I did just that by REMOVING MY FIRST LINK
and the stuff in quotes THAT GOES WITH IT!!

Every Lake, Every River

Take action now to protect every lake and every river!

1. Tell the Trudeau government to stand up to Big Oil. Let’s protect every lake and every river! Sign the petition:


2. Participate in public consultations:

3. Support the campaign:


On July 20, a pipeline ruptured and spilled up to 250,000 litres of toxic crude oil into the North Saskatchewan River – poisoning the source of drinking water for more than 50,000 people.

Sadly, this is just the latest example of how lakes and rivers across Canada are increasing at risk. The former Harper government left 99% of waterways unprotected under the Navigable Waters Protection Act and clawed back other freshwater protections.

The good news is, now we have a chance to fix this.

This fall, the Trudeau government is holding public consultations on new freshwater protections. But behind the scenes, Big Oil and mining are already lobbying our government hard to keep Harper’s watered-down laws in place.

So it’s critical that we come together now to send Mr. Trudeau a clear and powerful mandate from the people: It’s time to protect every lake, every river.

Lakes and rivers are under threat from pipeline, mining and other industrial projects being given the green light
under weakened laws brought in by the former Harper government.

The Trudeau government will be holding public consultations to review freshwater protections and environmental legislation. With your help, we can secure a better water future for Canada and Indigenous communities.

Narrated by Maude Barlow, author and national chairperson of the Council of Canadians. Featuring Emma Lui, water campaigner with the Council of Canadians.
