The Long Hall

This is not a particularly radical publication, but it does try to provide a grassroots perspective on economic justice in B.C. This particular issue was produced just before the election of far right Liberals and contained some interesting debate on the NDP vs. Liberals similar to debate about the NDP in Ontario just before the election of Mike Harris. A great deal of effort was focused on encouraging people to vote. Like almost every other progressive publication, there were first hand reports from the Quebec City protests. Overall, the tone is optimistic and liberal with an underlying view that lobbying and petitions are effective tools for social change. (Brian Burch)
