Join West Coast Environmental Law staff for the virtual launch of the Sue Big Oil campaign!
Global oil & gas corporations have known for decades that burning fossil fuels would lead to climate change, and the devastating wildfires, heatwaves and flooding we are now seeing across British Columbia. They chose to invest in misinformation and lobbying against climate action so that they could continue to make profits, and they'll keep doing so as long as we let them.
It's time to get these fossil majors to take climate change seriously by making them pay a fair share of the climate damages that BC taxpayers are currently on the hook for.
This hour-long conversation hosted by journalist Avi Lewis, with legal experts, campaigners and climate-impacted people, will cover the basics of this bold campaign and legal strategy, and give you the tools you need to get involved in your community. It's time for change – let's take Big Oil to the courts.
