Have you asked if they'll take a stand against Trans Mountain? ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌

Since I last reached out to you, 84 federal election candidates (and counting!) have signed our pledge committing to fight the Trans Mountain pipeline if elected.

What made them do this? They were flooded with thousands of emails from constituents in their own ridings proving that their position on Trans Mountain could win or lose them votes.

Eighty-four is a great start, but to truly put cancelling this toxic tar sands project back on the political agenda, we need more candidates from all parties to be feeling the heat.

Will you help step up the pressure by emailing candidates in Esquimalt--Saanich--Sooke today?


The Trans Mountain pipeline is already coming to the fore as a key issue for voters in this election. Last week the leader of the NDP, Jagmeet Singh, was questioned by the media about his position on the pipeline, and we know the Liberals and Conservatives will face questions during the upcoming leaders' debates.

There's still time to walk away from this project – and some of its corporate backers are already doing that. Fifteen insurance companies have... now formally refused to provide coverage for Trans Mountain! Moreover, the pipeline is only 30% built, and will still require billions more dollars from taxpayers before it’s complete. But to catalyze the political will that’s needed to stop construction in its tracks, we need an unprecedented number of people to speak out and contact their candidates.

Click here to send a quick email to your candidates now and urge them to take a stand against Trans Mountain. (Trust me, it works. One of my local candidates signed the pledge directly in response to the email that I sent them).

Thank you so much for using your voice,
