MSSC Comments on Orca Study

The latest study on Orca populations in British Columbia has revealed alarming findings – these majestic creatures are absorbing toxins from wildfires and oil spills, impacting their health and survival. The research, published in Scientific Reports, found high levels of toxic PAHs in muscle and liver samples of Bigg’s and southern resident Orca’s. Lead investigator Juan José Alava warns that Orca’s are serving as an early warning system for the harmful effects of pollution on marine life, emphasizing the urgent need for environmental action. This groundbreaking study sheds light on the devastating impact of human activities on these iconic marine animals and the delicate balance of our oceans.

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, March 21, recognizes past and present injustices and prejudices founded in racial discrimination, including the ongoing social and economic repercussions for Canada’s Indigenous peoples. The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee (SESC) is committed to surfacing issues related to racial discrimination, including as this links to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, in the context of resource development activities. We show up for this work daily through direct engagement with Indigenous communities, research focused on Indigenous Peoples experience with the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, and our ongoing support to Indigenous communities building strengths in the area of socioeconomic monitoring. https://www.mmiwg-ffada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Executive_Summary.pdf

International Women's Day, observed on March 8, honours women's societal, economic, cultural, and political contributions worldwide. It's also a day to highlight the pursuit of gender equality. The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee (SESC) celebrates the important influence and impact that Indigenous women continue to have in upholding their families and cultures, and recognizes the profound contributions of all female Indigenous leaders, including our own IAMC-TMX Indigenous Caucus Members. Pictured are some of the women involved in the formation of the IAMC-TMX: Noreen Saddleback, Tracy Friedel, Laura Sparrow, and Carleen Thomas. #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion #EnvironmentalProtection #IndigenousCollaboration #ClimateAction #IndigenousWisdom #SustainableFuture
