The Council of Canadians Calgary chapter organized a public forum this afternoon featuring Maude Barlow talking about her new book Boiling Point: Government Neglect, Corporate Abuse, and Canada’s Water Crisis.
In Boiling Point, Barlow writes, "The water crisis is at our door here in Canada. All the issues we thought so far away are upon us now. It is time to abandon our false beliefs that Canada has unlimited supplies of water, that Canadians have taken care of this water heritage and one another or that we still have lots of time to do so. We need a strong, national plan of action based on a new water ethic that puts water protection and water justice at the heart of all our policies and laws."
Council of Canadians organizer Diane Connors tweeted quotes from Barlow's speech this afternoon including:
