NWPA letter deadline is this Monday Feb 23rd

Saturday, 21 February 2009
Incomming letter from Becky Mason (and with some possible good news):

Hi All,
If you can, please take 30 seconds to write the time saving pre-written letter from the Sierra Club Canada website link:


I've heard that our letters have triggered a hearing on the Navigable Waters Protection Act this coming Monday night (February 23rd)! I've been informed that Ecojustice has been invited to present at the hearing. This is incredible news! In a nutshell we are asking that amendments to the Navigable Waters Protection Act (NWPA) that are contained in Part 7 of the budget Implementation Act be removed. The NWPA has inefficiencies but eliminating it in this way is not acceptable.

We need you to write now! It doesn't matter how many other letters you've already written lets make history in letter writing before Monday evening and make a difference.

Please circulate my call-to-action, thanks.

Becky Mason
