B.C.’s groundwater is under threat and I need your help to protect it.
In just a few weeks, local governments and First Nations throughout B.C. will vote on an important resolution that calls on the province to stop issuing water licences to commercial water bottling operations in the province.
These licences allow water bottling corporations to take fresh groundwater, bottle it in plastic, and sell it for profit.
Your mayor and councillors will vote on this critical issue at the upcoming Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention September 23-27. Resolutions UBCM members pass have a lot of sway in determining how the province conducts its business.
We need every mayor and councillor attending the convention to know that their constituents support this measure. Will you write your local officials today and ask them to vote in favour of this resolution?
