Indigenous guardian program brings hope, sovereignty to Manitoba’s last undammed river: Thanks to the persistence of five Indigenous communities, Indigenous youth will be able to realize dreams of becoming river guides and stewards of their territory as they protect the 50,000-square-kilometre watershed, home to about two dozen at-risk species, from the impacts of climate change. The land itself stores almost two billion tonnes of carbon — equivalent to eight years worth of Canada’s emissions — in its tundra, forests and wetlands.

The Fed’s Thanksgiving Turkey: Misleading reports on the rising cost of dinner are feeding the Fed’s appetite for more perverse rate hikes. The American Farm Bureau Federation is out with a report supposedly showing how much more U.S. families will pay for their Thanksgiving dinner this year. The headline number is scary, 20 percent more than last year—enough to make the Federal Reserve keep tightening the money screws.

Congress to officially protect same-sex marriage. Here’s what the bill does and doesn’t do: The bill would act as a fail-safe should the Supreme Court’s right-wing majority do to marriage equality what they did to abortion rights.
