As reported in the Vancouver Sun, the Canadian government’s closure of environmental protection offices is part of the federal strategy of eliminating environmental protection law in order to remove all obstacles to energy export and extraction. Combined with recent bills that eliminate environmental study and monitoring by federal agencies, the closure of offices, programs and agencies once tasked with environmental protection is eroding public confidence in public officials. As the Harper administration attacks First Nations and other environmental activists, Canada is fast becoming a battleground in the war of globalization.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
