Trans Mountain has less than a month to renew its insurance in order to proceed with its controversial tar sands pipeline – and its biggest insurer (Zurich) has just said it’s going to stop backing tar sands projects. If we pile on enough pressure, we could make Trans Mountain uninsurable.
Zurich, a Swiss company, are Trans Mountain’s primary liability insurer for the pipeline. In June, Zurich became one of the world’s first insurance companies to announce it would no longer back dirty tar sands projects like this one. But its executives haven’t ruled out insuring the Trans Mountain project in particular. It’s time to up the pressure.
Sign the petition now to call on Zurich and all Trans Mountain’s insurers to drop this risky project!
