Make polluters pay, now

The Editor,

This summer, millions of people across Canada and the planet have faced the dire impacts of climate change: forest fires, flash floods, unbreathable air, and more. This chaos is not natural or inevitable, and it isn’t going to stop unless we change course.

While the country burns, the federal government is giving our money to Big Oil to enable them to continue to torch our planet for profit. The only way out of this crisis is to break from fossil fuels once and for all: stop fossil fuel subsidies, prohibit fossil fuel expansion, and tax fossil fuel profits.

Instead of betting our futures on unproven false solutions, the government must invest in a renewable energy grid that can provide clean, affordable, and resilient power to communities across the country. We can afford this, if we make polluters pay.
