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 ...

By my COVID timeline, we are just heading into week 19 of our new existence. News from south of the border makes us want to seal the border ever tighter. My constituency office is deluged with calls of concern about foreign license plates. I raised the so-called “Alaska loophole” again in parliament last week. Meanwhile, ...

It’s not every day I get good news about a campaign I have been working on for decades.  My family home in Cape Breton was on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The fossil fuel industry set its eyes on this environmentally sensitive habitat for whales and endangered leatherback turtles and healthy fisheries ...

Good Sunday Morning! This Sunday finds me finally out of the 14 day isolation from the last trip to Ottawa and on my way back.  The House will sit this coming Wednesday July 8th, and I’ll arrive tomorrow for the Finance Committee meeting on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau will provide the first ...

Good Sunday Morning! Welcome to Summer! The Green Party leadership race is now well underway with ten candidates. The first debate was co-hosted by former Green leaders, Jim Harris and me and sponsored by Fair Vote Canada, and included some French. There will also be debates with a French broadcaster, details in the works. If you missed the ...

Happy Solstice! Happy Indigenous Peoples Day! Happy Fathers’ Day!! Happy Longest Day of the Year! It is my first full day home after a long shift in Ottawa, from June 1-18. The COVID-19 pandemic has been nearly over-shadowed these last few months by issues of racism and police violence. It is almost one month since ...

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 ...

Let me begin with an apology. Last Sunday, I think many of you expected and needed for me to talk about the cold-blooded murder of George Floyd and the horrors of Donald Trump. And you were disappointed. Instead, I wrote about climate and endangered species. Not the right call. Honestly, I couldn’t bear it. My ...

  Good Sunday Morning!   Amazing. Tomorrow is June first; starting Week 13 in my own COVID timeline. Life in COVID-world is now assured to span four months of 2020 and will likely take us through months to come. I have to return to Ottawa to take the last in-person shift for the Green Caucus ...

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 ...
