Submission to Parliament: Ending Canada’s Public Finance for Fossil Fuels

Canada is the largest public financier of fossil fuels in the G20, funelling billions of dollars in support every year into an industry that must be wound down to avert severe climate breakdown. In this submission to a parliamentary committee, we call for an immediate, legally binding end to all public financial support for fossil fuels.

Ottawa must end all financing for fossil fuels, ‘abated’ or not

In this op-ed in The Hill Times, we argue that Ottawa must initiate a swift and complete phase-out of all public financial support for fossil fuel development of any kind - with no allowances for technologies, such as carbon capture, that prolong our dependence on fossil fuels at a time when we must be rapidly winding down their use.
