Paov --

Yesterday I did an interview with the CBC’s BC Today radio show about the Canadian Institute for Health Information’s (CIHI) latest report on wait times in Canada. [1]

The good news is that BC is one of the few provinces where wait times are going down for surgeries such as hip and knee replacements, radiation therapy, and cataract surgery.

After years of calling for action on wait times, your work is paying off.

Almost exactly one year ago, the BC Government announced its surgical strategy that included many of the solutions BCHC members like you have been calling for.[2] We are already beginning to see results.[3]

Whose Land Is It?

Rethinking Sovereignty in ‘British Columbia’

With Nicholas XEMŦOLTW̱ Claxton and John Price

12 Noon, Wednesday, March 27, Room 160

First Peoples House, University of Victoria

(Refreshment to follow)

Be it in court cases such as Tsilhqo’tin, or occupations by the Unist’ot’en and Gidumt’en, First Nations in this province are constantly challenging settler colonialism’s control of the land. In this talk, Professors Nicholas XEMŦOLTW̱ Claxton (CYC) and John Price (History) suggest that First Nations’ tenacity in their attachment to the land derives from a fundamental belief in Indigenous sovereignty that is incompatible with Crown sovereignty. This is particularly true in BC where the government totally repudiated treaties for...

Together against Islamophobia and racism

NationBuilder r1

Paov --

Like so many people around the world, we have been filled with horror and grief since hearing about the terrorist attack and mass shooting that happened against the Muslim community in New Zealand.

Though this terrible act was perpetrated halfway around the world, it is important for us to recognize that Islamophobia and racism exist in Canada as well. It was just two years ago that six Muslims were murdered in Quebec City. Police-reported hate crimes went up 47% in Canada in 2017, led by growth in violence targeting Muslim, Jewish and Black communities.[1] There are at least 300 known white supremacist organizations currently active in Canada.

To our Muslim coalition members and neighbours, we grieve with you and offer you our...
