In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Thanks for sharing this beautiful video. Living in BC, it is easy to take for granted that our beautiful nature will remain pristine for ever. The pipeline should definitely not happen and we must challenge our government and business community to not endanger our most precious resource and heritage.

  3. Such a beautiful yet saddening video. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This won’t necessarily turn out in a sad way. I think there is a good chance the people of British Columbia will refuse to allow this dangerous, carbon-spewing pipeline to be built.

  5. Will do; did you get a copy of my letter? I copied it to you. Should i add anything to Ms. Yamamoto?

  6. I got the CC.

    Regarding Ms. Yamamoto, add anything that you think might make the issue salient to her. For instance, any concern you have seen about the project in the community, the possibility that the pipeline could prove an electoral liability for her party, etc.

  7. Though now living in Ontario, I grew up in B.C. I was a deckhand on a collector boat in the salmon fishery in the 50s. I sailed the majestic channels of the Jonstone Straits, Knights Inlet and others. Absolutely matchless country and breathtaking in its beauty and treasure. I’m 82 now and I’ll lay down in the track of this pipeine outrage to stop it!

  8. That’s encouraging to hear! Hopefully, the people of B.C. will make their voices heard and block this project.
