A 10 year permit to take water was granted for use in the Teedon gravel pit

It’s February 2nd 2021 and it has recently come to my attention that a Gravel Pit has further been given a permit to extract, utilise and move into close proximity of the Tiny Township water table. This water is the freshest water on the planet, so the idea that anyone would want to compromise the water for gravel or money, is hard to understand.

Here is more from Erin Archer a local water protector.

“On January 14th 2021, a 10 year permit to take water was granted for use in the Teedon gravel pit in Tiny Township, Ontario. We are asking you to take action against this.

The Teedon pit seeks to take water from the adjacent aquifer that is thought to have the purest water in the world! It is no surprise that local residents are concerned for their drinking water as approximately 80% of local residents rely on private wells from this aquifer for their drinking water.

Before 2018 when the Teedon pit’s last PTTW expired, studies showed that the removal of the protective layers on the aquifer were disrupted to the quality of the water and lead to both quality and quantity concerns for residents drinking water. You can learn more in this article, or by visiting their website.

Yet again we see our government granting corporate water takers permits to take water at the expense of the wellbeing of residents, the environment and of course, water.

Stand up with Tiny Township and elevate the message of the local council “we are fundamentally opposed to the extraction and washing of aggregate in environmentally sensitive areas” by submitting your comments to the Environmental Registry of Ontario

Let’s revoke this Permit to Take Water immediately!”

In Response

In response I looked around for information and emailed everyone I could about my concerns, my hope is this inspires others to get involved in the conversation and help protect the world’s most precious asset.

Well spoken by Coun. Tony Mintoff as can be found in a recent article by The Star publication on this topic.

“I think we’ve been advised by our staff that the permit addresses the township’s request for additional wells and has a robust monitoring program,” he said. “My problem is that perhaps by the time it identifies the problem, the harm is already done. If we’re going to spend any money, we should spend it to load our gun and prepare ourselves for the appeal, rather than taking on the responsibility of monitoring when somebody else is causing the problem.”


What did I do?

I emailed as many as I could find off hand. Including;


What I said was as followed;

“Hello my name is Joseph McDonald, I am a consultant, philosopher and philanthropist who has every intention of helping people realise the value of clean water.

As mentioned on my website https://cleanwaterinitiative.ca/ for my clean water initiative as supported by Doctor Emoto’s work https://www.masaru-emoto.net/en/. Water feels and is altered by thoughts and emotions in addition to the traditionally understood physics taught to children in school.

Since in Elmvale we have the freshest water on the planet, why would we risk comprising the best most valuable class of the most valuable asset on the planet. I ask for you to help support me in reducing or eliminating any potential contamination to the best water on the planet. This includes from any gravel pit contract extension put in place in the recent past. It’s not worth the risk. 


I will admit I don’t know the industry of gravel extraction, but I am fairly certain it is a lot easier to find another place than to fix a damaged aqua filter.

Thank you,



Love and blessings,

Here is some more valuable reading on the matter.





In Conclusion

The world of environmental protections for nature’s key resources is a wait until it’s to late philosophy, if you understand the nature of water than you should understand the importance of why we need to protect clean water. If you can spend any money, time, energy or interest in helping protect this planets most precious resource, please do! If we sit back and do nothing, we may lose our status as the world’s freshest water on the planet. What could be more valuable than clean fresh water?

Thank you for your time and considerations.

Much love and many blessings as always.



The Need for Clean Water solutions in Canada

dirty water, first nations crisis, concerns, care, fellow citizens, Canada, natures most precious commodity. Shameful federal budget. ,

Upon reading many articles about the crisis and need for clean water in communities all over the country, here is some quotes to truly help illustrate what I have learned.

In an article titled Safe Water for First Nations,

“174 advisories In May 2018, there were 174 drinking water advisories in over 100 First Nations.” from the source


In an article about how students and teachers can take action for clean water in first nations, with a quote from a grandmother.

”  “it feels like a struggle every day of existence.” [60-year-old Mohawk grandmother and traditional medicine keeper Sandra Diabo ] ”

Now when I hear this quote I think two things, first thing, no one should feel like that, especially not a 60 year old grandmother, second thing, I have felt that way in the past too. So I can relate to the suffering and need for change, we need to do better for grandma is what my heart tells me, hopefully your heart feels the same. That article can be found here


Here we have a massive report labelled as Make it Safe, Canada’s Obligation to End the First Nations Water Crisis.


So I don’t know about you, but Canadian’s are Canadians. Just because the first nations have been a victim of genocide, does not mean we can further tolerate the Canadian Governments corrupt and criminal actions towards our fellow Canadians.

So what am I planning to do about it, well, honestly, I don’t know yet. I contacted the council of Canadians encase they wanted to work with me to facilitate a course of action to resolve these challenges.


However after waiting a few days, I am not sure if they have the personal to get back to me or assist.

So I have to assume right now I am among a minority of Canadians with care, concern and the intention to make a difference.

So I have collected a list of well diggers, find the excel file below,

Among other organisations of the people actually able to assure the work that needs to be done, my main focus right now is bringing awareness to the need and my intention to help.

I have more research to do, one bit to see what people can do with man power and limited resources, as I have seen well digging done by hand, and also to discover who is working on this, and would I be better to align with someone else or just go straight at the problem myself.

We are so privileged to have the Elmvale spring just around the corner with the freshest clean water on the planet, other Canadians are not so privileged. So it is our duty to help them find viable long term solutions to their needs as well.

Here you can find a petition to continue resisting any negative impact that may occur by the development of dumps in the area about the Elmvale aquafilter.


Important in this is that I don’t want anyone to rely on anyone else, as much as this is a human right in my mind, everyone also has the right to the opportunity to step up and do more. Finding the balance here is important.

Thank you, and god bless!

Who gets the call, and who gets the nod!

It was noon Nov 15th when I got the text from a dear friend, can you bring over a jug of water?

No Problem, I’d be happy to.

Fast forward a few hours and there I was at the door with 2 large jugs and a easy to use water pump. Even despite being in a transitional living situation, I still had blessed clean water from Elmvale available. It was that easy to make sure the family had clean drinking water.

This is what I am really here to do, I love to help everyone. But not everyone knows what is out there when it comes to kindness, services and the future. I don’t ask for much in return for a hassle free clean drinking water solution. I just ask people continue spreading the good word.

However I find myself at a cross roads on the point of “Not every knows”. Because not everyone knows, I have funding available. Currently we have $315 according to my financial transparency page. However it will take a lot more to bring permanent solutions to larger communities. Like schools, public spaces and native communities. One thing I know is however the fund is to proceed, it will do so transparently. If I make partnerships to raise money, or do it all on my own, the main thing is helping people. But doing this with clarity is also very important. For instance when people donate, what or where is your donation pointed towards. This is important to identify what or where you want your contributions to contribute.

Upon a quick search on Google, a well looks to cost $1,000 to $15,000. So to facilitate water to large communities can be quite pricey.

With reverse osmosis systems, a complete system for a school of 400 with 1 tap can be under a grand. So even a full system for a high school could be only a few grand.

What this means is solutions are possible close to home with only a few major contributing parties.

Things to think about as I look to find communities to work with, to provide clean water for those in need.
