Thank You, Tyee Builders!

In December, we challenged our readers to become monthly Tyee Builders, and help us do even more impactful journalism in 2022. We call them Builders because that’s what they do — help us build our newsroom.

Over the past two years, we’ve doubled our staff, brought on new regular contributors and increased the number and quality of our stories. And we’re able to keep it open for all to read because of our supporters.

Our goal was to bring on 650 new monthly supporters, and we’re happy to report that by our deadline on Dec. 31, 783 new monthly supporters had signed up. Just about as many chipped in one-time contributions, and both keep trickling in.

See the full list of campaign contributors here.

"All companies that run polluting operations, like mining, should be required to post a bond, at the outset of operations to cover costs of site remediation. The terms could be renewed on an annual or biannual basis to ensure a realistic level.

"It's not great to put more regulation in place, but this is a relatively simple proposal that would provide meaningful employment and restore the land for other uses."

Keith, in response to The Tyee article 'It Pays to Pollute in BC'

Recharging Through Winter

It's cold. It's dark. It's winter. It might feel drab to stay close to home.

But our everyday rhythms stitched to our surroundings can make new perspectives emerge, often signposted by nature.

We’ve bundled together Tyee essays on making the most of life at home, from embracing work from our abodes, to weathering unruly environmental events alongside loved ones, to trekking into the wonders of nature to see the seemingly familiar reveal fresh lessons.

Cozy up with stories from winters past and present to experience the season anew.
