Dear RCE Saskatchewan Colleagues,

Hello again!  Following our RCE Facilitation group meeting on Thursday, October 26, we hope you will join us at the Knotted Thistle (in the Travelodge on South Albert in Regina) for our first RCE Energy Drinks from 5:00 to 7:00 pm!   All are welcome, even if you aren't able to come to the meeting (3:00-4:30, Luther College at the University of Regina Room 207).  We'd love to hear more about what you've been up to and share some of the very energizing stories heard at the RCE Conference of the Americas in Vancouver in September. Hope to see you there!

Dear RCE Saskatchewan Colleagues,

The Saskatchewan Alliance for Water Sustainability (SAWS) has announced a traditional aboriginal pipe ceremony to bring focus on the increasing public concern regarding a proposed Quill Lakes diversion project. As you may be aware, the project would divert water from the Quill Lakes Watershed, a closed watershed basin, into the Qu’Appelle Lakes/River system. The project called, Common Ground Drainage Diversion Project, has been determined by Environment Minister Scott Moe, not to be “development” under the Environmental Assessment Act (!), and therefore not requiring a detailed environmental assessment including a public comment period. Qu’Appelle River Watershed residents and First Nations have expressed concerns about the potential addition of poor quality water with higher salt content being introduced into the Qu'Appelle system (beginning at Last Mountain Lake--the location of the Last Mountain Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary) and potentially affecting many aspects of the environment including fish, wildlife, plants, and the use of water by agricultural producers, communities and First Nations people. A detailed project proposal has not been released to the public.

The attached PDF provides further details about this ceremony taking place at the Treaty Four Governance Centre in Fort Qu'Appelle this Tuesday, November 7th, at 11:00 am. Please make every effort to attend if you are able as we would like an important show of support from the RCE.

Please share this invitation widely.
