Tar Sands Expansion: The Ticking Carbon Bomb

How do we halt fossil fuel projects and fight for Indigenous rights and a Just Transition? 

Canada’s current and proposed fossil fuel projects will be catastrophic for Turtle Island and the global climate. They violate Indigenous rights and perpetuate ongoing colonial violence. They prevent the transition to a better, more equitable and caring world. 

Learn, discuss and take action to stop the Teck Frontier mine (the largest ever tar sands project, if approved), the Coastal GasLink and Trans Mountain pipelines, the Vista Coal Project, and more. It is imperative that we speak out against these projects before they become a reality.

Date & Time: Monday, February 3, 7-9:30

Place: Friends House, 60 Lowther Avenue

Stand with the Wet'suwet'en

On December 31st, the BC supreme court granted an injunction in favour of Coastal Gaslink (CGL) and against the Wet’suwet’en people who have been peacefully protecting their traditional territories from CGL’s destructive fracked gas pipeline project. The project is intended to transport natural gas to a liquefied natural gas facility on the BC coast. The supreme court ruling criminalizes Anuk ‘nu’at’en (Wet’suwet’en law) and is in direct contradiction to BC’s adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.1 The hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en clans have not given their consent for CGL to enter and work on their territory and now, have rejected the supreme court decision.2

A Rising Movement - Global Climate Strike September 27th

I can come up with a lot of words to describe Friday the 27th, the day of the Global Climate Strike, but like the grounds of Queens Park, they just aren’t big enough. They cannot contain all of the power, excitement and promise of the day.

The official numbers from police are 15,000 for the rally and 20,000 for the march, but calculations from a Fridays for Future tweet, put the number closer to 80,000 and Greenpeace Canada estimates 50,000-100,000. The message of the day was broadcast loud and clear - we are in a climate emergency, our house is on fire and we need swift action from those in power, to douse the fast rising flames.
