It's shocking. And your help is urgently needed.
You may be alarmed to know that our lakes, rivers and even our oceans are facing a major threat -- the gutting of the very law meant to protect them! Our government proposes to strip our beloved waters of strong protections against damage and destruction of fish habitat.
With Bill C-38 becoming law, Canada's lakes will have no clear protection against damage or destruction by industry or other interests. Unless we show how much Canadians love our lakes, government will only hear industry's applause over these drastic changes to one of our oldest laws.
Your support is urgently needed. We must take action now, before it is too late. As Canada's voice for nature, we must respond.
We are calling on our supporters and all Canadians to join us and insist on change. Please make a special gift to Nature Canada. Your gift will go directly to support our campaign for stronger, not weaker environmental laws, and send a message to the government that as Canadians, we expect better protection of our lakes and waterscapes.
And after you've made your gift, join other Canadians in signing our Love My Lakes Declaration.
You and I live in a country with spectacular natural heritage. We are blessed with a globally significant amount of fresh water, and within our borders are one quarter of the entire world's wetlands. These are resources to be cherished and protected, not polluted by ever-expanding industry.
Join Nature Canada and take action to celebrate and protect the lakes we love! Please, give today and declare your love for our lakes!
