Dear Premier Christy Clark,

I would like to congratulate you on the investments in the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) in Budget 2013. The multi-million dollar investment was unique. While other ministries and agencies had their funding untouched or reduced, your
commitment to implementing the recommendations of the ALC’s 2010 core review is an important investment in British Columbia.

Following the election this spring the minister of the core review, Hon. Bill Bennett’s comments raised considerable concerns when he suggested to a reporter, that despite the work that had been done, the core review would include the ALC.

Remembrance Day Statement from the BC Green Party

On November 11, Canadians stop to remember, honor, and reflect.

We remember all those who gave their lives willingly to defend the many freedoms that our nation enjoys. We also remember with sorrow the fallen of other nations, even those who fought against us. War has taken so much from so many – as individuals, families, communities, and all mankind.
