Climate

We’re in a climate emergency. From deadly forest fires to collapsing salmon runs, B.C. communities are already experiencing devastating impacts to our homes, local economies and ways of life.

We have less than a decade to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. If we can break the grip oil and gas has on our politics, and speed the switch to clean energy, we can protect our home, create good local jobs and build a safe future for our kids.

Break free from fossil fuels

Only governments captured by the oil and gas industry would build not one, but two pipelines during a climate crisis at the end of the oil age. Here in B.C., billions of dollars of public money are being used to build some of the largest fossil fuel export projects in North America, like the Trans Mountain pipeline and LNG Canada.

We will not allow our government to use our tax dollars to prop up a dying industry that violates Indigenous rights and fuels the climate crisis.

Local Power for B.C.

Despite the illusion of ‘clean B.C.’, we use fossil fuels to heat our homes, deliver goods and move us everywhere we go. We can cut Big Oil off at the knees by kick-starting a clean energy revolution in our communities — let’s speed the switch from gas to electricity for transport and home heating, and make sure the new power we’ll need benefits local and Indigenous communities.

The government and BC Hydro should be leading the charge, but too often they’re getting in the way. Our Local Power campaign is fighting to clear the roadblocks and blaze a trail towards community-driven clean electricity generation all over B.C.

Together, we’ll fight climate-killing projects while crafting made-in-B.C. solutions we can use today.

Renewables could deliver twice the power at half the price, evening out our losses on the troubled dam Never put all your eggs in one basket. It’s a saying for a reason. Yet over and over again, governments gamble on megaprojects. Even when they know that nine out of ten giant dams and pipelines come […]

Honey, we need to talk about Site C

Giant dam for fracking companies could double your Hydro bill The Site C dam was supposed to be a gift from B.C. taxpayers to international fracking companies. We would supply them with cheap electricity, they would blast methane gas out of underground shale rock in the province’s northeast. We would get jobs and revenue, they […]
