Last stop on my tour of Abitibi-Témiscamingue and the Laurentians; a stop at the Residences Stephen Jake Beaven in Montcalm Quebec where a coalition of local residents built and paid for a fully functional medical clinic only to be told, after the construction was complete, that the provincial government...

Excellent meeting with Shannon Chief from the Anishinaabe Nation! Shannon is deeply involved with the struggle to preserve her nation’s traditional way of life. She believes that the best way to protect the land is through teaching about language, culture and environmental stewardship. It was a great to get the...

This afternoon, Jessica Wells and I stopped by the Matamec Mining Corporation office in Témiscaming Québec to reiterate the Green Party of Québec's opposition to their controversial rare earth mining project near Lake Kipawa. The project that Matamec is proposing involves using over 160k litres of water per hour, 365 days per...

The Trudeau Liberals have just approved a plan to export massive amounts of liquified natural gas (LNG), obtained through fracking, to Asian markets. The controversial Petronas #LNG project is incompatible with Canada's obligations under the Paris accord and will ensure the continuation of hydraulic fracturing and increasing GHG emissions for decades. When it...

Pipeline companies have no respect for indigenous peoples, their lands or sacred burial sites. By attacking members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe the oil industry will only galvanise opposition to these highly polluting and environmentally unsustainable colonial pipeline projects.

This morning I am in Gatineau/Ottawa to support off-reserve Aboriginal people who will deliver an important message to the Governor General and the Queen. The Daniels decision of the Supreme Court has just forced governments to recognize the status of off-reserve indigenous people. Despite the defeat of the Harper government, there...

How can we claim that the cultural genocide is over? To this day our high school history courses barely mention residential schools. It also fails to implement even the most basic recommendations of the truth and reconciliation commission. The provincial government needs to go back to the drawing board with...

Excellent presentation at Concordia this evening by members of the Elsipogtog Mi'kMaq first nation. In 2013 members of the Mi'kMaq nation successfully put an end to hydraulic fracturing in New Brunswick after months of direct action, roadblocks and pressure tactics. They were brutalized by members of the RCMP on several...

I am at the tenth annual vigil to demand that the federal government hold a public inquiry into the missing and murdered aboriginal women. Ten years of vigils, marches and political rallies under Mr. Harper's racist government and absolutely nothing has changed. https://www.facebook.com/alex.tyrrell.92/posts/1676348352578453
