Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services has a unique way of taking care of their homeless population, including those who may have a history of addiction or mental health. Their quick fix is to pay to bus them to Vancouver and Victoria in British Columbia. Problem solved. For them. Not so for BC, and not so for those who are shipped away to neither home nor job, and no health care until they qualify.

Two young First Nations men were each bought one-way bus […]

We discovered a valley in BC with a unique geography, fine climate and superb wines. Located in British Columbia, Canada, the agricultural Okanagan Valley reinvented itself when someone discovered that the landscape and the benefits of the mild climate had potential for growing grapes.

The real reason British Columbia is spending $9 billion on Site C Dam

The real reason Clark and Co. are spending $9 billion on Site C Dam in Northern British Columbia: Ben Parfitt, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

From a lookout high atop a windswept bluff, the scale of work already underway at the site of a third mega-dam across the Peace River is daunting. Large tracts of boreal forest are logged. Vast amounts of topsoil are stripped away for what could one day be a trailer city housing hundreds of workers. Gravel from the fish-bearing river continues to be excavated to build a roadbed that […]
