TAKE THE PLEDGE
We’re launching a “Take the Pledge” campaign to prepare for escalating actions in the event Trudeau’s cabinet approves the Kinder Morgan pipeline on or before December 19th. People will be able to sign a pledge of resistance and commit to supporting whatever action is necessary to stop the pipeline. During the November 19th event, we will conduct a mass public pledge to demonstrate to cabinet the scale of opposition they are facing if they attempt to move forward with Kinder Morgan. If Trudeau wants Clayoquot Sound 2.0 in the middle of Metro Vancouver – he’ll get it.
