The demand for oil is declining

Tell federal leaders to defund the Trans Mountain pipeline. r1

Paov,

Latest reports by the International Energy Agency predict that the global demand for oil is rapidly declining. And, that if our governments take climate change seriously, it will keep declining after the pandemic.1

So, why is the federal government still wasting tens of billions of dollars on the Trans Mountain pipeline?

Sign the petition now to tell federal leaders to defund the Trans Mountain pipeline.

We’ve always known that Trans Mountain would be a disaster for the climate. Now, it’s becoming apparent that it doesn’t even make economic sense. An opinion piece published in the CBC today broke it down in the clearest words possible: “building the Trans Mountain Expansion Project is in no one's interest.”2

In the middle of a global pandemic, climate emergency, and economic recession, the last thing the government should be spending billions of public dollars on is a climate-wrecking pipeline.

Thousands of people have already signed the petition but we have an ambitious goal to reach 10,000 signatures before the end of the month.

Add your name now to call on federal party leaders to work together... to defund TMX and fund a Green New Deal instead.

There is mounting public pressure in support of our demands. Over the last couple of weeks, more than 800 people across the country submitted letters to the editor of their local paper making a case for why the federal government should defund TMX. The successful letters have reached hundreds of thousands of people.3 The impact was so big that, yesterday, a pro-oil group published a response trying to discredit these letters.4

It’s clear that our movement is already making waves -- and making the right people angry.

Onwards,

Atiya
