MPs: hold Bank CEOs to account

Canadian banks have some of the worst climate records of any financial institutions in the world – consistently topping the list of the biggest fossil fuel financiers.

A powerful group of MPs have just called Canada’s biggest bank CEOs to Parliament to explain why their banks insist on bankrolling climate chaos. But we just learned the bankers have rebuffed the invitation, and instead want to send their lobby group.

They’re trying to avoid any further public spotlight on the fact that they’re profiting from climate change. We are witnessing a devastating start to the wildfire season — with smoke blanketing much of the Prairies and communities already under evacuation alert.

It’s time for MPs to flex their muscles and hold these bankers to account. If we can flood the inboxes of key MPs and demonstrate that the public demands sustainable financial practices, we can pressure them to use their powers to force the bank CEOs to attend the hearings.

Will you take one minute to send a message to key MPs, demanding they use their subpoena powers and compel the bank CEOs to attend at this critical time?
