Almost two dozen Canadian environment groups are urging the federal Liberal government to make sure its next budget acknowledges that climate change is costing the country hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

The groups are releasing their annual Green Budget document today calling for money for green skills training, funds to retrofit transport trucks with fuel-saving devices and a massive increase in spending on global climate mitigation projects.

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.
