If this was a game of hockey, we’d be down to an overtime shootout.

A federal judge has Zambonied a narrow strip of ice for the players to skate on, and six Indigenous legal teams will get to take a shot.

It’s time for the home crowd to stand up and root for them. Please join me in making a donation to the First Nations challenging this toxic, dangerous oil tanker expansion on behalf of all of us.

[I keep asking politicians, when I'm in the same inside or outside space with them, "If the Trans Mountain Expansion is so amazingly good for us, why do you have to lie about it? About Asian markets, about price-per-barrel, about number of jobs, about tax revenues?" - Gene McGuckin]

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama| While airports are opening in affected areas following the passage of Hurricane Dorian through the northern Bahamas, the Minnis Government has blocked local donors and relief supplies from traveling into affected areas.

But while all this unfolds, we at BP can report an environmental disaster is unfolding in the Eastern corridor of Grand Bahama Island.

[ Editor: Common Dreams reported yesterday that the Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that environmental defenders have the right to employ a defence of necessity when being tried for climate-related offences.  This decision follows a similar one from the Minnesota State Supreme Court. 

To date this defence has not been allowed in Canada. Will Offley]

The court's decision, explained one attorney, "creates a strong legal basis for climate protesters to justify their actions in a court of law."

Talk a good game about transforming society on behalf of the 99 per cent, while secretly assuring the one per cent that they have nothing to worry about.

Chief Lee Spahan from Coldwater Indian Band was happy to hear the news: the Federal Court of Appeal will hear his nation’s legal challenge against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

But he said there is still “a long road ahead.”

Thank you for this opportunity to speak.

Before my arrest and throughout more than half a century of volunteer community contributions, I’d always worked within the bounds of law.

I took the longer, legal route to reverse government policies because it was viable to take those routes.

But there are things we know, without a doubt, about climate change that made my response to it on Burnaby Mountain fundamentally different.
