Documents contradict previous statements made by RCMP Chief Supt. John Brewer.


British Columbia’s Public Safety Ministry worked to provide policing resources for the arrest of Wet’suwet’en and their supporters who blocked a remote resource road in northern B.C., even as the province’s southwest faced unprecedented flooding last November.

Allies are always needed at the front lines. It's still winter in the Wet'suwet'en Yintah. So if you're a hardy committed individual prepared to spend some time standing with these brave land defenders, apply at the following websites:

Two groups of First Nations have signed option agreements to acquire a 10-per-cent equity stake in the Coastal GasLink pipeline, a natural-gas project under construction in northern British Columbia.

The agreements, announced Wednesday, are exercisable when the pipeline comes into service and are subject to customary regulatory approvals.

For the First Nations involved, the potential equity stakes are one of the first opportunities they have had to own part of a project that crosses their traditional territory.

The NDP’s economic strategy is big on buzzwords. But it falls well short of what the IPCC demands.

The BC NDP released its “StrongerBC” plan in February, shortly before the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its latest report, Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. Neither is an easy read.

Fossil-fuel firms want to turn violence and bloodshed into an oil and gas propaganda-generating scheme. The goal: a drilling bonanza

Last week, we all watched in horror as Vladimir Putin launched a deadly, catastrophic attack on Ukraine, violating international treaties across the board. Most of us swiftly condemned his actions and pledged support for the Ukrainian people whose country, homes and lives are under attack.

Climate change is already threatening everyone on the planet.

For everyone alive today, this is an inescapable truth. We are on a road to extinction. Until we bring greenhouse gas emissions down to zero everywhere in the world, the planet will continue to warm. The only question is, how long will we stay on this path?

The 184.6 megawatt (MW) Meikle Wind power project located 33 kilometres north of Tumbler Ridge is B.C.'s largest. According to a recent report, B.C. would need to build hundreds of such wind turbines, thousands of solar panels and ramp up biofuel production to meet its decarbonization plans.Pattern Development

The industry is wildly fudging the numbers to make itself look like a major job creator. We shouldn’t be fooled.

For years now, any discussion about climate action or the need to move off fossil fuels has run headlong into a familiar quandary: The industries fueling the climate crisis create good jobs, often in areas of the country where finding work that can support a family is incredibly difficult.
