If 85% of British Columbians believe freshwater is a basic human right and shouldn’t be for sale, why does the BC government keep selling off water bottling rights to corporations? In season 2, episode 5 of the Freshwater Stream, host Danielle Paydli speaks with water champions who are speaking out against water bottling in their communities. This episode’s guests are Bruce Gibbons, founder of the Merville Water Guardians on Vancouver Island, Annette Letterman of the Golden District Water Protection Committee, counselor Jamie Fletcher from High Bar First Nation and Deborah Curran, executive director of the Environmental Law Center at the University of Victoria.
