CUPE Nova Scotia President Says Nestle Waters Canada Exploiting World Water Day
HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - CUPE Nova Scotia President Danny Cavanagh is joining a chorus of water activists who say Nestlé Waters Canada, a private water company, is exploiting World Water Day for profit.
CUPE says the company issued a press release alerting the media that company executive John Challinor II will be accepting calls from the press on World Water Day (today) to talk about the company's "policies on water management and conservation."
The Inside the Bottle coalition – which CUPE is a part of – is encouraging its supporters to call John Challinor II today and let him know that water is not something that can be bought and sold for profit.
Cavanagh says, "As the largest bottled water company in the world, it is hypocritical in the extreme for Nestle to be trying to gain media exposure on World Water Day."
