Email Trudeau: We need a green recovery from COVID-19

Youth protest in climate rally in Vancouver.

We know that Trudeau’s government is actively working on the post-pandemic recovery package – what is likely to be the largest investment of taxpayer money any of us will see in our lifetimes.

This investment could fast track the critical transition to a more fair, sustainable economy and enable us to meet our climate commitments. But if Big Oil gets its way, billions would be earmarked for the fossil fuel industry, lining executives pockets and locking us into an economy of the past.

Our partners just launched a detailed report outlining key principles and criteria for making sure the COVID-19 recovery package puts people and the planet first. Now they’re busy requesting meetings with top politicians to make sure this report gets in the right hands.

If we can simultaneously bring on a wave of public pressure from the Stand.earth online community, politicians will have to take our demands seriously.

Will you send an email to key government ministers today?

Your message will go to: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, The Honourable Catherine McKenna, The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, The Honourable Bill Morneau and The Honourable Seamus O'Regan.
