The BC provincial election campaign officially opens today, against the backdrop of a flip-flop, in the traditional support of environmentalists.

The David Suzuki Foundation, Pembina Institute and ForestEthics are attacking the New Democrats for thier campaign promise, to drop the controversial Liberal government carbon tax.
