Toronto is about to host the world’s biggest mining convention — PDAC. It’s time to show up in force to oppose PDAC
Bring your friends, colleagues, kids, neighbours, and loved ones. We will have speeches, music, performances, puppets, and food!
It has never been more clear that oil and mining companies dictate government policy, and railroad over Indigenous rights in doing so. As we rise up from coast to coast in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation, we are proving that popular resistance is the only way to disrupt the power of the extractive industry.
Join us to rally in solidarity with every community on Turtle Island and beyond that has found itself staring down the barrel of a gun while opposing Canada’s ongoing colonial project through violent resource extraction.
***What is PDAC?***
On March 1 the world’s largest mining conference will begin in Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. With approximately 25,000 attendees, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention will host many of the world’s most destructive and violent companies together in one place, making deals to sell off the rest of the planet and extract every last bit of oil, gold, uranium, and every other exploitable resource that they can find.
The attendees list doubles as a Rolodex of the world’s worst corporate criminals. Just one company alone–Teck, PDAC’s top sponsor– is trying to push through approval this week for a mega tarsands mine that would single-handedly blow through Canada’s emissions budget and make it impossible to meet our climate targets. PDAC attendees include some of the world’s wealthiest individuals and represent companies committing some of the worst climate and human rights crimes in the world.
