The Council of Canadians London chapter had an information table at an event featuring the Water Brothers yesterday.
The outreach had noted, "On World Environment Day, join us for a special presentation of The Big Leak from TVOs The Water Brothers: Tyler & Alex Mifflin. The brothers will be here to discuss the reality of conserving our most precious resource: water. Followed by student presentations and a panel discussion with special guests. Educational passageway displays beginning at 5:30 pm. Presented by the City of London and London Public Library. First Come First Served!"
Chapter activist Julie Picken-Cooper notes, "The Water Brothers presentation is awesome. Not being a TV person I was unaware of their programme on tvo. They are heading into the 4th season. Lots of info and interactive stuff on their website."

The Council of Canadians believes that water and sanitation are human rights; water utilities should be publicly financed, owned and operated; bottled water should be phased out from public facilities and municipal events; water should be removed from 'free trade' deals; tar sands pipelines pose a serious threat to drinking water; every lake and every river should be protected under a strengthened Navigable Waters Protection Act; and the Great Lakes must be recognized as a commons, public trust and protected bio-region.
