If this was a game of hockey, we’d be down to an overtime shootout.

A federal judge has Zambonied a narrow strip of ice for the players to skate on, and six Indigenous legal teams will get to take a shot.

It’s time for the home crowd to stand up and root for them. Please join me in making a donation to the First Nations challenging this toxic, dangerous oil tanker expansion on behalf of all of us.

Capilano University student Grace Grignon says that she was attracted to Extinction Rebellion because it's taking a "different and stronger approach" than other groups.

Last night, I was curious to learn more about Extinction Rebellion, a global climate-justice movement with chapters in British Columbia.

Founded last year, it's been the talk of the U.K. and, more recently, Australia, for its peaceful, direct actions that disrupt the establishment.

 

In many respects, the Extinction Rebellion protests are reminiscent of the U.S. civil rights movement or Mahatma Gandhi's efforts to get the British to leave India.

Despite challenges from parts of both the labor and the environmental movements, which its sponsors had undoubtedly hoped would be among its strongest supporters, Markey and Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal resolution has gone a remarkably long way toward putting a genuine discussion of what an effective and just climate policy might look like in the public arena for the first time.

This article contains some rare information and analysis about U.S. unions' positions on the Green New Deal and the climate disruption crisis in general.

The “Protest Papers” released by the BC Civil Liberties Association are just the latest chapter in a five-year battle to determine if CSIS and the oil and gas industry are illegally spying on citizens’ groups.
