UPDATE: Council chapter organizes ‘Blue Gold’ screening in Ottawa

This evening, the Ottawa chapter of the Council of Canadians – with support from the United Nations Association in Canada, Ottawa Riverkeeper, and Bridgehead – organized a screening of the film ‘Blue Gold’ at the St. Giles Presbyterian Church in the Glebe to mark World Water Day.

More than 60 people – including two city councillors – were in attendance to watch the film, listen to Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown talk about local water issues, and hear from me about the Council’s national and international water campaign work.

Also at the event were Council of Canadians energy campaigner Andrea Harden-Donahue (she announced to the audience our upcoming intervention at the Arctic summit in Chelsea!), communications officer Matthew Ramsden, and Board member Fred Wilson.

This was the Ottawa chapter’s first public meeting and it was a tremendous success. They were happy with the turnout, the event itself, and many names were added to sign-up sheets for future events and actions.

This event was one of more than thirty actions organized by Council chapters across the country this World Water Day.
