Sudbury chapter questions Wynne

The Council of Canadians Sudbury chapter has written Ontario Premier Wynne to express its disappointment over her government’s new regulations on bottled water takings.

Sudbury chapter activist Glenn Murray wrote, “As you are working hard to gain favour with Ontario voters on almost the eve of the next election, the one thing your government continues to drop the ball on is protecting the absolutely most precious resource we have, water. You are putting this valuable resource at risk for the benefit of a well known greedy multinational... Plus, to top it off, you are adding to an already uncontrollable environmental situation with the saturation of our highways, byways, waterways, and landfills, with plastic, single use containers that the bottled water comes in.”
