Minister Conroy & MLA Sandhu: Do Your Jobs

Defend Vernon's Drinking Watershed Now

BREAKING NEWS: Tolko Industries just backed down from clearcutting in the Greater Vernon community drinking watershed. YOU did this!

This is a HUGE people-powered WIN for the people of Vernon–YOU took a stand & took back local control over your critical drinking water source.

In just 3 days, almost 500 people from Vernon sent letters to MLA Sandhu and Minister Conroy, while thousands of you helped put this on the map by sharing, liking and commenting on the story.

Nobody should have to fight for clean, safe water to drink–watersheds across BC should be managed by the people closest to them, who know them best and depend on them most. But when push came to shove, you really stepped up, Vernon. Bravo. Our hats are off to you, and our little team here at CodeBlue is grateful to have been able to help.

There is more work to be done to secure BC's critical fresh water sources, and if you want to be part of it, please add your voice.
