As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.

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.

Based upon a process initiated by Sierra Club BC, UNESCO visited the Peace River Valley to investigate how the Site C dam endangers Wood Buffalo National Park. The newly released report strongly criticizes Canada for failing to protect its largest World Heritage Site. This report demonstrates the Trudeau government should never have allowed any approvals for the Site C megadam in the first place.

For our Peace Valley Campaigner Galen Armstrong, thinking of the people who are most directly facing the consequences of the Site C dam is what motivates him to keep going. Even if it sometimes feels like the odds are stacked us, what we are doing makes a difference and it's still possible to stop the dam.

A new CCPA-BC report shows that between 2013 and 2016, more raw logs were shipped from BC than during any other four-year period in the province’s history, prompting two forest industry unions and three leading environmental groups to call for a ban on raw log exports from old-growth forests and bold government action to stimulate BC’s flagging forest sector.

At the Compost Education Centre, we "grow soil." We grow nutrient dense healthy foods, and have biodiverse gardens, and that’s because we are concerned with the life that is within our soil. Soil is an extremely important part of the food system. And it’s often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.
