BC Parties on Their Platforms

It’s been a race for B.C. parties to get their platforms out following the snap election call and in time for the leaders debate on Oct. 13.

But they’ve been weighing in on key issues since the election announcement, and The Tyee has been keeping up in our Where They Stand series along the way.

Now all three major party platforms are out: the BC Liberals released theirs the day of the debate, and the Green party the day after. Read all The Tyee coverage below.

Change Is Happening
(click to read in context)

The world is changing, and the status quo that was is ending.

We have reached the point where literally being on fire for the summer is the alternative to meaningful change. Change is happening, not just because we need it but because at this point we don't have a choice.

With those unavoidable lifestyle changes will come political change, too. Austerity and neoliberal politics are basically incompatible with surviving this change. That includes our politics.

New Strength for Old Growth

It’s a struggle with decades-long roots.

The effort to protect old growth forests is thriving in B.C. A recent hunger strike raised awareness. The deep history and ecological knowledge of Indigenous peoples, as Joe Martin of the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation vividly describes, is part of the story.

The Tyee’s recent series on old growth follows the struggle against logging on Vancouver Island and explores B.C’s provincial tree, the red cedar. And in a recent story, Andrew MacLeod chronicled the fight for northern B.C.’s Great Bear Rainforest.
