Breaking: Another rubber stamp for the TransMountain pipeline

The National Energy Board just recommended building the TransMountain pipeline r1

Friends,

This morning, the National Energy Board -- an institution we both know is broken -- once again renewed its support for the TransMountain pipeline.

This isn’t surprising, but frankly, I’m sick of our government and institutions saying they are acting in our best interest, but being so clearly in the pocket of Big Oil. That’s why, with an election on the horizon this fall, I’m excited to move our fight beyond pipelines and towards a massive re-orientation of our economy and society. I’m ready to build power for a Green New Deal for Canada. Are you?

A Green New Deal for Canada means implementing transformative climate policies that transition us off fossil fuels in line with science and justice by making massive investments in renewable energy and public transportation,... tackling inequality and guaranteeing good jobs for workers all across Canada.

It means changing the rules of the game so that dangerous, unnecessary pipeline projects like TransMountain are stopped outright. It means putting millions of people to work building a 100% renewable energy economy that works for everyone and enshrines Indigenous rights into law.

What do you think? Are you ready for the bold visionary promise of a Green New Deal for Canada? Raise your hand to be part of making this happen.

I won’t lie. This isn’t going to be easy. But the fight to stop TransMountain hasn’t been either. Last March, I was arrested on Burnaby Mountain protesting this project. In the months that followed, Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan abandoned the project altogether. This was a huge, victorious moment. Then, Justin Trudeau stepped in to buy the pipeline.

Since then, I’ve been reflecting on what our movement can do to destroy the greasy myth that tar sands expansion is somehow in the best interest for this country. We need to show mass public support for a completely different kind of direction.

I know that our movement has the commitment, the conviction and the energy for something as big and game-changing as the Green New Deal. Join in, and together we can make this bold plan to tackle the climate crisis at scale a reality.

In respect & peace,

Clayton Thomas Müller
