Ep. 10: Organizing against corporate power grabs like the TPP & CETA

Thank you, dear listeners, for your patience as Marsha and Brenna took a break to settle into new jobs and school applications. We are back today with an episode focusing on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a corporate power grab masquerading as a trade deal. While you may have heard that it's likely the agreement has met its demise with the election of Donald Trump to the American presidency, it's more important than ever to organize against the consolidation of corporate power, including the TPP and its sister agreement, CETA. Tune in to hear Brittany Smith and Fatin Chowdhury, campaigners with the organization Leadnow, on why these trade deals have impacts far beyond "just trade." Importantly, we discuss how opposing these deals can foster inclusive, intersectional movements that stand in solidarity with communities on the front lines of corporate and state violence. If you are concerned about the need for urgent climate action, Indigenous sovereignty and rights, labour right...

Ep. 9: Fighting for Clayoquot Sound & Vancouver Island's Last Great Forests

Welcome back to the Built Environment! Recently, Brenna travelled to Tofino, British Columbia, which is located on unceded Nuu-chah-nulth territory. A short water taxi ride away from the town known to many as Canada's surf capital is Clayoquot Sound, one of the world's richest and most unique ecosystems. Today's episode features interviews with Torrance Coste, our friend from the Canadian Youth Delegation and the Vancouver Island Campaigner for the Wilderness Committee; and Bonny Glambeck, longtime Tofino-based activist and co-founder of the organization Clayoquot Action. [See if you can spot Torrance amongst the clear-cutting of old growth in this episode's photo. Hint: he is wearing a red jacket] Brenna was fortunate to visit Torrance during a trail-building trip on Meares Island, where old growth cedar trees are 800 years old or more. While in Tofino, Brenna learned that while 1/3 of the trees around Clayoquot Sound are old growth cedar, they comprise 2/3 of the trees being logge...

Ep. 8: Pipeline Politics & Resistance in British Columbia! #StopKinderMorgan

We're excited to share an episode that delves into current politics and legal issues of the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipelines! Brenna sat down with Eugene Kung and Gavin Smith of West Coast Environmental Law to break down what the future of TransMountain expansion looks like -- particularly in the wake of the Federal Court of Appeal's ruling that the Canadian government failed to meaningfully consult communities on Northern Gateway. Also featured in this episode is Peter McCartney, climate campaigner with the Wilderness Committee in Vancouver. Tune in to hear his thoughts on Kinder Morgan consultations, Canada's climate targets, as well as the proliferation of Liquified Natural gas (LNG) projects in BC. Northern Gateway was approved in 2014 by a National Energy Board (NEB) in the pocket of Stephen Harper's government. As it turns out, the gutting of environmental assessment and protection in 2012 resulted in essentially meaningless consulta...
