Several years ago, our family went to a holiday season performance at a kids’ art space in downtown Vancouver. The venue was also hosting an exhibit about children’s visions of the city 100 years from then. Most of the illustrations were dystopian scenes from an early 22nd-century future. The sea level rises anticipated under worst-case climate scenarios were depicted through submerged skyscrapers and washed-out roads; eco-apartheid was implied in crayon, with colourful but unmistakably unwelcoming border walls to keep out the teeming masses of Californian climate refugees.
NDP leader Jagmeet Singh says the Trudeau government is "hypocritical" for celebrating Indigenous culture on National Indigenous Peoples Day while still fighting Indigenous kids in court and delaying action on the MMIWG and TRC reports.
