Marching again for fossil fuel divestment at U of T

Tomorrow, and are holding our second march in support of fossil fuel divestment. The one we held back in November 2014 involved about 200 people.

Right now, Toronto’s weather is pretty miserable. After today’s dentist appointment I swung by MEC to get a waterproof silicone cover to protect my backpack (better than my crude black garbage bag cover) and some ‘Darn Tough Vermont’ merino wool socks.

Hopefully, tomorrow’s evening weather will be OK and we will see a strong turnout. The march is timed to coincide with a meeting of the Governing Council, who will hopefully be walking out of Simcoe Hall at the same time as we have people giving speeches there.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. I hope that many people will come to the march and that the energy will be great.

  2. The ad hoc committee recently asked us to answer some additional questions about fiduciary duty, fossil fuel extraction and social injury, and the precedent divestment would set.

    I just sent our response.

  3. It was good to read your letter and it is excellently argued. I recently attended a talk about “The Age of Sustainable Development” by Jeffrey Sachs and it brought home that we must reduce the world population and most importantly protect the environment as there is no hope otherwise. Thank you for dong the work that you do.
