Canadian Folk Music Award Nominees “Gathering Sparks”

Calling all singers (or would-be singers)! The Singalong Soiree is an evening of music that you can join in on. Gathering Sparks (Eve Goldberg, Jane Lewis & Sam Turton) combine their most singalongable originals with popular classic tunes, and would love to have the whole room singing with Them.

Wounded Warriors Canada – The Park of Reflection

The Park of Reflection is intended to provide a gathering space to give thanks, show respect, and provide sanctuary for our ill and injured uniformed service personnel, their families, and Canadians alike. This will be the first of its kind in Canada, proudly situated in Whitby’s Cullen Gardens. The men and women of our uniformed service dawn their uniforms each day with unlimited liability placed on their health and safety – risking their lives for our safety and security both domestically and internationally. Members of our uniformed service personnel include those from the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, Police, Fire, EMS, Coast Guard and Border Security Service personnel.


Big trouble in BC ~ Metal-Laden Toxic Material

The results are in! Apparently the residents of Likely, BC are safe to drink the water after 4,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools of toxic water and 4.5 million cubic metres of metal-laden toxic material from Mount Polley Mine’s tailings pond poured into their water supply. But when we look a bit closer, we know things aren’t right.

SWERUS-C3: Methane release from Arctic Ocean

Just a week into the sampling program and SWERUS-C3 scientists have discovered vast methane plumes escaping from the seafloor of the Laptev continental slope. These early glimpses of what may be in store for a warming Arctic Ocean could help scientists project the future releases of the strong greenhouse gas methane from the Arctic Ocean.

Climate Is Back

The good news is that climate is back. Recent developments have brought climate back to the forefront. Climate is news again. According to a Bloomberg National Poll, Americans are willing to bear the costs of combating climate change, and most are more likely to support a candidate seeking to address the issue. By an almost two-to-one margin, 62 percent to 33 percent, Americans say they would pay more for energy if it would mean a reduction in pollution from carbon emissions.


Market Champions and the Canada Trap (part one)

Andrew Coyne is the best muse we have for better housekeeping inside the box. Stephen Harper is exhibit A, as its most promising failure. He didn’t invent the term “economic union.” But, unlike any prime minister before, he clearly detests the barriers in its way and has had a majority to work against them. Yet his biggest accomplishment in smoothing the bumps in our federation has been to harmonize Brian Mulroney’s sales tax.

Fair Vote Canada ~ Help us Hit 100,000 Signers

100,000 signers before the 2015 federal election would send a powerful message to the party leaders and candidates that Canadians want a fair voting system, and are willing to make a commitment to it an election issue. We are looking forward to delivering this petition to the party leaders and the media!

Mike Rilstone ~ Prairie Farmers Shot their Own Feet Off!

By eliminating the Canadian Wheat Board, Harper removed the Prairie Farmers unified power. When will they learn? Years before the May, 2011 Federal election, if a Prairie Farmer had listened to Harper’s platform, they would have known he was a corporate-loving plutocrat, (whose personal wealth while Prime Minister had shot from chicken scraps to $15 million), and he was planning to give prairie farming to the huge conglomerates.
