In a matter of weeks, the Canadian government will approve or deny the Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline. This decision could put the B.C. coast and our fragile climate at risk.
We’ve heard that the decision is coming soon and that the government is leaning toward approving the pipeline. There’s not a moment to lose.
We can’t let this happen. It’s time to scale up our resistance. Sign the petition to send Trudeau a message: climate leaders don’t build pipelines!
Just last week, the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement came into force. The Trudeau government wants us to believe that we can meet our new climate targets and build new tar sands pipelines. But you and I know that’s not true.
More than eighty-five tribes and First Nations are standing up to tar sands expansion, and we are standing with them.
Time is running out. The decision on Kinder Morgan is due in a few weeks. But together we can turn the tide and stop this devastating project.
