ICYMI: October 1-6
What I produced and consumed this week.
At The Progress Report, Duncan Kinney and I uncovered at least $1.4 million in endowments and donations honouring Nazis at the University of Alberta’s Canadian Institute for Ukrainian Studies, as the fallout from Waffen-SS veteran Yaroslav Hunka’s parliamentary standing ovation continues.
In Alberta Native News, I wrote Wab Kinew’s historic election as the first First Nations provincial premier.
I also wrote about Indigenous climate activists’ response to an Alberta Energy Regulator report concluding Imperial Oil broke no rules when it failed to notify downstream First Nations about a tailings pond spill, and the brutal beating of a Métis Catholic school student in Cochrane.
On the Forgotten Corner, Scott and I welcomedto discuss Ukrainian diaspora organizations’ project of rehabilitating Nazi collaborators.
