    Earlier this spring, the Alberta government revealed their plan to remove 175 of Alberta’s provincial parks from the park system without public consultation or park-by-park justification. This move undermines democracy and threatens the commons; the ecological, social and cultural resources, and heritages that are shared by all.

    The Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary and Medicine Hat chapters of the Council of Canadians hosted an online town hall meeting on June 17, 2020 to discuss this threat.

    Representatives of the collective “Putaendo Resiste” from Chile’s central region speak about their long struggle to declare themselves “Chile’s first territory free of mining” and how that process has recently been made even more complicated due to COVID-19. MiningWatch Canada will also briefly update on the project and its links to Canadian capital. Over the last decade, Canada has become the most important foreign investor in mining in Chile. The conflict in Putaendo with “Los Andes Copper” represents the power of Canadian interests in mining development in Chile.

The narrative peddled by government and industry is that LNG is “ethical,” “environmental,” and “economic.” We’ll bring together fantastic expert guests and frontline activists to debunk that myth, while connecting the dots of resistance from coast to coast to coast.
