#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 m.facebook.com/standearth/ #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
“Since the sale the federal government has gone dark about the pipeline.... and Canadians need to wonder why. Likely the costs have skyrocketed” says Alexandra Woodsworth of @dogwoodbc Image
“The lack of transparency around Trans Mountain should be on the mind of everyone in Canada... where is the transparency and accountability with the Canadian government?”

Kukpi7 Judy Wilson questions the rising costs of #TransMountain Image
“The investments should be in our communities for the quality of life.”

Kukpi7 Judy Wilson talks about the misuse of funds when Indigenous communities need access to basic human rights like clean drinking water. #ClinateJustice Image
“The battle will continue as the months unfold... We have more available to us to challenge the rights end of this project.”

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip confirms that the work to stop #TransMountain is only growing

#StopTMX #ProtectTheInlet Image
“It’s pathetic to witness the public postering of the proponents of this project... all that is, is blustering and postering, and does not represent the uncertainty of this project.” -Grand Chief Stewart Phillip @UBCIC Image

.@RBC has invested more than 9.22 billion dollars in fossil fuels since joining the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ)

Net zero means no new fossil fuel investments. 1/ 🧵
@RBC .@RBC 's 9.22 Billion in fossil fuel investments since Oct 2021 would cover 25% of disaster relief costs in Pakistan, as millions recover from devastating flooding.
Instead of investing in climate devastation & displacement, RBC could support communities impacted by fossil fuels.
@RBC In 2022, RBC has lent and underwrote 7.05 billion dollars in fossil fuels.

This is happening while RBC continues to greenwash and claim that it is committed to climate action.

.@AmyG_Standearth kicks-off grounding us in how @TotalEnergies' EACOP risks harming the lives & livelihoods of millions.

"This is not just a climate issue. This is a climate justice issue." 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
While @TotalEnergies & those attempting to push through EACOP claim it will benefit local communities, a majority of the fossil oil of the world's largest proposed pipeline would be for export.😡

‼️ BC judge denies application to extend injunction at Fairy Creek ‼️

Amazing news for all the forest defenders who continue to stand for old growth and for justice at Ada’itsx @SaveFairyCreek 👏 #FairyCreek #bcpoli cbc.ca/news/canada/br…
In his ruling, Justice Thompson says “methods of enforcement of the court's order have led to serious and substantial infringement of civil liberties, including impairment of the freedom of the press to a marked degree” #FairyCreek
Of forest defenders, the Justice says: “They are respectful, intelligent, and peaceable by nature. They are good citizens in the important sense that they care intensely about the common good” 👏💯 #FairyCreek bccourts.ca/jdb-txt/sc/21/…

Ever heard that Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a climate-friendly fuel? Well, you’ve been sold a lie. LNG, made up of methane, is one of the fastest growing threats to our climate. RT to expose the truth about #LNG. #bcpoli #cdnpoli
Didn't think we'd need to say this, but the responses we're getting on this tweet really prove our point: the fossil fuel industry has done a great job convincing the public that "natural gas" is good. It's not. Read more here: vox.com/energy-and-env…
In B.C., methane emissions amounted to an estimated 8.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2017, according to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. That’s equal to 1,724,724 vehicles on the road for one year. Read more: thenarwhal.ca/climate-change…
