Canada has been hailed by some as a leader in the fight to combat climate change. But it is also moving forward with a project to expand a multibillion-dollar oil pipeline to the country's west coast.

The Trans Mountain pipeline has become a flashpoint for politicians, environmentalists and Indigenous groups, many of whom say they weren't adequately consulted on the project and fear a spill could harm their traditional territories.

Big Oil’s mantra that “we have to get our oil to market” is untrue. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), effectively a ministry of propaganda for Big Foreign Oil in Canada, spends millions to convince you that what is good for Big Oil is good for Canada.

The 2019 federal election has given Jagmeet Singh, leader of Canada's New Democratic Party, a golden opportunity. To be sure, the party's caucus was reduced to a band of 24, but a strong campaign by Singh staved off an even harsher fate that had loomed in the earlier polls. And in a minority government situation, Singh is in a pivotal position to influence the direction of the next Liberal government.

Global wave of transit fare strikes hits Toronto

They entered the station without paying, then jumped the barriers and held them open for other passengers to go through.

Around 20 climate justice activists in Toronto flooded into Osgoode station, the subway station closest to City Hall, on Nov. 29, filling it with a chant: “Public transit should be free!
