Tell Canada to stop giving government money to fossil fuel companies

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas with a strong effect on climate change, and these leaks have significant health effects on nearby communities. The Canadian government must act now to regulate oil and gas companies so they plug all methane leaks and stop intentionally venting methane into the surrounding environment.
