MPs: put Big Oil on Trial

In less than 24 hours, fossil fuel executives representing Imperial, Cenovus, Enbridge, and Shell will appear before the House of Commons Environment Committee. There, they’ll be made to answer for their failure to rein in climate-wrecking emissions — despite reporting record-breaking profits.

This hearing is an ultra-rare opportunity to put the fossil fuel industry on trial for torching the planet. But the Environment Committee is full of competing interests — and you can bet Conservative members will try to give Big Oil a hall pass.

That’s why we need to lean hard on members of the Environment Committee to ask the tough questions about the fossil fuel industry’s climate record. If our efforts pay off, and Big Oil executives stumble under the pressure, it could give legislators leeway to finally crack down on polluting emissions.

Your MP is on the Environment Committee, will you call them now, asking them to put fossil fuel executives to task with hard-hitting questions at tomorrow’s hearing?

Talking points to include in your message:
  • My name is [introduce yourself], and I am calling as a [Canadian/person living in Canada] who is devastated by what Big Oil is doing to the climate
  • I am calling because you are a member of the Environment Committee that will be hearing testimony from top fossil fuel executives tomorrow, June 6th. 

  • The climate crisis is hitting closer and closer to home for people like me. But the fossil fuel executives responsible for worsening wildfires are facing zero consequences for their unlimited pollution. 

  • I call on you to ask hard-hitting questions at tomorrow’s hearing that expose Big Oil’s destructive track record and make the case for legislators to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for their pollution.

*Note: in some cases, MP voicemails require pressing 1 to finalize sending your message. We suggest you do this in case there is no clear prompt to do so.
