Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Federal cuts to health care for refugees and the adverse effects resulting from them, have been well-publicized. The fight to restore full health-care coverage is moving forward, thanks to the hard work of health-care professionals, lawyers, and refugee advocates.

Demand that the Federal Government support the Freedom Flotilla

Gaza

 

Four boats (flying Greek and Swedish flags) with 47 people on board set sail on June 27th towards Gaza to bring relief and demand that the port in Gaza be opened.  On June 29th, three boats of the Israeli navy had surrounded the Marianne in international waters, while sailing she was approximately 100NM from Gaza coast.  The Israely navy themselves stated that had captured the boat and detained all on board “in international waters”.  Ask the government of Canada to take action here.

I am taking this opportunity to wish my country prosperity, peace and justice. Happy Canada Day.

However, I am worried about the trend my nation is taking -- one away from the principles of justice, equality, peacekeeping and other noble qualities Canada used to be known and respected for.

Eating our way to extinction

Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

A new study in Science confirms that the planet's sixth mass extinction is underway. As with past mass extinctions, numbers of large animals (elephants, rhinoceroses, polar bears, etc.) are falling at the fastest rate, but nearly all animal species are in decline, including most insects and other invertebrates.
