Today Mike Schreiner and supporters launched the Protect Our Water — Say No to Dolime campaign.
The provincial government recently approved Dolime's application to amend their water permit. This approval threatens the quality and quantity of our water in Guelph and the City of Guelph is seeking to appeal this decision: City Will Seek to Appeal.
The intent of the Protect Our Water — Say No to Dolime campaign is to raise awareness about this important issue and support the City of Guelph in its bid to appeal. Ways for you to play a part in the Dolime campaign:
The Guelph Greens AGM is coming in June and will feature the election of new Executive. If you have questions about what the Guelph Green Party is, how we function or the descriptions of various positions, please read our constitution available here!
- A Transition Guelph event -
Since his book "Life, Money and Illusion" was fist published in 2006, Mike has been touring the country, introducing the Question of Direction. The program encourages people to think and talk about how we might adapt, now that we touch planetary limits and the expansion of human activity is becoming ever more problematic.
Mike contends that when we collectively acknowledge that our planet has limits and accept responsibility for living within them, we are fully capable of redirecting our efforts and securing well-being for the next seven generations and beyond.
Please bring your ideas and questions for a lively interactive discussion facilitated by Mike.

Return to the office and go out with Mike to canvass (3:30 to 5:00).
The Green Party(s) have to spend money to effectively communicate, run meaningful events and prepare for the next campaign. Our goal, clearly stated, is to be able to run fully funded campaigns in four years, meaning we have to raise $90,000 for both the local Green Party Organizations.
