    Marc SpoonerFrom Nicole Sarauer: For everyone talking about the Saskatoon panhandling bylaw, a recent BC court decision sheds light on the issue from a judicial human rights perspective. If I could fist pump my way through a court decision, I would (and did): [1] Near the end of the 19th Century, the poet, author and Nobel laureate Antole France composed this oft-cited saying: “[t]he law in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.” This quote captures the cynicism attached to the simplistic notion that so long as everyone is treated the same, equality will exist. .. [104] ...It would be unreasonable and naïve to suggest that sleeping on public property or aggressive panhandling (or other behaviours thought to contravene the Safe Streets Act, S.B.C. 2004, c. 75, or the Trespass Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 46) are behaviours that any member of the public is likely to engage in. It is understood that such behaviours are associated with people that we assume are street homeless. http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/SC/15/05/2015BCSC0534.htm

    Peter OrmondThe heartbreak of seeing an oil spill off the coast of Vancouver is only a small preview of what seems likely to come once the amount of oil tankers navigating those waters increases sevenfold. Sadly, it was really quite predictable. The Environment Canada Environmental Emergencies office in Vancouver was closed by the federal government, and sixty staff nationwide specifically trained to deal with oil spills lost their jobs. "The Harper government also mothballed the Kitsilano Coast Guard station in 2013 that used to be one of the busiest in the country. This life-threatening decision to local mariners saved Ottawa the whopping sum of $700,000 per year. Coast Guard officials gamely maintained that the closure had no impact on their reaction to the spill. However, a former commander at the station told a local radio station that had the station been operating, the response time would have been six minutes instead of six hours." http://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2015/04/10/Vancouver-Preview-Spill-from-Hell/ Environment Canada has cut its Compliance Promotion and Enforcement, marine pollution and emergency response budgets over the coming years, raising questions, when cuts to other federal departments are added in, about just how the department can continue to operate, much less enforce the 209 conditions that the Joint Review Panel has laid down for the Enbridge Northern Gateway project, not mention future projects connected with LNG and mining in the northwest. http://nwcoastenergynews.com/2014/03/14/5964/enviroment-canada-cuts-enforcement-marine-pollution-emergency-budgets/ Under Harper, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans also no longer does research on how oil spills may affect the ecosystem. At all. And this after destroying libraries of scientific information gathered by Canadian scientists for generations that might have helped us better understand the impacts and who knows, maybe even deal with them better. How can Canadians not be outraged over the government book burning OUR research, gathered by Canadian scientists and paid for by Canadian tax dollars over generations? Read the chilling federal document about 'culling' research libraries, reducing marine Search and Rescue services, defunding species at risk recovery programs, closing Conservation and Protection offices, and more here: http://thetyee.ca/News/2013/12/30/Harper-Library-Closures/ So if it's so desperately urgent that a balanced budget be tabled just in time for the election that we're shaving off a few hundred thousand here that was preserving scientific research, and a couple of hundred thousand more that ran a coast guard station that could literally mean life and death for some, and a couple of hundred thousand that might pay for Canada to have oil spill experts on hand in case something exactly like what just happened happens, where aren't we counting our pennies and slashing expenditures? Well, if we consider just this week's impact on the BC coastline from a $700,000 cut to the coast guard, it tells us a lot to know that the same "fiscally conservative" government is spending enough of our public dollars on partisan ads to convince us they are doing a wonderful job that they could have funded that coast guard station for more than a hundred years with it. Because it's clearly not important to this government to do well by Canadians, but it's vitally important to them to create the illusion of doing so. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/that-75-million-in-ads-you-paid-for/article23824771/ And what happened to those federal oil spill experts that were let go just as the government opened the floodgates to all sorts of new spill risks by ending the process of environmental assessments for pipeline projects? Well, I don't know, but it's clear none of them are going to find work with the NEB any time soon. Canada's National Energy Board doesn't have any spill experts, or pipeline safety experts, or ecologists, or health experts, or members of any community or group that might be impacted by a pipeline project, among their number. Only people with direct ties to the oil industry need apply, which is why it seems they've never met a risky oil project that they didn't love. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/national-energy-board-s-impartiality-over-pipeline-decisions-questioned-1.2824507 Still, what can you expect from a government that lets oil companies write policy for it outright? http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/yan-roberts/omnibus-harper-oil_b_2474752.html Don't you think it's time for a change?
