Water is our most precious resource. It nourishes us, helps grow our food, and keeps our cities and forests clean. British Columbia is endowed with some of the best water resources in the world.
So why, instead of protecting our water, are we letting companies have it for free?
Today, news broke that Nestle, one of the world’s largest food and water companies, has been bottling upwards of 265 million liters of British Columbia water EVERY YEAR…for nothing. That is a small lake each year, gone, sold for corporate profit.
This water belongs to the citizens or people of British Columbia, and is NOT meant to be exploited by a Corporation for profit. Call on the BC Environmental Ministry and Provincial Government to immediately change the law and force Nestle to pay a fair price for the water it sells every year. This can’t stand.
As of August 22, 2013 4:55 p.m. we have 5,412 signatures, help us get to 10,000.
