If the answer to any of these questions is YES, join our WaterWealth Declaration Blitz team!
We want to send a message to all of our elected representatives: People in the Fraser Valley want to protect our home waters.
The WaterWealth Project is asking citizens to sign the WaterWealth Declaration to support 100% community control over decisions that impact our local home waters.
What is a WaterWealth Declaration Blitz?
The Declaration Blitzes are WaterWealth declaration-signing extravaganzas. We are knocking on our neighbours' doors, setting up kiosks and hitting our favourite nature spots on sunny days to ask everyone in our community to sign our declaration.
Our story mapping and survey project has shown us that local people believe that our rivers, lakes, and groundwater make this region a special place to call home. But our home waters are facing urgent threats. The proposed Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion, massive gravel mining projects and hydroelectric diversion schemes put all people and living systems within the Fraser Valley & Canyon at risk.
Unless we act now, MAJOR decisions that impact our home waters will be made far away in Victoria or Ottawa under the powerful influence of large corporate lobbies.

Join us for a blitz, or set up your own! We'll offer a briefing session to new volunteers for the first 30 minutes of each "blitz", and we do all our door-knocking work in carefully-selected neighbourhoods in teams. We can also offer childcare but please RSVP with email@example.com in advance.
