Harper MisGovernment blind to social factors behind MMIW

Another not so great moment for Canada under the Harper MisGovernment. Our federal government is at least acting clueless to the social basis behind the obscenely disproportionate numbers of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW).

FIPA coming down the pipeline ...

... and, as the Vancouver Observer's Jenny Uechi points out, it should raise many red flags. For example, because there wasn't consultation with First Nations the Canada-China trade deal might be unconstitutional.

Free, prior and informed consent has never been a strong suit of the Harper MisGovernment, though.

#GordNation admantly against Transit Choices now!

Two birds of a feather? Gord Steeves and Scott Fielding.

Image Source: Twitter
Gord Steeves and Scott Fielding are two rightwing city politicians that are alumni of Katz's inner circle - the Executive Policy Committee (EPC).

Both distanced themselves from Sam Katz yet, like our Mayor in the past, both want to stall on rapid transit.

They stand for the sad status quo of having a rapid transit line running only halfway to the the U of M.  This is a project which had a shovel ready plan back in 2004.

After years of dithering we got half the project done and have been promised $375 million in federal and provincial funds. Gord and Scott want to stall on this, which  may jeopardize the funding.

 So, we must ask ourselves, who are these clowns?
