Blue ribbons are popping up around trees, posts, pillars, and on doors and balconies around the township of Centre Wellington north of Guelph in southwest Ontario.
That blue ribbon shows support for Saveourwater.ca who are opposing a permit to take water by Nestle Waters Canada from a local well.
They are asking the Ontario government not to grant the permit and to put a moratorium on commercial watertaking for bottling from the watershed.
You can show support for your community and its water by tying a Blue Ribbon around a tree, porch post, stair rail, balcony or anywhere on your property to show support for saying no to Nestle and No to a third well in Wellington County taking water from our local aquifer and shipping it away forever!
