AW@L Radio – 2019-03-01 – A Toronto winter with unreliable heat, power, and water in Timbercreek owned apartments

An interview with Louisa, a person working to support residents of  103-105 West Lodge Ave in Toronto as they have faced intermittent heat, power, and water service in their apartments from at least February 2019. The two high rise apartment buildings were recently bought by the multinational asset management firm Timbercreek who have focused on evicting residents through the landlord tribunal while letting the buildings fall further into disrepair.

 

Listen to the podcast here: AW@L Radio – 2019-03-01 – A Toronto winter with unreliable heat, power, and water in Timbercreek owned apartments

In the interview we hear about frozen sewage filled pipes bursting and leaking through ceilings and walls, people stuck in unreliable elevators as power fluctuates, food spoiling in inconsistently powered fridges, and long walks up dark stairways with bottles of water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning.  Through all the issues, Timbercreek is not compensating people for their losses, while the ignore much-needed repair work and shamelessly continue to evict residents.

Louisa notes you can call the Timbercreek office in charge of rentals (647-951-5498) and demand fair treatment and fair compensation for existing tenants, ending eviction actions against tenants, and immediate repairs to the building.

 

Background information about the resistance in Toronto’s West Lodge towers:

 

Timbercreek has a history of similar behaviour through Canada and around the world. Check out this in-depth article “The battle for Heron Gate”, which looks into Timbercreek and their assault on the Heron Gate neighbourhood and community in Ottawa.

AW@L Radio – 2019-03-01 – Pop-Up Overdose Prevention In KW

Focusing on the ongoing war on drugs and the resultant public health emergency, this episode opens with the trailer for the new podcast “Crackdown” which features “Drug user activists covering the drug war as war correspondents”, and continues with an interview with organisers of a “Pop-Up Overdose Prevention Site” in Kitchener-Waterloo.

Listen here: AW@L Radio – 2019-03-01 – Pop-Up Overdose Prevention In KW

Focusing on the ongoing war on drugs and the resultant public health emergency, this episode opens with the trailer for the new podcast “Crackdown” from Vancouver based host and producer Garth Mullins which features “Drug user activists covering the drug war as war correspondents”. This monthly podcast is “about drugs, drug policy and the drug war led by drug user activists and supported by research”.

Shifting from the west coast to Waterloo region, the show continues with an interview with Kyle Wall and Julian Ichim, 2 organisers of a pop-up overdose prevention site campaign in Kitchener-Waterloo. This new campaign is has two main goals. The first is to prevent deaths of drug users by creating a place where they may more safely consume drugs. Many of the deaths triggered by fentanyl and other opioids would be avoided if the drugs were taken in a setting where someone else was present to administer naloxone and emergency breathing if needed. The second goal is to put pressure on the government in the Region Waterloo to take action to open the much needed supervised injection and consumption sites that have faced long delays in their approval and funding.

Background:

On February 28th 2019 at 5pm, members of the “Alan Ryan People’s Community Defense Brigade” organised a gathering in downtown Kitchener and marched to the Region of Waterloo headquarters to set up the first pop-up overdose prevention site in a new campaign to prevent deaths of people who use drugs, and to put pressure on the regional council who have been dragging their feet on establishing much-needed supervised consumption and injection sites.

At least 10 people died in the region in January alone from opioid overdoses, with February death toll similarly high, with at least 2 additional deaths in the final days of the month.

The group set up a tent and stocked it with necessary supplies, like clean needles, water, blankets, disposal bins, and most importantly, naloxone kits, which when administered to someone experiencing opioid induced respiratory depression, can help stabilise their breathing.  After several hours, the group packed up for the eve, announcing that they will be setting up this operation daily in different spots around the downtown until official supervised sites are established.

Today we are joined by organisers Julian Ichim and Kyle Wall To talk about the grassroots overdose prevention site campaign and the larger public health emergency brought forward by the manufactured opioid crisis.

The show closes with the song “Mutiny in Heaven” by The Birthday Party.

#FridaysforFuture School Strike for Climate

On February 1, 2019, young people will sit out of classes across Waterloo Region and again take to the streets to demand that our leaders face responsibility for our warming planet. The Fridays for Future School Strike for Climate will take place at Waterloo City Hall from 12:30pm to 1:30pm on Friday, 1 February 2019, and on the first Friday of every month. Supporters of all ages welcome.

 

Organizing behind Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, climate strikers will ask cities and councils across Waterloo Region, as well as the federal and provincial governments, to declare a climate emergency.

 

Thunberg blasts our collective inaction on climate change: “Some people say that we are not doing enough to fight climate change. But that is not true. Because to ‘not do enough’ you have to do something. And the truth is we are basically not doing anything.”

 

Greta’s not alone. Another youth activist, Jamie Margolin of Zero Hour, has begun her own campaign to rouse global leaders into concrete measures to stabilize our shared climate. Recently, Margolin compared climate change to “a time bomb about to go off and everyone [is] ignoring it.”

 

We know that our futures will be disrupted by climate, and feel that we have no voice. So we are making ourselves visible across the world. Thirty-five thousand students in Brussels went on strike from school this past week alone, joining school strikers across Europe and heatwave-stricken Australia.

 

Like our peers across the world, students in Waterloo Region are frightened of an uncertain future dramatically altered by climate impacts and planetary instability. We don’t see the point in attending school for an education for a future that has been neglected by Canada’s government and by decision-makers world-wide.

 

We strike because we are ignored. We strike because our elders are sacrificing us for short-term profits. We see, as Greta does, that our leaders “need to put their economic goals aside to safeguard the living conditions of humankind in the future.”

 

Given that the world has until 2030 to cut emissions in half in order to secure a safe climate future, cities across the UK have declared climate emergencies, intending to fully decarbonize their economies. Canada’s precedent for declaring a climate emergency has just recently been set by Vancouver, and Christine Boyle, Vancouver city councillor, told journalists: “I was really inspired to see the students…that they are acting similarly to students around the globe to get older elected leaders in office to listen to them.”

 

If our leaders truly listened to the science on climate change, as we young people do, they would not build further fossil fuel infrastructure, would end all fossil fuel and animal agriculture subsidies, and invest heavily in a zero-carbon energy future.

 

We need our elected officials and other citizens to speak out with us for our futures. Today. We need all levels of government to declare a state of climate emergency, and we need every decision they make to be made as if our future depends on it. Because it does.
