PETITION TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS IN PARLIAMENT ASSEMBLED

  

    Whereas:

    

      

        Irresponsible practices by industry and multi-national corporations have led to the destruction and denigration of much of Canada's waterways and watersheds;

        Current laws do not sufficiently protect Canada's waterways and watersheds from such irresponsible practices; and

         Protecting waterways and watersheds also protects Canada's forests, fisheries, land, and air.

      

    

    We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to:

    

      

        Update Canada's water laws to ensure that no industry or corporation takes precedence over the health of Canada's waterways and watersheds, and by extension the health of the country's people, species, and land; and

        Ensure Canada's water laws are updated under the guidance of professionals and specialists in the field of water conservation.
