    Podcast for May 2019: The Pact for a Green New Deal in Canada

    This week a coalition of Canadians from all walks of life including labor groups, environmental organizations, Indigenous groups, scientists, and artists, came together to launch a call for a Green New Deal in Canada. But in order to get to a just and equitable transition that creates jobs and reduces carbon emissions, we must stop handing out billions of public dollars to coal, oil and gas companies. That’s why Dogwood has launched an action to call on the government to consider the purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline with our tax dollars as a subsidy.

    Podcast for November 2018: Talk to your friends about Pro Rep

    As we head into the final campaign push for electoral reform in B.C., many of us are reaching out to friends, family and acquaintances to encourage them to vote yes to Pro Rep. But some of us are wondering how to engage folks who aren’t likely to vote or dragging their feet to get their ballots in before the November 30 deadline. In this episode, Dogwood’s own Vancouver Organizer, Emily Glass, discusses how to have motivating conversations with the people in our lives and ensure they vote for Pro Rep.

    September 2018: We quashed the Trans Mountain pipeline. Now what?

    September 2018: We quashed the Trans Mountain pipeline. Now what?

    On August 30 2018, the Federal Court of Appeal ruled on fourteen different court cases brought forward against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion’s NEB review process. And they all won.
    The court invalidated the permit approval on the basis of two claims: 1. The NEB under Trudeau’s government did not adequately consult First Nations and 2. The review did not account for impacts on marine life. Now the federal government must go back to the drawing board and restart the entire process. So what now?
    With the electoral referendum on the horizon, Dogwood supporters are ramping up for an exciting campaign on Proportional Representation which ensures a more representative democracy. This is a unique opportunity to implement a new and exciting program called relational voting which ensures our friends and family members are motivated and up to date on the facts they need to get their ballots in this fall.

East Coast Vancouver Island ,

Fresh takes on BC's climate and democracy challenges.

Though not as polished as heavy hitters like Canadaland the Dogwood Podcast joins its peers with a uniquely ‘BC’ take on the issues.

Love It

Information is power. I love having a BC podcast that provides information that I might not hear from other mediums or gives context to show a bigger picture. The epidodes are organized well and easy to follow. Highly recommend!
