World Water Day Screening of “Water on the Table”

Wed Mar 22, 2017, Mahone Bay, NS

The award-winning Canadian documentary “Water on the Table” was produced by Liz Marshall and has been described as “visually sumptuous and poetic.” It celebrates water as Canada's most precious natural resource, questioning whether it should be treated as a commercial good or a human right (like air). The film at 7 PM and following discussion at 8 PM will provide opportunities to explore how the water-bottling industry affects our watersheds and groundwater, and, with the memory of last summer's drought, what we might do to ensure water security.

Some fun activities are planned for the evening as well. Everyone will be invited to explore personal daily use of water and to take part in a water-tasting survey. There will be displays with information about the human right to water; the lack of access to clean, safe water in many First Nations communities in Canada; and, the current campaign to boycott Nestlé. The evening is organized by the South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians.

All welcome. Free Admission. Donations accepted to help cover event costs
