BREAKING: Trudeau delays action on boil water advisories

There's always enough money for Big Oil but never enough for First Nations r1

Friends,

I have a question for Justin Trudeau – why can his government always find more money for Big Oil, but never for helping out Indigenous communities?

I’m asking because earlier this morning, news broke that Trudeau is going to miss his deadline for ending boil water advisories in Indigenous communities across Canada.1 This at the same time as his government is spending billions of dollars pushing through the Trans Mountain pipeline without Indigenous consent.

It’s infuriating. But, we can do something about it.

Tell Justin Trudeau and the other party leaders that it’s time to defund Trans Mountain and invest in people and communities instead.

We don’t need another pipeline. In fact, our climate can’t handle another pipeline. But, this pandemic has made it clear that we do need good jobs and healthy communities. Both of these are things that a Green New Deal will deliver.

It’s past time for promises and half measures, we need bold action. We need... to defund the Trans Mountain pipeline and fund a Green New Deal instead that respects Indigenous rights and enshrines justice for everyone.
