Don't Give Up! Town Hall about Together Stopping Trans Mountain

Protect the Planet is helping to present a Town Hall and we need your help with CANVASSING to reach new people and uplift youth voices.We will raise awareness at this Town Hall. The event features Cedar George Parker, other youth speakers, Rueben George of Tsleil-Waututh Sacred Trust, and more.

Why? There is a youth movement rising this summer against Trans Mountain. The youth want to protect orcas, salmon, birds, and the inlet from the threats this pipeline and tanker expansion brings. Their vision has the power to unite people and bring harmony back to the land. This is their vision and their future; they need our support now.

Webinar "TMX Lights the Carbon Bomb" 

Everyone who has worked to fight the construction of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project will be familiar with the Canada Energy Regulator (it was known as the National Energy Board back in the day) and knows it has been co-opted to act in the interests of big oil. But do you know about just how much our federal government has been co-opted as well? Science educator Jennifer Nathan has been following the Energy Regulator reports and parliamentary committee work on the oil and gas emissions cap, the net zero climate accountability act and fossil fuel subsidies. She'll tell a gripping tale of the stark reality of the science of climate crashing up against the Machiavellian tactics used to silence the science and increase oil production in this country for decades to come. If TMX is completed, it lights the carbon bomb that explodes the world past 1.5 degrees C yet our own government keeps that information from us. Come for the information to empower us to stamp out TMX and defuse the bomb.
