This study examines the political reach of the fossil fuel industry in British Columbia, as evidenced by donations to political parties and lobbying efforts by oil, gas and coal corporations and industry groups.
It finds a remarkable and disturbingly close relationship between industry and the provincial government – one that not only contradicts the province’s stated aim to fight climate change but also undermines democracy and the public interest.
