Open letter to the NDP about protecting watersheds

Vancouver Island Water Watch Coalition, April 30 2013

TO THE NDP AND THOSE WHO CAN AFFECT CHANGE

I am writing on behalf of the Vancouver Island Water Watch Coalition (VIWWC), a group comprised of Community Coalitions from Victoria to Courtenay and including Port Alberni. Please refer to our website at www.vancouverislandwaterwatchcoalition.ca to view the groups involved.

The goal of VIWWC is to inform citizens of the dangers of privatizing water and the watersheds that sustain our Island communities and to monitor development within our communities, plus challenge the misconceptions around the quantity and quality of water on our Island. VIWWC believes that a well-informed public has the capacity to make the right choices for themselves, the communities they live in and the generations who will follow. Fresh water is a finite and declining resource, water equates to life, and without it our planet will perish.
