Send the Big Banks a Message

Canada's big 5 banks are mortgaging the future of our kids.

Since the Paris Agreement they've poured more than $700 billion into fossil fuels!

They all talk about going green, but NONE of them has moved to reduce their fossil fuel funding. They're profiting from climate chaos, and we need to call them on it.

As a first step, you can send this quick note to the CEOs of Canada's big banks. If enough of us let them know we'll take our business elsewhere, they'll realize they need to change.

I'm shocked that each of your banks continues to pour billions into fossil fuels while the climate crisis worsens.

As a parent, I'm not impressed by the green rhetoric in your annual reports. I need to see my bank getting out of fossil fuels right away, for the sake of my kids' future.

I pledge to not open an account for my kids at any of of the big 5 Canadian banks as long as your current track record continues.

Furthermore, as a bank customer in my own right, I pledge to examine my own options for switching to a competitor like a credit union, since I don't want to do business with any company that does not have my kids' future at heart.

Yours sincerely,
