  • Congratulations to Reproductive Justice New Brunswick for meeting your fundraising goal!  Hopefully this means that the Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton — New Brunswick’s only public reproductive health clinic — will remain open for a while longer.  Until New Brunswick gets its shit together, anti-choice legislation will continue to make it difficult, embarrassing, and prohibitively expensive for women to receive abortions in New Brunswick. SHAME.
  • Several B.C. First Nations, including the Tsilhqot’in, Haida Nation, Gitxaala, and Kwikwetlem launched at least nine court challenges to try to block Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline. They will argue the proposed pipeline and its recent approval by the federal government is a constitutional violation of their aboriginal land rights in their respective territories, particularly in light of the Supreme Court of Canada victory last month by the Tsilhqot’in First Nation.
  • Also, that guy who coined the term ‘manic pixie dream girl’ spells out his feminist critique in Salon.
