Stop Kinder Morgan

Justin Trudeau is busy breaking promises.

First, he promised Indigenous people that he would develop nation-to-nation relationships and respect the sovereignty of First Nations peoples, including the right to refuse development projects on their land.

Second, he signed the Paris Climate Accord, which committed Canada (and every other signatory country) to reducing their carbon emissions enough to prevent irreversible climate damage.

Signing off on construction of the Kinder Morgan pipeline, which is strongly opposed by Indigenous and non-Indigenous local governments on both sides of the Canadian border, directly undermines both of those goals.

Some brave activists are currently blocking construction while other activists are fighting the pipeline in the courts. HERE is a petition in support of the protesters, as well as a script for calling the Canadian Embassy.
