Just in here is the update!

Please share with all!

We have an opportunity here paddlers, please try and convince those with power of pen to be involved.
We waited a long time for a 2nd chance and we have seen the results of "not wanting to be political"
And I am talking about how we got to this point in the NPA.

This involves all paddle sport participants, so if you float, this is about your rights!

If you are unsure how you should approach this then just be specific that you want to see are access rights ensured under any updates.

Keep it short and to the point, (you want to be heard)

Or contact your local clubs and Provincial and National groups to make sure they are involved.
We need an across Canada representation here so it is not just a few "older" paddlers sitting away at their lap tops typing madly away (but we will anyway :) )

Let's get out of the water for a few moments, so we may all enjoy the ability to keep getting on the water easily!

Links are below the quoted letter.

[quote]Good afternoon,

This message is to notify you that Transport Canada has released four (4) supplementary papers on proposed changes to the Navigation Protection Act that can be accessed on the Review of Environmental and Regulatory Processes Canada website.

The supplementary papers focus on the following issues:
1. Context for the Navigation Protection Act Review
2. Restoring Lost Protections
3. Partnering with Indigenous Peoples
4. Open, Accessible, and Transparent Processes

Transport Canada is continuing to seek views over the summer on these supplementary papers, which support the Government of Canada’s Review of Environmental and Regulatory Processes discussion paper, launched on June 29, 2017. The opportunity to comment on this whole of government review is open until August 28, 2017.

Please contact Transport Canada at NPPHQ-PPNAC@tc.gc.ca if you have questions or would like to discuss any of the proposals related to the Navigation Protection Act contained in these supplementary papers or in the government’s discussion paper.

We thank you for your ongoing interest and involvement in these reviews.[/quote]
