VANCOUVER, B.C. — Premier John Horgan, Grand Chief Edward John, and other officials opened the B.C. Cabinet and First Nations Leaders’ Gathering in Vancouver this morning with a major announcement.

During the press conference, Horgan announced that the B.C. government will be governing the province according to principles in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Horgan also said that the provincial government will implement the 94 Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report.

The Premier highlighted the government’s strong cross-government commitments to work in partnership with First Nations and Indigenous peoples to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, and the Tsilhqot’in Supreme Court decision.

New research that finds a possible link between fish farms and the spread of antibiotic resistance doesn’t surprise marine biologist Inka Milewski.

“Anytime you have animals grown in very concentrated conditions in these intensive livestock operations, whether it’s pigs or chickens, or in this case, fish, you’re going to have the potential for disease problems,” Milewski said in an interview Sunday from her home in the Miramichi in New Brunswick.

“The solution to a lot of these problems is to put antibiotics into the feed. And so it should come as no surprise to anyone that they have found antibiotic resistance associated with fish farms.”

The study released last week by Jing Wang of Dalian University of Technology in China concluded that genes for antibiotic resistance are getting into ocean sediments through fish food.

Millions of tonnes of fishmeal are used in fish farms every year, much of it sinking uneaten to the ocean floor, a news release on the study said.

PEOPLE FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT NSW

HUMAN SURVIVAL PROJECT

 

SANCTIONS? NO USE AT ALL!

THREATS? MAKE KIM JONG UN WORK FASTER

MILITARY ACTION? MILLIONS WILL DIE.

DIALOGUE? MIGHT BE WORTH A TRY.

(AND ANOTHER TRY AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER...)

 

Kim Jong Un has conducted his 6th nuclear test. Whether it really was a hydrogen bomb is uncertain, but it seems likely that the blast was 4-6 times the size of the last one. If it wasn't an actual hydrogen bomb its likely to have been 'gas boosted', which is a kind of way station to a hydrogen bomb. There doesn't seem to be, and most likely isn't, any way to stop him. Hyperventilating, sanctions, threats of military action, aren't working. Military action will kill millions, and lead to the very thing we are trying to prevent – the actual use of nuclear weapons.

warning of flood risk in Houston from a major hurricane E-mail

Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf Coast of Texas late Friday night as a Category 4 storm, and, since making landfall near Corpus Christi, has dumped record rainfall on Houston and the surrounding areas. A full-blown catastrophe is underway there as tens of thousands fled the area, and thousands of those who didn’t evacuate have been rescued by emergency responders and volunteers. Harvey, now a tropical storm, has dropped an estimated 11 trillion gallons of rain on Texas, and much more is on the way, particularly for Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city, which is expected to shatter all-time rainfall records.

Pope Francis to World Leaders: 'Listen to the Cry of the Earth'

 

Pope Francis, who has a strong belief in the science of climate change, called upon world leaders on Wednesday to "listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor, who suffer most because of the unbalanced ecology."

Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew I, the head of the Orthodox Christian Church, will issue a joint message to commemorate the annual "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation" on Friday, the Associated Press reported.

For ten days starting August 21, 2017, U.S. and South Korean forces will carry out the Ulchi Freedom Guardian war drills involving tens of thousands of soldiers from both militaries simulating an invasion of North Korea. Proponents say they are needed to deter aggression from Pyongyang, whereas North Korea views these rehearsals for war as highly threatening and justification for its nuclear and missile program. These war drills have been going on since 1953 when the Korean War was halted with a ceasefire, but not a peace treaty.

Trump Goes 'Full Delusion Mode' With Unhinged Performance at Arizona Rally E-mail

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi has witnessed many of Donald Trump's rallies and speeches, but the president's performance Tuesday night in Phoenix, Arizona—delivered as hundreds of protestors crowded the streets demanding "Mr. Hate" to leave their state—was the "craziest" yet.

"This Trump speech is like something out of a psychopathology textbook." 
—Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone

"Trump," Taibbi wrote, was in "full delusion-mode" throughout the evening, fuming to the delight of his supporters in the crowd about the media's focus on his defense of white supremacist violence, railing against states moving to take down Confederate statues, and accusing news outlets of "turning off live feedsbecause they're afraid of his words."

The president also floated the possibility of a government shutdown if Congress refuses to authorize funds for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and claimed that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio—who last month was found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order demanding that his department stop racially profiling Latinos—was "just doing his job."

"This Trump speech is like something out of a psychopathology textbook," Taibbi concluded.

Others shared Taibbi's assessment, denouncing on social media and in aghast statements the "unhinged," "hostile," and "incoherent" nature of Trump's campaign-style rally.

Action on Geoengineering E-mail

Thursday, 17 August 2017 12:02

 

The recent release of the documentary "Frankenskies" shows the effects of geoengineering on our weather, environment and health. It adds another dimension and critical factor in climate change.  Nano-particles of aluminum, barium and strontium regularly sprayed to seed clouds are only part of the problem.  They cause respiratory illness, increase alzheimer's* likely, pollute water and land and accelerate forest fires burning intensity.

This documentary (one and a half hrs.long) traces the sources, delivery and parties profiting from this globally and can be seen online and should be mandatory viewing for both decision-makers and the public.

According to Elana Freeland, author of "Chemtrails, HAARP and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth" Geo-engineering and environmental warfare are prohibited by the ENMOD Convention at the UN in 1994".The underlying objective appears to be 'Whoever controls the weather, controls the world'.

We are all affected by this illegal activity.  A moratorium on geo-engineering and inquiry into it is warranted now.

MEDIA RELEASE

Tŝilhqot’in Commend Federal Intervention to Permanently Stop Taseko Mines Limited’s

Drilling Program at Teztan Biny

 

Williams Lake, B.C. – The Tŝilhqot’in Nation welcomes news that the Federal Government has commenced its own court action to permanently prohibit Taseko Mines Limited (“Taseko”) from carrying out its drilling program at Teztan Biny (Fish Lake).

 

As a result of the Federal Government’s intervention, and a commitment from Taseko that it will not proceed with the drilling program at this time, the BC Supreme Court has withheld its decision on the interlocutory injunction application argued by the Tsilhqot’in two weeks ago.

 

The Federal Government filed a petition in the BC Supreme Court on August 10, asserting that Taseko’s drilling program would violate the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012, and seeking a permanent injunction to prohibit Taseko from undertaking this work.
