Stop the Coastal Gaslink Pipeline and its funding by RBC A nationwide day of action will take place on April 1st – Fossil Fools Day -2023 Decolonial Solidarity Moncton The science is clear that we need to stop all fossil fuel expansion immediately and rapidly shift to a green economy. However, Canada’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions continue to increase, and our rate of increase is greater than that of any other G7 nation. Canada’s banks are a major source of funding for fossil fuel development. Among banks, the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is the greatest source of fossil fuel funding in Canada and the fifth greatest source in the world. RBC claims to be focused on sustainability, neglecting to mention its leading role in funding fossil fuel development. It is under investigation for greenwashing. One pipeline being financed by RBC is the Coastal GasLink (CGL) pipeline. This pipeline is being forced through unceded Wet’suwet’en territory even though the hereditary chiefs have not given their “free, prior and informed consent", and are instead strongly opposed to this development. A nationwide day of action will occur on April 1 – Fossil Fools Day. Please join us at the RBC Branch at 719 Mountain Road on April 1 at noon. Bring your banners, posters and noise-makers. Bring snacks, if you'd like. Bring poetry. Bring you. Come together for social connection, music listening, and hearing friends speak. Fliers attached:
