We are honored this week to host a group of talented young environmentalists from Holy Cross Catholic School, the winners of a school contest to make claymation animation videos about Ontario Endangered Species. Jann, Eden, Victoria, Ruel and Jason join the show to talk about their winning animations and the endangered species they learned about, and are introduced by their teacher Liane Paixao. Thank you to all of them for participating!

You can (and really should) watch their animations yourself here.

In the middle section, Stefan takes point and makes the best case he can FOR the TPP, which leads us to talk about our responses to the best case scenario for it to take it down. There’s lots of reasons to be skeptical the TPP is in our interest, and now you have a few more.

Finally we take some time to talk about Nuclear subsidies as voted for by #vote4thenews as well as a bit about a terrible op-ed by Rex Murphy about Alberta’s oil woes, which continues into the bonus show.

After 60 years of nuclear power, the industry survives only on stupendous subsidies
