1. Company hopes ring of fire will be open for business.
The ring of fire in the James Bay lowlands has been an area of contention for decades. With the Provincial elections upon us many companies are looking to the new leaders to give them access to the ring of fire. The current deal on the table would see the aboriginal groups in the area holding a share in the rail lines that would be used to carry the resources out of the ring of fire. Harvey Yesno the chief of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation says that the people want more than just a few jobs, They want to see the land protected. The companies are looking to the provincial elections to see if any of the new leaders will help with their cause.

2. Deportation or abuse? The new choice for women immigrants to Canada.
The end of 2012 brought changes to the immigration act. One change was that if new immigrants were being sponsored by a spouse they had to live with that person for two years before they were able to leave. This has opened up a new avenue for abuse. Many of these women who are coming into canada are being abused by their partners and feel that they cannot leave. This abuse includes distributing sexually explicit photos and physical violence. This law was repealed by many women’s groups who were worried about the abuse that would be faced. The immigration minister decided that he would include a clause that allowed for abused women to call a hotline in order to be able to be released from the 2 year requirement. The hotline is …read more

The Daily GRRR! HEADLINES for May 28, 2014

1. March Against Monsanto
On Saturday, millions of people took to the streets around the world in protest of Monsanto. More than 400 demonstrations were held in 52 countries, including nearby in Brantford and Six Nations. Opposition to Monsanto stems from serious concerns including the patenting of seeds, interfering with traditional farming practices and making farmers dependent on the multinational for their seeds each year, the furthering of monocultures as Monsanto seeds replace a plethora of traditional varieties, the potential for unknown mutations to occur in genetically modified seeds, the health effects of eating genetically modified foods for which no long term studies have ever been conducted, and the potential for genetically modified crops to contaminate non-genetically modified varieties. Failures of the crops to perform as advertised also have harrowing consequences, as evidenced by the epidemic of farmer suicides in India after Monsanto’s Bt cotton failed. Youth organisers of the Brantford-Six Nations demo were quoted in the Two Row Times as saying, “Nobody is going to have control over their own food, that’s scary. If you’re concerned about your health, then you should be concerned about this corporation.”

2. Food Prospects Drying Up
Following up on a story we covered earlier, the severity of drought plaguing much of the United States has led California to implement restrictions on water use during the summer, which will affect the irrigation of farms. This is California’s third year of what officials are calling a catastrophic drought. As a result, farmers are forced to leave nearly a half million acres of land uncultivated, and some small communities are at risk of running out of drinking water. The regulations are based on a set minimum level of water in 3 watersheds surrounding the Sacramento River, which need to be maintained when fish are present. The move was met with stern opposition from farmers and others who hold rights to the water.

3. Pan Am costs soaring
New revelations about the cost of the 2015 PanAm games in Toronto are coming out from Patrick Allen, the recently-fired director of EMS and health and safety services for the games. Allen comments, “The amount of spending …read more

The Daily GRRR! – May 22, 2014 – In/Security Edition

Welcome, I am your host Rachel Avery and you are listening to The Daily GRRR! In/Security Edition on 100.3fm, CKMS in Waterloo, Ontario. Soundfm.ca on the web. Today is May 22, 2014.

We are broadcasting from the centre of the Haldimand Tract, the occupied Grand River Territory of the Six Nations (Haudenosaunee).

The Daily GRRR! is a project of the Grand River Media Collective; and is supported by the Community Radio Fund of Canada and CKMS.

Today’s feature comes to us from free city radio on CKUT. It’s an interview with Clive Stafford Smith, who is campaigner at Reprieve, a legal organization working internationally to campaign against the illegality of the US military drone strikes currently taking place in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and beyond. The interview focuses on the impacts experienced by communities targeted by the US strikes.

We will begin today with headlines:

The Daily GRRR! HEADLINES for May 22, 2014

1. No Integrity, No Digs! An Enbridge integrity dig site on Line 9 near Burlington was blocked yesterday by activists opposing the pipeline project. The line has over 12 000 anomalies—features that could cause it to fail—so the blockade was held for 12 hours, one hour for every thousand such anomalies. Despite this high number of problems, Enbridge is only conducting a few hundred integrity digs, and a recent report has predicted that Line 9 has a 90% chance of failure in the near term. This flagrant disregard for safety is one reason the project has received massive opposition, alongside Enbridge’s failure to consult Indigenous communities, and the pipeline’s facilitation of tar sands and fracking expansion. The site of yesterday’s blockade is near Bronte Creek, on traditional Mississauga territory, a creek which flows into Lake Ontario. Blockader Danielle Boissineau states, “At every step of the process, the Tar Sands outsources the risks onto our communities and poisons waterways like the Athabasca River and the Bronte creek while companies like Enbridge get rich.”
Line 9 has received the green light from the National Energy Board after public hearings which have been widely criticised as exclusive, and with a decision that did not address the vast majority of evidence presented.

2. Killer Robots
The first multilateral summit on fully autonomous weapons—killer robots—wrapped up last Friday at the United Nations in Geneva. Many governments present expressed their desire for human decisions and control over attacks in warfare, ensuring the human element of killing doesn’t get erased by drones.
Fully autonomous weapons have not yet been developed, but technology is moving in that direction. This type of weapon would select and attack targets without further action by a human operator. 87 countries participated in the four-day Convention on Conventional Weapons meeting of experts on lethal autonomous weapons systems. Human Rights Watch, who reported on the convention, is a co-founder and coordinator of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, a global coalition of 51 …read more
