B.C.’s latest emissions data mark years of failure to reduce emissions by more than a token amount.
The provincial government quietly updated its greenhouse gas inventory on the eve of the December holiday season, showing that emissions were higher in 2015 than in 2010 and have risen in four of the last five years.

Time is running out to safeguard Vancouver Island’s highly endangered, globally rare old-growth rainforest. A new Sierra Club BC review shows logging of remaining old-growth rainforest on public and private lands on Vancouver Island is increasing.

A new Sierra Club BC review showed that logging of remaining old-growth rainforest on public and private lands on Vancouver Island jumped to 10,700 hectares in 2016. This number is more than 10 per cent higher than the annual average in the 10-year period 2005–2015 and equivalent to more than 26 Stanley Parks.
Today is a dark day. The government has passed up its chance to stop this misbegotten project. Instead, it has betrayed First Nations and all those who voted in hope of stopping Site C.
