    Shoalidarity Walk

    Noon, til 2:00 pm.starting at the Manitoba Leg. ending at Stephen Juba Park.

    Since 1919, the water Winnipeggers have enjoyed for generations has come from the territory of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, a community that has been under a boil-water advisory for the last 18 years.

    Since 1919, the water Winnipeggers have enjoyed for generations has come from the territory of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, a community that has been under a boil-water advisory for the last 18 years.

    Shouldn’t the people who help provide Winnipeg’s water get to enjoy it too?

    We think so, which is why we're organizing a Winnipeg Water Walk! We want to draw attention to this century-old injustice, and to raise awareness about "Freedom Road," an all-weather access road that SL40 believes is the solution to its situation.

    To build Freedom Road will cost $30 million. Both the City and the Province of Manitoba support the road project, and have each committed matching funds: the only hold-out is Ottawa, which refuses to invest the final $10 million.

    So join us on September 12th at 12:00 pm to show your 'Shoalidarity'!


    Where It Starts: Behind the Manitoba Legislative Building (at the fountain)

    Where It Ends: Waterfront Drive (Stephen Juba Park)

    What to Wear: Blue -- the colour of water!

    What to Bring: Something that shows how you use Shoal Lake water in your daily life. A sprinkler, a showerhead, a kettle, get creative! We also encourage women -- traditionally the water carriers in many cultures throughout the world -- to carry Shoal Lake water on the walk!

    What Else to Bring: Sunscreen, water to drink and anything else you may need along the walk :) Signs are always encouraged!
