Canada-EU Deal Threatens Canada's Water

Meat production doesn't take nearly as much water as does fracking; bitumen harvesting or mining but it is a factor nonetheless. Then there is the Ontario Provincial Liberals who think selling fresh water to Nestle's is okay.

Nestle wants to own all water rights and they are darn near the goal. We need something like the UN to intervene or before we realize what has happened water will be the most expensive commodity on the market. Not that it is not expensive now, but think how much Nestle corporation will charge you ever time you turn on a faucet. No corporation should have this right.

I agree with you, Kit! We have to stop this. We need petitions to Nestle and the government of Canada to stop this before it's too late.

Many people do not understand the potentially catastrophic consequences of water privatization. The documentary FLOW (For Love of Water) is available online, please take the time to watch it and you will understand why the Council of Canadians, among others, has been sounding the alarm on this issue for some time. (Maude Barlow is in the documentary) http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/flow-for-love-of-water/

Thanks for posting Theodore

Depends on how it is structure, not certain there is much difference in wasteful government bureaucracies or a company making a profit from that waste. Hell, if they were well run, this wouldn't even be a discussion.
