tom Pedersen of the UVic-led Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions says a new 'industrial revolution' is underway, but the real challenge is to get people to understand the gravity of the climate situation and to take various actions to protect the planet. Ken Denman of Ocean Networks Canada is also quoted saying the issue is not lack of scientific evidence of climate change, but rather, the unwillingness of people and governments to act. See Ottawa Citizen (Postmedia News).

The province has taken another step forward in its first major legislative exercise involving water in a century. The Water Sustainability Act completed its second reading last week and opposition MLAs debated and raised concerns about certain points related...
