#4 Sign now: Tell RBC to stop funding climate destruction and respect Indigenous rights

The Royal Bank of Canada is the fifth largest fossil fuel funder in the world and the biggest one in Canada. Since 2016, when the Paris climate agreement was signed, RBC has poured over $262 billion into dangerous fossil fuel projects that threaten the very existence of our planet.

Click here to sign the petition telling RBC to stop funding climate destruction and respect Indigenous rights.

#5 There’s no sugarcoating it: fossil fuel advertising is making us sick.

Just like tobacco companies, fossil fuel companies are failing to inform us about their product’s health and environment hazards, and manipulating us into thinking they’re greener than they are. Their advertising undermines Canada’s climate commitments, and their greenwashing obstructs climate action. Canadians deserve better. We know this, and so should your elected officials.

#8 How to be a Hero for All our Children

This article was written by Lindsey Fielder Cook and was published by the Quaker United Nations Office on April 21, 2021.

How to be a Hero for All our Children: A People’s Climate Toolkit is a guide to personal and political climate action. Gathering climate science from the latest reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), alongside suggested personal actions and questions for politicians, “How to be a Hero” is an accessible resource to share with local communities and as part of educational initiatives.

“How to be a Hero” is offered in two versions. The shorter A6 booklet is designed as a conversation starter or to put through doors, and features colourful graphics to engage new readers and visual learners. The A5 “extended version” offers a simpler layout and features further information and questions for politicians. Both publications offer full bibliographies that link readers to the relevant IPCC reports, offering easy and direct access to the climate science given to their governments.

The publications are accessible online and via a “print at home” version which can be used for campaigning and personal distribution. To request a physical copy of the publication, please follow this link.

You can print on your own below. They are available in English, French, and Spanish.
