In Bill’s own words:
“As Donald Trump dismantles decades of progress on climate action and Indigenous rights, it is more important than ever for the rest of the world to keep fossil fuels in the ground. The best way to do that in Canada is by supporting Indigenous-led resistance against Big Oil.
As I see it, pulling together is what it’s really about at this point in the game. First Nations standing up to the fossil fuel industry in Canada are some of the strongest and most dedicated organizers anywhere. And, right now, Coast Salish nations resisting the tar sands are asking for our support. That’s why I’m going to be in Vancouver in two weeks to speak at a fundraiser to support First Nations taking the Kinder Morgan pipeline approval to court.
I hope you can be there. I think your support will really matter:
