Chapter activist Mary Cowper-Smith
The Council of Canadians P.E.I. chapter welcomes the proposed ban on the export of bottled water from P.E.I. noted in the province's draft Water Act.
In a letter to the editor, chapter activist Mary Cowper-Smith writes, "With World Water Day being celebrated today, March 22, I am heartened to see that the draft Water Act released last week would make it illegal to export bottled water from P.E.I. The supply of fresh water around the world is disappearing and many parts of the world already face severe water shortages. Exporting P.E.I.’s precious fresh water is indeed a mistake."
