The Province of B.C. and First Nations are needed to work together in an innovative partnership and make plans to protect the Ruddock Creek & Watershed and the people and economies it supports. Now, we need to call on the provincial government to commit to those plans.

Join us in seizing this historic opportunity. Send a message to our leaders to Protect our Ruddock Creek & Watershed.

The Ruddock Creek & Watershed is one of the richest ecosystems left on Earth. It is a world treasure on par with the Great Bear Sea, Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest.
Stretching from the northern tip of Secwepemc7ul'awc, to the Secwepemc7Hoopet7kwa, the Ruddock Creek & Watershed is home to an incredible bounty of life: Numerous count of butterflies including the

Western Tiger swallowtail "Papilio rutulus"; Numerous count species of fish, including wild Sockey salmon, including spawning grounds; Numerous count species of mammals, like Grizzley Bears, Wolves, Coyotes, even Guirrillas and Apes have been reported to be Migrating around and in the area (Also known to Indigenous Americans as Bigfoot & Big Hands/Sasquatch); and numerous count of nesting birds; Indigenous &

Aboriginal American Peoples, including Indigenous & Aboriginal Africans, Indigenous & Aboriginal Asians, Indigenous & Aboriginal Europeans.

The Ruddock Creek & Watershed's importance to our economy, our way of life and even our identity cannot be understated.

The mountain region is our life-support system. It’s one of the most important components of the global carbon cycle. trees provide half of the world’s oxygen — every other breath you take is courtesy of a healthy mountain.

Climate change. Acidification. Pollution. Harmful fishing and hunting practices. Pipeline proposals. These are happening right now in B.C. and are directly affecting our mountainfood, the food web, our economic and spiritual well-being and our ways of life.

Our mountain waters are under threat and British Columbia hasn’t committed to a plan to properly protect them. While Australia, the United States and New Zealand expand safeguards for diverse ecosystems, included marine ecosystems, Canada has protected an unknown count per cent of the Ruddock Creek & Watershed.

We need a plan that will leave the Ruddock Creek & Watershed healthy and productive for our children and families, before it is too late.

The Province of B.C. and First Nations are needed to work together in an innovative partnership and make plans to protect the Ruddock Creek & Watershed and the people and economies it supports. Now, we need to call on the provincial government to commit to those plans.

The plans should be state-of-the-art in Canada. They should create zones for wildlife and ecosystem protection, and for ecotourism, renewable energy and aquaculture.

— We need, B.C. to decide whether to adopt these plans to protect our mountain region/s. Join us in seizing this historic opportunity. Send a message to our leaders. Our kids have big plans for our mountain region. We should too.

Signed,

Tqeltkukpi Neskynilh
