I'm back with another update, as it has been a big day in the insurance world. Earlier today, the news broke that two German insurers, Talanx and Munich Re, are dropping their insurance policies for the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline and ruling out the tar sands sector entirely, following years of campaign pressure and Indigenous-led engagement!

The Province of BC has been ordered by the BC Court of Appeal to reconsider the project conditions it has placed on the Trans Mountain pipeline. Premier Horgan made a promise: he would defend BC’s coast. It’s time for him to live up to it

Back in 2017,  Jamie Margolin, a Seattle high school student, founded an organization called Future Voters for 350ppm. (“Future voters” meaning young people who can’t vote yet, and “350 ppm” referring to a safe level of atmospheric carbon dioxide that the world blew past long ago). But things didn’t go as planned, and the group ended up being short-lived.

Friends, 

What a week. It has been hard to keep up with the breaking news. We’re all concerned for the wellbeing and safety of our families, friends, and communities. I know it’s a tough time for everyone, so I wanted to write to you today and to share some of what I’ve been seeing.

Last week, as businesses and schools began closing in response to COVID-19, I was thinking a lot about those who are most at risk — seniors, those with chronic illness, health care workers, and people without the time or resources to prepare.

The images and stories coming out of the the RCMP raids on Wet’suwet’en are disheartening, disturbing and reflect a certain dishonesty about Canadian officials’ self-described commitment to Indigenous rights and reconciliation.

“How many more signs do we need? By watching these, people will understand now is the time.”

That’s Jonathan Mintram. He is the executive producer of a series of video shorts about the climate emergency being released by Extinction Rebellion and Amazon Watch in collaboration with Mobilize Earth. The first is out today.

The 12 videos are public service announcements, but with a difference. A big difference, you might say, considering the first one “stars” Oscar favourite Joaquin Phoenix.
