Not bottled water, apparently:
The United Church of Canada (UCC) is advising its 590,000 members to stop buying bottled water, and expressing concern at a number of levels around the issue of water consumption.
“The main thrust is our concern about the privatization of water,” UCC social policy coordinator Richard Chambers told the Canadian Press. UCC, he said, “is committed to supporting municipal water sources wherever they exist in the country, and strengthening those.”
wow, somebody must have read Rob Glennon’s “Water Follies” book. It always amazes me when a fairly wonkish issue is appropriated by a community/social group — makes me hopeful that at least some knowledge transfer is happening between the ivory tower and the broader citizenry.
