Join Tim Whalley’s volunteer team

We’re now less than a month away from provincial election day. We’ve got a big team of volunteers helping Tim Whalley, our Green Party of Ontario candidate. But we always need more. Please let us know if you can help out in any way. There’s lots of fun, easy ways to help, either with a group of people together or on your own time at home. Here’s your first volunteer task: request a sign.

More action against Keystone XL pipeline

I previously wrote about Patricia Warwick, one of the “Fabulous 45” – so named because although they came to Washington expecting to face a $100 “post and forfeit” for defying the rules of the park in front of the White House, they discovered that those arrested the previous day were to be held for 3 days.  The 45 risked arrest anyway.

The actions against the Keystone XL pipeline (which would enable a vast expansion in the capacity for oil production from the tar sands) at the White House continued for another 12 days after Patricia’s arrest, with over 1200 arrests in total, including east Toronto residents Sharon Howarth, the Green Party of Canada candidate in Toronto-Danforth in the 2008 federal election and David Wilson, an oil industry retiree.  Tar Sands Action, which organized this demonstration, vows to continue working to oppose the pipeline

The action against the Keystone XL Pipeline is now moving to Canada, where activists are planning a sit-in on September 26. You can find out more and join here.
