Stop the Teck Tar Sands Mega-Mine!

The Trudeau government is deciding whether it should approve the largest tar sands mine ever proposed. They could decide any day now.

The massive open-pit mine would not only make it impossible for Canada to reach its emissions targets, but it would also wreak irreversible damage to its surrounding environment.

If it is approved, 3,000 hectares of old-growth forest will be cut down, 14,000 hectares of wetlands will be lost forever and one of the last herds of free-roaming wood bison could be pushed into extinction. [1] The mine would produce 260,00 barrels of oil a day and add four mega-tonnes of pollution every year. 

The Liberals promised us meaningful climate action, it’s time for them to live up to their promises. They cannot cave into Kenney’s demands. Many MPs are already speaking out against the devastating consequences of approving this mega-mine. Tell Trudeau and your MP to oppose the tar sands mega-mine.

Pushing through the project would also mean more confrontations with Indigenous communities who oppose the ecological devastation it will bring.

Approving the Teck Frontier mega-mine is our climate red-line. If it is built, Canada can never reach its climate goals and will lose any semblance of being a climate leader. Conservatives know this and that’s why they’re politicians like Jason Kenney are trying to bully the federal government into approving the project.

If the Liberals believe in climate change, they must not approve this mine. Send a message now and ensure that they reject the Teck tar sands mega-mine!
