Now is the time to strengthen public health care

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov --

In the last few months, the BC government had to make many hard choices to ensure that our hospitals and health care workers were safe and ready to deal with COVID-19. The caring and thorough response to the COVID pandemic in BC has been extraordinary. The BC Health Coalition commends Dr. Bonnie Henry, Health Minister Dix, and all frontline workers in our public health care system.

One of those very difficult choices was to postpone non-urgent surgeries, leaving many people waiting longer to get the help they need and wondering when they will be getting their important surgery. BC’s Surgical Renewal Plan was announced on May 7th to deal with the biggest surgical backlog in our history. It includes some commitments to bold public solutions, but also worrying plans to expand the use of for-profit surgical clinics. The Surgical Renewal Plan announcement can be found by clicking HERE.

In the 3 years prior to the pandemic, BC's government made significant progress in reducing surgical wait times by increasing public surgical capacity and expanding the use of efficient best practices. These improvements helped reduce wait times for all British Columbians. However with this Surgical Renewal...

Stepwin Webinar

Dear PAOV,

Stepwin Webinar: A Fresh look at Old Principles

Join Arman Mottaghi, BCSEA Board Director and CEO of STEPWIN on Friday, May 15, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. (PST) to learn about Building Science Fundamentals.

The BC Step Code has been bringing high-performance houses to British Columbia, and StepWin is a web-based tool to help builders comply with the code, on budget. So far, StepWin is freely available in 5 BC cities. This free webinar is about building science fundamentals: the keys to cost-effective, high-performance construction. The StepWin team will cover how the software promotes good building science principles in residential construction projects. Over 3 million building design alternatives have been assessed by StepWin since its inception. This massive dataset backs building science principles. The principles that translate to comfortable, durable, and energy-efficient designs while meeting the project's budget and constraints. The team will put a design in StepWin, explain the workflow, and show how the results can be analyzed.

Register here to join the webinar or view the recording at a later date.

[Sjsall] Red Cedar Cafe

Dear Friends of SJS,

Offer of meals and request for donations from Ben Isitt:

Dear Friend,

I hope you are well.

During these extraordinary times, I have been volunteering with a new not-for-profit organization, the Red Cedar Café, providing free, healthy meals to people in need in our community.

During our first three weeks of operations, we have distributed more than 1,200 meals to community members, including senior citizens, low-income people and people in self-isolation. The Red Cedar Café adheres strictly to public health guidelines in the preparation, serving and delivery of healthy food to community members.

I am writing to ask if you are in need of free, healthy meals. Our volunteer delivery drivers distribute prepared frozen meals to homes through the city and region every Thursday and Sunday. Please do not hesitate to place a meal order if you could use some healthy food, via this online form:

[evoz] action for Guatemala

Dear CASC supporters, A few months ago some of us met with a Guatemalan activist and a supporter about the mine in Guatemala that Pan American Silver had bought. This mine has been the site of peaceful demonstrations by the Xinta people on that region. They have nor been consulted or respected by the Giat. government or the mining company about the damage wrought by this mine. Opposition has been met with brutal violence. PAN AMERICAN is registered in BC and its office is in Vancouver. The AGM which some of us planned to attend was scheduled for early May. It will now b held on line. We can not meet it is still possible to share information and take action for social justice. Please read this article and if you can, follow its suggested actions. http://org.salsalabs.com/o/676/p/dia/action4/common/public/?action_KEY=23926&okay=true I also want to thank those who have expressed concern about me at this time. I have an injured shoulder and am unable to do very much; I am being well cared for and wan for nothing as I try to keep up with the world on my computer – not easy with one hand. I do have trouble with answering email, so I welcome phone calls...

(Webinar) BC Climate Action: Energy Efficiency & Clean Energy for Homes and Communities

Hi PAOV,

Remember to sign up for our one hour webinar on Thursday, April 23rd, 2020 at noon

Join Lana Gonoratsky from the BC Sustainable Energy Association with Grant Moonie from the Energy Efficiency Branch and Nairn Albrecht from the Community Energy Branch of the B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources.

The Government of British Columbia is implementing the CleanBC plan and taking action on climate change. Identifying the more impactful projects and implementing them first is important for achieving early successes on the ground.

This webinar will introduce you to a decision-making framework to help identify and evaluate energy efficiency, electrification and other clean energy projects. We will dive deeper into residential energy efficiency incentives (Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate programs) and community-scale clean energy projects that help to reduce emissions and to decarbonize energy systems in British Columbia. We will discuss examples of effective projects, providing insights into successes and challenges. We'll then discuss resources and support available for getting your project off the ground!

Join the BC Sustainable Energy Association in partnership with the Community Clean Energy Branch and the Energy Efficiency Branch of the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources on April 23rd, 2020...
