What's New: Capitalist Production vs. The Earth
by Umair Muhammad | November 26, 2015
In a short story titled “Sally,” science fiction writer Isaac Asimov describes a world in which cars are endowed with artificial intelligence. The mass adoption of “automatobiles,” as they are called in the story, makes travelling easy: “You got in, punched your destination and let it go its own way.” What is more, the intelligent cars helped bring an end to the tens of thousands of road fatalities that were caused by human error each year. But all is not well in this world of intelligent cars.
What's New: TTC votes to increase cash fare, cost of tokens
| November 25, 2015
The Toronto Transit Commission voted on Monday to increase cash fares and the price of subway tokens to help fill a $58-million deficit heading into 2016. The cash fare will jump by 25 cents to $3.25 and the cost of tokens and tickets will go up by 10 cents to $2.90. The price of the monthly Metropass will remain frozen at $141.50.

At first glance it seems an almost inexplicable paradox: probably the most right wing British government since 1945 inviting, against the advice of the security services, the military and the U.S. Government, companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party -- and in one case the Chinese military -- into the heart of our strategically vital energy infrastructure.
What's New: Keep transit public in the age of Justin Trudeau
by Vincent Puhakka | November 24, 2015
Although the dust has only just settled on the longest election campaign in recent Canadian history; it's time we took stock of our Prime Minister-elect and his plans for public transit. On the surface, things look good: the Liberal Party's signature promise to run three years of deficits to fund infrastructure investment stands in stark contrast to the previous government’s record of piecemeal, project by project spending.

An Ontario-wide coalition of more than 90 labour and community groups concerned with growing inequality released an alarming report today that delivers a grim warning about the erosion of income transfer programs, social programs and a labour force that is leaving millions behind. “Ontario is dead last in funding for social programs and, by nearly every measure, it is trailing every other province in income equality and poverty reduction,” said report author, Natalie Mehra.

In the wake of the murderous attacks in Paris, we can expect western heads of state to do what they always do in such circumstances: declare total and unremitting war on those who brought it about. They don’t actually mean it. They’ve had the means to uproot and destroy Islamic State within their hands for over a year now. They've simply refused to make use of it.
Bullet #1188: The Realism of Audacity
by Panagiotis Sotiris | November 23, 2015
In a certain way, I feel a certain unease since the entire Greek Left has some form of responsibility for the fact that Greece is not currently a laboratory of hope; rather it is a reason for despair. What I am going to say should be taken as a form of self-criticism rather than a declaration. I consider myself part of the problem... The problem is that in the country where the most aggressive experiment in neoliberal social engineering was met with the most massive, almost insurrectionary sequence of struggles.

|: Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice 2015|
As part of a global call for actions on climate justice, the Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice 2015 will bring together activists, organizations, people from all walks of life for an open forum to discuss community-based responses to the climate crisis. This event is also a direct response to the 2015 United Nations Conference of the Parties talks on the climate in Paris (November 30th to December 11th), and seeks to find alternatives outside of government and industry initiatives, which have served the interests of the rich, rather than people today or our collective future.
Several People’s Assemblies on the Climate were held in Toronto between 2010 and 2012. This 2015 gathering seeks to re-catalyze, revitalize, and revision strength for our collective fight for climate justice.
