Tuesday, July 5 at 7pm at Lochdale Hall (and online).

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. 

Canvassing Shift Details: Help us by signing up for an advance canvassing shift (or three). We will easily prep you with current info and talking points. You don't need to know lots, plus it's fun!

Sunday June 26, 10:30am - 1:30pm meet at Kensington Mall Starbucks

Webinar "TMX Lights the Carbon Bomb" featuring science educator Jennifer Nathan

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.

We hope you choose to lean into these opportunities. We need to work together to bring about the changes that must come.



Testimonials 

"I have been so happy to be out walking weekly in all weather, in the world of trees and birds, seeing the seasons change. I've been in such good company: all ages, all backgrounds, doing something important. Collecting "intelligence" has been fun, a sort of grown-up cops and robbers! I would never have believed the little green space between the railway and the highway was home to so many trees, plants, berries, birds, mice, voles, rabbits, otters, a bobcat, and a bear. It has kept me sane and motivated during the pandemic, it has expanded my spiritual practice, it has given more meaning to my life, it has made me more familiar with other ecological NGOs, and it has given me a new and vital appreciation of Indigenous Planet Protectors and their worldview." CATHERINE

"I live on Gabriola Island, BC, Canada, and toured the tree sit in August. It was inspiring, so I volunteered for the media team. I was able to stand at my desk at home and help manage the large amount of compelling video from when Trans Mountain and law enforcement moved in. Not having to be at their desks allowed people to be on-site and delay the pipeline for another two weeks. It was, at times, hard but it was satisfying work." LORNE
