ADDED 18-03-21: I should have explained that this is “the moving story of Japanese CDNS during WWII…through the eyes of a young girl.”

To understand me & mine, it’s helpful to read this book and why my Uncle felt more @ home in Brasil* than he did in  his country of birth.

The ‘Legacy’ SHOULD have been that this is part of the Canadian curriculum…me…I found it decades ago browsing in the CanLit section just AFTER high school.

2018-Jan-20 A year of action and hope

Dear friend,

A year after a new president entered the White House, his actions continue to reverberate through the news and into our homes.

In times of peril our human instinct is to “fight or flight.” We are encouraged to see our community fighting — taking action in support of environmental rights and protecting biodiversity.

Although much has seemed to move backward under the current American regime, we have seen people come together like never before to stand up for their beliefs. Take a moment to celebrate these accomplishments:

  • In 2017 you helped shut down Energy East, the longest pipeline project in North America. Now, the city of New York is suing the five largest oil companies, holding them accountable for the costs of climate change.
  • While the U.S. has made an effort to revive coal, Canada is closing its coal plants and shifting to renewable energy.
  • Canada has vowed to uphold its commitment to the Paris Agreement, along with the rest of the international community.
  • In October, the federal government announced it will review proposed changes to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act by June. We’re hopeful that in 2018, the right to a healthy environment may be included in federal law for the first time.

And this is just the beginning!

This fight goes beyond borders. It unites all humanity.

We live on one planet. We are one nature.


P.S. Nothing can stop us if we stand together. Protect your rights and values, and Earth’s climate and ecosystems.
