Lake Winnipeg East Beaches UNITE!
Update: Thanks so much to everyone who joined us at this event! We've since been asked to share the advocacy letter templates we had brought with us. Here is the example of a letter you can send to your MLA or to a candidate running in the upcoming provincial election. Here is the example of a letter you can send to your Winnipeg city councillor. Remember: keep it short, personalize your message and ask for a response.
Join us in Grand Marais on July 6 to learn more about the challenges facing Lake Winnipeg and the boreal forest that surrounds it – and what we can do as individuals and communities to protect and preserve these important natural spaces.
