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.

Export Development Canada must stop fuelling the climate crisis

With Export Development Canada set to announce its new climate targets any day, Above Ground and over one hundred civil society organizations are calling on Ottawa to follow the example set by the United Kingdom and immediately order EDC to align its business with Canada’s climate obligations.

UN human rights body should consider Canada’s role in fossil fuel industry expansion

Canada's human rights performance is up for review by the UN Human Rights Committee. The committee should ask Canada to explain how it squares its duty to protect the right to life with its policies favouring expanded fossil fuel production in a world wracked by climate change, we argue in a submission with the Center for International Environmental Law.
