Tim Stanley Lecture Nov. 20

Dear Friends of SJS,
Please join us on November 20th for:
"WHAT’S IN A NAME? OVERCOMING EXCLUSIONS IN THE STORIES WE TELL"with Timothy J. Stanley, prize-winning historian of the Chinese and of racism in British Columbia7 PM, Monday NOVEMBER 20, David Strong Building, C118
History is not neutral. The stories we tell about the past have real consequencesfor people in the present. Who we publicly commemorate matters. Shouldwe honour Canada’s first prime minister, John A. McDonald? Or A.W. Neil, theMP from Port Alberni who has a school named in his honour? Or ChristopherColumbus, after whom the province is named? This lecture illustrates ways ofdeveloping antiracist and decolonized histories of inclusion for British Columbiaand Canada. Tim Stanley is the author of Contesting White Supremacy (UBC Press, 2012).

URGENT: Site C


Right now, the BC Government is deciding whether to cancel Site C or allow it to continue - and if we act fast, we can convince them to scrap the dam.

The government can’t afford to alienate progressive voters, and that means your voice is a powerful weapon to stop Site C.

SEND A MESSAGE


A scathing new report just dropped exposing that the Site C dam is way behind schedule and set to blow through its budget – by billions. [1]

The unecessary Site C dam could cost us over $10 billion, while our province's schools and hospitals are crying out for funding and so many of us are already struggling to pay our hydro bills. [2]

And the worst part? If the dam goes forward, billionaire fracking and tar sands corporations will get a massive handout, in the form of below-cost power, subsidized by your hydro bill. [3-4]

Right now, the BC Government is deciding whether to scrap the dam or allow it to continue -- and you can bet the fracking lobby are turning up the pressure, hungry for Site C’s below-cost power.

How we stop Site C


Pro-dam political insiders are pressuring the BC Government to build Site C despite the evidence against it.

Chip in $5 to fight back with a hard-hitting radio ad exposing the truth about the megadam.

CHIP IN $5


The BC Government could decide the fate of the Site C dam any day now. Powerful political insiders are pressuring the government to continue with the disastrous project -- but we’ve got a plan to fight back. [1]

If Site C goes forward, we’ll sink $10 billion into a dam we don’t need, while our schools and hospitals are crying out for funding. As if that’s not bad enough, your hydro bill will skyrocket, to subsidize below-cost power for billionaire fracking corporations. [2-4]

Trump could detain you


The Senate is about to pass a bill that would give US border guards the right to detain, interrogate and even strip-search Canadians in airports, on Canadian soil. Will you write a letter asking the Senate to scrap this dangerous bill?

EMAIL THE SENATE


Right now, the Senate is debating whether or not you can be detained and strip searched by Trump’s emboldened border guards.

Bill C-23 is sitting in the Senate. If passed, it would give US border guards extraordinary powers to search and detain Canadian citizens going through US customs, in Canadian airports.[1-2]

With Trump calling for ‘extreme vetting’ at the borders, the potential for abuse of these new powers is high. It leaves Canadians -- especially visible minorities -- extremely vulnerable to discrimination and other human rights violations.[3]
