e-1454 (Protection of the environment)

Initiated by Sabrina L. Bussière from Saint-Zotique, Quebec

Original language of petition: French

Petition to the House of Commons

  • More than 80% of Canada’s original wetlands have disappeared and global warming is increasing, the importance of protecting wetlands becomes very clear;
  • Wetlands have great ecological value in terms of flood prevention, buffer zones, threatened and vulnerable plant species, and protecting natural biodiversity, undeveloped wetlands must remain intact; and
  • Municipalities have no choice but to embrace ecological trends.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to ensure compliance with the Federal Policy on Wetland Conservation (1996), which aims to improve and preserve the environment so as to prevent increasing natural disasters by designating the wetlands bordering Lake Saint-François as a protected area.
