[quote:Anonymous Coward 31992525:MV8yMTA4NjY2XzM1NTQ1OTcwX0RBMjI0Q0Qz] Yaaay! You don't know how happy I am that this is happening. As soon as I read up on this bill c45 in early Dec.,I knew Harper was selling us out. Canada has the largest amount of fresh water in the world right? Water is set to become a precious commodity, more scarce than oil. I thought, well this is it. No more fooling around. This is an issue worth taking a stand over. And lots of people agree! The movement is growing. I really appreciate that INM was started by women, so you know it will have staying power. They are committed to working outside the official system, so it will truly be grassroots change. [/quote]
The Chiefs of the First Nations in Manitoba invite all Canadians and non-‐ governmental organizations (NGOs) to join First Nations in requesting the immediate repeal of Bills C-‐38 and of C-‐45 as well as the repeal of any existing or proposed legislation that impact waters, fisheries and the environment.
The widespread changes to Canada’s legislative framework brought about by these two “omnibus” bills affects all Canadians, not just First Nations. These bills, which are now law, modify over 160 laws and regulations in numerous areas and weaken the legislative protections hard-‐won by all segments of the Canadian population over the last several decades.
These Bills profoundly scale back the legal protection of the water and of nature leaving almost no protection in many environmental areas. These changes are intended by the Conservative government to open the door for foreign-‐owned corporations to develop the waters, minerals and natural resources within the ancestral lands of First Nations and Canadian territory.
