Open letter to Liberal Cabinet on recent push to support tar sands pipelines

This morning Prime Minister Trudeau and Liberal Cabinet members received an open letter endorsed by over 40 Canadian organizations representing hundreds of thousands of people, calling on them to reject the pressure to champion tar sands, or oil sands, pipelines.

Most notably, this pressure has come from both Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.

The open letter challenges key myths being used to support the false argument that more pipelines will fix Alberta’s economic woes and emphasizes the very serious risks presented by the projects and the viable alternatives we have.
