With a new minority federal government, you and I have an opportunity to help shape public policy. The Council of Canadians and our 150,000 supporters across the country are coming together from coast-to-coast-to-coast to stand up for the issues that matter to you.
One of those issues is water, specifically the water in your community.
Although most municipalities own and operate our drinking water and sewage treatment plants, the infrastructure is deteriorating due to chronic underfunding. This is where the federal government could step in with low-cost public funding for municipalities. Unfortunately, the government continues to side with corporate interests and is pushing public-private partnerships (P3s) that put our water at risk.
That’s where you come in. You can fight back against the privatization of our water at the federal level by letting government know that we are the balance of power. You can count on the Council of Canadians to fight P3s as the people’s balance of power. Let’s show the Trudeau minority government how strong we are, together.
