‘Zola describes the screen of realistic art as a simple glass pane…. The Impressionist image [however] cannot be pinned down to a specific “pane”. As a whole, the great wealth of facets … instead recalls a kaleidoscope.’ Monet And The Birth Of Impressionism, p31. Shown is La Grenouillère by Monet.

green-partyCraig Cantin of the Green Party writes: ‘Dear Peter, You spoke out about the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline and your message was clear: You don’t want oil tankers ruining our beautiful coast. You don’t want to disregard the rights of First Nations and their lands. You don’t want Canada to bow to the demands of the oil lobby and build another pipeline.’

blackfridayKirsten of Greenpeace writes, ‘Black Friday is not a term of endearment. It was coined to describe the day when so many people went out to shop that it caused traffic accidents and sometimes even violence. Today it has come to symbolise excess. Black Friday is a truly terrible day for the environment…. We, as consumers, have a powerful voice. This year on Black Friday, let’s buy nothing!’

Sheets of plastic let the sun shine in while protecting tender shoots from snow, wind and temperature dips. Photo by Joseph De Sciose‘Halifax gardener Niki Jabbour checks on her mini hoop tunnel that lets her grow veggies all winter long. Sheets of plastic let the sunshine in while protecting tender shoots from snow, wind, and temperature dips. Off-season gardening is “ridiculously easy”, Jabbour says. “There are so many different crops you can grow. I just think people don’t know they can do it because they think it’s too cold. But it’s not the cold–it’s the amount of light we receive.” ‘ (Photo by Joseph De Sciose).
