Twenty-one Council of Canadians chapters have now signed up to take part in the #StoptheKMbuyout day of action on Monday June 4.
The Council of Canadians Mid-Island, Ottawa, Fredericton, Kent County, Powell River, Comox Valley, Saskatoon, Nelson, London, Montreal, Chilliwack, Prince Albert, Campbell River, South Niagara, Guelph, Inverness County, Peterborough-Kawarthas, Regina, PEI, Saint John and South Shore chapters will take part in rallies on Monday to express opposition to the Trudeau government's multi-billion-dollar purchase of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project.
The Council of Canadians is working with Leadnow, 350, Sierra Club, The Leap and other allies on this day of action.
The call-out for it highlights, "Dozens of First Nations still don’t have clean drinking water. We’re facing a housing crisis. Renewable energy projects are desperate for more funding. But Trudeau thinks there’s enough extra cash lying around to spend $4.5 billion buying a pipeline so risky even Kinder Morgan doesn’t think it’s a good investment? We can't let our tax dollars go to a project that violates Indigenous rights and would threaten our shared climate. The sale won’t be finalized for at least a month, and if there’s a massive backlash from voters, Trudeau could still cancel the buyout."
