Digital Rally: Say No to Coal

Jun 25 2021 - 12:00pm

Across the country, a movement is growing to protect the Rockies and its headwaters from open-pit coal mining. Eight new coal mining projects have been proposed on the Eastern Slopes – and we need to stop them before they start.

The grassroots opposition to this new coal rush in Alberta is working – on June 17, the proposed Grassy Mountain coal project was rejected thanks to pressure from the hard work of people in Alberta and across the country. However, the work to protect the Rockies is not over – there are still 7 coal projects able to move ahead. Read more about Digital Rally: Say No to Coal

AWA, along with many other concerned individuals and organizations, believes that the Grassy Mountain Mine proposal should be denied.
