About the event
In late November, the company TC Energy proceeded with the next stage of its suit against the United States under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) challenging the Biden administration’s decision to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. The company is demanding $15 billion in compensation for their “lost expectation of profits.” This is just one of dozens of similar trade suits designed to challenge and undermine climate policies around the world. The increasing use of such trade attacks is serious threat to climate policy, but we have an opportunity now to eliminate this threat altogether. Please join the Executive Director of the Trade Justice Education Fund for a quick briefing on this topic and easy ways you can help make a difference.
