What's happening here? It's change

Dear Paov,

Politics in British Columbia are often a wild ride. Last week’s provincial election was no exception.

I watched our election results into the wee hours of the morning and never imagined ending up without a majority government. Since then I have been tossing and turning over the latest media analysis, polling and pundit ponderings. And here we are still. Waiting for election results.

One thing’s for sure though: this province is now a different place than it was just a few weeks ago.

60 per cent of voters rebuked the last government’s vision of industrial development at all costs. We said no to Kinder Morgan and we said no to the Site C dam.

And we said YES to a whole bunch of things that night – our long overdue need for provincial endangered species legislation, a new national park in the South Okanagan, a climate plan that makes a real difference to future generations, more respect for the rights and title of Indigenous peoples and a path for more intact wilderness and less fracked gas.

Amidst all of the uncertainty as we go into the next week and maybe even longer, we’ve got a massive opportunity.

And here at the Wilderness Committee we are ready to take it.

No matter what the election outcome we know what comes next. Right now, we’re planning strategy, gearing up for action, engaging with key allies and building new partnerships to be in position to help make as much positive change as possible in the coming months.

As a faithful supporter of the Wilderness Committee, we want to keep you on the inside track for the very latest developments. And we invite you to help us we mobilize thousands of British Columbians to take action and influence policy.

Here’s the change we invite you to share with us: A province without a dangerous tarsands pipeline pumping coastline-threatening bitumen into the Salish Sea. A British Columbia where valuable farmlands aren’t flooded against the wishes of Indigenous Nations to create power we don’t need. A 20th century province that takes steps toward a healthy future for us all rather than a backwards-looking, nature-destroying one.

These changes are in sight. If we continue to work together we can make them happen.

No matter who holds electoral power at the end of the day, we’ll hold their feet to the fire and ensure they make policy that protects the life-giving biodiversity of BC, and ensures a livable climate for all of us.

Are you ready for the future? Because it begins now, and with your help, we’re ready to make it better.

For the wild,
