(00:17 – 12:51) Canada’s delegation to the UN Conference on Climate Change in Montreal this week focuses on the role of the federal government. A recent report by the David Suzuki Foundation assesses what is being done at the provincial and territorial levels to make progress on meeting Canada’s commitments. Dale Marshall is author of the report.
(12:52 - 23:35) Vancouver playwright Aaron Bushkowsky thinks Vancouver has traded in its soul for a mess of high-end condos. In the play "Soulless", written in 2002 and playing at the Frederic Wood Theatre at UBC until December 3, Bushkowsky explores what happens to a city when views take precedence over community and a sense of history. Laura Lamb reviews the production.
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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
