In 2023, the U.S. corporation Ruby River Capital launched a massive $20 billion trade challenge against Quebec’s decision to reject the company’s proposed liquified natural gas (LNG) plant and terminal near the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. The case is the latest of a string of so-called “investor-state dispute settlement” or “ISDS” trade attacks against landmark environmental victories.
In this month’s Trade Justice Power Hour, join us as we explore the implications of ISDS for climate action and how you can participate in the global movement to dismantle the ISDS system once-and-for-all. Our presenters include:
- Stuart Trew of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives on the Ruby River case and the toxic legacy of ISDS;
- Stephanie Camarillo of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch on ISDS system basics and growing progress towards eliminating ISDS in the United States and around the world; and
- Hillary Haden of the Trade Justice Education Fund on how you can help amplify calls to end the ISDS threat for good.
Along with our work towards a Climate Peace Clause, efforts to dismantle ISDS is one of the most highly-requested topics of conversation for the Power Hour. Please join us by RSVPing here for the Zoom login details.
