Sign the petition: Trudeau must reconsider Trans Mountain

So much has changed since the Canadian government bought the Trans Mountain pipeline in 2018.

Updated climate science from international bodies has confirmed that Trans Mountain is incompatible with efforts to limit global warming to 1.5ºC. The impacts of climate change have already started arriving in Canada, with record-breaking heat waves, wildfires, and flooding – causing over 600 deaths in B.C. from climate-related disasters in 2021.

Pipeline construction is also way behind schedule, and Trans Mountain itself has admitted that the cost of construction has climbed to a whopping $26 billion. Recent polling has shown that a majority of people in Canada don’t want the government spending any more money on the project.

One thing that’s stayed the same? The project still does not have consent from Indigenous nations along the pipeline route.

For all these reasons and more, it’s clear that a re-evaluation of the project is urgently needed.

Sign the petition calling on Justin Trudeau and his new cabinet to formally stop construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline and conduct a comprehensive review of the project.

Since the government bought the Trans Mountain pipeline in 2018, there have been significant material changes in the fundamental assumptions used to justify the project. We have updated climate science, new forecasts for reduced oil demand, and are experiencing cascading climate impacts across Canada. As more fossil fuel expansion projects are paused or cancelled all over the world, it’s time for the federal government to accept the new reality and re-evaluate the Trans Mountain pipeline in the current context.

That’s why we are calling on Justin Trudeau and his new cabinet to formally pause construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline and conduct a comprehensive review of the project.
