Climate Action Now

Overview

Climate changing pollution and environmental destruction have exacerbated systemic injustices, and states of emergency are becoming commonplace.

Canada remains the largest per capita public financer of fossil fuels, exemplified by the Canadian Government’s 2018 purchase of the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline. Additionally, Canada is criminalizing land defenders who oppose new pipelines and old growth logging, all of which are increasing climate impacts. Friends of Clayoquot Sound continue to oppose the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure, including new tar sands and liquified natural gas (LNG) pipelines and tanker projects.
