The Council of Canadians Quinte chapter had an information table at the Belleville Library for World Water Day yesterday.
The chapter tells us, "There was a steady stream of people (young and old) stopping at our table from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. We had some good discussions and 5 people signed up as being interested in joining our Water Group. We also had an invitation from Loyola Community Learning Centre to speak to a group of immigrants to explain about the safety and importance of drinking tap water."
The chapter worked in shifts to keep the table staffed throughout the day.
Twenty-four Council of Canadians chapters participated in World Water Day actions across the country this year.
