Rainbow Plated Pin: OIL & WATER DON’T MIX
I designed this pin in response to the Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and his government DIRECTLY PURCHASING the Trans Mountain Pipeline last year. This multiple-billion-dollar purchase occurred after the one of Canada’s largest energy infrastructure companies voiced their unease at the continued protests/blockades by the public. ⠀
The project was approved the DAY AFTER the Prime Minister and his government DECLARED A CLIMATE EMERGENCY.⠀⠀⠀
The Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion would result in pipelines running through salmon-bearing streams, parks and Indigenous communities before loading ships with toxic diluted bitumen. It would also mean a 7-fold increase in tanker traffic in the Salish Sea.⠀
In response, I’m donating 25% of profits from this pin to Pull Together, a joint effort by Raven Trust and Sierra Club BC. Pull Together is a campaign raising funds to help First Nations lawsuits stop pipeline and tanker projects in British Columbia, including the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion.⠀
PLEASE NOTE!!! Each one is a bit different because of the rainbow coating on the metal - so each pin is unique!
