Beer Launch Party!
June 2, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
It’s getting warmer outside, and you know what that means: sunshine, new flowers, and best of all – patio season!
This summer, Toronto350 is very excited to announce a partnership with Junction Craft Brewing and the launch of our new Hopposition Ale! Starting in June, portions of proceeds from beer sales will go directly to funding opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline, so drink up for Mother Earth!
Since the approval of the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain Expansion in the fall, indigenous and environmental groups across Canada have been preparing to ensure this pipeline never breaks ground. Construction for the project is set to start in September of this year, and opposition to the project is ramping up, with some already dubbing it “Canada’s Standing Rock.” Join us in supporting those on the frontlines of this struggle, defending our threatened air, land, and water.
As we know, water is life. And also – water is beer! If we poison our precious water, that means no more beer eh. And what would a true Canadian summer be without a cold craft brew in your hand?
Don’t forget to bring a friend! This is a perfect opportunity to get someone new involved in the climate movement and spread the word about rising opposition to pipelines not only in Canada, but across the world! We’re not alone in our fight, so let’s drink –oop – stand in solidarity.
The Trans-Mountain Expansion Project would nearly triple Kinder Morgan’s existing capacity, increase tanker traffic on the Pacific coastline from 5-30 tankers per month, and was done without proper free, prior, and informed consent from First Nations along its route – a direct violation of UNDRIP and Justin Trudeau’s promises of reconciliation and nation-to-nation relationships. A spill from this pipeline is inevitable and would place a great number of people at risk of contaminated drinking water, lost livelihood, and is the equivalent of opening 42 new coal plants – not the best way to achieve Canada’s goals as stated under the Paris Climate Agreement.
What better way to save the Earth than by drinking beer? Join us!
