No more big polluter handouts - Canada needs a Green and Just Recovery!
Last signataires : Angélique - Alexandre - Francine
The federal government is about to give the Canadian economy a multi- billion-dollar kick-start in an effort to recover from the COVID-19 health crisis. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to invest in a Green Recovery - a sustainable stimulus package focused on increasing employment and helping Canada transition to a cleaner and more equitable economy.
But some of Canada’s biggest polluters, like oil, gas and petrochemical companies, are pushing hard for the federal government to funnel recovery spending into their pockets instead. The proof? In the last two months, the oil and gas lobby has had more meetings with government officials than any other industry.
Oil, gas and petrochemical companies are powerful, and they will try everything they can to dominate recovery spending. But the health crisis has taught us a valuable lesson - when we act together, we can overcome even the largest of obstacles.
This is urgent. Tell the federal government that you do not want billions and billions of dollars handed over to big polluters that will compromise our environment and accelerate climate change. Instead, demand that they invest in a Green Recovery, capable of shifting Canada towards a stronger, equitable, and more sustainable society.
Email Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland to ask for a green and just recovery. You are not alone, 4 out of 5 Quebecers want a green and just recovery! This is our best chance to let our government know.
