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.
We know that Big Oil will try everything they can to dominate recovery spending. But the health crisis has taught us a valuable lesson - when we act together, we can overcome even the largest of obstacles.
This is urgent. Tell the federal government that you do not want billions and billions of dollars handed over to big polluters that will compromise our environment and accelerate climate change. Instead, demand that they invest in a Green Recovery, capable of shifting Canada towards a stronger, equitable, and more sustainable society.
