Dear Sandra,

This month, B.C.’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change George Heyman is holding telephone town halls to talk about “CleanBC” and what a renewable future means in your community.

We need people with progressive views to join the calls and speak up about why moving to renewables is essential to ensuring a sustainable future for us all.

Trish Cocksedge, a member of the Council of Canadians’ Powell River Chapter, explains why she hopes people will participate: “Karen Tam Wu, B.C. Director of the Pembina Institute, states on Clean B.C.’s site that ‘B.C.’s new climate plan signals an exciting vision for a clean economy. In just over 10 years, all new homes and buildings will be low carbon. In just over 20 years, all new cars sold will be zero-emission.’

This sounds wonderful, but in the meantime, the Horgan government is supporting the Site C dam, new pipelines and the LNG industry – with the exception of the Trans Mountain pipeline. For a government promising lower carbon emissions and clean energy, this is not the way to go.

Please make your voice heard on the town hall conference calls this month. We all need to speak up for a future with alternative energy sources and no more pipelines, no more LNG. Tax dollars need to be spent shoring up sustainability, not rushing us to the brink of climate catastrophe.

CleanBC town hall conference call dates and times (sign up link below):

  • March 6, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. (PT) for the Lower Mainland and Southwestern B.C.
