Both David Eby and Anjali Appadurai are running for the BC NDP leadership. Questions have arisen about how new members have been gathered for Appadurai’s camp.

What’s behind the surge of new members? ‘Bad faith’ by Green interlopers? Or New Dems who’ve felt neglected for too long?

The controversy over memberships in the British Columbia NDP is just the latest skirmish in a struggle that goes back decades, says Harold Steves, a former MLA and an honorary lifetime member of the party.

Canada Pension Plan (CPP) deductions are collected by the government and given to CPP Investments, an independent crown corporation tasked with investing our money on behalf of Canadians. The fund has grown to $523 billion making it one of the largest pension funds in the world.

Rather than use its huge power to help move Canada to a green economy, CPP Investments has chosen to support the polluting fossil fuel-based economy, while claiming climate change is important.

Groups have documented the logging of old growth trees in at-risk areas proposed for deferral

Two years into a three-year process to defer the logging of some of B.C.'s grandest trees in its most ecologically diverse wilderness so that forestry stewardship could undergo a vast transformation, First Nations and conservationists are decrying a lack of progress and transparency.

Standing in a vast clearcut in British Columbia feels strangely dystopian. It’s quiet. There are no leaves to rustle, no bushes for animals to hide behind. The sun beats down and, you soon discover, there are no trees for shade.

Slash piles are your landmarks now — those mountains of branches leftover from logging. Come winter they’ll get burned. Bonfires against the snow, like a scene from Game of Thrones.
