Canada’s most iconic museum should not be in bed with the largest oil lobby group in the country. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) has undermined climate legislation, rewritten environmental laws and pushed an agenda that violates Indigenous rights. That should never be on display in Canada’s national museum.
The Museum of History needs to stand on the right side of history and end its relationship with Canada’s most notorious Big Oil lobby.
As one of the most well-known and trusted cultural institutions in the country, the Museum of History has a responsibility to refuse dirty money from Big Oil — an industry representing companies including BP, Exxon, Chevron, and Shell. These are companies that are responsible for wrecking the climate, poisoning our water and land, and violating Indigenous rights.
