The Dogwood Podcast

Made with love in beautiful B.C., the Dogwood Podcast brings you to the front lines of the biggest political battles around our province’s land, air and water. Through stories and strategy, our guests will give you the tools to make a difference in your community.

July 2018: Money-laundering in B.C. — who is to blame?

In the wake of the explosive Peter German report which connected money-laundering in B.C. to the fentanyl crisis and housing market, we look at reactions from journalists, politicians and the public, talk about who is to blame and discuss the growing calls for a public inquiry.

This episode was recorded on unceded Coast Salish territory.

June 2018: Trans Mountain Q&A

Do you have questions about the government’s buyout of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline and tanker expansion project? We hosted a live Trans Mountain Q&A on Facebook to address Dogwood supporters’ most pressing Trans Mountain questions.


April 2018: When pipelines and tankers spill…

The B.C. government filed a reference case to the province’s highest court to prove their jurisdiction to protect local people from diluted bitumen. And they want to hear from you (yes, you!) about oil spill response.

Your hosts Lisa and Sophie are joined by two very special guests — West Coast Environmental Law’s Stephanie Hewson, and former Trans Mountain engineer Romilly Cavanaugh — to give you the information you need to submit your comment.

March 2018: The dark underbelly of B.C.

With dirty money pouring into Vancouver casinos, luxury car dealers and real estate market, Attorney General David Eby heads to Ottawa to ask for help. Meanwhile, the FBI is investigating Trump Tower Vancouver. And it turns out the worldwide Facebook data scandal got its start in B.C. Sure, we live in a beautiful province – but what lies beneath the surface?


February 2018: Pipelines and B.C. wines.

A lot happened in B.C. this past month! Between B.C.’s announcement of their new regulations and restrictions on the transport of bitumen to the wine war between Alberta and B.C., British Columbians have a lot to sort out. With the help of some expert guests, we are here to help weed through the poli-speak and media rhetoric to find out what’s actually going on.


January 2018: Oil tanker spill hits close to home for B.C.

In this first Dogwood podcast episode of 2018, we tackle the biggest but least covered story of the month: the largest oil tanker spill in a quarter century. Could a similar tragedy happen on the B.C. coast?

    Money can’t buy clean water, and the life that lives in it. Money can’t buy clean air, the plan is to not dirty it in the first place. It would seem the only care the government has is money, taxes and destributing our hrard earned creativity. As for the environment – it’s just words (hot air). The governments credibility is shot in my opinion – I don’t believe a word you say.
    I don’t want even the remotest chance there might possibly be a oil spill on the west Coast. Stop the kinder morgan dead in its tracks.

    I fully support the efforts to cancel the Kinder Morgan deal, as I firmly believe we should not be further supporting the fossil fuel industries with money better spent developing new sources of renewable energy. I also believe that BC should consider the viewpoint that it is somewhat hypocritical to stop the pipeline while exporting not only BC coal, but also allowing the shipping of American coal which cannot be shipped from the US ports.
