Our new report reveals that after oil-centric Alberta, BC gives more handouts to fossil fuel companies than any other province. Twice as much in fact, as it spends on its climate change program. This is the reason we’re failing to meet our greenhouse gas reduction target.
We’re in a climate crisis, and on top of that, communities across BC are still reeling from the impacts of COVID-19. Instead of lining the pockets of oil and gas executives, that money should be going to the people who need it.
It’s time to sound the alarm on BC’s bankrolling of corporate polluters.
We’ve included a sample letter below, but your message is more likely to be read and make an impact if you use your own words. Introduce yourself, and highlight why you personally think it’s important to end fossil fuel subsidies in BC. How would you like your tax dollars better spent?
