May 3, 2020 - A Public Infrastructure Bailout

When: Sunday May 3rd, 1pm

The Canadian government is planning to spend billions on infrastructure to stimulate the economy and recover from COVID-19, including new transit projects and green infrastructure.

But the federal Canada Infrastructure Bank invests in public-private partnerships. From the Presto fare card system to the Confederation LRT in Ottawa, public-private partnerships cost the public more and are less accountable to us.

Join experts and activists to learn about the high stakes of infrastructure privatization in Canada and why projects like transit and water must be publicly owned and democratically controlled for a green & just recovery from COVID-19.

* Vi Bui, Council of Canadians
* Stuart MacKay, Ottawa Transit Riders
* Robert Ramsay, Canadian Union of Public Employees
* Moderated by Vincent Puhakka, TTCriders

Register through Eventbrite to receive a link to the webinar on the morning of the event.
May 3, 2020 - Wet'suwet'en Strong: Resisting a pipeline

Webinar: May 3rd, 1pm

In January, IJV-Canada, alongside thousands of other Canadians, took a stand in solidarity with the Wet'suwet'en people in their struggle to defend their land against a Coastal GasLink pipeline. A brutal RCMP attack on Wet'suwet'en land defenders in early February precipitated a month of rail blockades and direct actions which eventually forced the federal government to the negotiating table. Now, despite the global COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, CGL is continuing to work unabated on the pipeline. Join our webinar to hear from Wet'suwe'ten land defender Jennifer Wickham of the Gidimt'en clan talk about recent updates in the struggle, and answer your questions.
