Join RAVEN and the West Coast Climate Action Network (WE-CAN) for a webinar, “Busting the Fossil Fuel Corridor”
B.C. has unveiled a Climate Road Map that involves a lot of hot air: literally. While 80% of emissions come from the province’s fossil fuel industry, the government’s detailed plan for how to meet reduced emission targets has been postponed — three times. The holdup is occurring in tandem with a rush of permits that will keep the fracking and oil and gas industries pumping for another generation.
Learn more about how RAVEN is supporting Wet’suwet’en and West Moberly First Nations’ resistance in the face of Coastal GasLink and Site C Dam, and find out what’s next for TMX. Join a webinar with Rueben George, and Chiefs Smogelgem and Roland Willson, and moderated by WE-CAN’s Connie LaRochelle, on Wednesday, November 17 at 4pm.
