Action for Rivers

Grand Riverkeeper Labrador Inc Encourages YOU to TAKE ACTION

Right now the federal government is reviewing environmental laws including Environmental Assessment (EA) law, the Fisheries Act, Navigation Protection Act and the National Energy Board. Many groups are in discussions with government about these laws and are also involved in this public campaign to send a clear message to government that federal environment laws must be stronger.

During the 60-day comment period that runs till August 28th, 2017 a coalition of groups—David Suzuki Foundation, Ecojustice, MiningWatch, Sierra Club BC, West Coast Environmental Law and many others including Grand Riverkeeper Labrador  — are asking their supporters to urge their MPs to adopt environmental laws that protect land, air and water and help Canada meet Paris Agreement commitments.

Here are four recent federal environmental and regulatory reviews:

International Day of Action for Rivers

Excerpt from associated website: www.internationalrivers.org/

Every year, thousands of people around the world lift their voices to celebrate the world’s rivers and those who struggle to protect them. The International Day of Action for Rivers is a day to celebrate victories such as dam removal and river restoration. It is a day to take to the streets, demonstrate and demand improvements in the policies and practices of decision makers. It is a day to educate one another about the threats facing our rivers, and learn about better water and energy solutions. Above all, it is a day to unite – by acting together, we demonstrate that these issues are not merely local, but global in scope.
