Niagara, Ontario – The Saving Thundering Waters Forest group invites everyone to this event: Water Scape — Community discussions on Protecting Water for Future Generations

Tuesday, February 20
6:30 p.m.
Niagara College, Room W216, 135 Taylor Road, Niagara-on-theLake, L0S 1JO

Presented in partnership with Save Thundering Waters Group and Trout Unlimited

WaterScape is a collaborative effort of CELA (the Canadian Environmental Law Association), OEN (the Ontario Environment Network), and OHI, in cooperation with the local partners listed above.

The goals for the community discussions are:

  • · To educate and engage interested individuals and organizations about Ontario’s water protection policies, particularly in response to the government’s current proposal: Protecting Water for Future Generations: Growing the Greenbelt in the Outer Ring; and,
    · To listen to the community, whose observations will inform a joint submission which meeting participants and others will be invited to endorse.

Issues to be addressed at the community discussions include:

  • * Are the increased measures in the Greenbelt adequate to the need to protect water there?
    * Are there other areas of the province where increased protection for water should be applied? and,
    * Is the Province doing enough to protect water?

The event is free, but to ensure the right amount of chairs and coffee we ask you to please register by clicking on the blue bold meeting location below to access Eventbright+.
