One of the people responsible for saddling Regina with the huge StadiumII debt is criticizing another person responsible for the huge debt, except for this botched demolition.
I enjoyed these presentations, and you especially have to watch the concluding speech by Ella.
The adults spent most of the time driving/talking though, but it was worthwhile learning about more-fair ways to shut down the fossil fuel industry than waiting for the inevitable lay-offs after extended climate/water/soil/wildlife/people destruction.
At lunch, to entertain the crowd at the Just Transitions summit in Regina, musician and song writer Laura Stewart played her carbon tax song. It’s pretty catchy, and I hope the PM listens to it.
Here are some useful tweets about Just Transition away from fossil fuels, and the Regina summit on the subject. I have videos and photos on an earlier blog post too.
Check back later for more videos from the event.*****
The organizers will have edited content from it online at a later time.
Here are my videos and photos from the two day event.
The point was to find paths to implement a just transition for workers in fossil fuel industries in Saskatchewan, and what that means in our colonial and capitalist economy. Industries in the boom/bust cycle are infamous for shutting down within a day, and throwing the local economy into chaos, so just transitions is a solution to that problem, for a more fair transition to the renewable economy that can replace fossil fuels.
