TAKE ACTION: Tell Nestlé: Stop Bottling Ontario's Water Source During Drought Conditions.

Business  (tags: SustainableDevelopment, politics, environment, ethics )

- 1230 days ago -
Nestlé's Chairman and former CEO once infamously declared that "access to water should not be a public right." And now his company is putting into practice its belief that every resource should be commodified and sold off.

Nestlé has won a permit to drain an Ontario aquifer whenever it likes. Meanwhile, the surrounding communities which rely on the aquifer have by-laws to restrict their access to their own water during dry conditions in the summer. This just isn’t right, and Maude Barlow, the Council of Canadians, and Ecojustice are fighting back against Nestlé and the Ontario government office that handed out its permit. It shouldn’t take a legal proceeding to force Nestlé to do the right thing. Let’s tell Nestlé that a community’s access to its own water supply is more important than any company's profits.

As climate change accelerates, drought conditions will intensify. Access to clean water is a human right; no corporation should be stealing water from future generations for its present-day profit.

Nestle should stop bottling Ontario's water source at all times.

What is wrong with the Ontario governmental office to have given Nestle that permit?????

The government is supposed to be representing the interests of its people, not the profits of a private corporation to the detriment of its people.

The Ontario governmental office needs to invalidate that agreement immediately.
