Keep Big Oil Out Of Our Schools

Dear Royal Canadian Geographic Society,

End your Energy IQ partnership with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and stop helping tar sands lobbyists get into classrooms.

Why is this important?

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is the largest and loudest pro tar sands lobby group in Canada, and Canadian Geographic is giving them a free pass into classrooms from coast to coast.

The Energy IQ project, funded by CAPP, presents a tar sands industry-spun vision of Canada's energy future without critical information on the environmental, human rights and climate change risks and impacts of planned tar sands expansion in Canada. CAPP has lobbied to reduce and restrict Canadian environmental review processes and regulation. Recently they were shown to be working against climate action by the government of Alberta.

Our schools are no place for Big Oil, and Canadian Geographic is abandoning its responsibility as an educator and publisher by giving CAPP access.

How it will be delivered

In addition to this petition, which will be delivered to the Canadian Geographic head office in Ottawa, ON, students and teachers will be working to block Energy IQ from their classrooms across Canada.
