Canada’s biggest, most powerful, and increasingly most controversial company is trying to get even bigger. RBC – the leading funder of fossil fuels in the world as of 2022 – is trying to buy HSBC Canada.1,2 If it goes through, this merger would undo the historic climate commitments HSBC has already made to stop funding oil and gas expansion.3

Here’s the catch: RBC’s acquisition can only go through with the government’s approval. And that means we can stop this takeover. The federal government’s competition watchdog, the Competition Bureau, is seeking public comments on the merger until this Thursday, June 1st.4
