first_imgEditor’s Note: The Discourse, APTN News and HuffPost Canada launch #TrackingTransMountain, a database that digs into what’s really happening with Indigenous consultation for the controversial project.Trevor Jang, Lauren Kaljur, Emma Paling, Lucy Scholey, Amber Bernard, Brenna Owen, Kendra Perrin, Caitlin Havlak and Jon von OfenheimIf Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project proceeds, the land, resources, and rights of more than 130 Indigenous communities and groups from Alberta’s oilsands to British Columbia’s coast could be affected.Because of this, the Canadian government and Kinder Morgan have a legal obligation to meaningfully consult with them.The pipeline company points to the 43 communities that have signed some form of agreement to show Indigenous support for the project.But anti-pipeline activists say there hasn’t been meaningful consultation. At the same time, six First Nations are arguing consultation was inadequate in court and a single judge ruling in their favour could put the project back to square one.So, what’s the truth?Reporters across Canada are documenting a range of Indigenous voices that express support, concern and everything in between. These stories sometimes conflict, adding noise to a confusing but important part of the Trans Mountain story and leaving room for industry, anti-pipeline activists, and others to make competing claims to support their position.#TrackingTransMountain aims to present a more clear picture of the state of consultation across all of the communities affected. Building from the hundreds of pages of official documents, existing reporting and interviews with leaders and community members themselves, The Discourse, Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) and HuffPost Canada hope to offer information to help inform discussions about what’s happening.In a single interactive place, you can explore each Indigenous community along the pipeline and water tanker route to uncover details that you may have had trouble tracking down before.We’re contacting every Indigenous community identified in Kinder Morgan’s most recent report on Indigenous engagement to the National Energy Board.The database aims to include as many perspectives as possible, but not every community has gotten back to us yet.In the meantime, we’re filling it in with official documents from the consultation process. We know there are still holes to fill and perspectives missing. If you have information that you want to add, fill in this survey. We’ll continue to add information and report on it as it comes in.What’s next?Texas-based Kinder Morgan has given the Canadian government until May 31 to bring certainty to the $7.4-billion project, but the question of Indigenous jurisdiction and consultation is not going anywhere.Neither are future decisions affecting the rights of hundreds of Indigenous communities. No single story can fully capture what’s really at stake. But we believe reporters can improve coverage of these complex issues by collaborating with each other and the public.Follow #TrackingTransMountain on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates and stories from our collaborative reporting efforts.This story was produced as part of #TrackingTransMountain, a collaborative reporting project from The Discourse, APTN News, and HuffPost Canada that aims to deepen the reporting on Indigenous communities affected by Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project.last_img read more

first_imgFuture of indoor sky diving center up-in-the-air Supposed to be a one-stop-shop for homeless September 18, 2018 Dan Plante Updated: 6:22 PM Categories: Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwittercenter_img 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsIt was supposed to be the next big thing in the East Village. An indoor sky diving center with fancy wind tunnels. Before long, the concept took a dive. The place never really caught and went out of business.That’s when the City of San Diego stepped-in, and laid down $7-million dollars to take it over. The concept was well intended and clearly needed. They wanted a one stop shop for homeless services. The execution leaves a lot to be desired. “I thought this was supposed to be helping us out here. They keep promising a place to get help, I haven’t seen it”, says Roderick Bradely, formerly homeless.After a nice summer break under their belts, city leaders are back at city hall and still dealing with the issues of the homeless. They approved a deal to spend $8.5-million to keep three homeless tents open. But they delayed a vote on the *indoor sky diving* center.Insiders at city hall say there is more work to be done before taking the plunge. “If it’s not working, we could look at expanding to other parts of town. But we own the building and we’re going to try, If not, we could always sell it”, says Council Member Scott Sherman. While $7-million sounds like a lot of money, and it is, at this stage the building is worth more than that. Some say it’s worth at least $10-million. At the very least, San Diego taxpayers should not lose money on it. Posted: September 18, 2018 Dan Plante, last_img read more
