Sue Big Oil – They need to pay their fair share!

Sue Big Oil logo

Now is the time to talk to your City Hall and make sure they do what is right: They need to Sue Big Oil!

For decades, oil and gas corporations have known that burning fossil fuels would cause the heat waves, wildfires, drought and flooding that we’re now experiencing in BC. They are a primary cause for the climate crisis we are living in, and they must be held accountable.

They knew, they profited, they need to pay their fair share.

Sign the Declaration and join the movement to Sue Big Oil!

Do you want to make sure Big Oil pays its fair share of climate costs? Join us in a Sue Big Oil volunteer team. Sue Big Oil teams are forming on Vancouver Island, across the Lower Mainland, and beyond. Contact Dana and Gil to join up with people in your community who want to hold fossil fuel companies accountable for the climate chaos their product has caused.

Join us on Feb 9th for a special event:

Sue Big Oil: A Made-In-BC Climate Campaign

In July 2022, Vancouver city councillors voted 6-5 in support of a motion to set aside about $700,000 — roughly $1 per every Vancouver resident — to fund litigation against Canada’s biggest producers of oil and gas. Join leaders from UBC, West Coast Environmental Law, and Vancouver City Council to find out what this means. With law professor STEPAN WOOD, activist FIONA KOZA, lawyer ANDREW GAGE, PhD student MAVI BHALLA and Vancouver City Councillor ADRIANE CARR. Moderated by filmmaker and geography professor AVI LEWIS.

Presented by the Department of Geography Climate Action Committee, Centre for Law and Environment, West Coast Environmental Law and UBC Sustainability Hub.
