ACTION-SIGN THE PETITION: Stop all Construction on Coastal GasLink, Site C and Trans Mountain: risk of COVID 19
Petition targets: JUSTIN TRUDEAU, PRIME MINISTER, JOHN HORGAN, PREMIER OF B.C., ADRIAN DIX, MINISTER OF HEALTH, AND DR. BONNIE HENRY
“While people are warned to remain at home and take precautions due to COVID 19, the oil and gas industry is continuing work along pipeline routes, and industry is pushing forward with mega-projects across Canada. Workers on these projects are living in man camps by the hundreds in tight quarters, sharing meals and housing, and are unable to quarantine, increasing the risk posed to both communities and workers. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected at least 590,000 people and claimed tens of thousands of lives — and yet politicians and fossil fuel CEOs are continuing to put thousands of workers, and people in the northern and rural communities they are working in, at severe risk for oil and gas profits.
We say no more. This is atrocious. Canada needs to respect Indigenous health. Tell Justin Trudeau, Adrian Dix and John Horgan to stop all construction on Coastal GasLink, Site C, and Trans Mountain now!”
