At least 500 dead in British Columbia alone in wildfires. Whole towns wiped off the map.

But @JustinTrudeau is surprised that the environment is a defining issue in the Canadian election. 🤯
Since Trudeau came to power, carbon emissions have risen every year. 😡

“He said all the right things. However, the government didn’t follow through” - Grand Chief Stewart Phillip.

(This approach may sound familiar to citizens of the US, UK, Germany and many other countries.)
5% of Canada’s GDP is from oil and gas. Trudeau’s Liberals claim they want to use those revenues to invest in the transition away from fossil fuels.

“That’s like buying a tobacco company and saying we’re going to use the money made to pay for throat cancer” - @charlene_amy

The UN's 'Code Red for Humanity' report from the @IPCC_CH invites each of us to participate in this moment of truth, as individuals, communities, as human beings. Climate change has arrived in BC, and no one is spared.
Over 4 days in July, heat caused the death of hundreds of humans and billions of other organisms; wildfires rage out of control. Fossil fuels must be curbed drastically, starting now. The biosphere won’t negotiate anymore.
"Immediate, rapid, large-scale reductions" means NOW:

#StopTMX, cancel LNG, end fossil fuel subsidies, and protect all #oldgrowth forests and functioning ecosystems.

VICTORY! Thanks to fierce indigenous resistance, TransMountain tar sands pipeline loses lead insurer
@Zurich. All 👀now on @LibertyMutual @ChubbNA &
@LloydsofLondon to dump this climate catastrophe…
Zurich will stop providing coverage for the controversial pipeline when its policy expires August 31, forcing TransMountain to search for a new primary insurer. Says Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, President @UBCIC "@Zurich has done the right thing...Hopefully @LibertyMutual & the
others insuring it do the right thing before the end of August & drop it too. Any company insuring TransMountain is complicit in violations of Indigenous Rights, because the proposed pipeline expansion doesn't have the consent of all impacted First Nations along the route."

#BREAKING a new coalition is forming to demand the federal government release the true costs of the #TransMountain pipeline.

We’re #live at @UBCIC at #StopTMX #cdnpoli #ClimateJustice Image
Eugene Kung from @WCELaw discusses how it is harder to get access to information about the pipeline now that it is federally owned.

How is the Canadian government less transparent than a Texas-based pipeline corporation? #TMX #cdnpoli Image
“There is a good chance this pipeline will never be paid off” and the Canadian taxpayer will be left to deal the costs.

Sounds like a solid economic move in the middle of a #ClimateCrisis, huh? 🙃🤦‍♀️ Image

Dear .@Cathmckenna yesterday I allowed my rage to take over when I saw both you & .@JustinTrudeau tweeting about #GretaThunberg & #climatestrikecanada #ClimateStrike.

Your work & this moment in history deserves more compassionate & thoughtful response, so here it is: THREAD
@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I admire your strength & commitment and as a woman who is attacked & threatened for my work I appreciate what you have been going through.

As a Canadian I also appreciate the coal phase out, the price on pollution & other elements of your climate platform but.../2

@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I knocked on doors in the last elxn to help this govt get elected b/c I was so horrified by the lost decade of climate inaction in Canada under the Harper govt & I believed you when you promised prorep, climate test for pipelines, stronger targets science based policy & UNDRIP/3
