Brutal. Just imagine how much good work $10.5 million could do for our natural environment.

Obviously, the 10.5 million bucks was "needed" elsewhere more important than our diminishing wetlands.

Read the link. That's all that you should need to see that it's toast. Trudeau doesn't care about our environment, that's certain. Disgusting.

Oh sorry, I was looking for a news link.

Okay, under why I found this:

In order to ensure that Environment and Climate Change Canada continues to deliver on its priorities in the most efficient way possible, the department recently undertook a review of its Grants and Contributions programs. In 2018-2019, Environment and Climate Change Canada is reallocating some of its funds toward other key departmental priorities, including the recovery of species at risk.

Are there other sources of government funding?

Yes. Other sources of funding are available for conserving and protecting wetlands. We encourage potential applicants to continue with their good work on wetland conservation through the use of other funding sources. You will find a list of potential funding options offered by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

And stamp money!

Stamps!

Further, we will continue to provide the revenue from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp to Wildlife Habitat Canada to implement on the ground wetland conservation projects.

This is why you should take anything you read by GF with a grain of salt. If he honestly cared about the environment or science, we would have seen a thread for every item on this list. Indeed if Trudeau were at the helm for any of these, guaranteed we would have. This poster reaches so far go try to discredit everything this government does while ignoring that many of the “issues” would have been exacerbated by his own government of choice. This poster is a shining example of why those in glass houses should not throw stones.

In spite of how much they love to throw the word around, the hypocrisy that is continually displayed by
the extreme right-wingers on this board is astounding. When it comes to hypocrisy, they own the label.

No no everything is going to be funded with stamp sales. You know, when email dies. :130:

Environment and Climate Change Canada is also providing funding. By the sounds of it, that is where the carbon tax money is going to be funnelled. Now I am not in favour of the carbon tax, not at all. I hope no conservative comes on and accuses me of being in favour of it. I want it gone too. It's a punishing tax on the poor, taking money out and refunding it is stupid.

And I am only postulating that is where the money will go.

I notice that the local governments love wetlands, until a developer wants to build over top of them, or crowd out nature right beside them. Then it's all, 'well, Mother Nature doesn't pay taxes but development does" and BINGO, the application is approved.

Save the Wetlands in school programs but in reality, once those kids graduate they learn about the real World.

And I hate it.

@Gone_Fishin, disapprove of me all you want, but we aren't far apart here. :138:

Left wingers are no less hypocritical, in fact - anyone who has any sort of political leaning is just as much a hypocrite as any other :up:

Conservatives blast cancellation of National Wetland Conservation Fund
ROBERT SOPUCK·FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2018

Ottawa, ON - Today, Robert Sopuck, Member of Parliament for Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa, and the Hon. Ed Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford, blasted the Liberal government for its absurd decision to cancel the National Wetland Conservation Fund (NWCF).

“This decision is absolutely baffling. The program has been extremely successful at restoring degraded and lost wetlands, and at enhancing their ecological function,” said Sopuck. “Wetlands are some of the most productive ecosystems on the planet. By providing habitat and shelter for fish, nesting habitat, or safety for migratory birds, wetlands are one of our most precious resources,” continued Sopuck. “The Liberals’ decision to cancel this program is profoundly foolish, and embarrassing.”

On February 2nd, 1971, the Convention on Wetlands was adopted. It is an international agreement that aims to halt the worldwide loss of wetlands, which are among our most ecologically diverse and valuable environments. Since then, February 2nd has been celebrated as World Wetlands Day.

“For the Liberals to quietly cancel this program, just a day before World Wetlands Day, is an affront to all those individuals and organizations that work so hard on the ground to protect wetlands and improve our environment,” said Sopuck.
“I am deeply disappointed that the Trudeau Government is slashing funding for wetlands,” said Fast. “At a time when Canada’s climate is changing, wetlands measurably improve our air and water quality. Not only are wetlands valuable in rural areas, they also play a vital role for sustainable urban development and disaster mitigation. They provide drinking water, reduce air pollution and protect cities against floods.”

“Canada should be focused on embracing wetlands as a means to sequester carbon, improve wildlife habitat and manage watersheds,” said Sopuck. “This sort of natural infrastructure is one of the best tools available to fight climate change, and for the Liberals to ignore this reality demonstrates just how much they prefer talk over action when it comes to achieving environmental outcomes.”

Between September, 2014 and March 31, 2017, close to $25.5 million in federal funding was expended on 198 NWCF projects. During this same timeframe, over 2,600 hectares of wetlands and associated uplands have been restored and over 340,000 hectares of wetland and associated upland habitat have been enhanced.

We know the electorate did. :D
