STOP THE LARGEST TAR SANDS PROJECT IN HISTORY

 


If built, the Teck Frontier Mine would be the largest ever tar sands mine.

This megaproject would impact Indigenous communities, derail Canada’s ability to meet our climate targets, and destroy habitats critical for many at risk species. The federal government has the power to show real climate leadership by stopping the Teck Frontier Mine in its tracks.

Here’s why Canada should stand up to the oil and gas industry, and reject the mine:

  • The 29,000 hectare mine would sit a mere 17km away from an Indigenous settlement and will damage the land, resources and culture of the surrounding communities.  

  • If constructed, the Teck Frontier mine would generate the same amount of emissions as a million passenger cars every year during its 41 year life span- making it nearly impossible to achieve Canada’s climate targets.

  • The environmental assessment found that the project would devastate wetlands, old-growth forests, and at-risk species that depend on these fragile ecosystems - like the last free-roaming herds of Wood Bison, the Whooping Crane, and over one million migratory birds.

Tell the federal government to choose the climate, environment, and Indigenous rights over another hugely destructive tar sands project.
