Time to stop oil and gas expansion

Hi Paov,

For more than ten years the climate movement in Canada has been fighting oil and gas pipelines to rein in the fossil fuel industry. We’ve had some enormous victories and some heartbreaking setbacks.

Now the federal government is planning to cap pollution from the oil and gas sector. Can you help make it as strong as possible?

Write my letter today! Let’s be clear — what they’re proposing is a classic market mechanism riddled with pitfalls. This is not how we would go about limiting oil and gas production. But that’s why we need your help!

Big Oil’s lobbyists are pushing back against this cap hard and working round the clock to include as many loopholes as possible. Only with thousands of Canadians letting our leaders know they’re paying attention will this cap be effective.

We need you to write the minister of environment and climate change and demand the strongest cap on oil and gas emissions he can deliver. Tell him not to listen to the fossil fuel companies banging down his door. Make this start the managed decline of fossil fuels we know is necessary.

This may be our best chance to finally restrain Canada’s worst polluters. Help us make sure the federal government doesn’t blow it. Send a message today. WRITE NOW There’s no doubt the fight will continue. Until Canada has a serious plan to stop selling the world the very fossil fuels heating it beyond recognition, we’ll stay at it. But this emissions cap with all its flaws could help us get there — as long as we can keep the industry’s oily hands off of it.

For the climate,
