This is a powerful statement of how the community does not approve of Nestlé or their products being here in Elora or anywhere in the world.

Ontario citizens, Members of Parliaments, Environmentalist, All bodies of Government, Store Owners, Farmers: The Time is NOW to stand tall and VOICE YOUR DISAPPROVAL!

Nestlé Waters Canada has negotiated the purchase of a Wellington County spring water business. The deal to obtain Middlebrook Water Co., is conditional upon Middlebrook’s existing production permit being renewed later this year by Ontario Ministry of Environment.

Nestlé proposes to drain 1,300 Litres per minute even though this is a “back up water source” for their factory in Aberfoyle, Ontario where 90% of the 180,000 bottles created daily end up in the United States and eventually the Oceans &
Landfills all across the world. Our community is not a back up factory and with
Nestlé’s track record, there is no reason why they would stop at 1,300 Litres per day, especially as the water crisis amplifies. It is up to us as a worldwide community to protect our sacred waters and to keep our wildlife and natural resources free from exploitation. Our water does not belong in plastic to be shipped
around the world to profit a private company that seeks to control all water.

The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labelling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and
has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media. This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:

In the small Pakistani community of Bhati Dilwan, a former village councillor says children are being sickened by filthy water. Who’s to blame? He says it’s bottled water-maker Nestlé, which dug a deep well that is depriving locals of potable water. “The water is not only very dirty, but the water level sank from 100 to 300 to 400 feet,” Dilwan says. Why? Because if the community had fresh water piped in, it would deprive Nestlé of its lucrative market in water bottled under the Pure Life brand.
