The Harper government is pulling out of a United Nations convention that fights droughts in Africa and elsewhere, which would make Canada the only country in the world outside the agreement.

NEW GE FREE ZONE IN BC: On March 8, Cherryville became the 13th BC municipality to pass a resolution to ban GMO crops! Three weeks ago local volunteer group Bee SAFE, held a public meeting at the Cherryville hall to discuss how GMO crops affect other crops. “There is no co-existence possible between GMO crops and other crops – by not deciding to ban them, we're deciding to ban every other type of agriculture and to put the future of our food and our farms in the hands of corporations like Monsanto, who own patents on GMO seeds” said Huguette Allen. Congratulations Cherryville!

EDMONTON - Alberta aboriginals are lining up against an energy project deemed crucial to the B.C. economy.

At least six bands in the northern part of the province — supported by the Alberta government — have registered major concerns with B.C. Hydro's plans to build another dam on the Peace River, saying the utility still hasn't understood the effects of previous projects on the Athabasca Delta and refuses to study them.

BC Action Alert: Stop the GM Apple - Deadline: February 28, 2013

In BC, please contact your Member of the Legislative Assembly before February 28! Before the Legislature breaks for the election, ask your MLA to take a stand against the genetically modified (GM) apple. You can search for your MLA's contacts using your postal code here: http://www.leg.bc.ca/mla/3-1-1.htm Thank you for taking this important action!

This year, the small BC company called Okanagan Specialty Fruits could get approval in the US and Canada for its GM “non-browning” apple, engineered to keep from going brown after being cut. Contamination from GM apples threatens the future of BC apples, and the farmers who grow them. BC apple growers have already rejected the GM apple and polls show 69% of Canadians oppose it! For more information on the GM apple please see http://www.cban.ca/apple Sign up to get action alerts in the BC campaign here https://groups.google.com/d/topic/gm-apple-action-bc/B0QIQkN7Nz4/discussion

The choice President Obama has faced in recent weeks – whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline – has beenframed as a choice between losing the support of environmentalists or alienating America's key ally, Canada. Here's a better approach: President Obama should use the Keystone XL pipeline issue to send a message to Canada that its environmental policies are damaging to both Canada and the world.
