Political Capital 14 - BC's restart plan, old growth protests and more

BC is starting again - and so are the protests.

How does B.C.'s long-awaited restart plan change the political landscape? Premier John Horgan is facing heavy pressure due to protests in his riding against old-growth logging at Fairy Creek, so why isn't he responding? Host Rob Shaw is joined by Jillian Oliver, Maclean Kay, and special guest this week Marie Della Mattia.

  • Last week's Political Capital waded past cruise ships, glided through Kevin Falcon's campaign launch, and stamps your vaccine passport.
  • Katy Merrifield couldn't make this week's show - but nil desperandum, you can catch a detailed conversation with her on this week's Ellected. She and Sarah Elder-Chamanara talk two different premiers and their offices, leadership campaigns, and how to get involved in politics.
  • On the podcast portion of the show - which is not in the shorter YouTube version above -  Maclean mentions a fascinating interview with then-Green leader Andrew Weaver. (For the podcast version, check Spotify or whatever your favourite platform and search for Political Capital)
