The government failed the public in preparing for Covid-19, and is failing to prepare for the climate and ecological crisis.

Now is the time in human history that we must combine our skills, knowledge and wisdom. The government must prioritise people and planet, so we can #decidetogether how [we] should move on so that the future is better.

On Saturday, May 9, 2020 a large cavalcade wended its way through the city of Oshawa, past the major city hospital (Lakeridge Health) and Hillsdale Terraces, a long-term care home where Covid-19 has infected 42 residents (of whom 14 died), and 13 staff members. The cavalcade of 65+ vehicles ended up at the sprawling General Motors Assembly Complex, now mostly empty since GM abandoned vehicle production last December.
