      Vancouver, Canada

I wanna see you be BRAVE ....Some people will be living today not wondering if they are making a Difference .
Why A declaration of clean water ?

Mankind has worked hard to master nature -- water specifically. We've bent rivers and even reversed their flow; we've drilled into the deepest aquifers and are still busy emptying them despite the poisons they hold; and we've created technology to even conjure it up from thin air. Yet despite this willful attempt at mastering water, we're finding that it is slipping right through our fingers. Without clean water to drink we will die in as little as two days.

Dirty water is every bit as deadly as no water at all.
What does recognizing clean water as a human right mean for countries?
Maude Barlow, chair of the Council of Canadians, says in her essay Our Right to Water that when water is a human right it creates three obligations for a nation: the obligation to respect, the obligation to protect and the obligation to fulfill.

The obligation to respect means the government can’t take action or make a policy that interferes with its citizens’ right to water. So, for example, no one can be denied water for drinking and sanitation because they cannot afford water fees or taxes.

The obligation to protect means that countries must ensure no one else interferes with the water rights of their citizens. For example, they must not allow private companies or local governments to pollute water supplies or prevent citizens from accessing water.

The obligation to fulfill means that countries must take any additional steps necessary to meet their citizens’ need for water. That could mean, for example, improving or increasing public water systems.Banning fracking practices , Safe guarding our ground water and aquifers.

#WaterYourRights

Why a Ban? Can Regulations Make Fracking Safe?
No. Fracking is inherently unsafe and we cannot rely on regulation to protect communities’ water, air and public health. The industry enjoys exemptions from key federal legislation protecting our air and water, thanks to aggressive lobbying and cozy relationships with our federal and Provincial decision-makers (the exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act is often referred to as the Bill c -45 Loophole, because it was negotiated by the-Conservatives a incentive for foreign trade.  the preservation and enhancement of CANADA'S water environment. numerous global crises are revealing more than ever a sickening corporatocracy that OIL AND GAS , lies, subverts and legislates to guarantee profit, power and privilege for the few at the expense of the people and the Earth.It’s a system that employs continual warfare (pre-emptive, false-flag, illegal and otherwise); the killing of millions of people through these wars, poverty and tyranny of all kinds;
  It is not an exaggeration to say that the lack of access to clean water is the greatest human rights violation in the world. The fact that water is not now an enforceable human right has allowed decision-making over water policy .Canada has blocked even the most modest steps toward international recognition of the right to water and has worked behind the scenes to derail advancement toward a binding instrument.

Natural gas is being touted by the industry and its tail-wagging politicos as clean and cheap, the “magic bullet” for our energy problems. Before we swallow such hype, however, let’s just note that the process is named “fracturing” for a reason — it’s inherently destructive, dirty—and way more costly than the market price of the fuel and our Government admits.

The threats to Canada's Groundwater from development in the Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Migration and Hydraulic Fracturing ARE REAL.

Federal and provincial leadership has not introduced one action to secure water protection or created a water act with a declaration of clean water a human right .

None of us would long tolerate having our access to clean water cut off.

It’s time for us as a nation to recognize the right we take for granted .
The world should start paying attention to a more basic issue: Industrial development and Fracking is an incredibly water-intensive process, and there isn’t that much to go around.

"Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment.

Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world.

Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century."
 The pollution in our water resources are having serious and wide-ranging effects on the environment and human health. The immediate effects of water pollution can be seen in water bodies and the animal and plant life that inhabits them. Pollution poisons and deforms fish and other animals, unbalanced ecosystems and causes a reduction in biodiversity. Ultimately, these effects take their toll on human life. Drinking water sources become contaminated, causing sickness and disease. Pollutants accumulate in food, making it dangerous or inedible. The presence of these toxic substances in our food and water can also can lead to reproductive problems and neurological disorders.

    2. Harper's government is 6 years overdue for endangered species

      Michael Dallaire
      Petition Organizer

      has the Canadian government delayed recovery strategies for endangered species in order to green light big oil development?

      Harper's government is 6 years overdue for proposing recovery plans for 163 of the 192 species deemed "at risk" in Canada, including the humpback whales that reside in coastal BC waters. This is against the law.

      While the government did not contest the evidence, they denied that recovery strategies have been "intentionally delayed in order to facilitate industrial development." Funny, because according to court documents, "the absence of posted recovery strategies deprives the ministers of considerable leverage in dealing with the impact of industrial development on species at risk" and would therefore have a major impact on the approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline.

      A senior government source confirmed Wednesday that the RCMP has contacted the PMO and said it is assisting with the investigation.

      Wright was Harper's chief of staff who resigned after the secret $90,000 payment was revealed. He's not the only one who has left the PMO in recent weeks. Chris Woodcock, one of the people who knew about the cheque according to an affiadavit filed by the RCMP, left his job as director of issues management last week.

      Benjamin Perrin, who worked as a legal adviser in the PMO and is also named in the affidavit, is also gone. He left his job a few months ago and teaches law at the University of British Columbia.

      Still Don't Know What #IdleNoMore Is About? Here's a Cheat-Sheet

      The #IdleNoMore Movement is not a new movement. Instead, it is the latest incarnation of the sustained Indigenous resistance to the rape, pillage and exploitation of this continent and its women that has existed since 1492. For those transfixed on race, you're missing the point.

      National coverage is bringing attention across Canada , joined with other enviroment and Human rights bodies this movement is off and running , I hope the vision of peaceful protest remains the goal . The young get excited and Media would love to see the groups get caught in some scandle , The most important message is for the leaders to remain gathered united , and have realistic expectations and educate that every person is envolved and to consider who is actualy being bothered when the protest picks and chooses locations . I am sure the officials dont mind as much if it actualy pisses off the neighbour and they dont actualy see or hear a word of the movemnet , The movement I hope stays focused on cultural teachings , awarness of facts . The United banner is one every one needs to work on with respect to fellow man and have the ability of demostrating the rich ideas and fairness these groups have set out to do , I fully support all these groups and hope to join in again soon Peace

    21. Web link needs recruiters to assist.
