Maude Barlow will be here in St. John's on Monday, September 23 (6:30 p.m. at the Lantern, 45 Barnes Road) . She will be talking about her new book WHOSE WATER IS IT ANYWAY and promoting the concept of Blue Communities. We hope you will consider attending.
NL municipalities are currently facing a crisis as they scramble to find the funding required to upgrade our waste-water infrastructure. There is a very good chance that many will be pushed into a public-private partnership (P3). Maude will be able to give an international perspective on why that is a bad idea.
If you can't make the meeting but would like background information on why our local chapter is so opposed to P3s, check out our opinion piece in The Independent.
