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.

We can’t wait for our leaders to save us. We have to get off fossil fuels. The year was 1994. I was finishing a Bachelor’s of Science degree and chose climate change for my final paper in fourth-year physical geography. I don’t recall the grade I got, but what I learned solidified my determination to […]

The urgent battle to decarbonize B.C.

Time for emergency measures, at every level of society, to burn less oil and gas “Our government is working hard every day to build real climate action into everything we do,” Premier John Horgan wrote in fall 2019. That was after more than 100,000 youth climate strikers brought downtown Vancouver to a standstill. “I feel […]

Communities take a stand along the Trans Mountain pipeline route and online on Family Day Trans Mountain recently announced that it was re-starting construction after an extended shut-down. Alongside this project’s devastating climate impacts and Indigenous rights violations, pipeline construction threatens land, water and neighbourhoods across B.C. — including 1308 trees slated to be chopped […]
