Congratulations to the Saskatoon chapter who was granted a review by city council staff of the proposal to make Saskatoon a blue community! This came about through the chapter presenting to city council and submitting a formal request.
Gail Stevens from the Council's Saskatoon chapter at the CBC studios
Becoming a blue community would mean 3 things: 1) Recognizing water as a human right 2) Banning the sale of bottled water in public facilities and at municipal events 3) Promoting publicly financed, owned and operated water and waste water services.
The chapter received great media coverage, including from the CBC, spreading the important message of the need to protect water.
