Overhaul the BC Water Act to stand up to companies like Nestlé & ensure strong protection of our home waters.


At present, BC's rivers, lakes, streams and groundwater do not have adequate protections to ensure local residents have water wealth for the long-term. In fact, right now, mutli-million dollar corporations like Nestle in Hope, BC are draining millions of litres without paying a cent. Nestle is one of many companies that can access groundwater for free in BC, and the issues of water protection go beyond just the absence of groundwater regulation.

We must see an overhaul of the BC Water Act to regulate the use of groundwater, ensure recognition of Aboriginal Rights & Title, take into account the effects of climate change, and ensure guaranteed flows for our rivers, lakes and aquifers.
