Next week, on September 10-14, this body will have its annual conference – and this year there is something special on the table. Local governments will vote on whether to demand that 20 of the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies pay a fair share of climate-related costs in BC communities. This year, BC communities were battered by a series of wildfires, floods and other impacts made worse by climate change. The cost of these disasters is on the rise, and BC taxpayers cannot afford to pay 100% of the amount required to adapt to and recover from climate change impacts. Right now, fossil fuel companies assume that they won’t have to pay a share of these costs –... and this assumption has to end. Please consider sending a letter to your Mayor and Council encouraging them to support https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=6357cee0af75df6e0c808f83d2e1ceb480a4a5d618b7bd72647d5a9f7fd1276b581d8a67382cefec91c221af72a9f2708da3ab1c64b5c4b4 UBCM Resolution B128 - Climate Accountability for Fossil Fuel Companies at this year’s UBCM conference. Your voice really does make a difference: your local government wants to represent what’s important to its constituents at the conference. https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=6357cee0af75df6e5d054bcfbf2019158c8c4fa3cb1d5313a92bbf2e25f7ef8a8a5049db3443a69a1b520c10bb01c1d5663f39e1b34633d5 Write your letter today! Please share this action among your networks. We want local governments to hear loud and clear that BC communities want them to take meaningful climate action by asking fossil fuel companies to pay a fair share of their costs.
