Voters in Kitimat just handed Enbridge a stunning defeat. What would happen if British Columbia voted on Northern Gateway as a province?
We asked you to get creative in urging the people of Kitimat to vote "NO" in the Northern Gateway plebiscite. Today is the last day to vote, so we've compiled some highlights from this crowd-sourced ad campaign.
A guest blog post from inside a Kitimat work camp that exposes the health and environmental effects already hurting the community. As the Enbridge plebiscite deadline approaches, he urges fellow residents to vote NO.
The NDP leadership race is open to party members as young as 12 years old. Too bad nobody has joined the race yet who might inspire young people to vote.
Premier Clark is just the latest politician to be tied to Northern Gateway lobbyists. Now that she’s premier, the onus is on Clark to prove she serves the public, not the pipeline company.

To get things done, its best to assume politicians are followers, not leaders: build a big enough parade and politicians will crawl over each other to get out in front.

A recent poll shows two thirds of British Columbians oppose Enbridge's plan to expand crude oil tanker traffic on our coast. In response, the company released a misleading attack video to try and discredit the findings, but nobody seems to be buying it.
She owns animal print undies. She likes an embarrassing amount of honey in her tea. She believes salmon swim in her veins. And she's got a message for CSIS and the RCMP: I have nothing to hide from you.
