Wish: federal parties' political hierarchies take first steps towards a cross-party climate ”war cabinet”, as suggested in the Green Party’s "Mission Possible”.

When I think about what child care means for families in B.C., I think of all the patchwork calendars stuck to fridges across the province telling the child care story of each household. The mother-in-law, the uncle and the best friend are on deck this week, and dad will have to leave work early next week. It’s a puzzle of names, dates and times that only the family can understand.

Betty was very quick of wit, usually quite agreeable and very funny.  She was gentle, accepting, and supportive and she rarely took crap from anyone.  She always had a ready response.

The rush to exploit and sell fossil fuels as quickly as possible before the reality of climate disruption becomes too great to deny or ignore has generated some Orwellian rationalizations.

I recently heard the difficulties of corner stores are experiencing in our city — some unable to keep doors open due to lack of business.

Denmark recently had an election, prior to which 1.2 percent of the population called for a more aggressive response to the climate emergency.  Danes now have a government that has strengthened its 2030 target to reduce carbon emissions by 70% below the 1990 level.

Canada's pitiful target is 30% below 2005 levels by 2030.
