Janine relates the his­to­ry of how she became mobi­lized to fight for a new par­a­digm where our polit­i­cal struc­tures can respect the earth and stop its con­tin­ued exploita­tion. Janine is lead­ing the fight to get more peo­ple inter­est­ed in the envi­ron­men­tal move­ment right here in Man­i­to­ba. Janine dis­cuss­es the his­to­ry of Man­i­to­ba Hydro where the devel­op­ment of dams caused a lega­cy of mis­trust from the dam­age caused to First Nation com­mu­ni­ties. She adds, our approach to farm­ing in Man­i­to­ba is heav­i­ly depen­dent on fos­sil fuels, includ­ing the refrig­er­ant chain from our import­ed food. Her many years work­ing in organ­ic agri­cul­ture has made her aware of the sig­nif­i­cant green­house gas foot­print farm­ing has here in Man­i­to­ba and the chal­lenges ahead. Our growth-ori­ent­ed econ­o­my where more is bet­ter is lead­ing us to destruc­tion of bio­di­ver­si­ty. Let’s cre­ate bal­ance and equal­i­ty in our pro­duc­tion and imple­ment green ini­tia­tives in sec­tors of our econ­o­my. This will move us towards clos­er to bet­ter health, ecol­o­gy, and care for the planet.
