Battle Against Water Privateers escalating

When the Wellington Water Watchers set itself in motion about three weeks back organizers were hoping to get 151 people to challenge Nestle's application to remove 3.5 million litres of water a day from the aquifer used by the city of Guelph and Puslinch. As predicted on this blog at the time, this issue would galvanize the environmental movement. The deadline for submitting an objection to the water-taking permit has been extended to May 11 and the form can be accessed via the Water Watchers website
Curiously, there is wellingtonwaterwatchers.com website that appears to be set up by the spring water industry.
Elizabeth May spoke forcefully on the issue in Guelph last weekend and on Wednesday May 2 Maude Barlow will be in Guelph discussing the issue. She'll also be discussing the Security and Progress Act which is little more than a corporate pillage-the-commons agreement between Canada, the US and Mexico (which is little more than a narco-State run by organized crime and a corrupt military.)
