Please join the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute and World Beyond War for our upcoming event with Green MP Paul Manly, NDP MP Leah Proud Lakota Gazan and activist Tamara Lorincz to discuss Canada’s $19 billion fighter jet purchase. Don’t miss! #NoNewFighterJets #Demilitarize #Decarbonize.
The Trudeau government is planning to buy 88 new fighter jets for $19 billion but that doesn’t include life-cycle costs. It’s the second most expensive procurement in Canadian history. Canada can’t decarbonize and buy carbon-intensive combat aircraft. Fighter jets are bad for the climate and harm people. We should be building not bombing. We need green jobs not war jobs. Say NO NEW FIGHTER JETS.
TAKE ACTION: Please contact your Member of Parliament and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to tell them that you do NOT want your tax dollars spent to purchase new costly, carbon-intensive fighter jets, call the PM at: 613-992-4211 or email him: firstname.lastname@example.org
