    A: For MLA George Heyman: Does the government have any research to show that LNG from BC would displace the use of coal in Asia, and not just slow the expansion of their renewable energy industry?

    A: How can we ensure that the people of Vancouver’s voices, particularly those underrepresented and unheard voices are being continuously heard and embedded into policy making and that the lines of communication are clear, longstanding, authentic, transparent, meaningful and action oriented, rather than what might feel as our political representatives simply presenting us with policies or putting policies in place without the equitable and open consultation with the communities they will affect? How can we place our community’s voices over those of the individual policy makers?

    A: Minister Heyman, what will you do to make sure that BC Parks are not closed again? Parks are asking us to bring our own hand sanitizer, and there’s no park ranger ever around to help with rule breakers.

    A: Question for MLA George Heyman: Your government has been ordered by the BC Court of Appeal to reconsider its condition for the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion. What does your government plan to do to defend BC’s interests in this process?
    Your government has the power to require Trans Mountain to prepare for large-scale shoreline clean up efforts, assess the health impacts of an oil spill, plan for oil spill recovery work, make Trans Mountain to post bonds for the above. What are you going to do to regulate this project in these areas?

    A: I hope they will check out Guy Dauncey’s 26 wk plan for transitioning to a low/zero carbon economy & say what they think of it: https://thepracticalutopian.ca/2020/01/05/climate-emergency-a-26-week-transition-program-for-canada/ .

    A: For MP Jenny Kwan: COVID-19 disproportionately affects migrant workers in our country. We know that policies like status for all, strong wage protections, and legislated paid leave would be a strong step towards changing this. What is the NDP doing to push for these policies and hold the federal government accountable for their implementation?

    A: What changes are being put in place to ensure that our local old growth rainforests (e.g. Elphinstone Mountain area as one example, containing trees in excess of 1000 years old) are going to be protected, in light of the recent studies that indicate that rainforests with giant trees only have 0.08% (yes, less than 1%) of their original area left, not the 23% that is amount frequently quoted (a figure that incorrectly pools all kinds of old growth forest, most of which is composed of small trees that grow slowly in bogs, alpine areas, semi-arid regions, etc.)?

    A: When will you Stop Site C, as it brings nothing but destruction and is wasting $12 Billion.
    It is imperative to Stop Site C immediately! It defies almost all of the 7 principles: It ignores Indigenous Treaty 8 rights; BC Hydro is not transparent or accountable, there is no accountability and the cost will be over $12 Billion, all wasted as we do not need the power; It destroys the environment, the lands, waters, farms, wildlife; it uses short-term jobs as the excuse for its continuation, and does nothing to help transition workers to “green” and renewable jobs; Funds are going to unions, not stability and long-term benefits like energy conservation; the reservoir is a huge emitter of greenhouse gases, CO2 and methane which will make climate change worse! There are at least 12 alternatives! When will you stop the lie that it will be “clean” electricity, also?

    A: Digital privacy in both public and corporate realms is becoming more difficult to control, especially in the excuse of disaster/pandemic modeling. How can you use public policy initiatives to ensure safe population-level approaches while protecting people’s right to privacy.
