Good Sunday Morning! Happy first Sunday of the New Year! Do you make New Year’s resolutions? And if you do, do you keep them? I came across this wonderful set of resolutions from legendary folksinger Woodie Guthrie. On January 1, 1943, he put pen to paper and made 33 promises to himself.  He started ...

Good Sunday Morning! My Sunday morning started many hours ago.  As the clock ticked past midnight in Madrid (3 pm at home in BC), negotiations were still underway, as they continued throughout the night and early morning hours.

Good Sunday Morning! As you read this, I am likely to be lugging a suitcase off the carousel at the Madrid airport. COP25 is about to enter its second week – known as the high-level segment. Every COP has the same rhythm, while some are more intense than others.  The Conference of the Parties (hence ...

Rabbits! Happy December. (Sorry about the “rabbits.” Old habit for starting the first day of the month from my British dad.) The climate-related news this week focused on a new report on carbon pricing. The EcoFiscal Commission made the case that raising the carbon tax to $210/ton by 2030 is the best way to meet ...

I remember loving the Sunday ritual of Thomas Teuwen’s weekly message – with equal doses of information, insight and inspiration. And, like you, I have missed it. What started in 2015 as an update to share the news from the canvassing team became a very informative weekly newsletter. It is time to bring it back! ...

We are in a climate emergency and we are doing nothing substantive or effective to confront it. Within Parliament and media circles, we ignore the urgency of the climate crisis. Some Members of Parliament understand the grave nature of the threat. Some of us grasp that when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports ...

The November 2015 appointment of Jody Wilson-Raybould as Canada’s Minister of Justice was a moment of genuine pride. As a Canadian, no matter that I lead an opposition party, I was so moved by the historic breakthrough. Wilson-Raybould had become the first Indigenous person to serve as Canada’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice. As ...
