Tell the feds: Stand up to Big Oils


Let's make sure oil companies aren't the only ones our government hears from


Demand a strong emissions cap now!

Dear Paov,

For over a decade, we’ve fought Canada’s plans for oil and gas expansion because the industry’s growing emissions undo any effort people make in their own communities to limit pollution.

Together, we’ve stopped liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, the Northern Gateway and Energy East pipelines and the largest ever tar sands mine. We’re still fighting like hell against the rest — but it’s hard to win this game of whack-a-mole.

Now the federal government is planning to introduce a cap on oil and gas emissions that, if done right, could stop these bad projects before they’re ever proposed. Can you make sure they deliver?


We know fossil fuel lobbyists like the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers have been pushing back hard on this, trying to secure more... subsidies for carbon capture, delay and water down their targets, and even trying to exempt fracked gas exports. Minister of Natural Resources and Energy Jonathan Wilkinson is working hard to reassure the industry this won’t affect their plans for LNG.

He needs to hear from Canadians that it should. Please take a few minutes today to write a letter to Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guillbeault, and your Member of Parliament to demand they introduce a strong emissions cap before the end of the year!


We’re not going to stop working until the fossil fuel industry no longer poses a threat to the planet. While this is not the way we would go about it, a strong emissions cap could help make sure we don’t have to do it the hard way much longer.

For the climate,
