Nestle is Stealing Canadian Water

Nestle, water, Canada, British Columbia

Nestlé is taking 265 million liters of fresh Canadian water every year to bottle and sell off around the world -- and it does not pay a penny.

This just isn’t right. At a time when water is in short supply around the world, it is outrageous that Nestlé can draw limitless amounts of our natural resources to sell for a huge profit.

Nestlé, the world's largest food company, gets away with this due to a lack of proper regulation in the province of British Columbia. With public outcry growing, the government says it will have public consultation on the issue -- but hasn’t committed to any immediate action.

You can call on the British Columbia Government to enact laws so companies like Nestlé pay to extract our most precious resource by going here: http://action.sumofus.org/a/nestle-freeloading-off-BC
