Today is the 5th Annual #WeAreLakeErie Day

August 25, 2021
There will be many stories shared today about why Lake Erie should be protected!
To support our wetlands, rivers, and lakes, a Conservative Government will:
*Support the completion of the Canadian Wetland Inventory;
*Explore ways to protect wetlands on private lands; and
*Provide funding for watershed protection, including restoring funding for the clean-up of Lake Simcoe and maintaining funding for the Great Lakes in Ontario and Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba.
*Create a powerful incentive for agriculture and forestry sectors to protect the environment and sequester carbon by allowing for greater creation of land-based offset credits.
*Invest an additional $3 billion between now and 2030 in natural climate solutions focused on management of forest, crop and grazing lands and restoration of grasslands, wetlands, and forests.
Take part by sharing your Lake Erie stories and pics!
