Let’s rebuild a stronger B.C.

Premier Horgan and government have earmarked $1.5 million for B.C.s economic recovery. It must be of benefit to ALL British Columbians and not a return to “business as usual”; with the big corporations, especially fossil fuels, lumbering and mining who helped push us into our current economic mess of climate change with dirty air, water and soil.

People need to go back to work, not on “stranded assets”, but in alternative energy jobs that reduce greenhouse gases and that pay well in our needed building and renovating of decent housing, growing local healthy foods, public transportation and other systems that improve life for all, not just the few.

Face the science facts that have revealed the contribution to pandemics, fires, droughts, storms and the avoidance of a just transition for all industrial and domestic workers.

It is essential that you use our tax money to move us forward to rebuild a greener, fairer and more resilient B.C.

Thank you for moving us away from extinction capitalism.
