Deep Dive

Get to the bottom of something big.

Living in a Persistent Pandemic

As cases surge in the U.S. and bounce back up in B.C. we are forced to contemplate a long new normal for keeping ourselves safe. We can’t bet on a widely effective vaccine soon. In fact, it may be years or never before we stamp out the coronavirus. So how must we adapt? Changing our behaviour is key. These Tyee reports by contributing editor Andrew Nikiforuk, author of two books about pandemics, provide guidance worth revisiting.

Tyee Insider

What we're up to. How to be involved.

Get to Know The Tyee Team, Three Things at a Time

Three Things is our behind-the-scenes interview series where we ask people in The Tyee network about what’s on their mind and look for connections between their stories, work and what’s happening in the world.

Since shifting to a remote office, we’ve been spending a lot of time on Zoom. Along the way, we’ve gotten to know each other better, often catching glimpses into each other’s lives that you just don’t get in a regular office.

We’re bringing readers into these sessions so you can meet the team and get some insight into what makes our reporters and editors tick.

Three Things goes live on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. PST. Sign up for the next zoom webinar here or watch for our livestreams on Facebook or Youtube.

Check out all of our past Three Things episodes here.

First Nations Are Not a Monolith
(click to read in context)

First Nations are just as diverse in their interests and governance structures as other societies. It's a colonial mindset to expect them to be a uniform, monolithic bloc. There are differences of language, culture, history and interests just as there are between other nations. This is about the Wet'suwet'en and how they do things. It takes a long time (and I'm by no means accomplished) to begin to understand that.
