West Vancouver council has been criticized for voting to send letters to the world’s biggest fossil-fuel companies to hold them accountable for their “fair share” of the costs related to climate change. I want to explain why I voted in favour.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is aggressively advancing a false narrative about heavy oil’s deep discount. She presents the problem in two parts, neither of which stand up to scrutiny.

First, Notley purports that the abnormally wide price spread affects every barrel of heavy oil leading to millions of dollars a day in losses to the Canadian economy. And second, that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is crucial. Neither of these claims are supported by the facts.

When Burnaby assistant fire chief Barry Mawhinney headed out to Burnaby Mountain on a 911 call Saturday night, he looked up and realized it was going to be a stubborn one.

He could see flames shooting into the air.​

“You could see this when I left the station,” Mawhinney said around 10 p.m. Saturday night after a team of 34 firefighters had managed to finally put out the fire at an unoccupied workshop.

[Supreme Court of BC Justice Affleck rejected the very compelling 'defence of necessity' raised by climate defenders arrested at the TransMountain Pipelines terminal in Burnaby, BC. The trial will begin on March 11, and an appeal of this ruling seems likely.]
