In a huge team of dedicated Dogwood organizers, Alan Churchill stands out. Here's why...
Dogwood spoofs Energy and Mines release "Stuff your stockings with B.C. coal" with an industry letter to Minister Bennett.
Just when you thought public input into major resource export proposals couldn’t be undermined any more than it already has, you get something like Bill C-43.
BC Liberal's email to constituent suggests pipeline has already passed review
I felt isolated. I was slowly travelling through the desert more than 35 hours away from home, forced to sit and hope my text messages went through. A stream of questions ran through my mind: What can I do as a community organizer when I’m 2,000 kilometres away? Who can I call to face this head-on while I’m in California? Do I need to book a flight back to Canada as soon as I get off the train?
Dogwood organizers put the rubber to the road and make a huge impact on municipal elections in B.C.
Dogwood Initiative executive director Will Horter wins a Clean50 Advocacy award - and he couldn't have done it without you.

Our provincial leaders have made a habit of throwing their hands up in the air and falsely proclaiming coal exports are entirely out of their jurisdiction. It’s pretty sad that we have to push for leadership from our premier and ministers – but if we must, then we will.
We put out a call asking Dogwood supporters to help flood the Q&A with the kinds of questions the Texas-based oil company would have a hard time answering. 350 users submitted a whopping 431 Tweets. Can you guess which topic had the most impact?
But why our teams are active in key municipal elections.
Pipelines are federal business, goes the argument – especially if they go through your backyard. Try explaining that at a town hall meeting.
In a time when jurisdiction is a contentiously debated topic in B.C., the community of Sooke is taking a stand on their right to choose what happens to the land and water in their own backyard (literally).
Earlier this month regional organizer Cheryl Cameron joined organizing director Celine Trojand for the Dawson Creek-Fort St. John leg of her organizer training tour. So what are the chances of success for the Let BC Vote campaign in Northern B.C.? Cheryl's blog offers some insight.
Port Metro Vancouver may have approved the new coal export terminal, but they've yet to face the final showdown: obtaining an air emissions permit from the Metro Vancouver regional government. This is our golden opportunity.
Celine Trojand's never seen anything like this before. Entire neighbourhoods and communities are just waiting to have a conversation. The truth is that British Columbians care deeply about the outcome of the Northern Gateway project and their democracy. They’ve just never been asked to join in before.
