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.

Privilege Divides in a Pandemic
(click to read in context)

What does a city do with a problem that has been growing, and likely been being ignored, for years? Poverty, precarity and the problems of the marginalized in a globalized corporate world can only increase. How do we find solutions, and forms of caregiving, to take us to a better place?


COVID is revealing many of the cracks in our unsustainable culture and economy. Fighting and working desperately to preserve our bubbles of privilege are simply delaying tactics.

Tiny Homes for the Homeless

In Vancouver, a tent city of homeless people is Canada’s largest, yet city staff so far refuse to favourably consider an approach taken by many other cities. Tiny homes, installed quickly for a fraction the cost of current social housing, can be a “bridge” to safe, stable living for homeless citizens, research shows. Here is coverage by The Tyee on this potential short-term solution, including a visit to Seattle where 12 tiny home villages are slated to grow to 40.
