The NDP strongly opposes the expansion of the TransMountain pipeline.
- It disregards the right of Indigenous peoples to say no to any project affecting their lands, territories or other resources.
- It increases greenhouse gas emissions, making it impossible to meet Canada’s global climate targets.
- It means inevitable bitumen oil spills that put Canada’s environment, coastlines, waterways, and wildlife at risk.
- It threatens thousands of good quality jobs in Canada’s marine and tourism industry.
Instead of spending billions of public dollars on fossil fuel infrastructure and subsidies, Canada should invest in clean, renewable energy sources that create good quality, long lasting jobs for today's workers and the next generation.
Add your name if you think Canada should invest in a clean energy economy instead of spending billions on a pipeline.
