Duke of York pub, 39 Prince Arthur Avenue, 7 p.m.
Debate around our water resources is set to intensify as society’s thirst for power encroaches on our water supplies. Without this precious resource, there would be no life.
Join us on Monday, June 18th, 2012, at the Duke of York, with Tara Seucharan and Michael Brothers from the Toronto Chapter of the Council of Canadians to discuss water rights affecting Canada and rest of the world.
Should water be a human right? What does that imply? Should it be free for all to use and inevitably waste? Commercialization of water is big business with companies selling water shipped from the other side of the world for $6/litre while safe and clean water is being wasted here at home at a cost of about $2/1000 litres. What are ethics around permanently contaminating our drinking water supplies through energy extraction and what does it mean for the future?
Make sure you’re part of this discussion.
