The same week one of B.C.’s proposed LNG projects was delayed, Canada’s energy minister mused about the risk of fossil fuel investments as the clean energy transition picks up speed.

The final investment decision for the Cedar LNG project, backed by the Pembina Pipeline Corp. and the Haisla First Nation, will be postponed until mid-2024, it was announced last week.

Members of the BC Teachers Federation (BCTF) protested in Vancouver on Wednesday, calling for a “fossil-free and weapons-free portfolio.”

The rally, organized by BCTF Divest Now and Van Climate Strike Coalition, was held outside of the BCTF’s offices in an effort to get the attention of the federation’s President Clint Johnston, says Jillian Maguire, co-founder of BCTF Divest Now.

British Columbians deserve to be able to get to where they need to go quickly, conveniently and affordably, no matter where in the province they live. And meeting our climate goals demands modern, sustainable zero-carbon transit—with great service that can offer a compelling alternative to personal cars.

But after years of neglect and privatization, today’s transit system is plagued with overcrowding, delays and big gaps in service.
