The B.C. government is ready to enact a new Environmental Assessment law that could go a long way toward protecting the environment when new mines and other industrial projects are proposed.

But all of it is worthless if companies continue to dodge the Environmental Assessment process altogether – and I’m afraid that’s why I’m writing to you today.

OTTAWA -- A British Columbia think tank asked the Conservatives on Thursday to either stop running a new anti-carbon tax ad, or remove the reference in it to Clean Energy Canada's research.

Dan Woynillowicz, policy director for Clean Energy Canada, says Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's new ad misrepresents research done by the Simon Fraser University think tank.

"The information in the ad needs to be corrected, or it needs to be removed from circulation," said Woynillowicz.

Global Climate Strike - San Fransicso 2019

On 20 September [through to September 27], at the request of the young people who have been staging school strikes around the world, we’re walking out of our workplaces and homes to spend the day demanding action on the climate crisis, the greatest existential threat that all of us face. It’s a one-day climate strike, if you will – and it will not be the last. This is going to be the beginning of a week of action all over the world. And we hope to make it a turning point in history.

Election offers only partial solutions

Roll Up Your Sleeves,

For the Green New Deal

   Our federal election should let us choose a climate justice plan to remedy global climate disruption and growing economic inequality. But, at best, the major parties offer only extremely partial solutions.
