Can you add your name today to demand Trudeau defund the Trans Mountain pipeline?

Help us send him a message he can't ignore r1

Dear Paov,

We are in a climate emergency and our government can’t seem to move past half measures.

Yesterday, the Trudeau government announced a plan to ban single-use plastics by the end of next year.1 This is a baby step in the right direction. The crisis we’re in demands bold and ambitious action.

The most important thing that Trudeau can do to show he’s actually serious about climate action is defunding the Trans Mountain pipeline. Will you send him a message by signing our Defund TMX petition?

Earlier this week, the Trudeau government survived a confidence vote and dodged a potential election. The Throne Speech that parliament passed earlier this week acknowledges something you and I have known for a long time: people in Canada want decisive action on climate change. And the Liberals’ speech promised to deliver. Now it’s time for us to hold them accountable to the promises they’ve made.

We’ve been blown away by the response to our Defund TMX campaign so far. We know the pipeline doesn’t make economic sense, it most definitely doesn’t make climate sense, and it’s a disaster for Indigenous communities all along the pipeline and tanker... routes.

Sign the petition now to Defund TMX and fund a Green New Deal. Together, we can send a powerful message that Trudeau cannot ignore.

In the middle of a global pandemic, economic recession, and climate emergency, it’s absurd to waste so much money on a pipeline. The government’s already sunk $13 billion of public money into the project and it looks like the cost may have already climbed to $20 billion or more. Let’s stop them before the price of this project climbs up any further.

The movement has been here before. When enough of us raise our voices, we can end climate-wrecking fossil fuel projects that seem to have all the odds on their side. We stopped the Energy East pipeline. We stopped the Teck Frontier mine. Now, let’s stop Trans Mountain.

Paov, will you sign the petition?

In solidarity,

Jennifer
