BC Studies is a journal of informed writing on British Columbia's political, economic, and cultural life, past and present. This November BC Studies will publish a special double issue, "On the Environment," and hold an online auction in conjunction with the issue to raise money for the Western Wilderness Committee and Greenpeace's "Great Bear Rainforest Campaign".
