OTTAWA, Oct. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - During the 2008 Federal Election all major
political parties were issued a challenge to "Turn on the Tap" and make their
campaigns bottled water free.
The New Democrats committed to:
- "No bottled water at our central campaign office...at Leader's Tour
The Greens committed to:
- "A non-reusable bottled-free campaign"
The Liberals refused to commit to the challenge on the basis that they do
not sign pledges during elections, and the Conservatives and Bloc Quebecois
did not return repeated requests for confirmation of their position.
