Take a stand to #StopTMX this Family Day

Communities on the frontlines of Trans Mountain construction invite you to join the Families for the Future #StopTMX day of action this Family Day!

Whether your favourite local stream or park is threatened by construction, you’re fighting for a healthy climate for your kids and grandkids, or standing in solidarity with Indigenous people defending their rights and title, we all have a reason to take a stand.

There are three ways to join in on Monday, February 15 — and please also keep an eye on the Families for the Future Facebook event for the latest updates!

Take a stand on social media

Join this day of action wherever you find yourself on Family Day!

A family holds a sign saying #StopTMX
  1. Make a sign that says Stop Trans Mountain or #StopTMX. It doesn’t have to be fancy — a piece of paper and markers are all you need!
  2. Get outside and take a selfie with your sign, along with the reason you’re taking a stand against Trans Mountain. It could be a place that’s threatened by oil spills or climate change, your kids, or whatever else you’re fighting for.
  3. Post your selfie to Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #StopTMX and #FamiliesForTheFuture so we can amplify your photos — and consider tagging Justin Trudeau and your local MP!
