The series will explore how?public libraries are developing programming?to?further the Truth and Reconciliation Commission principles. The series will also look at how some libraries are actually growing food and developing seed lending libraries.</p> <p>¡°I was thinking about journalism and the public good, and how journalism can have an impact on people,¡± Robinson said, explaining why she applied for the fellowship.</p> <p>She is excited to be given the opportunity to expand on a topic she is very passionate about.</p> <p>In addition to completing her graduate degree in journalism at Carleton, Robinson holds a bachelor¡¯s degree in English from Queen¡¯s University and a master¡¯s in Writing for Children from the University of Winchester in the United Kingdom. Originally from Aurora, Ont., she plans to pursue a career in journalism with an emphasis on local news.</p> <p>Named after the late former leader of the federal New Democratic Party who inspired people by example, the fellowship was created two years ago, in partnership with the <a href="https://www.changeleaders.ca/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Institute for Change Leaders</a>. It was named in Layton¡¯s honour, as he demonstrated that working together for social and economic justice is possible and achievable. It is a unique opportunity to strengthen media democracy in Canada, while offering mentorship and growth for new voices.</p> <p>Look for Robinson¡¯s series in the coming months.</p> <p><em>If you like what you read from our Jack Layton Fellowship, please consider supporting the initiative in the future, either as an individual or organization.

They can be forgiven for this. The company that owns a near monopoly on newspapers in Canada, aided by politicians and fossil fuel interests, has put significant effort into convincing them.</p> <p>That the number rises to 87 per cent in Alberta, with 96 per cent believing that not building new pipelines would have a major impact on the Canadian economy, isn't surprising. All mainstream newspapers there are owned by the same company, political parties across the spectrum prioritize oil and gas interests over everything, and even?<a href="http://www.rabble.ca/blogs/bloggers/alberta-diary/2019/01/university-calgary-influenced-big-oil-2015-controversy-academic" target="_blank">educational institutions like the University of Calgary</a>?have been compromised by industry influence.</p> <p>When the?<em>National Post</em>?signed a 2013 agreement with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers,?<a href="https://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2017/11/14/mair-media-unholiest-alliances/" target="_blank">its publisher, Douglas Kelly, said</a>, "We will work with CAPP to amplify our energy mandate and to be a part of the solution to keep Canada competitive in the global marketplace.

That agreement and similar language later?<a href="https://www.nationalobserver.com/2015/11/24/news/tawdry-fall-postmedia-newspaper-empire" target="_blank">extended to its parent company, Postmedia</a>, which owns most major daily newspapers in Canada, as well as many community papers.</p> <p>The?<em>National Post</em>'s opinion pages are full of climate-science denial, with few opposing viewpoints.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley claims Canada is losing $80 million a day because of a "price discount" on Canadian bitumen that could be overcome with a pipeline to ship more to markets beyond the U.S. Her figure is double the estimate in a Scotiabank report that itself was found to be flawed.</p> <p>There is no real "discount" on Canadian product, nor are there countries outside the U.S. clamouring for our bitumen. The lower price is because it's costly to extract and process and must be diluted before being shipped by pipeline. As?<a href="https://www.nationalobserver.com/2018/12/26/opinion/discount-frenzy-dirt-discount-oil" target="_blank">Will Horter writes in the?<em>National Observer</em></a>, new international marine shipping fuel standards limiting high-sulphur heavy crude "will shrink Alberta's share of marine fuel market and add an additional two to three dollars a barrel in refining costs to remove the sulphur."</p> <p>Beyond that, the economic and societal costs from the pollution and climate impacts of rapidly digging up, shipping and consuming these fossil fuels, whether the end product is burned here or in other countries, continue to rise along with global emissions and temperatures. That's a crisis!</p> <p>An?<a href="http://www.ibc.ca/on/resources/media-centre/media-releases/severe-weather-causes-190-million-in-insured-damage-in-2018" target="_blank">Insurance Bureau of Canada report</a>?found damages to homes, businesses and vehicles from extreme weather events in 2018 cost insurers here $1.9 billion, up from $300 to $400 million in 2009. That represents just a fraction of overall costs to governments, businesses and individuals of extreme weather events, increasing health impacts, habitat damage and loss, cleanup of abandoned oil and gas wells, fluctuating global energy markets, food and water security, and even increasing?<a href="https://www.thestar.com/opinion/contributors/2018/07/29/dont-ignore-the-link-between-refugees-and-climate-change.html" target="_blank">refugee claims</a>.</p> <p>A?<a href="https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-07999-w" target="_blank">study in?<em>Nature Communications</em></a>?concluded the world could meet Paris Agreement climate targets and slow impacts by immediately phasing out fossil fuels and their infrastructure.

There's?<a href="https://greystonebooks.com/products/just-cool-it" target="_blank">no shortage of solutions</a>.

Those in media, government, industry and society who lack the insight, imagination or courage to recognize our plight and work for change are putting everyone at risk.</p> <p><em>Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation Senior Editor Ian Hanington.</em></p> <p><em>Learn more at <a href="https://davidsuzuki.org/" target="_blank">www.davidsuzuki.org</a></em></p> <p><em>Image: <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/nikoskoutoulasphotography/5122495979/in/photolist-brNRnd-bp7mFC-4DZov3-8NE8Ac-bnhEcd-bnhFnj-bmg9Xv-bmfmjQ-bmNmLv-brNUJQ-bp7kvE-bmNm3M-bC2dvP-bpe7Bg-bmgeCM-bC2fcV-bveYnZ-brNWC3-bmNnun-bC29fr-bpe4Fg-bEHNep-bpee3a-bp7nRQ-9tPLSJ-bEHDFr-bsM4yK-bnhD73-bmfnBh-bp7jps-MXsrt1-bveS7D-AEJUs-bC2c18-VWenrM-2e34qyq-pe4yeB-3HGWz-6pSjdF-jczYL-5fkJXp-vaQKS2-b5yjev-uTgm7G-28Kj4-6duEkm-7pUNUM-63H9A8-9UHdtF-amBxsv" target="_blank">Nikos Koutoulas</a>/Flickr</em></p> <p><em>Help make rabble sustainable.

"The deciding factor in future warfare will be narrative -- whose story wins."</p> <p>In advance of four provincial elections and one federal election coming up in 2019, Canada's director of general military strategic communications is warning that Canadians should be alert for attempts to influence the electorate, especially <a href="https://youtu.be/KLs_zPDs8wo" target="_blank">disinformation campaigns on digital and electronic media</a>. He urged Canadians to pay close attention to their news sources, to learn to identify fake news, and to support professional, credible, dedicated journalists.? ?</p> <p>There was a time, he said, when newspapers would print columns from both sides of an issue, side by side, so people could compare them. That was back when people trusted the legacy media. Back then, in the first armed conflict ever telecast live, CNN sent 15 people and tons of equipment to cover the 1990 Gulf War -- the U.S. attack on Saddam Hussein and Iraq over his attack on Kuwait.</p> <p>"These days," said Janzen, "everybody is a broadcaster. My 11-year-old daughter can capture the same information with her smartphone camera, and use the web to transmit the video. Maybe CNN will pick it up." While citizen videos can help monitor authorities -- say, police at a demonstration -- the medium also lends itself to propaganda videos. The upshot is that disruption through spreading falsehoods online has become Russia's new soft war strategy.</p> <p><em>Politico </em>reported in late 2017 that General Valery Gerasimov, Russia's chief of the General Staff, published a paper in 2013 arguing that? "<a href="https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/09/05/gerasimov-doctrine-russia-foreign-policy-215538" target="_blank">The very 'rules of war' have changed.</a> <em>The role of nonmilitary means</em>?<em> of achieving political and strategic goals has grown</em>, [emphasis added] and, in many cases, they have exceeded the power of force of weapons in their effectiveness. ¡­."??</p> <p><em>Politico</em> proposes that:</p> <blockquote> <p>"Thanks to the internet and social media, the kinds of operations Soviet psy-ops teams once could only fantasize about -- upending the domestic affairs of nations with information alone -- are now plausible. The Gerasimov Doctrine builds a framework for these new tools, and declares that non-military tactics are not auxiliary to the use of force but the preferred way to win. That they are, in fact, the actual war.</p> <p>"Chaos is the strategy the Kremlin pursues: Gerasimov specifies that the objective is to achieve an environment of permanent unrest and conflict within an enemy state...."</p> </blockquote> <p>Jay Jansen offered several examples of this chaos theory, such as Twitter star Jenna Abrams. Starting about a year before the U.S. election, Twitter started carrying smart, humorous, divisive?messages from "Jenna Abrams," only a few of which were political.?She amassed 70,000 followers before <a href="https://www.thedailybeast.com/jenna-abrams-russias-clown-troll-princess-duped-the-mainstream-media-and-the-world" target="_blank">she was exposed as a complete fabrication</a>, an avatar front for Russian trolls. <em>The Daily Beast</em> noted that she was also "featured in articles written by <em>Bustle, U.S. News and World Report, USA Today</em>, several local Fox affiliates, InfoWars, BET, Yahoo Sports, Sky News, IJR, Breitbart, <em>The Washington Post</em>" and a dozen other reputable publications.</p> <p>Of course, <em>Russia Today TV</em> and <em>Sputnik News</em> also featured Jenna Abrams. The most popular news channel on YouTube, said Janzen, is RT, Russian Television. "RT became the first news channel to gain a billion views on YouTube," he said. "They're successful because they are paying hard cash. They're paying YouTube to run it, and paying for ratings. Every cable network in the U.S. and Canada gets RT for free. Probably 85 per cent of RT news is similar to ours. The other 15 per cent is fake news."</p> <p>Russians weaponized disinformation mainly for both defensive and offensive reasons, he said. First, NATO expanded widely during the 1990s, to 29 members, and made overtures to Georgia and Ukraine about joining, although Russia was still excluded.</p> <p>Russia responded by invading Georgia and annexing the Crimea portion of Ukraine. The resulting UN sanctions have left Russia's economy hurting badly, and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnitsky_Act" target="_blank">the Magnitsky Act</a> threatens Putin's wealth and ability to travel outside Russia. Putin wants to find ways to ease the global economic pressure without relinquishing any territory.?</p> <p>Second, Russia knows NATO has it outgunned.</p> <p>"Our adversaries won't be able to compete with us with weapons until 2050," said Janzen. "With NATO, we have a huge advantage in weapons. We have the overmatch. Russia won't try to challenge NATO directly." However, another way Russia can advance its own global standing is to undermine its adversaries and, therefore, our values and standards of governance.?</p> <p>"Instead, they choose the information environment, where<em> they</em> have the overmatch. No one will challenge the Kremlin on their stories even if they make them up. Also, as authoritarian regimes, they're thinking long term -- 10 to 20 years in advance -- where our elected figures tend to think as far as the next election." That is why, if we want to protect Canadian values, 'We need to figure out our own strategy before the crisis hits, because it will hit."</p> <p>On the other hand, said International Relations Professor Kari Roberts, responding to the General's presentation, "We need to learn the lessons of the first Cold War. <a href="http://www.mtroyal.ca/ProgramsCourses/FacultiesSchoolsCentres/Arts/Departments/EconomicsJusticePolicyStudies/Faculty/dep_pstud_faculty_kroberts.htm" target="_blank">Russia, when treated as an enemy, became one.</a> In our darkest days full of fear, when Russia was isolated, the arms race escalated." ?</p> <p>Russia wants to regain its role as a world power, she said, and seizing territory is part of that. In the face of sanctions, "Political/information warfare may be the new normal," she said. "There hasn't been a meaningful coordinated response to the attacks, so Russia feels successful. This is an informal, undeclared form of warfare, blurring the line between war and peace, that leaves them with plausible deniability."</p> <p>Although Russia's divisive tactics exploit economic fault lines and social cleavages in Western societies, Russia did not create those weaknesses. "Nor is Russia putting ideas into play that were not already present," she said. "Our adversary challenges West's dominance of global affairs by undermining its 'divine right' to do so. And with Donald Trump's election, they have more ammunition. They are just asking the rest of the world, is this the country we should follow?"</p> <p>Portraying Vladimir Putin as a super villain is a mistake, she said. It actually helps strengthen his position domestically.?Contrariwise, during the Cold War, "When we started to see our adversary as motivated by interest and not by evil, we started negotiating arms treaties. Despite Donald Trump," she laughed, "I think we need to continue to engage and negotiate with Russia, not isolate them." ?</p> <p>In response, Janzen said that he agreed with 99 per cent of her talk. Later, he cautioned an audience member not to assume an adversarial position with Russia. "Russia has a right to its policies," he said, "and so do the other countries in NATO.? We have to ask -- does Russia have the right to invade Crimea and Ukraine? To seize terrain, for the first time since the Second World War, by force?"? He shook his head.</p> <p>"We can't let them destroy the rules we've set up. At the same time, NATO's rhetoric on Russia never names Russians in general. Always, in the Canadian Forces, we keep in mind that we have a partnership with Russia. We value Russia. We take exception to what they've done, but we want to work together with them again."</p> <p>In the meantime, he warned again, "I believe this kind of cyberwarfare is going to be part of our reality from now on. We need to be prepared. It's just a matter of time before we get a serious attack."?</p> <p><em>Award-winning author and journalist Penney Kome has published six non-fiction books and hundreds of periodical articles, as well as writing a national column for 12 years and a local (Calgary) column for four years.

McCartney start to sink in on this side of the Rocky Mountains at the University of Calgary.</p> <p>The conclusions of Gray and McCartney are also unlikely to be popular with corporate media, in particular Postmedia's <em>Calgary Herald</em>.</p> <p>Their paper -- <a href="https://albertapolitics.ca/wp-content/uploads/BigOilPaper.pdf" target="_blank"><em>Big Oil U: Canadian Media Coverage of Corporate Obstructionism and Institutional Corruption at the University of Calgary</em></a>, hot off the presses at <a href="https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/cjs/index.php/cjs/" target="_blank">the <em>Canadian Journal of Sociology</em></a> -- certainly doesn't mince words, as the title alone suggests.</p> <p>The backstory, extensively <a href="https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/university-calgary-enbridge-sponsorship-1.3286369">covered by the CBC in 2015</a>, involved a modest $2.25-million endowment by Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. to be paid over a decade to what was then called "the Enbridge Centre for Corporate Sustainability" within the U of C's business school.</p> <p>When Enbridge, the company that then wanted to build the controversial Northern Gateway Pipeline, was accused of trying to use the university "as a PR machine for themselves," as one unhappy U of C academic put it at the time, and senior university administrators appeared to go along with the corporation, claims academic freedom was being undermined and the mission of the university subverted soon went public.</p> <p>The CBC journalists' expos¨¦ was based in significant part on freedom of information searches that pried revealing U of C correspondence from the hands of reluctant university administrators. As was said in this space at the time, the contents of the correspondence that the network's investigative reporters uncovered showed <a href="https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/enbridge-oil-university-calgary-spill-central-michigan-1.3291288">administrators willing to uncritically accept</a> almost any corporate instruction, regardless how questionable it seemed from the perspective of maintaining the university's independence.</p> <p>Taking their cue from those 2015 CBC stories, McCartney and Gray reached conclusions about corporate, university and media activities unlikely to surprise anyone who has paid attention to news coverage of the Canadian fossil fuel industry in the context of growing public concern about climate change.</p> <p>The authors' analysis of 70 news stories from various Canadian news sources published in the aftermath of the CBC's initial reports argues there was a parallel effort by the Calgary-based energy company and the Calgary university to frame the central issues of corporate obstructionism in public post-secondary institutions and what they term "institutional corruption" as if they were part of the university's mandate and purpose.</p> <p>Moreover, they argue, there was a "stark contrast" between the way corporate and non-corporate media covered the controversy -- with the CBC and non-commercial media emphasizing the debate about academic freedom and the proper role of public institutions while corporate media "sought to defend the integrity of the relationship between the university and Enbridge during the investigative process."</p> <p>"Corporate media sources also attempted to downgrade the seriousness" of concerns the university's president was at the same time a director of an Enbridge subsidiary, they said.</p> <p>The two B.C. researchers argue corporate news coverage of the 2015 controversy at the U of C should be seen in the context of a historical tendency to downplay the social and environmental impacts of fossil fuel development on Indigenous people, and similar history of emphasizing the impact of climate change on business interests over its long-term consequences for the environment.</p> <p>"We place this academic scandal in the context of global carbon capitalists making strident efforts to shape and manage social change efforts around energy, and equally, the deeply Canadian tension between the recognition of a climate crisis and the centrality of carbon extraction and transportation to the Canadian economy," the researchers wrote.</p> <p>"Such tension is the foundation of institutional corruption," they continued -- defining "institutional corruption" as violations of public trust embedded in the structures, norms and practices of any professional environment.</p> <p>In their conclusions, McCartney and Gray observed that "the profit motivation of corporate media, their advertising license to do business and use of official sourcing were clear when compared to how non-corporate media treated the same controversy."</p> <p>As for the university, they said, the willingness of administrators "to sell the legitimacy of the university to corporate interests" and of academics to contribute by "producing research under the guise of apolitical scientific progress" show how "normalized functions of an institution cause harm and break public trust."</p> <p>Finally, they said, the trend of corporate donations switching from a pure philanthropy model to a role that involves more day-to-day involvement in what universities decide to do shows how "fossil fuel companies are leveraging publicly funded centres of education and learning to promote a carbon-intensive future."</p> <p>This, they concluded, "is the very definition of corporate obstruction in democracy."</p> <p>We should stand by for a brisk response from the U of C, I would wager.</p> <p><em>David Climenhaga, author of the Alberta Diary blog, is a journalist, author, journalism teacher, poet and trade union communicator who has worked in senior writing and editing positions with the Toronto Globe and Mail and the Calgary Herald.
