Right now, we’ve got a once-in-a-generation opportunity to raise our voices for stronger environmental protections. The federal government is reviewing key laws and processes. This will impact Canada’s environmental and energy decisions for years to come. Please add your voice. Together we can let our MPs know we care about making these changes!

It’s summer, and that means a lot of travel for families and communities. Have you considered buying carbon credits to offset some of your emissions? As an alternative, consider supporting Sierra Club BC’s work toward lasting protection of Vancouver Island’s carbon-rich endangered old-growth rainforest.

Record-breaking wildfires and heat waves are a reminder that we have little time to save nature, phase out fossil fuels and leap to a low-carbon economy, all at the same time. This ongoing state of emergency is a reminder that our planet is changing rapidly - and that our governments have to act like they mean it, to save our world as we know it.

It's official—the BC election period has begun. From now until Election Day, the rules make it difficult for Sierra Club BC to draw attention to issues you care about like the Site C dam, Kinder Morgan tankers and protecting old-growth forests. That’s why we need your help more than ever.

Did you know that as a BC Hydro ratepayer you are subsidizing projects like the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tankers proposal and Petronas’ liquefied fracked gas plant at Lelu Island? Sierra Club BC's new video and report, "Hydro Bill Madness," shows just how bad a deal we're being sold.

More than 50 community groups from across BC have signed onto an open letter arguing that fossil fuel companies owe BC communities for their fair share of the impacts of climate change. The letter was delivered to all 190 municipalities and regional districts in BC, asking them to demand accountability from the fossil fuel industry, up to and including considering lawsuits against Chevron and other big fossil fuel companies.

The sun rose today, as it always does, but we woke up to a profoundly changed world. A Trump presidency casts a frightening shadow over women, First Nations, people of colour, immigrants, the LGBTQ community and those whose faith sets them apart. It casts a shadow over Canada and generations to come.
