A year-end message from RAVEN’s Executive Director Danielle Wilson
There are two possible futures for this country.
One future sees us double down on taxpayer subsidies for climate-destroying projects, for the benefit of oligarchs and hedge funds. The other future sees us apply Indigenous-led land-use plans to sustainably manage resources — with future generations in mind.
That future looks like clearcut logging and toxic tailings ponds, beside communities that lack clean drinking water. Armoured SUVs driving past homeless encampments. Dry riverbeds and inextinguishable wildfires.
The other? It looks like fire-resilient forest gardens producing sustainable timber and abundant mushrooms, rivers running red with salmon supplied by tribal hatcheries, and prosperity for all, grounded in a culture of sustainability and respectful relationships.
Vote for the future you believe in: support the Indigenous Nations who are in court to push hard in defence of a flourishing future.
