Our Time For A Green New Deal – Yellowknife

“…Our Time’s endorsed candidates are bold leaders who will push the
envelope when they’re elected. They will take risks, organize fellow
Members of Parliament, and work across party lines to tackle
the climate emergency. They’re running grassroots campaigns.
And they are championing a made-in-Canada Green New Deal….”

Climate Strike! 1 in 20 Yellowknifers marched in the Capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories !
“…Global March for Climate Change blocks the streets of downtown Yellowknife – Friday, Sep. 27th, 2019 – Roughly one thousand people marched to City Hall in Yellowknife today as part of the Global March for Climate Change. […]
“Dene hide tanners and traditional harvesters have been forced to adjust their connections to land and culture because of the drastic changes in our traditional territories,” Dëneze Nakehk’o, a founding member of Dene Nahjo said. “These close connections have sustained us for generation upon generation since time immemorial. It is also the reason Indigenous Peoples should be on the forefront of climate solutions.” […]
The strike came just days before the territorial election and mere weeks away from the federal election, with many candidates in attendance.
“Today, we’re striking and tomorrow we’ll continue to build a massive movement for a Green New Deal, in the federal election and in our streets and communities after that,” Pretty Ngo, a student spokesperson for the local chapter of Our Time said. […]
All three school boards avoided scheduling tests on the day of the strike to not penalize students who took part and several teachers brought their classes as a whole to the event. …”

“Media and reconciliation” is a Truth and Reconciliation Commission call to journalist’s action

The TRC report urges Canadian journalism programs and media schools to “require education for all students on the history of Aboriginal peoples.”

ITK’s Natan Obed scolds reporters

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau looks on as Natan Obed, President of the ITK, speaks during a press conference in Iqaluit, Nunavut “…Questions moved to the SNC-Lavalin affair, which has been dominating the news cycle in Ottawa for the last month. The shift in focus, away from human rights abuses experienced by Inuit, prompted Obed to scold reporters and remind media of its role in reconciliation.
Full transcript of his comments below:
“I think something that the media should reflect on is that throughout all of this, there has always been more important stories. And the stories of human rights abuses to Inuit. Every time there is something that happens, such as an apology today, there are other stories in the world.
But the fact that media passed right by the people whose human rights abuses were not told by the media for decades to other stories of the day is still a reflection on the work that needs to happen in reconciliation. The Inuit who were apologized today matter. This story matters. It is a Canadian story.
And I recognize that there are other media stories that matter as well. But I do hope in the future there can be more respect given to the place and time and the people who deserve to have their story told. And the media have a strong role to play to tell it.”
Obed is president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, a national non-profit organization that represents 53 communities in the north.
“Media and reconciliation” is a subsection in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action. The TRC report urges Canadian journalism programs and media schools to “require education for all students on the history of Aboriginal peoples.”….”
