'The choices we make now about how to recover from this pandemic will shape not only our health and economic future, but also the future of human life on this planet.' So says Canadian Labour Congress president Hassan Yussuff. A new alliance of nearly 200 groups in Canada are building a movement for a Just Recovery for All that will put our planet and its people first (corporations are not people in Canada). Global warming, the imminent threat of nuclear war, and the ravenous Covid-19 have brought the earth and all of its inhabitants hurtling rapidly toward a precipice beyond which there is no return. I am thrilled to read about the brave efforts of our Canadian neighbors to build an expansive and perhaps even universal movement to stop this runaway train before it carries us over the edge. In light of their passion, their diligence, and their commitment I believe some readers might want to join them and lend support to this vital effort.
