Council of Canadians Rally for the Protection of our Lakes and Waterways
Saturday, March 21st at 2pm at the Neebing Floodway across from the Intercity Shopping Centre
Due to recent Federal Government legislation, most of our northern lakes and waterways have lost their environmental protection. The Lake Superior Watershed is facing threats from climate change, pollution and toxic spills, over-extraction, privatization and invasive species. Water is life! We’re asking elected officials to stand up for our water. Home made signs are welcome!
