The news team discusses new Canadian pipeline/environmental review announcements by the federal government. The good, bad and ugly.
In the middle of the show, we respond to Rick Mercer (Famous Canadian Pundit/Comedian) regarding his recent video promoting Energy East and deriding Montreal for saying no to it.
Rick Mercer's video (removed from Facebook where it was originally exclusively posted...and was removed a few days later after 75,000+ comments and 20,000 shares, and then uploaded to Youtube where it can now be found...Wonder why?)
Finally we talk about solutions. Now that we are starting to have the difficult conversations we need to have, what do activists that were focused on getting people to pay attention to the issue do now? Propose solutions :) and we do just that.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
