Implementing SDG13 and achieving A global vision for Canada would be:
 
(i) Fulfilling article 2, The ultimate objective of this Convention and any related legal instruments that the Conference of the Parties may adopt is to achieve, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Convention, stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.
 
(ii) Ending subsidies for fossil fuel, and calculating the carbon budget,
 
(iii) Closing down the tar sands, not rationalizing the continuation  of the tar sands to fund renewable energy

Summer School on Geoengineering GovernanceBy
Sue Hiscocks - July 7, 2019

A conference on ‘geoengineering’ will take place August 5 – 11 in Banff, Alberta at the Banff Center. “As the severity of climate change risks become clear, geoengineering techniques (i.e. chemtrail spraying, weather modification) are increasingly both receiving attention and generating controversy. These technological responses appear to offer substantial risk – reduction opportunities, serious new risks, and novel and potentially severe governance challenges.” 

 

The event, sponsored by the Emmet Inst. and Environment at UCLA School of Law, including speaker David Keith (associated with University of Calgary, Harvard Edu.) and faculty coordinator Amy Chang ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

For years, chemtrails were dismissed as ‘conspiracy theories*’ and ‘vapor trails’. Most planes no longer produce vapor trails, bypassing turbine engines. Two nozzles behind the engines dispense nano-particles such as aluminum, barium to create ‘trails’.

 

Present legislation doesn’t restrict chemical spraying in our atmosphere. Justice Laws Website ‘Weather Modification Act’ 1985 R.S.C. W5 requires: 

  1.  Administration to be informed (Government in Council)
  2.  a fine of $1,000 on the source.

 

In her book Chemtrails, HAARP* and the Full Spectrum Dominance, Elana Freeland states, “Laid daily over all 28 NATO nations, chemtrails linger for hours, spreading out into cirrus contrailus cloud cover in the name of weather engineering and amelioration of ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change’. Extreme weather, floods, droughts, snowstorms in hurricanes etc. is indeed due to HAARP and other ionospheric heaters around the globe blasting the ionosphere and ionizing out atmosphere with microwaves for various political, economic and biological agendas.” Being able to manipulate weather as a weapon of war is a considerable global power chip. (p 257)

 

In a recent interview, July 19 with George Nori on Coast to Coast radio she discussed her new book, Under an Ionized Sky for Chemtrails to Space Fence Lockdown. (©2018 Feral House & Freeland) she explains how connectivity thro nanoparticles is tied to ultrasonic weapons systems – part of a weaponized space program shrouded by secrecy. Technocracy by an elite with deep pockets; scientists, technologists, military, industrial interests, Artificial Intelligence running smart systems into satellite surveillance, etc. are mentioned.

 

It seems we need a Non-Partisan Inquiry by a coalition government to address effects of geo-engineering, ozone depletion and global warming now. International regulations and oversight must be enacted immediately if we are to regain climate stability and survive! Cooperation is the key.

altFirst Nations in Ontario have run out of patience. For 43 years, the forest industry has been conducting aerial spraying of glyphosate herbicide on Indigenous lands – a “rain of death” used in forest management practice that has slowly been killing off a wide range of animals, plants, fish and insects. First Nations have tried to stop this practice since the 1990s through a variety of measures including meetings with logging companies and government officials, protests and reports, but all to no avail. The “rain of death” keeps coming.
 
 
Now, members of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Elders of the North Shore of Lake Huron say they will be going to court to force the Canadian federal government to live up to Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850. That treaty guarantees First Nations in the area the right to hunt, fish, gather berries and use plant medicines in traditional territories. The TEK Elders say that by allowing the aerial spraying to continue, the Trudeau government is violating this treaty and the Constitution Act of 1982, which reaffirms those rights.
 
“We’re done waiting,” Raymond Owl, one of the founding members of TEK, told the press in April. [1] Formed in 2014, the TEK Elders group is comprised of Elders from 21 bands in the area.

DearJason Kenny,

 

Thank you so much for accepting responsibility for turning off the taps to BC.

Your friendly "overworked and underepresented" environmentalist.

 

What the %^&*$#@ are you thinking shutting down Alberta's oil exports to BC?

Your not so friendly oil industry.

Your not so happy oil patch worker.

Canadian wheat exports to Italy are still low due to the use of glyphosate. Italy, the country that chose this ban on chemicals in the European Union, did not return to its position, Radio-Canada reported.

Italy, one of Canada's two biggest wheat buyers, stopped ordering in large quantities after learning that some local farmers used glyphosate to ripen grains, Radio-Canada said. The result: a 70% reduction in Canadian wheat imports for six months, from November 2017 to August 2018.

United Nations instructs Canada to suspend Site C dam construction over Indigenous rights violations
The world's foremost racial discrimination committee says Canada must work with Indigenous communities to find an alternative to the $10.7 billion hydro project in B.C.
Sarah Cox Jan 9, 2019  
https://thenarwhal.ca/united-nations-instructs-canada-to-suspend-site-c-dam-construction-over-indigenous-rights-violations/In a rare rebuke, the United Nations has instructed Canada to suspend construction of the Site C dam on B.C.’s Peace River until the project obtains the “free, prior and informed consent” of Indigenous peoples.
 
 
Canada has until April 8 to report back to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination outlining steps it has taken to halt construction of the hydro project, which would flood 128 kilometres of the Peace River and its tributaries in the heart of Treaty 8 traditional territory.
 
The unusual request from one of the world’s top human rights bodies was made by committee chair Noureddine Amir in a December 14 letter to Canada’s UN Ambassador Rosemary McCarney.
 
It comes as Canada vies for a coveted seat on the UN Security Council and two Treaty 8 First Nations await a court date to determine if the Site C project unjustifiably infringes on their constitutionally protected treaty rights, as they claim in civil actions filed last January.
 
“The Committee is concerned about the alleged lack of measures taken to ensure the right to consultation and free, prior and informed consent with regard to the Site C dam, considering its impact on indigenous peoples’ control and use of their lands and natural resources,” wrote Amir, an Algerian law professor and former diplomat.
 
“The Committee is further concerned that the realization of the Site C dam without free, prior and informed consent, would permanently affects the land rights of affected indigenous peoples in the Province of British Columbia. Accordingly, it would infringe indigenous peoples’ rights protected under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.”
 
Canada missed an August 2018 deadline to report back to the committee on the Site C project, which was approved by the federal government in 2014 and green-lighted by B.C.’s new NDP government in December 2017.

Manitoba’s hydro mess points to Canada’s larger problem with megadams

As most of the Western world moves away from large-scale hydro projects, decommissioning dams across the planet, Canada is digging in with a trio of projects, the costs of which are spiralling out of control
Sarah Cox
Nov 22, 2018 12
For eight years, Graham Lane headed a watchdog commission that raised red flag after red flag about the Keeyask dam hydro project on Manitoba’s Nelson River.
 
Politicians ignored the warnings and in 2012 Lane resigned as chair of Manitoba’s Public Utilities Board, concerned that Manitoba Hydro had strayed far from its main purpose — to provide low cost energy to Manitobans.
 
Now the retired chartered accountant is speaking out in the hopes of stemming the losses from the Keeyask dam project and a related transmission line, which he calls “an albatross around the necks of Manitobans.”
 
“In Manitoba basically everything has gone wrong,” Lane told The Narwhal. “It’s quite a disaster.”
