Long-Term Impacts and Public Health Response to the Lac-Mégantic Tragedy (Quebec, Canada)
WHAT: Nestlé's bottled water takings, the privatization of water infrastructure and the pollution of water impact Great Lakes communities and violate Indigenous treaty rights. Residents, Indigenous representatives and water groups came together in Flint, Michigan last September to oppose the commodification and privatization of water, and honor water sovereignty. Join us on March 14 to continue to talk about how Great Lakes peoples can take action to shift water ownership into guardianship and uphold the human right to clean water.
On Wednesday January 31st, approximately 140 people braved the weather to attend the first Introduction to Drawdown hosted by Unify Toronto. If you were there at the event we thank you for making the evening such an enjoyable, and hopeful evening.
This webinar is co-organized by Climate Action Network Canada and Evidence for Democracy (E4D). It will describe the importance of Canadian climate science for Canada and the world, reveal the ongoing crisis of funding to that science, and update the Canadian climate movement on E4D's campaign to restore government support. https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7319584534211842305
