Petition for the protection of our waterways
December 6th, 2012 - 1:34pm
The Harper government has repeatedly used omnibus bills to pass hundreds of radical changes without consulting those who will suffer the consequences. Detrimental changes to legislation pertaining to the environment and the protection of waters are no exception.
With C-45, only 62 rivers, 97 lakes and 3 oceans will remain protected, where previously all of Canada’s navigable waters were protected. Less than 1% of Canada’s bodies of water will be protected.
New Democrats are working tirelessly to oppose this bill. We will not let the Conservatives destroy the environmental protections we need. Make your voice heard and sign the petition condemning the changes to the Navigable Waters Protection Act contained in C-45.
