The Council of Canadians Guelph chapter and allies will be calling on Liberal MP Lloyd Longfield to take action to protect lakes and rivers.
Guelph Today reports, "Next week, on Wednesday, Mar. 22, three organizations will come together and take a stand on the issue of water protection in Guelph and across Canada. The event is part of World Water Day. A crowd will gather in the park, 1765 Gordon St. (across the river from The Boathouse) at 4 p.m. Some words will be said at the gathering, a group photograph will be taken, and participants will be asked to sign a message that will be delivered to Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield. The message is a demand for stronger federal water protection measures."
The article adds, "The Council of Canadians, Wellington Water Watchers, and the Guelph/Wellington Coalition for Social Justice are hosting the World Water Day gathering."
The photo will be taken at the confluence of the Speed and Eramosa rivers.
