Beausoleil First Nation Chief Guy Monague

from Friends of the Waverley Uplands
Calling all WATER Protectors!! Please Stand with us in protecting the World’s Purest Water!
Join the Friends of the Waverley Uplands on Thursday September 13 at the Wyebridge Community Hall – 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Speakers – from 6 to to 6:30 pm – will include Beausoleil First Nation Chief Guy Monague and other allies. At 6:30 pm, members of the Community Liaison Committee will go into a closed meeting with Duffferin Aggregates.
Mike Schreiner, MPP for Guelph and leader of the Green Party of Ontario, and our local MPP Jill Dunlop (Progressive Conservative – Simcoe North), were to have spoken. They had to change their plans after Premier Doug Ford recalled the legislature for today (Wednesday) so he can invoke the notwithstanding clause following a judge’s ruling that his mid-election changes to the Toronto ward system are unconstitutional.
The rally is still going ahead! Let’s talk water!
Outdoor event, so dress for the weather. Bring chairs drums, shakers, smiles, hope and love. WATER IS LIFE! Aquifer over Aggregate!
