As eco-catastrophe rushes closer, BC’s May 9 election will result—whoever wins—in provincial climate policies that are eco-suicidally inadequate. Patience until the next election—federal or provincial—will not be a survival trait.

Survival partisans must enumerate policy goals that genuinely address the climate emergency and continue pushing for them after May 9.
