#Ottawa has not failed #Alberta!!

Watch this video from Oct 15th explaining why #ABoil prices were on the decline.

#BNN US refineries, which have been offline during maintenance work, may help explain the recent decline in Canadian #Oil prices

Bill C69 or C48 did not delay these piplines. Failed environmental assessments & a lack of sincere #Indigenous consultations caused these delays.

#KeystoneXL (Court delays)
#TMX delayed (IC)
#EnergyEast cancelled
#NorthernGateway delayed (IC)

1. This History Thread is about the #indigenous people of India’s #Andaman Islands known as #Sentinelese because they live on North Sentinel Island. Their names for themselves, their island are unknown to the outside world.
2. India’s Andaman Islands are an extension of a Burma/Myanmar mountain range in the Bay of Bengal separated from the mainland when sea levels rose post Ice Age. North Sentinel is to the west of the chain.
3. DNA analysis shows current indigenous peoples inhabited the Andaman Islands for about 18,000 years. Their DNA relates to mainland India’s Pauri Bhuiya and Munda peoples. Languages mostly unique to islands, some links to India mainland and Malaysia. journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…

Panel 2, on granting agencies and #citizenscience w/ @mgfortin_rd @NSERC_CRSNG + Ted Hewitt @SSHRC_CRSH + Serge Marchand @FRQS1 + Louise Poissant @FRQSC + Michael Strong @CIHR_IRSC #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @mgfortin_rd says #citizenscience and participative science is incredibly important. This isn't only including public in research, it's engaging communities who have knowledge incl #indigenous traditional knowledge.
... Current project ongoing, is a northern community that wants to better document the status of their natural resources (air quality, water) and to analyze the impact of #climatechange & other human impacts on these. There is added value to including these communities. #CSPC2018

We really put the FUN in dysfunctional - Canada is a relatively small country on a population standpoint, but we are ever smaller if we are divided across provinces - @cdavidnaylor #CSPC2018
+ the majority of dollars in HERD come from universities, not federal. To note, provinces don't contribute much either, though QuΓ©bec has been a model to follow.
Canada doesn't collaborate well across provincial borders, they work much more with international partners. We have a chance to knit #cdnsci closer together and make our science more national ➑️ we have a chance to realign

#Brazil: A group of farmers and gunmen attacked an #indigenous Bororo village in Mato Grosso do Sul. Two Indians with gunshot wound. The attackers destroyed the whole village. m.topmidianews.com.br/policia/report… via @janetelimelo
Bolsonaro would abolish Brazil’s environment ministry, exposing world’s largest rainforest and its indigenous owners to criminal gangs of loggers and miners. climatechangenews.com/2018/10/08/bol…
"Bolsonaro warns he’s going to rip up the Raposa Serra do Sol Indigenous land. Local ranchers bitterly opposed the creation of this reserve & they killed many indigenous ppl. Bolsonaro wants to give those ranchers guns" MT @Survival en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raposa_Se…

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY

This whole Elizabeth Warren 1/512ths DNA "proof" of Native ancestry hurts Native people because it adds to the Republican attack that we are "race-based" and not citizens of nations. #Indigenous #Termination 1/5
This "race-based" argument was recently cited by a federal judge in Texas to declare ICWA unconstitutional and in violation of the 14th Amendment. The goal here is to declare TRIBES unconstitutional because they are "race-based." #ElizabethWarren #Indigenous #Termination 2/5
The writing is on the wall: Tribes need to get rid of blood quantum or disappear politically.

THREAD. Balanced teams vs. "diversity".

Some people are confused about whether, at @Atlassian, we've shifted our focus from creating intersectional justice and equitabe opportunities for everyone, with a spotlight on those who are underrepresented in tech.

That's easy: NOPE.
We're moving away from *language* that is outdated and a *barrier* to the progress we want to see. Our 2018 State of Diversity report (atlassian.com/diversity/surv…) showed us two problems with the word "diversity" (on top of other issues holding back #diversity & #belonging in tech).
1. People overwhelmingly associated the word with underrepresented or minority groups.
2. The minorities people associated with "diversity" with were gender and racial minorities.

Let's unpack why this is problemmatic af, A LESSON.

This looks like an eye-opener. @Thomas1774Paine is an incredible Patriot and #JammieJourno Check out his book, "How We Dismantled the FBI in our Pajamas." A LOT of us out here. ;) :) #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly

SWAT-clad FBI agents stormed into Mike "Thomas Paine" Moore's home and terrorized his wife and young children at gunpoint after rousting them out of bed. Not once, but TWICE, pointing automatic weapons at the family. #JammieJourno #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly
In response Paine assembled his journalism crew of former feds, launched @true_pundit and literally dismantled the FBI in less than two years with pens and laptops while working from home, often in pajamas. #JammieJourno #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly @cenbrohen

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this: nfb.ca/film/angry_inuk
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

This is EXTREMELY concerning. New research centre on Indigenous smoking is being funded by the tobacco industry.

Yes, you read that right: *funded by the tobacco industry*

medianet.com.au/releases/16667…

(Thread)
It was all smiles and accolades at the launch, but everyone seems to be glossing over the centre’s funding source and the huge ethical problems that raises.

The centre is being funded by The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World. Here’s their President, Derek Yach, talking about the new research centre. vimeo.com/285901659

On Friday, four #Saami Reindeer Herding Communities, from both sides of the Swedish/Norwegian border declared a moratorium at the NΓ‘sa Mountain, to challenge the proposed opening of a mine in the area.

What follows are excerpts from their Moratorium Statement:
Since time immemorial, the NΓ‘sa Mountain has been used as grazing pastures by reindeer herding Saami. Through a system of ecologically sustainable hunting, fishing and reindeer husbandry, this area has become a site where Saami have co-existed with nature on its own terms.
Long before the State colonised the NΓ‘sa Mountain area and decreed that every reindeer herder had to belong to a state-approved herding district, this mountain used to be a privately owned Saami tax district, as well as a reindeer herding district governed by consuetudinary laws.

1. As @blueravenart noted, it is unfortunate that @downiewenjack gets $5million in today's budget but the @NCTR_UM gets nothing. cbc.ca/news/canada/th… #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
2. It is not that the Downie-Wenjack fund, and spaces for reflection and reconciliation, are bad - but we are still fighting for the truth BEFORE reconciliation: downiewenjack.ca #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
3. At a time when anti-Indigenous racism is rampant, Sen. Beyak is beaking off accusing the TRC as fake news while opening and holding space for residential school deniers.... aptnnews.ca/2018/02/21/bey… #Budget2018

Gather around everyone...it’s time for some very TRUE short stories morphed into a unbelievably one in the end.
I’ve grown up in a very mixed family and being a proud biracial kid.
But, let’s rewind to a lifetime ago where I wasn’t comfortable or was constantly questioned about β€œwhat are you”...
Just like any character in their story. I’ve had my own twist and turns in my life.

However, my experiences that always stood out always seem to involve my family.

Buckle up while I share are some stories of young people "not literally dying" over US inequality & failed decisions of Boomer+ generations. Also, keep in mind our youth are and have been waging war on 8 nations simultaneously for more than a decade. cnn.com/2017/08/13/us/…
