Against the backdrop of terrible climate calamities, we examine a big win for the UN and multilateralism in protecting our oceans. We also look at how Canada can help save the agency responsible for Palestinian refugees. Finally our new Ukraine Update examines old and new paths to war termination.
Today we consider a new briefing on keeping the door open to diplomacy in Ukraine, the implications of Canada’s China policy for the pivotal Montreal Summit on Biodiversity and the definitional challenge for assault-style rifles in Bill C-21.
We look again at the failure of militarism to address pressing human security needs, consider the remarkable resilience of the UN on its 77th anniversary and end with some wonderful news about Patagonia’s new shareholder – earth.
This week we look at strengthening the Ukraine peace deal, ending loose talk on nuclear war fighting, confronting America’s double standard on territorial integrity, addressing urgent needs in Afghanistan and more.
