UPDATE: Nestle doesn’t like Bottled Water Free Day nor the Blue Communities Project

That’s okay, we’re not so fond of Nestle.

The director of corporate affairs for Nestle Waters Canada, John Challinor, writes in a ‘guest op-ed’ in the Toronto Sun today, “Bottled Water-Free Day is a political campaign activated on university campuses by local students’ union leaders, orchestrated off-campus by anti-bottled water activists the Council of Canadians and Polaris Institute and funded by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Like ‘Take Back The Tap’ and the ‘Blue Communities Project’, Bottled Water-Free Day is simply another attempt by CUPE to encourage municipalities, school boards and post-secondary institutions to ban the sale of bottled water in their facilities.”

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Bottled Water Free Day! To read more, please go to Council of Canadians water campaigner Emma Lui’s blog at http://canadians.org/blog/?p=14129.

And since Mr. Challinor is kind enough to be raising the profile of the Blue Communities Project for us on the pages of the Toronto Sun, please see more about that initiative at http://canadians.org/bluecommunities.
