Something HUGE is Happening!
On Monday October 24, at 9am, Canadian youth are converging in Ottawa to tell the world and our leaders that we cannot live on an inhabitable planet. They attest that no pipelines can be built if we want to survive climate catastrophe. The science is there folks, it's just whether you want to listen to it.
Earlier today, ten very well-known figures in the Environmental Sector, composed a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau saying, "In other words, if you approve the Kinder Morgan pipeline this December, you will put Canada on a path to burn ¼ of the world’s remaining carbon budget, a pretty selfish, and frankly un-Canadian move."
Many of you know the fight we all face when standing in opposition of a giant. Their is strength in numbers when we unite as one. We cannot continue going on in this world if we cannot work together.
There must be no new pipeline infrastructure or projects if we want to adhere to the global Paris agreement. What kind of image do you want Canada to have, if it shy's away now? The world looked at Stephen Harper in a very negative way, what will they think of Justin Trudeau when he campaigned on real change, and cannot even uphold that promise?
