On July 5th we’ll be marching (rain or shine!) in Toronto for an economy that works for people and the planet. The march will start at 1:00pm at Queen’s Park.
RSVP for the March for Jobs Justice & the Climate here: http://jobsjusticeclimate.ca/
The march will tell the story of a new economy that works for people and the planet. It starts with justice, creates good work, clean jobs and healthy communities, recognizes that we have solutions and shows we know who is responsible for causing the climate crisis.

Indigenous Solidarity Committee is excited to work with the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education to make hearts and spread the message of the Heart Garden project. Sherri Vansickle, a lecturer in the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education, her two classes, and members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 4207 staked 900 colourful foam hearts amongst the ornamental grasses, shrubs and flowers filling gardens throughout the Brock campus.
The Heart Garden project was created to honour the children lost to the Residential School system and their families. The Honouring Memories: Planting Dreams project is an initiative with the First Nations Child and Caring Society of Canada, led by Dr. Cindy Blackstock. This project is sponsored by CUPE 4207 – Indigenous Solidarity Committee, Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education, and the Social Justice Research Institute.
