Episode 19 - Board Protests and Divestment

February 5, 2016

The Board of Governors meetings this week provided more than enough fodder for the whole episode. We talk about more secret meetings, play some tape from the faculty-led "UBC Clean" protest of the Board, discuss UBC's decision not to divest from fossil fuels, and the return of Fire Hydrant. Our interviews this week are with Alex Hemingway of UBC C350 and Milan Ilnyckyj of Toronto 350. They walk us through the respective fossil fuel divestment campaigns they helped lead and why the idea is entirely compatible with fiduciary duty.
