The Trudeau government will decide whether to approve the Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline by the end of 2016. If completed, tanker traffic would increase by seven times the current amount.
The Trudeau government will face it's first real test of their commitment to act on climate change in December, when they will decide whether or not to approve the Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline.
Trudeau's government pledged to take climate action, but this promise requires an immediate and massive shift away from burning fossil fuels. The tar sands are Canada's fastest-growing source of carbon emissions. Their expansion would make it virtually impossible to meet our climate commitments made in Paris.
First Nations communities and thousands of people across the country have already voiced their opposition to the pipeline. And now you have a chance to add your voice for clean energy too!
This project will be the first test of whether the Trudeau government stands with people, science and the planet, or whether he will concede to Big Oil, continue business as usual and put more of our communities at risk.
Stand with us and tell Prime Minister Trudeau that new fossil fuel mega projects like the Kinder Morgan pipeline are the wrong direction for Canada's energy future.
