Campaign Update

The Sue Big Oil campaign builds on West Coast’s earlier Climate Law in our Hands initiative, which sparked a public conversation in BC about holding major global polluters accountable for their role in the climate crisis.

Since the campaign launch in June 2022, thousands of people have signed the Declaration to Sue Big Oil, asking BC local governments to demand accountability from global fossil fuel companies for climate harms facing communities across British Columbia.

Read about other exciting developments below:

  • Vancouver city council passed a motion to set aside up to $1 per resident to support a class action lawsuit against Big Oil. Read more about the motion here
  • Polling data released by the Sue Big Oil campaign found that 69% of British Columbians support their local government working with other local governments to sue the world’s most polluting oil companies for a share of the costs of climate change.
