  • Across the country, a movement is growing to protect the Rockies and its headwaters from open-pit coal mining. Eight new coal mining projects have been proposed on the Eastern Slopes – and we need to stop them before they start.

    Grassy Mountain, the project that’s closest to moving ahead, is currently being assessed by a joint federal-provincial review panel. That panel’s report will be delivered to Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, on June 18th.

  • The social problems we’re working to address are often scary and rage-inducing, but our work toward change doesn’t have to be! Making space for creativity in our tactics and strategies can help us reach people we don’t know yet, change people’s minds, and bring life and joy into our work.

  • Pieridae Energy, the company behind Goldboro LNG, has asked the federal government for nearly one billion dollars to get their dangerous liquified natural gas (LNG) project off the ground.
