Taylor Report: GM Returns to Oshawa — But Offers Only 2nd-Tier Jobs, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
Phil interviews Tony Leah, chair of the Political Action Committee of UNIFOR local 222 at Oshawa, who recently authored an article with Rebecca Keetch, entitled "General Motors Returns to Oshawa—But Offers Only Second-Tier Jobs in a ‘Pop-Up’ Plant." Leah maintains, while it's helpful that GM is going to reopen production of pickup trucks in Oshawa, the conditions under which UNIFOR has allowed the plant to reopen leaves workers with a tiered wage system, contracted-out work, and an uncertain future. Leah was a prime mover in Green Jobs Oshawa, which pointed out that corporations have only the bottom-line in mind, and couldn't give a care about the best interests of its workers, the local community, or the environment. Green Jobs Oshawa is continuing to organize for a longer-term vision of public ownership, production for social needs, and a transition to a sustainable future, rather than dependence on the whims of corporations.

Sea Change Radio: Remembering "Watershed" Filmmaker James Redford, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
Six weeks ago, filmmaker James Redford passed away from cancer at the age of 58. He came on Sea Change Radio as a guest in 2012 to discuss his documentary film Watershed which provides the story of the Colorado River through the voices of its beneficiaries, from a fly fisherman to a rancher to a Navajo council member. The film is narrated by Jamie's father, actor Robert Redford, and this week on Sea Change Radio we remember James Redford, by revisiting our 2012 discussion. Jamie explains some of the water issues related to the Colorado River (many of which persist today) and how these lessons can help inform conservation efforts around the globe.

Taylor Report: Commentary on Meng Campaign; Iran Scientist, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
Phil introduces the program by mentioning an important event coming up Tuesday, the "Dec. 1 Day of Action to Free Meng Wanzhou." We need to restore our Trump-damaged relations with China. You can learn about the event here: http://hamiltoncoalitiontostopthewar.ca/2020/11/30/how-to-be-heard-on-dec-1/ Phil evaluates Niki Ashton's statement of support for the recent panel on Nov. 24. She called out Sinophobia - racism against Asian-Canadians. She stressed that Canada should be peaceful: Any country, properly-led, would recoil against "pivoting towards China" and sending warships into the South-China-Sea. Like Niki, we must say "no" to a New Cold War. At 7:45, Phil comments on the assassination of the Iranian scientist. The U.S. sending of warships into the area is a deliberate escalation and provocation.

Taylor Report: Paul Rusesabagina was illegally transferred to Rwanda, Segment 1

1 month 2 weeks ago
Phil interviews international lawyer John Philpot about the case of Paul Rusesabagina, who was illegally transferred from Dubai to Rwanda. Rusesabagina is a Belgian citizen with a US Green Card. Canada is ducking its responsibility by merely asking that Rusesabagina receive a "fair trial." The main issue, according to Philpot, is that Paul Rusesabagina was kidnapped from the UAE to Rwanda. Proper procedures, such as extradition, must be observed. And it is unlikely that Paul Kagame's dictatorial government would succeed in an extradition request in any court in the world. Of immediate concern is Paul's health, which is compromised by high blood pressure and recovery from cancer treatments.
