Watch this moving speech by retired Kootenay MLA Corky Evans at The Common Sense Canadian's "Take Back Our BC" townhall tour event in Nelson, BC. Once again Corky was teamed up with the touring Rafe Mair. The inimitable Evans discusses globalization, the loss of our social democracy, and the need for citizens to become engaged in the political process to reclaim their environment and public resources. Note that it was at the Oceanside Coalition for Strong Communities’ conference in 2008 called “BC for $ale” that the dynamic duo of Rafe and Corky made their first appearance.
