Where do Canadians draw the line? Save Our Water is drawing the line at groundwater being extracted cheaply and sold expensively. We are drawing the line at a finite natural resource being pulled from under our feet by the world’s largest food company. We are drawing the line for our kids and their kids. Because what Nestlé does might be legal, but it’s not right.
We hope you’ll sign up for our newsletter. We promise to keep you informed. We also promise not to bother you. Our goal is to get as many people involved as we can.
WATER IS A PUBLIC TRUST. it IS nOT FOR SALE.
The recently enacted municipal veto on new permits for water bottlers in Ontario is excellent news!!!
But there is a threshold to that veto. In Centre Wellington a bottler could still apply to remove 379,000 litres of groundwater every day from the Middlebrook well.
We agree with our municipal Council that Centre Wellington is not a willing host community to ANY new permits for water taken for bottling. Save Our Water still says NO.
9 FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Join Save Our Water and Centre Wellington Mayor Kelly Linton on April 22 for an update on the Middlebrook well and the future of our community's water.
It has been more than two years since our most recent public update and there is much to talk about! This is a great opportunity to hear from the Township, and to find out what we at Save Our Water have been up to. This meeting will also include an update on recent developments in related Provincial legislation, and what we need to do now to continue protecting the Middlebrook well and our community's water.
