Earlier, we speculated PowerUp Canada executive director Tzeporah Berman would be named to the provincial government's green energy advisory task force, which has since been divided into four groups. So it shouldn't come as a surprise to Public Eye readers that today, Ms. Berman - the co-founder of ForestEthics - was named to the group responsible for resource development. Also joining that task force from the environmental community are Pembina Institute energy solutions director Matt Horne and David Suzuki Foundation chair James Hoggan.
The David Suzuki Foundation, the Pembina Institute and ForestEthics issued a statement at the beginning of the recent election campaign, criticizing the New Democrats' platform as being a "step backwards for climate action."
At the same time, the groups applauded the Liberals for taking British Columbia from being a climate change "laggard to leader in four years."
Ms. Berman was also critical of the New Democrats' during the campaign, making headlines when she announced she had quit the party over its opposition to the carbon tax.
