Justin Trudeau: no public money for big polluters
The day after the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic, polluting industries began a full-court lobbying press.
While we’ve been at home, oil, petrochemical and plastics companies (and their associations) have reported more than 400 meetings with federal officials since the start of the pandemic — that’s an average of about 5 meetings per day … and climbing! And that’s not all. Other sectors with massive environmental footprints — aviation, auto makers, forestry and banking — have had hundreds more meetings.
Industry’s unlimited access and influence on high-ranking politicians could derail the action we need to build back better from COVID-19 with a green and just recovery.
Cabinet ministers need to hear more than one side of the story. Will you add your name to the petition and call on Cabinet members to organize a public consultation this summer on what a green recovery should look like?
Canada’s federal government is already working on its stimulus package to restart the economy. We must act fast to ensure the recovery funding won’t simply line the pockets of Big Polluters – but is instead used for rebuilding a more fair, and truly sustainable society.
Tell Canada’s top political officials to listen to the people, not the polluters.
