Mining giant Teck Resources Ltd. is trying to build what would be the largest
open-pit tar sands project in history.
The Teck Frontier Mine would destroy large tracts of Alberta’s old-growth boreal
forest, impact at-risk species, and put nearby Indigenous communities at risk of
spills, leaks and other accidents. The emissions generated from the project
would make it nearly impossible to achieve Canada’s climate targets, and makes
it harder to ensure a climate-safe future.
A few key players in the federal government are the only thing standing in its
way. One of these individuals is Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs. Her important position means she will
play a major role in deciding whether or not the project is approved.
Minister Freeland has significant influence - but unlike other leaders, she has managed to escape the public spotlight of
the Teck Frontier Mine. It’s time to hold her accountable, and encourage her to be a climate champion.
Call Minister Freeland’s office to demand that the federal government reject the

health of Canada’s environment, wildlife, and Indigenous Peoples over yet
another tar sands project. Our leaders need to hear from us, and a call can go a long way.
