OTTAWA, March 18 /CNW Telbec/ - On World Water Day, March 22, over 40
communities across Canada will be joining the Council of Canadians' call for a
national water policy. The organization and its supporters are demanding
federal legislation to address the rising threats of bulk water exports to the
United States, the privatization of water services and increasing levels of
water contamination in Canada.
The Council of Canadians is working with the Canadian Union of Public
Employees, Oxfam Canada and the Polaris Institute to raise awareness on the
water crisis in Canada.
Susan Howatt is the national water campaigner at the Council of
Canadians. She has spoken in communities across the country on Canada's
water crisis and the need for a national water policy.
The Council of Canadians is Canada's largest citizens' advocacy
organization with 76 chapters across Canada.
