Digital Rally: Say No to Coal

June 25, 2021 - 12:00pm

Across the country, a movement is growing to protect the Rockies and its headwaters from open-pit coal mining. Eight new coal mining projects have been proposed on the Eastern Slopes – and we need to stop them before they start.

The grassroots opposition to this new coal rush in Alberta is working – on June 17, the proposed Grassy Mountain coal project was rejected thanks to pressure from the hard work of people in Alberta and across the country. However, the work to protect the Rockies is not over – there are still 7 coal projects able to move ahead.

Join us for a digital rally on June 25th to celebrate the end of the Grassy Mountain project, hear from those on the ground about why we must continue the fight against coal, and come together to take action to protect the Rockies and rivers.

We are coming together to build a Canada (and an Alberta) beyond coal to preserve our mountains and water for future generations. We look forward to you joining us for the digital rally and calling on our leaders to make the right decision by saying no to coal mining in the Rockies!
