Not an average month

The Leadnow community has been fighting on so many fronts that it’s been hard to keep up with it all -- so I thought I’d send a quick note to share some of the highlights from an amazing month.

Here’s a quick summary of what your Leadnow community has accomplished in the last month:

Toronto Book Launch of Free Public Transit: And Why We Don't Pay to Ride Elevators

"We don’t pay for elevators, do we? And rightly so. The very idea is preposterous. Yet the public transit system plays the same role in the city, only sideways," argues the author Jason Prince, a Montreal urban planner and social economy expert.

Now there is a chance to do something positive about this injustice. The federal government promised reform and appointed an Expert Panel to hear from Canadians. In 2016, over 20,000 people sent letters urging the federal government to reform our laws to protect Canadians' right to be heard through the charities they support. Hundreds of organizations also participated in the consultation and made detailed submissions – including West Coast Environmental Law (through our sister organization, https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=a062fedffd5ca304489dbdbd2bf812da4cad679562530c3e409c87fb756685975798953d01b2bab3c9b86acda0c1e1ede0b0aa314b2a2600 the West Coast Environmental Law Research Foundation ). In March 2017, the Expert Panel submitted its final recommendations to the Minister of National Revenue. Its report contained a clear call to action: fix the broken system. However, to date the federal government...

BC referendum


Dear PAOV,

Thousands of Leadnow members have already told us to go all in to win proportional representation (PR) for BC this fall -- but we still haven’t heard from you. do you want Leadnow to launch the biggest campaign we’ve ever run in BC to help win PR for our province?

SIGN THE PLEDGE

BC's referendum on electoral reform is a once in a lifetime opportunity to usher in a new kind of politics to BC, and we can’t afford to let anti-PR pundits trying to cling on to our current system jeopardize this chance to upgrade our democracy.

Breaking: Kinder Morgan's bailout



The federal government has decided to bail out oil giant Kinder Morgan. Help us fight back. ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌

Dear PAOV,

On Tuesday evening, less than 12 hours after Trudeau’s government announced it was using billions of tax dollars to buy Kinder Morgan’s leaky 65-year old pipeline, thousands rallied in Vancouver, reminding Trudeau that we’re still standing strong against his dangerous pipeline and tanker project — and in fact, his actions just increased our resolve. More targeted demonstrations and protests are being planned in the days to come.

Stand.earth continues to play a key role in the movement against this pipeline. Click here to keep us in the fight.

With Kinder Morgan’s announcement last month, halting non-essential spending on the $7.4 billion dollar Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project, the future of this pipeline expansion is very much in question. Since then, the legal and constitutional debates have only ratcheted up across the nation, the federal government is scrambling, andcommunity members and Indigenous leaders continue to risk arrest in the name of environmental justice. Just last week, the federal government announced its plans to https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=69c9ad1b696150a43c17a745f101d4ffb377916c4bababa4bf562feb19cf6d08130cd30e669f14d39be1ca7d5338ae0d bail out this ill-fated project . On top of that, new information about the federal government’s internal strategy on Kinder Morgan adds weight to concerns thatthe approval was rigged, and that consultations with Indigenous peoples were virtually meaningless. https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=69c9ad1b696150a47dd44fa85475b2fcb75141b7f6351be77ba5f4e7e804f38fd4b7b89ff005cb11aeb8bc890b3397ab Stand with us today – donate $5 a month to support a healthy environment!

[evoz] coffee

Dear CASC coffee lovers, Allen has bagged a fresh roast of our Cafe Simpatico coffee. Our partners OGIFA on Saltspring Island have had to increase the price to us of more than one dollar – due to rising shipping and handling cosrs and also because this year’s crop was much less than expected. OGIFA like your CASC committee are dedicated volunteers who work hard to bring us these wonderful beans from Nicaragua and to help our farmer partners there. Your CASC planning committee has raised the price here to $14/ lb/ 454 grams. Still a wonderful and just cup of coffee. Call Allen at 250 384-0477 for yours.
