Many people still don’t know their banks are as bad for the climate as oil companies, so a group of activists in Toronto are organizing rides that stop at bank branches and leaving a little message behind. Here is a first hand account from today’s ride:
Today was a ride to protest bank funding of the fossil fuel industry that was organized by the Climate Pledge Collective and Toronto 350.org, noting that RBC, TD and Scotiabank are among the worst dozen banks worldwide that fund the fossil fuel industry. The group gathered at Christie Pits.
We are given our marching orders: we are to split up into smaller groups and each group would write messages in chalk outside one of the bank branches along Bloor between Christie and Yonge.
Here we are out front of RBC, the #1 fossil bank in Canada.
