Ward 30 race gets tighter

A couple of weeks ago, I personally endorsed Andrew James’s municipal campaign in Ward 30 on the strength of his platform, which courageously called for road tolls and a rapid phaseout of fossil fuels in buildings across the city.  Today, Andrew dropped out of the race and endorsed Liz West.  I cannot endorse Liz West myself.  She seems to be a nice, approachable lady who may be a reasonable voice for the ward, but I can detect no policy commitment that would inspire confidence in the direction she will take at City Hall.

We can’t afford to drop heating costs

2010 Oct 10: Thanksgiving solar potluck

I invite everyone to enjoy a solar-heated potluck Thanksgiving dinner with my family at our home.  My friend Rita is lending us her solar oven, which we’ll set up in the yard.  Bring something to share.  Make it local if you can to cut down on emissions because this event is one of the Global Work Day events to fight climate change.  We’ll share whatever is left over with a soup kitchen to honour the first annual World Homeless Day.
