The Council of Canadians PEI chapter is seeking to have Charlottetown and other municipalities on Prince Edward Island become blue communities.
What an incredible World Water Day this year! Over 30 Council of Canadians chapters organized events and actions in communities from coast to coast. Paris became the latest Blue Community. The B.C. Supreme Court ruled against the dump site at Shawnigan Lake. And Montreal is considering a city-wide bottled water ban!

Paris, France – The city of Paris is commemorating World Water Day by becoming the largest city in the world so far to become a Blue Community.
