Get ALL written letters in to Council by July 11 and instruct the Town Clerk to include your letter in the Council Agenda package. You can also sign up as a delegation by July 13 to speak to Council.
On July 16, at 7p.m. at Parkwood Gardens Church (501 Whitelaw Rd, Guelph) Council will be voting on a motion to decline the Xinyi application because it does not meet our M1 zoning bylaw. THIS IS OF CRITICAL IMPORTANCE. PLEASE COME TO THE MEETING.
GET concerned invites you to hear renowned water warrior Maude Barlow speak about the threats to potable water we face and how these threats are fundamentally interconnected at local, provincial, national and global levels.
The supply and quality of potable water have reached critical or crisis stages at home and abroad. Maude Barlow will speak about the spreading crisis of water shortages and how we can all contribute to ensuring we protect and conserve our water.
This spring, with the knowledgeable and comprehensive help of Wellington Water Watchers, support of Council of Canadians Guelph chapter members, and active participation of Councillor David Wolk, GETconcerned fought a proposed floating glass plant development in Guelph-Eramosa Township that would have extracted more than 580 million litres of water each year from the aquifer for production use. Our campaign was a success. The Township council upheld its "dry use" bylaw and the company chose not to appeal the decision.
We must, however, remain vigilant and continue working to make sure governments take all required action and recognize water is a fundamental human right.
Come here what Maude has to share with is on September 12.
Please note: The event is free, but donations are welcome.
When: Wednesday, Sept 12 at 7 p.m.
Where: The Italian Canadian Club, 135 Ferguson St, Guelph
