Oil and gas companies like Coastal Gas Link (CGL) are flooding remote northern communities with workers from all over the country — putting Indigenous communities at risk from COVID-19. [1]

Northern communities are already ill-equipped to handle the pandemic because they lack essential healthcare resources. If there’s an outbreak of COVID-19, things could spiral out of control quickly — scores of Indigenous people and workers could get infected within days. 

Shutting down oil and gas construction to prevent an outbreak in remote communities is a vital first step to keep communities and workers safe — but oil and gas companies are desperate to continue construction to protect their profits.

A massive, public petition could convince Prime Minister Trudeau, Premier Horgan and Health Minister Adrian Dix to shut down oil and gas construction during the pandemic. But if even one person gets infected, the situation could deteriorate quickly — so we have to act fast. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Horgan and BC Minister of Health, Adrian Dix:

Shutdown mancamps and stop all construction on Coastal GasLink, Site C, and Trans Mountain now!
