Canadian Perspectives, Autumn 2022

Canadian Perspectives is a perk of membership with the Council and this issue features articles on some of the most pressing issues facing our communities, country and planet. You’ll also read about inspiring ways we are coming together to build community power and a better future for all.

Water is not for sale

Increased climate impacts require action, not privatization
The combined impact of climate-related stress on natural water infrastructure and decades of neoliberal privatization of built water infrastructure has put our most precious natural resource at extreme risk. If we want to ensure our communities are prepared for the climate struggle ahead, we need to protect our water and ensure it remains a resource for the people, not for profit.

Pharma pills

Our pharmacare or theirs
Pharmacare legislation is coming – but it remains to be seen if it will be a public plan…or Big Pharma’s plan. To ensure that pharmacare to come is truly for the people, we’ll need to continue to hold the government to account.

Radioactive Waste

Returning to our grassroots
This year, Council of Canadians chapter activists showed us what a truly grassroots campaign looks like – and what we can accomplish when we come together and collectively guide a campaign from start to finish.

These articles appear in the 2022 issue of Canadian Perspectives, the Council of Canadians’ annual magazine.
