I know that oil and gas lobbyists have met with your government 1,100+ times since COVID-19 began (that’s around 3X a PER DAY!). I hope this won’t impact the ‘bold climate action’ you promised in last fall’s speech from the throne. Just a friendly reminder that you don’t work for Big Polluters. You work for the people. I expect you to put people and planet first at #LIB2021 and #BuildBackFossilFree >>https://act.gp/3cY0lQv #KeepYourPromises @greenpeace.canada
A team of researchers has just shown that TMX could now lose taxpayers $11 billion. They are recommending that you SCRAP it because it’s no longer profitable. I hope you’re listening. As Canada recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and looks to the future, I expect to see my taxpayer dollars fund green energy infrastructure, jobs protecting and restoring nature and projects that will help First Nations communities thrive. I expect to see a wealth tax on the ultra rich who benefited disproportionately from the pandemic to pay for a #GreenAndJustRecovery. At #LIB2021 this week, I expect you to prioritize all this and more as a plan to #BuildBackFossilFree. I’m watching. #KeepyourPromises https://act.gp/3cY0lQv @greenpeace.canada
You promised to provide all First Nations communities with clean drinking water. But boil water advisories persist. You promised to protect nature by planting 2 billion trees. But they are nowhere to be found and can’t make up for logging old growth forests anyway. You promised a just transition act, but fossil fuel workers are still stuck in a dirty, failing industry. How can you expect Canadians to trust you? #LIB2021 may be your last chance to prove yourself. Justin Trudeau, #KeepYourPromises. You can’t ‘build back better’ unless you #BuildBackFossilFree. We are watching. https://act.gp/3cY0lQv @greenpeace.canada

Comment on Chrystia Freeland‘s last relevant Facebook post.

In the speech from the throne, you promised to #BuildBackBetter for a greener, fairer Canada. I haven’t forgotten. I’m watching to see you #KeepYourPromises following #LIB2021. I want to see a #WealthTax on big polluters and those who have profited off the pandemic to fund a green & just recovery in Canada. It’s time for the ultra-rich to pay their fair share>> https://act.gp/3utLXp2 @greenpeace.canada
Chrystia Freeland, you wrote a book about how growing inequality is tearing our politics – and our country – apart. Well, COVID-19 has worsened inequality as the ultra-rich have used it as an opportunity to get richer. While essential workers and families struggle with job losses, small business closures and disappearing child care, the richest 44 Canadians have gotten $53 billion richer (just between April-October last year alone). Enough is enough. The pandemic profiteers who have exploited this crisis and also fuel the climate crisis with their lavish lifestyles need to pay their fair share of a #GreenAndJustRecovery. At #LIB2021, I expect you to be carefully discussing a #WealthTax and tax fairness laws >> https://act.gp/3utLXp2 You wrote the book. Now let’s see the policies. #KeepYourPromises

Tactic 2: Call the Prime Minister until he answers… Or leave a message and start over!

  1. A little nervous? It’s normal. Take a deep breath and take action. Climate action requires courage and we know you have it in you.
  2. Dial 1 613 992-4211 to reach Justin Trudeau Parliament office and 1 514 277-6020 to reach his Montreal office.
  3. Express calmly and respectfully why it’s urgent for our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take immediate and concrete measures to address the climate emergency.

Here’s a script you can use to inspire your conversation:

I know that the Liberal National Convention is currently taking place and I want my voice heard. Justin Trudeau has been promising bold climate action in the economic recovery from COVID-19, but we have yet to see the policies and the funding to make it meaningful.

At the convention over the next couple of days, I expect my government to put the climate at the heart of the discussions. Please make this an opportunity to show Canadians that you can keep your promises and put people and planet – NOT big polluters – first. I want to see funding for clean energy projects, a just transition for fossil fuel workers and a plan to restore and protect nature that includes Indigenous communities. And I want to see a well-designed Wealth Tax and tax fairness laws that will make the ultra-rich pay their fair share of a green and just recovery.

No more empty promises. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set us on the right path. Please don’t let Canadians down.

Tactic 3: Send an email to the PM
