We chat with Carl Meyer about Bill S-5 in this week's newsletter, looking at what the right to a healthy environment could mean when communities like Wilps Gwininitxw, Peguis First Nation and Mi’kmaq Nation seek justice and safety for their people: thenarwhal.ca/newsletter-rig…

Once again, if you're a politician or a police force or a newsroom editor ... it's beyond time to address online hate and harassment seriously. We wrote out some ideas. Over to you because no one should feel unsafe for doing their job.

If the writer(s) of this email is reading this... What the F is wrong with you all? If you don't like their journalism, don't read it. Find your news elsewhere.

And if any politicians or police officer is reading this, do y'all even care to do your jobs???

🧵Long thread, but a summary of the past day: Yesterday, angelyn francis, Jenna Moon & I were targeted in the latest violent, misogynistic, racist campaign against Canadian journalists. We have decided to post it without censoring anything. TW for violence, racism, sexual assault

i am named in this email and my first reaction is also my second and third: man, what losers.

my fourth is: it skirts, as they always do, outright threats making this something police - even if they had the wherewithal - won't take action on.

You have to wonder... What'll it take for police and government leaders and social media companies to start taking threats against journalists seriously?

60 years of nuclear waste deposited deep into the Canadian Shield? No, says 49 northern First Nations chiefs. New from me: The next Land Back battleground will be north of Lake Superior, as Chiefs say no to nuclear waste on their traditional lands theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…

'15 pedestrians were hit by cyclists in Toronto between 2006 and 2013, none fatally. In the same time period, the number of pedestrians killed by a driver was 212.' thenarwhal.ca/opinion-high-p… I want to read Denise Balkissoon's column aloud at the corner of Bloor and Parkside

The really cool thing about being a podcast host is that listeners are really really nice. 🥲🥹

It's true, I'm leaving The Backbench Pod and you should all listen to this week's episode about why political leadership can't seem to meet this chaotic moment: canadaland.com/podcast/44-lea…

Toronto wants 75% of trips <5 kms to be on foot, bike or transit by 2030. But, as we've seen in High Park, 'the city is so hostile to cyclists & pedestrians that it’s essentially pushing people into fossil-fuel powered vehicles.'

Always read Denise Balkissoon

Canada has voted for a UN resolution recognizing that a healthy environment is a human right. But some senators say the bill to make this right a law in Canada may be unenforceable, while a UN expert says it needs to be strengthened to be effective: thenarwhal.ca/right-to-healt…

👋🏽 Here's the latest episode of The Backbench Pod! It's an existential convo between me, Jaskaran Sandhu, Ri / ᕒᐊᔦᓬᐄ & drew brown about why political leadership is so uninspiring.

Also, some news: the next episode of The Backbench will be my last.

I loved working with Fatima on this show and when I wasn't working on it, I still loved listening. Tl;dr Fatima is great.
