Chrystia Freeland: Cancel Trans Mountain

The federal government just announced an updated climate plan with $15 billion in new spending. How should we pay for it? By cancelling the Trans Mountain pipeline and oil tanker project.

Two government agencies say this pipeline is fundamentally at odds with Canada’s climate plan. Instead of losing billions building a pipeline we don’t need, we should invest that money in green jobs and pandemic recovery.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland has to authorize a new loan soon to Trans Mountain for construction to continue. She has a chance to save billions of our tax dollars for ambitious climate action.

Falling oil demand has changed the economic playing field, and the person in charge of Canada’s financial health should be able to recognize Trans Mountain doesn’t make sense anymore.

Tell the Finance Minister to make the smart choice: redirect the billions of dollars Canada is set to waste on Trans Mountain to clean energy projects that will build the resilient economy of the future.
