The Council of Canadians Sudbury chapter held a public forum to promote their city's water and wastewater systems and to challenge bottled water.
Chapter activist Terri MacKinnon tells us, "On World Water Day the Sudbury Chapter hosted 40 people for an animated evening discussing the Sudbury City water and wastewater and the bottled water industry."
MacKinnon notes, "After former chapter chair Andre Clement roused the audience by speaking about the Council of Canadians and the activities of the local chapter, Glenn Murray, the chief organizer of the event, presented a short film called The Story of Bottled Water. This 8-minute animated video described the history of bottled water and how the bottled water industry 'sold' us on the need for drinking bottled water. It also described the greed of the industry and the dangers to the environment presented by plastic bottles."
