Thanks for making a call to your NDP MLA to demand that they stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en and stop CGL drilling under the Wedzin Kwa.

With the BC NDP leadership race underway and candidates desperate to win over their progressive base, NDP MLAs will be even more sensitive now to criticisms about their commitments to the environment and Indigenous rights.

If we flood BC NDP MLAs today with calls to #KillTheDrill, we may be able to force key players — like David Eby — in the party to take a stance on the pipeline. A flood of phone calls from concerned people across the country is guaranteed to get noticed.

 


 

Instructions on how to call
It’ll only take a minute, but it will make a big difference. It’s super easy.
  1. Read the talking points below
  2. Enter your information to the right, including your phone number
  3. We’ll call you back, connecting you directly to a BC NDP MLA
  4. Leave a message on the answering machine if you reach voicemail. If you speak to office staff, just ask them to pass on your message to the MLA. Make sure to tell them your name and if you've voted NDP in the past

Talking points to include in your message
  • I am calling because I am horrified by the drilling taking place underneath the Wedzin Kwa (Morice River) to make way for the Coastal Gaslink Pipeline.
  • The Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs are the proper title holders on their unceded territory, and all five Hereditary Chiefs have not given their consent to Coastal GasLink.
  • The fact that the BC NDP government is allowing this project to proceed flies in the face of the party's supposed commitment to climate action and Indigenous sovereignty.
  • As my MLA, I'm asking you to publicly call for immediately halting all construction on CGL. The entire country is paying attention.

Ask them to uphold Wet'suwet'en sovereignty and call for a halt all construction on CGL. Just fill in your details below to make a call. Don’t forget to include your phone number — our system cannot call you back without your number in the appropriate field.
