NEWS: Water on the Table plays in Grand Forks, BC

The Boundary Sentinel reports that, “Each year the No Boundaries film club brings a selection of films to Grand Forks (a town in British Columbia, about 500 km from Vancouver, with a population of 4,036 people) with the Traveling World Community Film Festival. The sixth annual Grand Forks screening of the Traveling World Community Film Festival is slated for Friday, Feb. 25 through Sunday, Feb. 27 at Grand Forks Secondary School.”

“The second film on Friday is Water on the Table, which explores Canada’s relationship to its fresh water, arguably its most precious resource. Featured in the film is Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians.” Water on the Table highlights Maude’s work to have water recognized as a human right at the United Nations, to stop the Site 41 landfill in Simcoe County, and to stop the destruction wrought by the tar sands in northern Alberta.

Grand Forks, BC is located at the confluence of the Granby River and Kettle River, a tributary of the Columbia.
