No Bailouts for Kinder Morgan! #NotWithMyMoney (April 20 Hamilton Ontario Canada)

  • King Street West at MacNab Hamilton, Ontario Canada (map)

On April 20th, please join the Hamilton 350 Committee and other organizations to tell governments and banks: #NotWithMyMoney! We do not want our money -- our taxes, our savings accounts, our mortgage payments -- going to fund the Kinder Morgan tarsands pipeline. We want to let governments and banks know that we oppose any pipeline bailouts of any kind, and that they must begin to act in ways that truly respect Indigenous rights and reflect the urgent demands placed on all of us by climate change.

The picket will be happening at 3pm outside the downtown Hamilton branch of TD Canada Trust -- it's part of Jackson Square, and faces the street on King Street West at MacNab. We chose the TD location because it emphasizes that Canadian banks, and especially TD, are already the major funders of this pipeline and others, and of the tar sands themselves. Without funding from TD and other funding like it, the Kinder Morgan pipeline could not be built.

After the picket, we encourage you to attend a community town hall on trade justice issues organized by Unifor and the Council of Canadians that is happening nearby -- you can hear Maude Barlow starting at 5:30 pm at the Sheraton Hotel.
