In the June newsletter from the Coalition to Save Lake Winnipeg newsletter:
Fresh water in Canada was promised $100 million/year for 10 years in the Liberal Party election platform. A little over six months later, the federal budget delivered only $19.6 million for a single year.
Last month, Lake Winnipeg Foundation (LWF) released a federal report card on Lake Winnipeg. In our review of the past year’s progress, they assigned a B grade in anticipation of the promised renewal of the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program in Budget 2022, as part of a larger federal Freshwater Action Plan. That grade has been swiftly downgraded to an F with yesterday’s federal budget release.
A healthy and sustainable Lake Winnipeg contributes to the social, environmental and economic well-being of all. The coalition acts as an advocate informing stakeholders and coordinating efforts to protect and maintain positive, sustainable practices for Lake Winnipeg.
