Our goal is to provide a comprehensive source of information, support
and opportunities for local action for people and groups who are concerned about different areas of negative impact in British Columbia. Areas such as 15-minute smart cities, Bill 36/Health Professions and Occupations Act (HPOA), Freedom of Information (FOI), and Community/ Food Safety & Food Sovereignty.
15 Minute Smart City Coalition
We work together to research and educate, first on a local level, then going further, to help our friends and neighbors navigate the current and ever-changing circumstances in BC. We care about our province and our community.
With the health care crisis in BC, we need to share what the new HPOA will create for even less services and health safety in BC. It is increasingly important for all to understand and get involved to collect and share helpful and informative resources.
When we are unsure of the truth, it is important to search. Using FOIs have always been a powerful way to see details that are not always properly shared. The FOI committee helps to save, share, and show FOIs of many types.
We are stronger together, and with the help of everyone we are making positive changes. This is something everyone can do.

The Creative Cities purport to be incubators of innovation and best practice for “culture” – But what does that even mean?
Smart City technology promises to change our world and offer citizens access to clean, sustainable urban environments.
However, when one looks at the whole picture it becomes clear that the development of these policies and systems without any guard rails to prevent government overreach and abuse will result in a loss of freedom for 90% of society.
No matter what comes next, we are committed to standing strong and supporting each other as we work to create positive change in our province, our country and our world.
