The Federal 2009 Budget has a few amendments to the Navigable Waters Protection Act (NWPA) contained in it.  I suggest you check out the I Speak for Canadian Rivers site for more information and a petition asking that the changes be moved to the Environmental Protection Act review (Spring 2009).  The concern in the amendments is the power it gives the Minister to skip a review of project impacts on navigation.  Think about more portaging on those canoe/kayak/rafting trips.
