Mark Jaccard yesterday said he is "horribly let down" by Prime Minister Stephan Harper's failure to "competently" enact emissions regulations in 2007 which would have kept his Kyoto Protocol promises on track to 2020. Harper himself, Jaccard says, formally withdrew from the Kyoto processes while charging the previous Liberal government with "incompetence" in neglecting to set in motion adequate policies to reach Kyoto goals.

Our 2014 May Day celebration was a huge success. We had music from Solace and Eamon Danzig. We had poetry from Rashad and a powerful presentation from the inimitable Afi Bell.

Kilaika Baruti gave an informative and moving presentation about the history of May Day and the story of Lucy Parsons, a labor activist whose husband Albert was judicially murdered for his role in the original May Day. Gary Stuard gave a long and powerful explanation of the way that capitalism is destroying our environment. And there were other speakers.
