Turning the Tide: World Water Day 2022

Join MPP Sandy Shaw and water advocates and water protectors from across the province in rallying together this World Water Day to Turn the Tide on Water protection in Ontario.  Ontario contains about one-fifth of the world's fresh water and it is our responsibility to protect our water for future generations. Despite this incredible bounty of water, access to it is deeply unequal and Ontario’s waterways are getting sicker every year. Meanwhile Ontario continues to hand over permits to extract groundwater for profit, mine below the water table, and pave over wetlands. But there is hope. 

Where our government has failed, communities are winning local campaigns to protect wetlands, clean up degraded ecosystems, and protect water are gaining momentum and forcing important victories as more and more people realize not only is our water at risk, but they can help protect it. Join me on World Water Day, Tuesday March 22nd at 2pm for an exciting announcement as we bring water protectors and advocates from across the province together to Turn the Tide on water protection in Ontario. 

My team will be live-streaming this event and RSVPs will receive a watch link closer to the event. I hope you join us in coming together to take action and protect our water!
