FISH FARM DISASTER- #SaveOurWildSalmon

Attention!! Please write John Horgan and Andrew Weaver, and tell them not to renew salmon farms licenses of occupation. Thank You!
John Horgan: premier@gov.bc.ca
Andrew Weaver: andrew.weaver@greenparty.bc.ca















I just wanted to cry after watching this. Salmon, beautiful beautiful salmon, that have given their lives for thousands of years to help whales, humans, bears, cedar trees, wolves, herring, ...everything they help everything survive. They are the ABUNDANCE that we have taken for granted an LOOK at the evil here. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

HEARTBREAKING!!

PUPPETS FOR PEACE - "Peace Dancer Project"

Have you heard about Puppets for Peace? https://puppetsforpeace.org/



 "September 23 & 24, 2017, PUPPETS FOR PEACE, in Victoria, B.C. celebrates the UN International Day of Peace with a nonpartisan inter-generational community festival. This year we focus on North America’s first puppeteers with The Roy Henry Vickers PEACE DANCER Project. Our full festival includes a cultural mosaic of artistic activities united through the art of the puppet."


The Indiegogo has ended but you can still donate for this if you would like, they could use it
Check out the link for all the great details.
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/puppets-for-peace-roy-henry-vickers-peace-dancer--2#/ 

This is what Tim wrote when I inquired about sharing the info.
----------------------------
Hi Tina, please share and spread the word as much as possible. I am better being in contact via timgosley@telus.net

 ... yes the Indiegogo is finished but I thought it defined the project well. If you know folks wanting to donate we still could use a couple of thousand. However we have enough to do the project in some form and I think it will be pretty neat. Thank you for your interest. I'll check out your blog when I'm on a better computer. Tim

Solar Eclipse 2017- Vanier Park- Vancouver BC

#SolarEclipse2017 Photo © Angel Winterlik
 Little Solar Eclipse Crescents all over my dress and on my leg. How cool is that!

So here are my photos. My kid took a ton too and I will make those into a video later. ..
We had so much fun.

#SolarEclipse2017
Vanier Park
Had a great time. This is the type of thing where you say..."ohhhhh I want to do it again."

I had so many artsy ideas after and I blew it. Should have projected the little eclipses on people's clothes and took photos of them...wouldn't that be a keepsake.

And I had lots of other ideas but needed black paper and chalk.. Many seemed lost in big lineups..sorry that happened to you..but I knew weeks, months ago there were no glasses.

So that's why I researched the binocular, monocular idea. I should have researched the leaf thing more...that was so fun but the geese liked that tree and there's lots of goose poop in my crescents.

Still lots of fun. Lots of photos to edit.. I used 3 cameras and I have all Angel's too. She took 300 photos..that really surprised me...making a video with that... and with all these...it will take a bit so stay tuned.









This is so fun to see!

Reconciliation Carving Series - Langara College- Fall 2017

I was at Langara College today. Had to drop of a few things and they happened to be having the orientation for the Reconciliation carving program. These are the sacred panels we created.
Our program brought together Indigenous and Non-Indigenous and we worked together to design and create them.


One panel honors the children who did not return from the Residential schools and one panel honors the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women.

There is a new program starting this fall and I ask you to inquire and share the info and encourage people to participate so we can all "move forward in a good way!"

------------------------------------------------------------

Reconciliation Carving Series

https://langara.ca/…/ab…/reconciliation-carving-program.html

Space available for September 2017!
Langara's Aboriginal Studies Department, in partnership with the Fine Arts Department, offers a unique Aboriginal carving series that is open to all students.
Students will complete two carving courses and an applied research course. Under the supervision of acclaimed Coast Salish artist Aaron Nelson-Moody, students will collaborate on the creation of two reconciliation house boards. Once complete, the house boards will become part of a planned outdoor Aboriginal space on Langara’s campus. Langara Film Arts students will document the carving process. Read more

----------------------------------------------------------------


There is so much work to be done and it starts with you and me. We must each take responsibility and help heal the wounds and create a better world for our children and children's children.

If you are interested in my TRC Carving Journey you can read about it on my blog here.

Choose Love-Be a Good Neighbour!

 I saw a disturbing post about the world being on the brink of nuclear war and Nazi's in the streets....sound familiar...only this wasn't in the past ...it's right now...this weekend.

STOP!! Right now....
Look at the state of the world and think well about the future you want for yourself, your families and those you love.

Do not let history repeat. Practice love. Teach Love! Love yourself, your family, your neighbour, love the differences. Never embrace hate, greed or ignorance or this will be our fate. Watch this film from 1952.. it was made 10 years before I was born. I saw it in grade 5. It was shocking and imprinted deeply...but it would take years before I realized it.

Warning: violence - not suitable for young children or those triggered by violence.

Beatles - All You Need Is Love from SimDo on Vimeo.

The Beatles Lyrics
"All You Need Is Love"

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy

Nothing you can make that can't be made
No one you can save that can't be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
It's easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

All you need is love (All together, now!)
All you need is love (Everybody!)
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Yee-hai! (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)

Yesterday (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Love is all you need (Love is all you need)
Oh yeah! (Love is all you need)
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah (Love is all you need)
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah (Love is all you need)

Crude Awakening!!--UBCIC- NEWS RELEASE KM TMX



NEWS RELEASE KM TMX: Crude Awakening (Coast Salish Territory/Vancouver, BC – August 11, 2017) The Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) remains steadfast in its ongoing opposition to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMX).

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, UBCIC President, stated, “Though we welcome the BC Government’s commitment to defending the coasts and waterways, and commend BC’s resolve to ensure the Province meets its constitutionally-enshrined, judicially-recognized obligations to consult Indigenous Peoples, for all future generations, we must continue the true fight against increasingly rapid climate change. These devastating mega-projects must obtain the free, prior and informed consent of all affected Indigenous Peoples. Period.”

As defined by the United Nations’ Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous Nations retain the right to provide or withhold their free, prior and informed consent regarding developments on their respective territories. The vast majority of BC remains the unceded territory of Indigenous Nations who remain committed to protecting their inherent rights, their respective cultural beliefs, their families and the natural environment for the benefit of future generations.

The UBCIC firmly believes TMX represents an unacceptable and egregious risk to the clean and healthy ecosystems many Indigenous Peoples and British Columbians’ livelihoods depend upon and directly conflicts with the Trudeau Government’s Paris Agreement commitments to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. Since 2011, the UBCIC has consistently opposed the TMX project, with Grand Chief Stewart Phillip being arrested in November 2014 to protest TMX’s exploration of Burnaby Mountain.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip declared “As long as any Canadian or Provincial government permits environmentally destructive projects that places our communities, families and unceded territories at risk, our Nations and communities will exercise our inherent rights and responsibilities to resist within the courts, in the streets and most certainly, on the land itself.”

21,561 people have signed the Coast Protectors’ pledge: "With our voice, in the courts or the streets, on the water or the land. Whatever it takes, we will stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion."
