Your top priority for the new Health Minister?

NationBuilder r1 Dear Paov,

B.C. will have a new Health Minister tomorrow, and we’ll be setting up a meeting with them right away.

Can you tell us what your top health care priority is for the new government so that we can raise it directly with the Minister?

During the provincial election, we talked to thousands of voters about the issues that matter most to you.

We took your feedback and evaluated the major BC parties’ platform positions on five areas that would improve public health care for everyone. Now we need to set the agenda for what they tackle first.

What is your top priority for the new BC government? Select your top issue:

Kinder Morgan wants to start construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in September. For Kwantlen and Nlaka'Pamux First Nations, Kinder Morgan's plans represent the continuation of 150 years of colonial encroachment, which they continue to resist and resurge against.

We invite you to come and hear from Kachina Bige (Cree and Dene from Lutsel K'e) and Brandon Gabriel from Kwantlen First Nation about the history of their territory (which stretches from Surrey through Fort Langley and further East), and their plans to begin construction of a Healing Lodge in the path of the expansion, among other elements of their planned and ongoing resistance.

You vs Big Oil


URGENT: Big Oil wants to drill in a conservation area of the east coast — and Minister LeBlanc is caving into the pressure.

Highly endangered right whales that swim in the area are already washing up dead, and if this absurd plan goes through, it could be disastrous for them and thousands of other species.

More than 10,000 Leadnow members have already sent messages urging LeBlanc to ban all oil and gas activity in this critical ocean habitat. Will you add your voice before the deadline for comments in 4 days?

URGENT: Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc  — responsible for protecting our oceans —  is caving in to pressure from Big Oil. After multiple meetings with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, LeBlanc and his team want to allow oil and gas exploration in 80% of a proposed Marine Protected Area in the Laurentian Channel.[1-2]

July 12, 2017

B’nai Brith Canada is expecting that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will soon rescind its recent decision to order the removal of certain Israeli wines from store shelves.

“B’nai Brith has received a lot of information on this matter from multiple sources and officials during the past 24 hours as we were advocating on behalf of the community," said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B'nai Brith Canada. "We can say now that we are expecting this disturbing decision to be corrected in short...

RELEASE: Change of government in BC opens the door to electoral reform!



 

For Immediate Release
Sent to media: June 30, 2017


Change of government opens the door to electoral reform!

Since May, citizens in British Columbia have been biting their nails waiting to see who will govern their Province. NDP Leader John Horgan emerged from the Government House to announce that he had been invited to serve as B.C.’s next premier.

“I think this is an extraordinary opportunity for a new legislature to work co-operatively,” he said. Speaking for Fair Vote Canada (FVC) and its twelve thousand supporters in BC, Terry Dance-Bennink, chair of FVC’s BC Steering Committee says she “couldn’t agree more. It’s time for cooperative politics and we believe a promised third referendum on electoral reform is poised to return a favourable outcome for voters.”

BREAKING: BC

We won! After weeks of pulling dirty tricks to try to hold onto power, Christy Clark’s Liberal government has officially been defeated. BC's Lieutenant-Governor just invited the NDP to form government after Christy Clark lost a vote of confidence in the legislature — and thanks to a historic cooperation agreement struck last month, the NDP and Greens will govern the province together. [1]

This victory is big. After 16 long and painful years, the BC Liberals have lost their grasp on power in one of the most suspenseful elections in BC’s history. Now we have an incredible opportunity to make progress on electoral reform, on climate, and getting big money out of politics. You played a huge role - your signatures, your votes, your donations, and your time were all part of making this groundbreaking election outcome a reality.  

There’s so much celebrate about this election and the role people power played in getting the outcome we deserve. Will you share this celebratory graphic to spread the excitement and to show support for the new government? Click to share it to your Facebook page!

Hi all:

Website statement:

Boycott Air Canada to support the military embargo on Israel

Did you know that Air Canada is outsourcing maintenance work for its B787 and B767 jets to Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)? And that IAI, a leader in drone production, is wholly owned by the government of Israel? And that Gaza and its civilian population are mercilessly used as a human laboratory for developing and thereby advancing the marketing of such drones?

IAI brags...
