In January, the Real Estate Foundation of B.C. released the results of public opinion research it conducted into British Columbians’ attitudes and priorities about sustainable land use. The results were extremely interesting and offer a number of causes for optimism in these often discouraging times.
Days ahead of the release of B.C.’s climate plan, Vancouverites are gathering to forge alliances with northerners and prevent liquefied natural gas (LNG) from undermining desperately-needed action on global warming.
Join the Wilderness Committee, Ancient Forest Alliance and Sierra Club BC for an update on Vancouver Island’s remaining old-growth rainforests and the movement to protect them!
The Wilderness Committee and Sierra Club BC have visited Schmidt Creek and confirmed logging has begun in BC Timber Sales (BCTS) cut blocks in the valley. The blocks, all located on steep slopes, were auctioned off this spring, sparking concern over the potential for landslides so close to important orca rubbing beaches at nearby Robson Bight.
Join us for an evening of conversation with experts from across the province as they uncover the truth behind LNG.
The start of this school year marked 20 years since Sierra Club BC’s Education Program began working with students across the province. We’re throwing ourselves a birthday party and you’re invited!
Ecojustice and Sierra Club BC are taking the province to court over an unparalleled decision to exempt two dams from environmental assessments — after they’d already been built.
The world's top climate scientists tell us what needs to be done to limit the worst impacts of climate change, and that it's still possible. But fracked gas facilities like LNG Canada could make it impossible to reach BC's climate targets. They're not the solution.
BC and Canada have made a lot of big mistakes. And this is one it’s not too late to correct. Here are five reasons the Site C dam can—and should—still be stopped.
Thanks to wonderful people - including you! - we’ve made incredible progress working to defend Vancouver Island’s last endangered ancient forests. Here are just a few highlights of what you’ve helped accomplish in the past 12 months on our old-growth forests campaign:
Sierra Club BC's Mark Worthing will be visiting Port McNeill with representatives from the Wilderness Committee to talk forests on November 6.
Together with representatives from Vancouver Island tourism businesses and local government, Sierra Club BC and Rainforest Rescue today delivered more than 185,000 names of concerned people around the world calling on the B.C. government to save B.C.’s last endangered ancient coastal temperate rainforest from clearcutting.
Treaty 8 First Nations deserve to be heard on the question of whether flooding more than 100 kilometres of the Peace River and its tributaries would be an infringement of their treaty rights. This question needs to be addressed before the Peace Valley is flooded.
