Climate considerations stopped another pipeline?

Today's the last day to submit your comment for the TransMountain pipeline review. r1

Dear friends,

As you probably heard, we got some good news recently. On Thursday, November 8th, a US Judge ordered TransCanada to cease all construction activities on the Keystone XL pipeline, quashing Donald Trump’s presidential permit for the massive tar sands pipeline due to inadequate considerations for climate change. This is a massive delay and a huge milestone for the movement behind this moment.

For over a decade, Indigenous leaders, farmers and ranchers, and their allies around the world have been fighting to stop this pipeline. Despite every obstacle thrown our way, the movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground has kept this pipeline and many more from being built. Let’s take inspiration from their work in our fight against the TransMountain pipeline.

Tomorrow’s the last day to submit our comments to... the National Energy Board for the TMX review. Click here to send a fax with our one-click tool & call on the NEB to reject the pipeline based on its threat to the climate.

That’s right. Once again, the easiest way to submit comments to the National Energy Board is via 1980s fax technology. Luckily we’ve made it easier for you to do it with just one click.

We can’t build pipelines during a climate crisis. In quashing Trump's approval, the US judge found that Trump illegally ignored “inconvenient” climate change facts to advance his own agenda.1

This is the second time that considering climate impacts has stopped a pipeline it in its tracks. It happened for Energy East. It happened now for Keystone XL. Now let’s make it happen for TransMountain.

Earlier this fall, Canada’s Court of Appeal quashed Trudeau’s approval of the TransMountain pipeline. Despite failing at his promises on climate action and reconciliation, Justin Trudeau purchased the pipeline from Kinder Morgan with billions of taxpayer dollars and ordered a new review of the project.

We know that Canada’s broken pipeline reviews are not protecting Indigenous rights or the climate. The TransMountain pipeline is under review using the same broken Harper-era rules that Trudeau himself campaigned against in the 2015 elections.

We have until November 20th to make sure our voices are heard so click here and add your voice to thousands calling for the NEB to reject this pipeline, once and for all.

In solidarity,

Atiya
