Is the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Finally Dead?

In August 2014, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau made the trek to the tiny Gitga’at community of Hartley Bay, located along Enbridge’s proposed oil tanker route in northwestern B.C.

There, in the village of 200 people accessible only by air and water, he met with community elders and Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations.

Spooks, Spectres and the Regent

Spooks, Spectres and the Victoria Regent Hotel, Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Victoria, with its seaside location, crooked Gary Oaks, rocky outcroppings and centuries-old buildings is a natural Halloween location that most movie studios couldn’t recreate.

Raincoast Conservation: Pam and Miley right about B.C. Wolf Cull

Vancouver Island-born actor Pamela Anderson and American singer Miley Cyrus have rightly weighed in on British Columbia’s wolf cull, resulting in a stage tantrum by our elected entertainers, i.e. provincial politicians.

Premier Christy Clark’s awkward and derisive response to Anderson and Cyrus for having called out the unscientific, unethical and unwarranted B.C. wolf cull was inappropriately personal toward the two celebrities, while being factually incorrect about the cull. Evidently, Clark’s B.C. Liberal […]
