Hey everyone. It's almost Canada day. I'm happy to see that Mr. Trudeau has declared a climate emergency, not so happy that the pipeline has been approved.
In terms of postcards I had a major whoopsie. It turns out I've been neglected one MP the entire time! M.P Jagmeet Singh which is pretty terrible considering he's the leader of the NDP.
Maybe that's why he wasn't present in the house when Trudeau declared a climate emergency.
Anyways- now the issue is rectified and I'm including all BC MP's in my mailing list.
Some other cool stuff happened Jonathan Wilkinson, the liberal fisheries minister bringing forward a motion to ban the most harmful single use plastics by 2021.
I wonder how much of this is motivated by the upcoming election and if my wee little postcard project contributed at all.
Happy late Indigenous People's Day by the way! (June 21st)
Here's a photo of me and my brother.

#36 Nuu Chah Nulth Sto:lo: “I feel like it’s kind of woven into my DNA. My mother always told me how we live on unceded land, so I feel like it belongs to me. So it kind of bugs me when the land is used for dirty projects without actually consulting an indigenous person. They consult chiefs and councils which are a colonial construct. We didn’t have that before colonialism, so it feels like they’re talking to themselves.”
