Enjoy BC's political sunshine - but wear a raincoat

By Will Horter -- Dogwood Initiative -- April 19, 2005

Democracy means government by discussion, but it is only effective if you can stop people talking --Clement Atlee

It’s a beautiful day in BC, because Gordon Campbell says so. You'll be hearing a lot of that sunny weather talk from Liberal candidates in the next few weeks, regardless of the weather. Because Gordon Campbell and the Liberal spin doctors say so.

Where Does Your Candidate Stand on Community Forestry?

April 19, 2005     Press release - BC Community Forestry Association

“Provincial candidates must prioritize local forests, local people, & local decisions,” say BC communities.

The BC Community Forest Association (BCCFA) is asking provincial candidates to support community forestry. The BCCFA is calling upon the next provincial government to advance the interests of rural BC. “If our government is committed to supporting BC communities, we need true local control and support for sustainable, community-based forest management,” says Noba Anderson, BCCFA board member and Executive Director of the Cortes Ecoforestry Society.

An Account of Gordon Campbell's (and mine) Campaign Launch

PEJ News:
Tonight I attended Gordon Campbell's gala Election Campaign Launch, held at Victoria's opulent Fairmont Empress Hotel. I figured, hey, I can't afford the Empress Fairmont myself, so why not hitch my own campaign launch up with Gordo's?!!

Elections BC Bans the WCWC's "Vote Wild" Newspaper

WCWC:
Yesterday, the Wilderness Committee was given written notice by Elections BC that they are banning the distribution of our "Vote Wild" newspaper as of today. The reason given for suppressing the newspaper is because they've deemed it to be "partisan advertising," as it criticizes the government before an oncoming election. Nowhere in our newspaper does it even mention the names of any political parties, except on the last page where it lists all the websites of the 4 main political parties in BC (BC Liberals, NDP, Green Party, Democratic Reform BC). Nor does it ever say who to vote for or against. In addition, the newspaper (Volume 24, Number 3) is part of a series of regularly published educational newspapers that the WCWC has published roughly six times a year for the past 24 years, millions of copies - it is not a one-time "advertisement".

Is the province equipped to tackle the pine beetle?s long-term impact?
By Ben Parfitt

As many British Columbians know, the province is witnessing one of its biggest logging booms in decades. More trees are falling than ever in the Interior, and will for years to come. But today?s boom presages a dark future wherein resource-dependent communities and the provincial treasury both will be hit hard. Legions of beetles killing millions of pine trees are behind the boom.
