Sierra Club BC and a hereditary leader from the Kwagu'ł nation react to the independent old-growth panel report and initial steps being taken by the B.C. government to protect some of province’s last remaining old-growth forest and a number of big trees.
B.C. government’s own data show total greenhouse gas emissions for 2018 are more than three times larger than official numbers, when including uncounted emissions from “forest management.”
Sierra Club BC reacts to a new independent scientist report "B.C.’s Old-Growth Forest: A Last Stand for Biodiversity."
The new Canadian greenhouse gas emissions report shows that despite efforts to reduce climate pollution, B.C.’s annual emissions increased by 3.5% in 2018.
A large collection of health, faith, environmental, labour and social justice groups, representing one million three hundred thousand Canadians, have sent a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and his cabinet asking that in the federal bailout to the oil and gas industry, expected later this week, no more money be given to companies, only to workers.
