Stop the Kinder Morgan buyout - Snap Action - Ottawa (Ottawa Centre)
Monday Jun 4, 11am
107 Catherine Street , Ottawa (Ottawa Centre)Hosted by: Richard Jackman
Join us in this powerful day of action to protest in front of Minister McKenna's office. Depending on how long our action goes on we may be joined by the companion event: Make Some Noise Snap Action at 2pm.
The Trudeau government just announced an outrageous plan to buy the failing Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project from Kinder Morgan -- with $4.5 billion of your tax dollars.
Let that sink in. Dozens of First Nations still don’t have clean drinking water. We’re facing a housing crisis. Renewable energy projects are desperate for more funding. But Trudeau thinks there’s enough extra cash lying around to spend $4.5 billion buying a pipeline so risky even Kinder Morgan doesn’t think it’s a good investment?
We can't let our tax dollars go to a project that violates Indigenous rights and would threaten our shared climate. The sale won’t be finalized for at least a month, and if there’s a massive backlash from voters, Trudeau could still cancel the buyout.
That’s why on Monday, June 4th, people across the country are planning snap actions outside their MP’s offices as part of a National Day of Action to Stop the Kinder Morgan Buyout. If enough people join local rallies, it could be enough to force Trudeau to reconsider this outrageous buyout scheme.
Will you join this emergency action to tell the Catherine McKenna and the Trudeau government to Stop the Kinder Morgan buyout?
