On May 1, 2024 the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) gave the climate destroying Trans Mountain pipeline expansion (TMX) the final rubber-stamp approval it needed to begin operation. The dirty bitumen extracted from the Alberta tar-sands is not yet running through TMX. We must unite and raise our voices loud and clear:
Trudeau, Cancel the TMX pipeline now!

If TMX is allowed to operate, this will mean triple the amount of bitumen (incredibly toxic oil) running though crucial salmon and wildlife habitats, as well as precious forest and farmland. The additional volume running through the TMX pipeline increases the risks of catastrophic oil spills and escalates the risk for devasting fires at the Sumas and Burnaby Mountain tank farms, especially when we know how many corners we cut in order to save time and money during construction. On top of this, it will increase the number of oil tankers in Burrard inlet by seven times, causing irreparable harm to the Salish Sea life, including the already endangered southern resident Orcas.

The Trudeau Liberal government bought the existing Trans Mountain pipeline and the expansion project in 2018. At that time, this disastrous project had a price tag of $4.5 billion and a completion date of the end of 2019. The final price tag for TMX, which is being funded by taxpayers in Canada, is more then 500% over-budget at $34 billion.

Despite these horrible financial and environmental costs, the Trudeau Liberal government has continued to support this project, trampling all over Indigenous rights as they gave TMX approval after approval. We say, no way!

Stop TMX!
We demand People & Planet Before Pipelines & Profit!
System Change, Not Climate Change!
