Good Sunday Morning! And what a week it was.  Major political assumptions were turned upside down – chief among them “nothing happens in politics in the dog days of summer.” For a quick review, on Monday, the Minister of Finance Bill Morneau stepped down and also announced he was resigning his Toronto Centre seat. The next ...

Good Sunday Morning! So here’s a good one.  An epidemiologist, a virologist and a pediatrician walked into a bar…. Just kidding.  They are way too smart to walk into a bar in a pandemic. Is it too soon for COVID humour? And how about how we can no longer use that expression “avoid it like the plague”? ...

75 years ago today, Canadian uranium from Saskatchewan loaded in a nuclear warhead detonated, destroying the Japanese city of Nagasaki.  The radionuclides from that chain reaction continued to poison people for long after in radioactive fallout. One reader reminded me last week of Toyama and the other cities destroyed in that dreadful first week of August. ...

Climate change with little coverage (July 26, 2020) Good Sunday Morning! Let me start with a mea culpa. I was brought up short last Sunday morning for forgetting to make note that July 20, 2020 – an auspicious date – is the 149th anniversary of British Columbia joining Canada.  On July 20, 1871 B.C. became the sixth ...

Good Sunday Morning!   We have hit the three months mark of living in pandemic land.  I don’t know about you, but I am sick of it.  But we know it is not over. We have to be careful. As Greens, we called for a coordinated national response months ago. We are the only party ...

Good Sunday Morning!  Amazingly enough, my time line for pandemic tells me this is week 11 in lock down. The days have blurred together, but with parliamentary committees meeting virtually every week day, at least weekends have begun to feel different. I still work through Saturday and Sunday, but mostly in zoom meetings with constituents ...

Good Sunday Morning! This Sunday marks the beginning of my tenth year as the Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands. Thanks to many of you, I have been re-elected twice and hope to hold the seat in the next federal election. (Yes, I am running again!) If you are a constituent living in Saanich-Gulf Islands, ...

Good Sunday Morning! It has been a very hard week. My home province is reeling from the worst mass murder in Canadian history. Like most people from Pictou County, I know family members of victims. For all Canadians, this week has been brutal. Our hearts are broken. It was also a week for celebration – ...

Good Sunday Morning!   In the time line I set for myself of COVID-19 (March 9th being the first day), we are heading into Week 7 of pandemic world. Last Saturday, when I was in Parliament to pass legislation to expand the wage subsidy, I was quite sure that we would not reconvene on April ...

Good Sunday Morning! Happy Easter! Happy Passover! Chag Pesach Sameach! On Good Friday, a day when I would normally shut off my email and phone, committing to quiet contemplation and fasting, I packed my suitcase for the first time in weeks and headed back to Ottawa. For the first time ever, I wore a mask ...
