The Canadian oil and gas industry is carelessly putting the Wet'suwet'en people in Northern British Columbia, Canada, at great risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus by continuing the construction of TC Energy's Coastal GasLink pipeline.
As we speak, Coastal GasLink is sending workers and federal police officers onto Wet'suwet'en land without proper consent endangering Indigenous elders, children, community members, and the Coastal GasLink workers themselves. But, like all big infrastructure projects, this pipeline relies on a slew of investors to make it all happen. And, there's still time to stop the pipeline from being financed.
KKR — a US-based private equity firm with an atrocious record of putting profits over people and the environment — is planning to purchase 65% of the Coastal GasLink pipeline with Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) this year, giving TC Energy the $600 million it needs to finance the project.

How you can help
If we mobilize online together right now, we'll be able to stop KKR from investing in the Coastal GasLink Pipeline.
Message KKR's top executives and tell them to drop TCEnergy's Coastal GasLink pipeline from their portfolio right now and halt all construction on Coastal GasLink to protect the Wet'suwet'en community from COVID-19 exposure.
