Gold Winner Ecology Action Centre
Silver Winner Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project
Bronze Winner Solidarity HalifaxThe Ecology Action Centre is 42 years old, but the organization remains in the forefront of important environmental activism, most recently urging the newly elected McNeil government to abandon its short-sighted plan to alter funding for Efficiency Nova Scotia. EAC has also taken the lead on pressing for anti-sprawl measures to be put in a revision of the city’s regional plan, and continues its work to protect shorelines. Taking the silver is the Rainbow Action Project, fresh off its successful campaign for funding of sex reassignment surgery. And the bronze goes to newcomers Solidarity Halifax, devoting itself to smashing the capitalist state.
