The Canadian Wildlife Federation is deeply concerned regarding the recent Navigable Waters Protection Act amendments found in the Budget Implementation Act, 2009, Bill C-10. We urge you to lend your voice by signing the petition that we will be sending to the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, The Honourable John Baird.
Sign, Sealed and Delivered
Thank you for taking the time to sign the petition regarding the Navigable Waters Protection Act amendments.
Thousands of you signed the petition, which was accompanied by a letter to the Honourable John Baird, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. We also had the opportunity to present our concerns over the amendments to the Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources. Recently, the Standing Senate Committee released an encouraging report, along with recommendations that regulations should replace certain Ministerial Orders regarding this issue. CWF will continue to follow this issue to ensure the recommendations are accepted and that the regulations developed provide adequate protection for Canada’s waterways.
