Step 2: click on “connect”.
You may be asked to click a button indicating how you know this person, or you might see the option to “add a note.” If the option is there, use this opportunity to send them a message asking them to rule out insuring or funding Trans Mountain.
Step 3: Type in your message.
This will allow for a max. of 300 characters. Once you have finished typing, click on send.
We encourage you to use your own words for your message, but here’s some inspiration for something you could say:
Please rule out financial support for the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline – an extremely controversial fossil fuel project that doesn’t have consent from Indigenous peoples and would be disastrous for the planet in a time of climate crisis. 18 insurers have already done so.
Step 4: Done! Now send messages to as many other contacts as possible!
NOTE Instead of clicking on “connect”, you can also click on “message” the contacts. This will allow for longer messages, but messages can only be sent to max. 5 people per month from each account (depending on your payment plan).
