Environmentalism has been around a long time, usually characterized as a small group of socially extreme ideologues. This type of thinking has managed to sideline environmental arguments in the mainstream, leading to few wins, and even fewer that didn’t correlate with someone getting rich off the change. This week we skip the special guests to hold an internal round-table on the fact that we are pretty used to loosing as a group, why that might be, and what we can do about it.

The last segment turns to a more specific issue, the fact that the CBC recently removed their environmental section to their website, and when questioned upon this responded to our inquiry in an extremely defensive manner. Furthermore, they assured us that the section would conclusively not return. The CBC was already one of the only dedicated environmental news sections of the major news outlets in the country. We are making a rare ask of our audience to call the CBC and ask them, why? Please be polite, we are not asking you to harass them, but we do feel that as our only Canadian public broadcaster, this deserves a proper answer. Call them at 1-866-306-4636 and demand a response to this important issue.

If you live in Toronto! We are holding the first ever Green Majority Open House!

Join us this Sunday to join the conversation and be an active part of the solution!

GREEN MAJORITY MEDIA OPEN HOUSE

Sunday, February 16th 2014 from 5:00pm-6:00pm

 [ANNEX] Centre for Social Innovation – 720 Bathurst (One block from Bathurst Subway Station)

Green Majority Media is a community enterprise that seeks to help the community and environment by working from within the system to create real change now. People and business aren’t the problem, corrupt governments and the amoral multinational corporations that have an incredible influence over them are. We’re holding up a flag of passive resistance by creating alternative networks and business alliances that benefit communities and the environment, instead of mining them for resources and moving on to the next victim. Don’t be a gear, be a lever.

The best way to learn about who we are and what we do, is to come to one of our monthly Open Houses! We work out of the Center for Social Innovation (Annex) in downtown Toronto, Ontario.

Sunday February, 16th 2014 @ 5:00 PM
