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 is water belongs to the citizens or people of British Columbia, and are 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.
Dear British Columbia Environment Ministry
I was shocked to hear this morning that Nestle has been bottling our precious BC water, and selling it for a profit for free, and this has been going on for year.
Water is our most important resource. Please take steps to ensure that Nestle pays for the water it uses fairly, and that no one in the future exploits our natural resources for corporate profit.
