Over the past five years, TC Energy (formally Trans Canada) has tried to build the Coastal GasLink pipeline on Wet'suwet'en land, defiantly ignoring assertions from the hereditary chiefs of their rights and title and their lack of consent for the project.
The Coastal GasLink pipeline threatens Wet’suwet’en land, water, air, and people.
KKR has plans to purchase 65% of the Coastal GasLink pipeline with Alberta Investment Management Corp (AIMCo). It's is a US-based private equity firm with an atrocious record of putting profits over employees, people, and the environment.
If we #ShutDownKKR, we can stop the financing of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline — but we need to mobilize online together right now.
Yesterday people made over 261 calls and sent over 6500 emails expressing their concern to KKR. Today we want to push those numbers even higher.
⚡ Email KKR today by using this easy messaging tool: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/messagekkr

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, TC Energy is still going ahead with Coastal GasLink pipeline construction and sending more workers and federal police officers onto Wet’suwet’en territories, putting communities at even more risk. Billionaire oil and gas CEOs see the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to push through whatever they can when the world is looking the other way.
KKR must be held accountable for ignoring the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs, putting Indigenous land and people at risk, endangering Indigenous women by building man camps along the route, and fueling the climate crisis.

Education is widely seen as a key component to future success not only for the individual children who receive that education, but also for the society to which they belong, as a whole. We use graduation rates and post-secondary degree attainment numbers to help determine the efficacy and accessibility of a system of education. More than simply informing us of how many individuals are meeting educational standards, these numbers give us fundamental information about the overall health of a society.Read more
