Stop Commercial Water Bottling in BC

After consecutive years of drought in BC, it’s increasingly clear that
we need to manage our water resources with caution and care.
Prioritizing the use of water for people and nature—as opposed to
for profit—is an important piece of this puzzle.

In September, municipalities, regional districts and First Nations
throughout British Columbia will vote on an important resolution:
asking the province to stop issuing water licenses to commercial
water bottling operations in the province.

The vote will happen at the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM)
convention, held between Sept. 23-27 in Vancouver…

In April, the resolution was passed by all 53 members of the
Association of Vancouver Island Coastal Communities. Now it’s up
to the rest of BC.
