Mon Feb 3, 7 pm – Tar Sands Expansion: The Ticking Carbon Bomb (TO)
"How do we halt fossil fuel projects and fight for Indigenous rights and a Just Transition?
Canada’s current and proposed fossil fuel projects will be catastrophic for Turtle Island and the global climate. They violate Indigenous rights and perpetuate ongoing colonial violence. They prevent the transition to a better, more equitable and caring world.
Learn, discuss and take action to stop the Teck Frontier mine (the largest ever tar sands project, if approved), the Coastal GasLink and Trans Mountain pipelines, the Vista Coal Project, and more. It is imperative that we speak out against these projects before they become a reality."
Keith Stewart, Senior Energy Strategist, Greenpeace Canada

Breakouts: group discussion to solidify actions we can take to oppose fossil fuel projects and support Indigenous frontline efforts.
