The BC Sierra Club has been at the forefront of eco-activism for almost 50 years. Mark Leiren-Young talks to their campaigns director, Caitlyn Vernon, about protecting the whales, the oceans and her award-winning book about the Great Bear Rainforest.
“This is where the ludicrousness of the way we measure economic progress comes into play: an oil spill is good for GDP”
