Council of Canadians Edmonton Chapter Activist Picnic

Jun 26 2017 - 12:00am to 3:00am

You are cordially invited to attend a picnic to celebrate the work of the Council of Canadians Edmonton Chapter and to help us to make a difference in 2017.

Last year, our main theme was Climate Change, attracting well-known climate advocates such as Andrew Nikiforuk in public forums. The majority of nations are acknowledging the effects of Climate Change; local awareness and action may be critical. Meanwhile, other environmental issues become more pronounced, as toxic chemicals become increasingly dangerous and water shortages, drought and pollution are exacerbated.  Read more about Council of Canadians Edmonton Chapter Activist Picnic

Please join the Council of Canadians, Edmonton Chapter, on March 22, 2017 to view the award winning film “Water on the Table”.  Inform yourself about why one of our most precious inheritances is being threatened and how you can help to save it.

Water On The Table from LizMars on Vimeo.

Is water a commercial good like Coca-Cola, or a human right like air?

Featuring best-selling author, activist and public figure Maude Barlow and her crusade to have water declared a human right, protected from privatization, WATER ON THE TABLE explores Canada’s relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. The film shadows Barlow over the course of a year as she leads an unrelenting schedule as the U.N. Senior Advisor on Water to Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, President of the 63rd Session of the United Nations. Read more about Free Film Viewing and Discussion: Water on the Table
