Add your Name: Demand the true cost of the TransMountain Pipeline

Send a powerful message to Trudeau that the public deserves to know the true cost of the TransMountain Pipeline. r1

There are billions of dollars on the line in the TransMountain Pipeline project, PAOV.

Upwards of $13 billion in public dollars have already been committed to the TransMountain (TMX) pipeline. And Prime Minister Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland are still refusing to release the actual cost of the project — by now, it could be well over $20 billion.

We deserve to know the true cost of this project. After all, it’s our tax dollars that are funding it. Sign the petition now to demand that PM Trudeau and Minister Freeland release the true cost of TMX.

Here's the truth: we are in the midst of a global pandemic and we are on the cusp of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Every single dollar spent on this pipeline is a dollar that could be spent helping Canada build back better with a Green New Deal.

That is why we are bringing thousands of people together around the country to create a people-powered movement strong enough to demand Trudeau and Freeland release the cost of the pipeline.

But we cannot do... it alone. So we are asking you directly:

Can you sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau and Minister Freeland to release the cost of the TransMountain pipeline?

Right now we are in a critical moment. Last Monday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau resigned. Morneau was the architect of the decision to buy the TransMountain pipeline when Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan abandoned it back in 2018. And he was one of the fossil fuel industry’s closest allies on the federal cabinet. For the past few months, he was hiding the pipeline’s ballooning costs.

Within 24 hours of Morneau leaving, Justin Trudeau prorogued parliament and started making big promises to help Canada “build back better” with a “green recovery.” There’s no green recovery with a multi-billion dollar pipeline.

With Morneau out, we have a chance to find out the true cost of TMX and demand a Just Recovery that sets us up to build back better with a Green New Deal.

But if we are going to create a movement strong enough to push Trudeau and Freeland to release the cost of the pipeline, we must come together.

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland to release the true cost of TMX.

If enough of us speak up, we can push Trudeau and Freeland to release the true cost of this pipeline. Thank you for your support.

In solidarity,

Team 350
