The B.C. Liberal government has tabled a budget and fiscal plan for 2015/16 – 2017/18 which adheres strongly to two of three stated values: “discipline” and “prudence”—but less so to the third, “vision.” Budget 2015/16 again prioritizes fiscal “balance” above all else, in many ways continuing to neglect the real needs of families, as well as required investments in effective and accessible public services, and the protection of our natural environment and resources.

This issue contains two feature articles: 'Self-Regulation: Recipe for Disaster;' and a feature report on the BCGEU 'Choose children' campaign.

BC’s child welfare system is falling apart: Frontline workers can’t always get those who most urgently need help.  They are buried under massive caseloads, severe staffing shortages and a complete lack of resources. The situation is endemic, and putting vulnerable children, youth and families at risk.

The Choose Children report gives voice to the workers on the front lines of B.C.’s child, youth, and family services and draws a comprehensive picture of the systemic failures in the province’s child welfare system.


This issue includes information on municipal elections, social media at work, steward elections and more.
