A former union executive and Saskatoon Co-op worker is leading the charge to have the Co-op’s board of directors removed.

Craig Thebaud, head of the Facebook page “Saskatoon Co-op Members for the Fair Treatment of Employees,” is circulating a petition among members to force a membership meeting and vote on a motion to remove the nine members of the Saskatoon Co-op board.

The tools and strategies of critical pedagogy and popular education models speak to me as a kind of community-envisioned and enacted social innovation and one which I believe can be employed to move forward developments within what is being called the solidarity economy, particularly as it plays out in the local food system here in New Orleans.
