This Saturday I’ll be protesting, along with thousands of other people across the country, against the development of new pipelines and the reckless, rapid expansion of the oil sands. Just because our BC premier has sold out in a tentative agreement with Alberta (never saw that coming… Ha!) doesn’t mean that we can’t stop Enbridge and voice our discontent with the oil and gas industry’s subsidized overdevelopment. I hope you’ll join us!
From Black Out Speak Out:
This Saturday, Nov 16, at over 100 events across the country, Canadians are gathering in their communities to help build a united wall of opposition to more pipelines, reckless tar sands expansion, and runaway climate change.
From Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline to Keystone XL, Kinder Morgan, Line 9 and Energy East, the federal government and big oil are working together to triple the size of Canada’s tar sands. To do this they are undermining our democracy and gutting our environmental laws to ram their pipelines through local opposition.
This is a crucial moment. Over the coming weeks and months, our federal government will make decisions about pipelines that would do permanent damage to our communities and push the world toward runaway climate change.
Now, communities from coast to coast to coast are coming together like never before in a growing movement for solutions, before it’s too late.
We’d love for you to be part of this. On November 16th, thousands of Canadians will join together with environmental, First Nations and community groups for the “Defend our Climate, Defend our Communities” national day of action.
Will you join one of 100 events on November 16th? Use this map to find a rally close to you, then be sure to RSVP so we can keep you updated.
There’s a better way. Imagine if people from across Canada came together to build a clean, just, and safe energy economy that we could be proud of.
