Save Canada's Environmental Laws

Send a letter for fish now.

One year ago, in an unprecedented attack on nature and democracy, Canada passed a far-reaching bill that repealed or weakened most of Canada’s foundational environmental laws, including changes that “took the guts” out of the Fisheries Act. But people from every corner of our nation stood up for our lakes, rivers and fish: The outcry and concern was so great that the federal government has never implemented its planned changes to the Fisheries Act to weaken fish habitat protection. All this could change if we don’t speak out today. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has indicated that within weeks existing protections for fish habitat could be repealed and replaced by the new weaker rules. Please send a letter today telling the federal government to maintain strong legal protection for fish and their habitat.
