It’s time for Canada to stop making the climate emergency worse by shipping thermal coal overseas.
While a recent announcement from the federal government effectively signals the end of new coal mines in Canada, the fight is far from over.
Canada still exports millions of tonnes of Canadian and American thermal coal through our West Coast ports every year.
Thermal coal is so polluting that Canada itself will stop burning it for electricity by 2030. So why are we continuing to export thermal coal to other parts of the world?
