Across the country, a movement is growing to protect the Rockies and its headwaters from open-pit coal mining. Eight new coal mining projects have been proposed on the Eastern Slopes – and we need to stop them before they start.
The grassroots opposition to this new coal rush in Alberta is working.
On June 17, the proposed Grassy Mountain coal project – a massive steel-making coal mine owned by Australia’s wealthiest billionaire – was rejected by a joint federal-provincial review panel.
That was victory was thanks to the tireless activism of people in Alberta and across the country. But the work to protect the Rockies is not over. We can’t stop until every single one of the proposed coal projects have been defeated.
If you missed the digital rally on June 25 to celebrate the end of the Grassy Mountain project, watch below to hear from those on the ground about why we must continue the fight against coal, and come together to take action to protect the Rockies and rivers.
