Trudeau's pipeline nightmare


Trudeau bought the doomed Trans Mountain pipeline with tax payer money -- but refuses to disclose the true cost.

But we deserve to know. And that's why our partners are heading straight to Parliament Hill next week to deliver our massive petition right to Trudeau's doorstep.

So far almost 9,000 SumOfUs members like you have signed this important petition.

Can you help us get to 15,000 so Trudeau gets a strong message that people in Canada want to know how much we're paying for a doomed pipeline?

Thanks for all you do,

Amelia and the team at SumOfUs

Trudeau is hiding the cost of the Trans Mountain pipeline that he wants to build with Canadian tax payer money.

Today, we launched a campaign with a powerful coalition calling for Trudeau to come clean about the true price of this climate-destroying project. Will you join us?

This is a copy of the original version we sent out:

Since the climate-destroying Trans Mountain pipeline was bought by Trudeau, his government has been silent about the spiralling costs of the project and how it plans to get our money back.

The sad reality is that we knew more about Trans Mountain when it was owned by a Texas oil company than we do now that it’s in public hands.

Private investors wouldn’t put up with this silence and neither should we. That's why, today, an indigenous-led group had a press conference to launch our campaign to get Prime Minister Trudeau and Finance Minister Morneau to release the true cost of the Trans Mountain project.

Will you join the campaign to get Trudeau and Morneau to come clean about the true cost of the climate-destroying pipeline?

There’s not a shred of proof that this dead-end project will ever turn a profit, and plenty to suggest that taxpayers could be on the hook for big losses.

That's billions of yours and my money being poured into this greenhouse-gas-generating juggernaut -- money that could be tackling the climate crisis, instead of causing it.

And we need to address climate change now -- we have to cut back 7% of greenhouse gases a year or face a climate catastrophe that will forever change our planet.

Call on Trudeau and Morneau to show us the numbers now.

When SumOfUs members fought the Kinder Morgan pipeline alongside indigenous leaders, Big Oil execs and the Trudeau Liberals had to back down from the project. Your pressure on the ground and online spelled the end of Kinder Morgan. We know that when we unite our voices there is no Big Oil project big enough to stand up to Canadians’ democratic will.

Thanks for all that you do,
