B.C. deserves better environmental policies

with 5 comments

An editorial in the Georgia Straight hammers the environmental policies of the two major political parties. There is no mention of the Green Party – who happen to have much better policies. And not just about the environment either. Take a look at the Green Book before you vote. Please. 

If what I write about on this blog appeals to you – or if you like what you read about in the Green Book – please consider a donation. The NDP is funded by the Unions. The Liberals by Big Business. The Greens are just plain folks – you and me. People who know that there is a better way than Business as Usual, which is all Tweedledum and Tweedledee know.

You can donate on the Green Party webpage – or you could send a cheque to

Campaign to Elect Stephen Rees

#6 – 10251 Steveston Highway, Richmond BC V7A 1N2

I will of course send you a tax receipt.


Thank you

  1. Did you see this in The Hook, Stephen?

    I left a comment there about the omission of the Greens.

  2. You’re doing well in the STV simulation.

    If you were running in my riding, you’d have my vote Stephen.

  4. Best of luck with the Greens Stephen. I hope, and I suspect they do, have better luck in BC, than they do in Ontario.

    By the way I have added you Blog to my links, I hope you don’t mind.

  5. The Straight has published a number of articles detailing why they consider the Green Party to be a spoiler provincially. It is really frustrating that an otherwise thoughtful paper (though you may not agree with its thoughts, one could never accuse them of simply reprinting press releases) has taken such a reckless route when it comes to the facts regarding our shared environment.
