Today's announcement is a great opportunity to protect our air, water, climate, and communities across BC. We pledge to continue to push this new alliance to live up to its promises to stop new pipelines and build an economy fit for the 21st century.

Earlier today, a Greenpeace activist scaled the BC Legislature flagpole to fly a banner with a message to the two parties. See press release for details and statements here, and photos here.
