#3 Economic Stimulus Challenge For River Advocacy

19 02 2009

The inclusion of the NWPA in Bill C-10 is under the disguise of a way to help stimulate the economy.  We believe that improving the economy at the expense of the environment is an ill conceived stimulus plan.  

The question had been raised earlier as to what the whitewater industry is doing to help this cause.  It is a good question with a simple answer.  If consumers are savvy enough to support engaged businesses then more businesses will become engaged.

We have developed the Economic Stimulus Challenge for both consumers and industry leaders to get involved.  The following companies have pledged to donate 20% of their sales of specific items to support the Canadian Rivers Network fight…..

Companies currently on board!

Level Six offers 20% of online sales to support NWPA

The boys at Level Six have once again come through with a stellar offer.  Level Six will donate 20 % of their online sales to CNR to fight the gutting of the NWPA.  It is really simple. Go to their website, select your product, go to shopping bag.  When the payment screen comes up type NWPA in the line that says company, continue your payment and check out…. Simple!
