Environmental Racism (January 30, 2022)

Good Sunday Morning!

Tomorrow, Parliament will resume after a long break that followed a long break, punctuated by an unnecessary election. Since the end of June, we have had only three weeks of work in the House. Based on the testiness, in fact, downright nastiness of Conservative actions, in recent Finance Committee meetings that continued through January, I think the mood in Parliament will be unpleasant.

Just a sidenote that it is wonderful to be engaged in open and collegial work between MPs and the party. Not commenting on the past- just celebrating progress!

Good Sunday Morning!

It actually is beginning to feel like a New Year, but the walloping snow storms plus Omicron, school closures and lock-downs certainly blunt the usual feeling of being back in the swing of things.  Add to that my own circumstance of slow recovery from the most recent knee replacement, and I would like to re-set the calendar at pre-Christmas.   Continue reading Net Zero consultation (January 9, 2022)
