Systematic Environmental Degradation

The Government has targeted the environment in its budget package. The Conservatives weakened laws that protect waterways and fisheries by undermining the Navigable Waters Protection Act. The amendments had no place in the budget and should have been debated separately as a change to environmental assessment policy. Also Federal environment Minister Jim Prentice announced that Ottawa would eliminate environmental assessments from90% of the "Building Canada" stimulus plan.Under the cover of job creation the Conservatives are reversing our environmental protection.
We stand to lose many of our steams and rivers to unfetter pollution.
