Recently, I spoke with Jack Etkin of Citizen&;s Forum in Victoria, B.C.

As I discussed with Jack, for me, Eco-Socialism means simply that all members of society, without exception, have a fair and reasonable opportunity to achieve their individual potential.  The basic necessities of life are guaranteed to them: housing, education, health care, food security and access to the information they need to exercise fully their political rights, all of which must happen in a framework that preserves the health of our planet.
