With Sheila Malcolmson’s big win in Nanaimo’s by-election yesterday, the BC NDP are no doubt walking a little taller today. After all, the governing party rarely wins by-elections. The BC Liberals poured significant resources into the riding. Malcolmson was behind in the polls. The Greens ran a strong candidate. For a safe NDP riding, many in the party weren’t really sure if they could pull it off this time.

Mid-mandate, this victory extends the tenure of the NDP minority government. Some in the party are probably feeling pretty confident.

Read the RCMP report  on "Project SITKA', obtained through a freedom of information application, on how the RCMP approach oppositional political activities, especially by indigenous peoples and resource develpment projects.

Federal and provincial governments in Canada want to be seen as climate leaders. Yet they continue to introduce policies and spend billions of taxpayer dollars to expand oil and gas production.

Protest against Keystone XL pipeline

A federal judge blocked the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline Thursday, saying the Trump administration’s justification for approving it last year was incomplete.

In a major victory for environmentalists and indigenous rights groups, Judge Brian Morris of the District Court for the District of Montana overturned President Trump’s permit for the Canada-to-Texas pipeline, which the president signed shortly after taking office last year.

Surely Jason Kenney, Alberta’s Conservative leader isn’t serious, surely he’s just joshing, when he talks about his latest ploy to promote Alberta oil.
