Tuesday Mar 18, 2014 We did it! This past Thursday afternoon I delivered fortunes to British Columbia's Minister of Environment, Mary Polak. It was amazing to see the Minister's office taken aback by a giant fortune cookie.... read more »

Friday Mar 7, 2014 Toward the end of the month, the Haisla and Gitga’at First Nations who live on British Columbia’s North Coast will prepare to gather herring roe on kelp. It’s a traditional practice that they’ve had for thousands of years. Further up the coast into Alaska, the people around Prince William Sound will once again go without any herring. They lost that way of life and the income it brought to their communities nearly 25 years ago with the Exxon Valdez oil spill.... read more »

Friday Feb 21, 2014 Just over a year ago the efforts of 75,000 activists to protect the Sacred Headwaters in British Columbia (BC) from fracking for natural gas paid off. ForestEthics Advocacy stood with you, with northern BC communities and with the Tahltan First Nation against one of the largest fossil fuel corporations on the planet: Royal Dutch Shell.... read more »

Wednesday Dec 18, 2013 Thank goodness for no fracking in British Columbia’s Sacred Headwaters, the sacred land of the Tahltan First Nation.

Wednesday Dec 11, 2013 As a year-end decision looms from the Canadian National Energy Board’s Joint Review Panel (JRP) on the massive Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline project, I’m sent back to that sinking feeling when energy company Enbridge first submitted its application in May 2011.

Wednesday Sep 25, 2013 In a northwest corner of British Columbia (BC) lies one of the province’s greatest natural gems—the Great Bear Rainforest. The Great Bear Rainforest is home to First Nation communities, salmon-bearing streams and inlets, and, of course, the elusive Spirit bear.... read more »

Monday Aug 19, 2013 The road north to British Columbia’s Sacred Headwaters is one where Alaska is the final destination for many. Distances to the next hotel “up ahead” are advertised in hours, not kilometres. Moose, bear, and even caribou are not uncommon sights on the roadside. Gas is a hefty $1.69 per litre, or $6.40 per gallon, and at $12 a gallon, ice cream is a total splurge for locals.... read more »

Saturday Jul 6, 2013 I am on my way to an event that will probably change my life forever. Right now I am lying across the back seat of a Prius with my legs on top of a pile sleeping bags while my friend Jolene drives us across the British Columbia/Alberta border close to Mount Robson. We are on our way to the Tar Sands Healing Walk in Fort McMurray.... read more »

Tuesday Jun 18, 2013 Sitting in my Vancouver office, sifting through my archive of photos to pull together a presentation, I was reminded of some of the past few years of events that lead to a historical announcement six months ago today.... read more »

Monday Jun 3, 2013 By the end of 2013, the three-member Joint Review Panel will submit their decision to the federal government on whether or not the Enbridge Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline and tankers project should proceed. You know, the project that hopes to bring Alberta’s tar sands oil over 1,000 kilometres (700 miles) across hundreds of salmon-bearing rivers and streams to British Columbia’s stunning, fragile coast?  ... read more »
