Action Needed Now for GLI
Vote to send S-233 to Committee
Senator Colin Deacon, a respected business leader and supporter of Basic Income, recently gave a powerful speech in the Senate on why S-233 should be brought to Committee. Click here to watch it.
Back in December 2021, two bills for a Guaranteed Livable Basic Income in Canada were introduced in Parliament: Bill S-233 by Senator Kim Pate and C-223 by MP Leah Gazan.
Recently, in its second reading, the bill was actively debated. Soon, our senators will vote on whether to take the bill to the next step – sending it to Committee – where experts would be brought in to testify and evidence showing that Basic Income works would be presented to Parliament.
This is a pivotal moment for Basic Income in Canada. Urge the senators to vote to send S-233 to Committee. We need your help to contact your senators. It only takes a few seconds. Let them know of the importance of this bill, and its meaning to you.
Sign Your Support for Impact Assessment of Small Modular Reactors
SMRs were removed from Designated Projects list requiring a federal Impact Assessment, due to lobbying by both the nuclear industry and the nuclear regulator (CNSC), responding to the draft new 2019 Impact Assessment Act. So this part of a federally regulated industry now does not get assessed under the federal IA Act! This constitutes ‘deregulation’ – the claim by the nuclear industry, that the narrow ‘environmental assessment’ under the regulator CNSC procedures is ‘equivalent’ to an IA, is FALSE. So CRED-NB has made a reasoned, researched, comprehensive argument requesting that Minister Guilbeault use his powers to designate the SMRs slated for the Lepreau site, for a full Impact Assessment under the federal IA Act.
The CRED website has more details – The info page on the CRED-NB site is HERE.
Please sign on to our Action Letter CLICK HERE which sends a letter of support to the Minister for our request. We need as many letters going to Minister Guilbeault as possible, as there will be resistance and we need overwhelming numbers, so please send this news along to anyone who cares about the related issues in New Brunswick or across Canada.
We also have a Facebook posting (July 4th) to share https://www.facebook.com/crednb
Thank you for your support!
