Ask your candidates where they stand on oil and gas subsidies

Election season is our chance to push the issues we care about most to the top of the political agenda, and help elect MLAs who will speak up for us – not private corporations or the party line.

Right now, B.C. hands over a billion tax dollars a year to the oil and gas industry – that’s twice as much as we spend fighting climate change, and five times as much as we get back in royalties. We’re paying rich companies to pollute, we’re getting ripped off in the process, and it’s got to stop.

The next B.C. government will guide our province through half of the remaining eight years we have left to avoid the most terrifying impacts of climate change.

Step one for any MLA serious about climate action is to stop taxpayer handouts to fracking and pipeline companies, and invest that money in B.C.’s clean energy revolution.

Email your candidates and ask them to commit to cancelling fossil fuel subsidies if they are elected as your MLA – even if that means standing up to their own party.
