Fossil Fuel Ads Make Us Sick

Our "Fossil Fuel Ads Make Us Sick" campaign launches today, with an open letter to the federal government signed by over 700,000 health professionals who all agree: it’s time to ban fossil fuel advertising.

As a voice for nurses, we have a responsibility to speak up when we think people’s health is in danger. Air pollution from fossil fuels causes between 15,000 and 34,000 premature deaths in Canada each year.

“Fossil fuels affect those who are least able to protect themselves or have a choice in protecting themselves, including those living in poverty and racialized populations who are most likely to live in areas of increased air pollution related to fossil fuels,”
- Jacqueline Avanthay Strus, CANE President
