Meet Dogwood’s new Energy & Democracy Director

I’ve decided to work full-time on the issue of pipelines and oil tankers. Today is my first day at Dogwood Initiative, a nonpartisan group in Victoria working to organize British Columbians around a unique democratic opportunity.

You can read more about how I came to believe in the idea of a citizens’ initiative on oil tankers here on the Dogwood blog.

    For some reason, many months ago, your blog about quitting CTV showed up on my newsfeed on Facebook. And I read it, cheered it, and eventually forgot about it. Now, as a Dogwood subscriber and a person that works in the non-profit environmental industry in Victoria, I recall what I read in your blog and I am proud that there is someone there that has so much conviction that will stand for the many wrongs being done. I am glad that you’ve found your place in the world – the world will be better off for it.

    • Hear hear!! I’ll second that!! It isn’t often you see a young man have Kai’s integrity and morals! You will make us all very proud, of that I am convinced!

      Hey Kai, go get ’em!!

    • Yup, integrity and morals are a rare thing these days. Long live the democratic opportunities!

    Hey Kai, I would like to say that I appreciate the time and effort that you’re putting into the cause.

    So, thank you.

    • Seconded. It takes a lot of courage and integrity to do this, so well done Kai. My wife is originally from ‘Colombie-Britannique’ so we’ll follow this with interest. Hope the power shifts back to the people regarding those important decisions that affect both the environment and the region’s economy.

  3. So 2 months in, how’s it going? I have spent years over there so I know any ‘complex nonpartisan organizing challenge’ will doubtless be a huge undertaking. The very best of luck to you!

    Thanks for pointing us to the Dogwood blog, it’s a very good read.

  5. In order to grab one of the most suitable lotion, an individual will need to learn about
    her or his skin forms. If you have never tried lemon juice, then you might want to give
    it a try. These have been proved to be safe and effective dermatologically.
