Thanks to all of you, ancient forest protection has become a top election issue. Over the last few weeks, BC’s old-growth forests have been discussed in multiple political debates, news stories, online content, party platforms, and campaign speeches. Almost 1,400 messages have been sent and all three parties have made election promises that could profoundly impact the fate of BC’s endangered old-growth.

It’s now up to you to decide which party will put ancient forests first and to cast your vote.
