Katherine Sinclair was shocked to learn that Lake Winnipeg was named the most threatened lake of 2013 by Global Nature Fund. She decided to take action and organized the Lake Winnipeg Water Walk. The walkers left from Norway House on July 12 on a 1,032 km trek around Lake Winnipeg. The group stopped in lakeside communities to share their message.
Sinclair says threats to the lake impact all Manitobans: In 10 years the world’s 10th-largest fresh water lake is no longer going to be able to carry life anymore.
We can see this anywhere, at any time, so people should be on the lookout, especially if they are using lake water or other surface water for drinking, and they should always be wary of the algae blooms, said University of Winnipeg professor Eva Pip. The taps were turned off in Toledo, Ohio for more than 400,000 people over fear of algae blooms.
Boiling algae-affected water doesn't make it safe and chlorine makes it worse. Manitoba has had excessive levels of green blue algae. Shoal Lake is monitored carefully but people at cottages should be extra careful.
Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue will be at Farmers Markets!!
There will be home-made dog treats, bandanas and rope toys that you can purchase.
All the proceeds going towards helping our dogs in care!
We will also be bringing a few adoptable dogs.
