Thursday May 16 international launch of 42 minute doc Do the Math: The Movie,
"the story of the rising movement to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis and fight the fossil fuel industry."In Vancouver it's showing at Langara and four other venues. To find one near you, look here.
Meanwhile Justin Trudeau tours western Canada giving pressers criticizing Harper for not doing enough to promote Keystone XL. I get the strategy. Don't give Steve anything to hit and eventually when Steve implodes, the oil industry will have a really popular hopey changey corporate guy in their pocket - a Canadian Obama for us. Someone who supports arbitrary arrest and detainment for three days without charge while being questioned and held without trial for a year if you don't co-operate, but who we will at least like better than we like Steve. Would that be better than having Steve?
Makes it hard to take seriously the idea of anybody-but-Steve electoral co-operation.
Purple Library Guy said something interesting at Dawg's :
"I'd find the whole thing a bit easier to swallow if it were phrased a bit differently. Say you said "getting the left and centre-right to co-operate against the fascists". The moment someone says "getting the left to co-operate" when we're talking about Liberals, I conclude someone's trying to scam me."Seconded.
