In honour of Earth Day - please see this note from Eco Justice Executive Director Devon Page:
Happy Earth Day!
We’ve just delivered more than 5,300 signatures to Parliament, urging our leaders to take a stand for strong drinking water standards and the health of all Canadians. Thanks for helping make this our most successful action ever!
We’ll keep you updated on what happens next. If this bill passes, it could be the single most effective way to ensure that drinking water standards are properly reviewed and updated.
But we also know that improved drinking water standards are just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to ensuring that every Canadian has access to safe, clean water. As my colleague Kaitlyn Mitchell writes, that’s where recognition of our right to a healthy environment — including safe drinking water — comes in.
From the team here at Ecojustice, thanks for standing with us!
Devon Page, executive director
