They knew. They profited. They need to pay their fair share.

For decades, oil and gas corporations have known that burning fossil fuels would cause the heat waves, wildfires, drought and flooding that we’re now experiencing in BC.

These multinational companies spent millions to deceive, deny and distract us on their way to billions in profit by preventing action on climate change.
We must force oil and gas corporations to change their business practices and pay their fair share for the harm they’re causing. How do we pay for a safer and healthier future for all British Columbians?

Let's sue Big Oil.

We call on our local governments to:

  • take urgent action to reduce our fossil fuel use and protect us from future heat waves, wildfires, flooding and other climate impacts;

  • set aside at least $1 per person towards a community fund to sue Big Oil;

  • join with other local governments to file a class action lawsuit to recover a fair share of our climate costs;

  • work to build equitable, sustainable systems for transportation, housing and food that put people and the planet before corporate profits; and

  • cooperate with Indigenous peoples in doing so.
