Canada water week generates a flood of support for water

Last week, The WaterWealth Project hosted a number of initiatives for Canada Water Week. We had more than 400 residents from the Fraser Valley fill in our survey and partake in our film showings and Hope celebration event.

Whether it was during post-film discussions, or in conversations about water at the University of the Fraser Valley campus, or over a plate of bannock and stew at the Hope Station, the message was sent loud and clear that people in the Canyon and the Valley care about our home waters!

If you weren't able to make it out or take our survey please take a moment for it now.  We will be using the responses in this survey to help inform a declaration to help generate more support to protect our shared home waters.

Also here are the links to the films Salmon Confidential and Last Call at the Oasis - two compelling films that are essential to understand some of the issues that threaten to drain our water wealth.

We hope you will continue to join us in riding the wave of support for our home waters, and volunteer with us to take to the streets and build a flood of support for water in the lead up to the provincial election.

Our kick off event will be on April 6th at the WaterWealth Office from 1pm - 5pm. We will be offering training on community engagement, canvassing and public narrative.

Hope to see you there!
