Letter to Minister Ng: remedy harm caused by EDC-financed dam in Colombia

Communities devastated by the Hidroituango dam in Colombia continue to seek accountability from the Canadian government, which financed the project through its export bank. In this letter, we ask the trade minister to ensure that the bank makes reparations and no longer supports such damaging projects.

Whatever happened to Canada’s review of non-tax fossil fuel subsidies? A letter to the environment minister

Last year the government launched a review of federal non-tax measures that benefit fossil fuel companies and may qualify as inefficient subsidies. In this letter, we ask when the review will be finalized and whether the full results will be made public.
