A group of Grade 5 students takes action after learning about the threat of oil spills on B.C.'s coast
Canada: International pariah on climate change and asbestos.
The outcome of the May 2nd federal election forced us to think about new directions for the No Tankers campaign. Our team has recharged and reloaded. We’re powering up other components of the No Tankers campaign and making it bigger.
Rethink Communications, an ideas company based in Vancouver, B.C., developed these incredibly innovative posters for Dogwood's No Tankers campaign. Get the low down from the idea guys behind this awesome concept.
Compared to the graphic images from the "Arab Spring," Senate page Brigette DePape's silent display of a "Stop Harper!" sign during the throne speech was fairly tame. Who would have guessed that a stop sign could cause so much controversy?
The Capital Regional District (CRD) is stuck between a rock and a hard place. By seeking alternatives to disposing sewage sludge into the Juan de Fuca strait, the question arises: what else do we do with it?
Is pipeline worth toxic relations with First Nations in BC and Alberta?
The only majority that really matters is the majority of British Columbians and First Nations opposed to the Northern Gateway project.
Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the Juan de Fuca trail. A recent CRD decision has implications for the sustainability of the entire capital region.
Despite the national outcome, a West Coast tanker ban was the dominant environmental issue during the election, and will be provincially as well.
These videos paint a picture of the ups-and-downs of our efforts during the federal election.
Will the NDP hurt Ignatieff and the Liberals in BC? Probably not, here's why.
The Capital Regional District on Vancouver Island has a solid regional growth strategy but lacks the ability to enforce its own plan to preserve farmland and forests.
Enbridge's CEO Patrick Daniel has been saying that the Northern Gateway proposal is a clear and profound choice. We couldn't agree more. British Columbians have clear options heading into the election on May 2.
If Christy Clark continues to ignore the overwhelming majority of British Columbians calling for a ban, when election time comes she will see just how formidable opposition to oil tankers is throughout the province.
Meet Daniel Terry, the man behind Canada's first organic chocolate producer, Denman Island Chocolate.
There was a flurry of speculation last week after Pat Daniel was quoted in the Globe and Mail questioning the Liberal’s commitment to banning oil tankers on B.C.’s north coast.
Within a day, the NDP had jumped into the fray on their website, asking whether Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff had cut a secret deal on oil tankers.
Rest assured, in their platform released Sunday, the Liberals state clearly that they will ban oil tankers from B.C.’s north coast.
That leaves only one major Canadian political party that will not ban tankers: the Conservatives.
We’re working hard to make sure voters know there are only two types of politicians in B.C.: those who are willing to risk a catastrophic oil spill and those who aren’t.
Vancouver Islanders have a long and proud history of standing up for our home: in boardrooms, court rooms, classrooms and in the forests to preserve some of the most incredible natural areas anywhere in the world. The new battle to save Vancouver Island is a battle against reckless development.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon this March, Stafford Richter knocked on doors in the federal swing riding of Esquimalt/Juan de Fuca along with a handful of other volunteers. He's volunteering his time to talk to people about oil tankers in the lead-up to a possible spring election.
