Activist Maude Barlow says water is the future, but it is increasingly being bought, sold and controlled by private corporations, a trend she says undercuts national sovereignty and human rights.
"There probably is not an issue more moving, more demanding, more commanding than water," the national chairwoman of the Council of Canadians told a packed conference room at the John Deutsch Centre on the Queen's campus yesterday.
She warned that corporations are increasingly seeing water as a commodity to be sold - whether in its fresh state from glacier meltwater or the Great Lakes, or by recycling and reclaiming wastewater through nanotechnology and chemical treatment - and once a company has gone through the process of making wastewater drinkable again, it lays claim to it and sells it to the highest bidder.
