Pickering Nuclear Station – tritium, high costs and risk – public forum

cal  Wed May 24
7 - 9 p.m.

Variety Village, 3701 Danforth Ave. Scar.

The Pickering Nuclear Station is one of the world’s oldest and largest, and it’s surrounded by 2 million people. OPG is now applying for yet another licence extension, this time till 2028.

Meanwhile, it continues to release 100 kgs of tritiated water vapour daily – radioactive tritium is a carcinogen, mutagen and teratogen.

And it continues to suck up $1 billion tax dollars every year to subsidize its operating losses.

Are there other ways to meet our electricity needs that are lower cost and safer? Speakers:

- Jack Gibbons, Chair of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, will address the costs and alternatives to extending Pickering’s licence.

- Dr. Ian Fairlie, radiation specialist, will address Pickering’s tritium problem.

Conference - The New Economy and a Basic Income Guarantee

cal  Mon May 29
8am-4:30pm

Innis Town Hall Theatre (2 Sussex Ave, Toronto, ON M5S 2E8)

A basic income guarantee (BIG) could provide every Canadian with an income sufficient to meet their minimal needs and live with dignity. Such a policy could also be a response to recent changes in the nature of employment, labour and work (e.g., declining benefits, employment precarity, erosion in working conditions, income inequality, free trade, job automation, outdated laws).

This conference will bring together over 250 representatives from academia, community, government, industry, law, unions and workers to:

• Identify changes to the nature of employment, labour and work that are pushing stakeholders in work arrangements (e.g., government, industry, labour, and workers) towards considering changes to social programs;

• Understand the challenges, expectations, and priorities of stakeholders to more effectively reflect their basic needs in the design of social programs;

• Review the fundamentals, history, and purpose of a BIG, as well as the evidence and theory on the intended and unintended labour market impacts of such a policy;

• Explore the relationship between a basic income guarantee policy and the broader politics of

labour policy and redistribution in Ontario; and

• Examine the economic, financial, political and social realities that are underlying stakeholders’ motivations towards administering, designing, organizing, planning, and receiving a BIG.

WHAT:

Conference - The New Economy and a Basic Income Guarantee

DATE:

May 29 2017

TIME:

8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

WHERE:

Conference - 08:00 AM - 04:30 PM

The 5th Annual Tommy Douglas Institute presents Social Justice = ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: Rethink! Reclaim! Respect!

cal  Wed May 31
10am-5:30pm

George Brown College, St. James Campus, Toronto, Ontario

The 5th annual Tommy Douglas Institute at George Brown College is pleased to announce Indigenous rights and environmental justice activist, Clayton Thomas-Müller and author, scholar and environmental justice activist, Dr. Vandana Shiva as its speakers on Social Justice = ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: Rethink! Reclaim! Respect!

If jobs are not green, can they be just? How does the natural world impact our health, education, housing? Must economic growth and prosperity always rest on environmental degradation as we gobble

up resources and destroy what’s left? Can we fight for Indigenous sovereignty, gender and racial justice, freedom from conflict and violence, sustainable communities and the rights of all humanity

without linking them to climate change and the environment?

As we stand at the tipping point of irreversible climate disaster and the worst existential crisis to ever face our global humanity, we must...

RETHINK our multiple connections and growing responsibilities to the natural world;

RECLAIM our communities and democracies from the omnicidal hubris of a climate change denying superpower and its allies; and RESPECT the rights

of an environment that is inseparable from the rights and dignity of all its peoples.

The Tommy Douglas Institute invites educational communities and wider communities for a day of compelling presentations, provocative roundtable

discussions, performances, an interactive Environmental Justice Fair, and a Connecting Climate Change to Social Change: Educate! Organize! Act! panel discussion (with Greenpeace, 350.org, LEAP, Toronto Environmental Alliance).

Join us in making the connections between climate justice and social justice.

Roundtable themes: ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE…

= Labour & Economic Justice: Jobs & Justice: Moving from Anti-Life

Economics to Life-Giving Economies

= Indigenous Rights: Demanding Sovereignty, Defending the Sacred:

Aboriginal Resistance & Decolonizing the Earth

= Gender Justice: Our Knowledge, Our Rights, Our Planet: Speaking

Truth to Patriarchy

= Food Security & Ecological Integrity: From Seeds to Sustainability:

Feeding Ourselves without Consuming the Planet

= Racial Justice: People Before Profit: Resisting Environmental Racism

& the Ecology of Capitalism

= Peace, Security & Freedom from Conflict: Crossing Borders, Breaking

Walls, Overcoming Division: Affirming Our

Commitment to One Another & Sustainable Global Communities
