ACTION ALERT: Protect B.C.’s water from corporate freeloaders

Imagine a place where companies can take as much water as they want. They don’t need to ask permission from government or the community. And they don’t have to pay any fees for the water they use.

Sound unbelievable? Well, it’s not – at least not in British Columbia.

B.C. doesn’t require companies to apply for permits when they withdraw groundwater, nor to report how much water they are taking. This allows industries, such as bottled water and fracking, to use groundwater at no cost.

Nestlé alone withdraws 265 million litres of groundwater a year from Hope, B.C.

Tell the B.C. government that enough is enough. You want action now!
