When Premier John Horgan announced that his government was proceeding with the $10.7-billion Site C dam, it created a long-standing rift with some members of his party.

Jan. 4, 2020

This morning, I reflected on how frustrating it must be for some members of the B.C. NDP as they watch their government in action.

Teachers have learned that Premier John Horgan isn't seriously committed to upsetting the status quo that was established in public education through 16 years of rule by the B.C. Liberals. 

People who think about the climate every day recognize that this NDP government is thoroughly and utterly committed to supporting the LNG carbon bomb in Kitimat that will rely on fracked natural gas.

The outcome of the early primaries may erase Joe Biden’s “electability” luster and plunge the Lords of Capital into a panic in which all bets are off on what’s left of democratic liberties.
