Because you can’t drink money!

Council of Canadians is joining Earthroots and STORM (Save the Oak Ridges Moraine) Coalition to organize a water rally at Queen’s Park to pressure the government to properly manage, conserve, and protect our water resources.

Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians will be speaking at the rally and we are encouraging everyone to come out during their lunch hour (the rally will be from 12:00-1:00) and show their support for a stronger, more dedicated commitment to water protection.

BRING YOUR WATER! Bring a litre of the water that you and your family drink and present it at Queen’s Park along with your fellow citizens. Let’s send a clear message to those that would harm, take or fail to protect, “OUR WATER OUR LIVES”

-Background-

We are feeling the effects of the global water crisis in Ontario. Loopholes and a lack of regulatory willpower have left even the Oak Ridges Moraine hurting from water shortages. People are mobilizing to protect their water from the developers and Big Industry that have unlimited access to the government and unlimited funds to get what they want.

IT’S ABOUT TO GET WORSE! Under the guise of “modernization,” the McGuinty government is dismantling the very tools that allow communities to protect their water. The government is handing a rubber approval stamp to the industries they are supposed to be regulating and we will have NO WARNING – NO RECOURSE NO RIGHT OF APPEAL NO PROTECTION
