Ep. 020: Adam Olsen on the post-COVID “green” economy and universal basic income

May 24, 2020

#BCPoliTalk is examining the issues that shape the political landscape of British Columbia.

COVID-19 has given us a chance to re-evaluate our priorities and values. Can we come out of the pandemic with a greener world?

Bill and Daniel sit down with BC Green Party interim leader Adam Olsen to discuss whether we can expect to create a better world - and whether that could involve universal basic income.

That, and so much more.

**Note from our hosts**:

After our Friday interview with interim BC Green Party Leader Adam Olsen, former leader Andrew Weaver put out an explosive Tweet on the weekend suggesting he wanted to defeat the BC NDP government over the Coastal Gaslink LNG pipeline but was outvoted by Olsen and fellow Green MLA Sonia Furstenau, leading to his departure from the BC Green caucus. We wanted to explain why that question was not asked in this interview.

Being the opposition party is always interesting - but the BC Liberals are in a unique situation during COVID-19, with a struggling province that depends on bipartisan cooperation to survive.

So far, all parties have cooperated relatively well. However, we could be entering an election very soon, so will this last? What might the BC Liberals do to win voter support?

That, and so much more.
