British Columbia says no to water privatization

Three-quarters of British Columbians oppose privatization of drinking water.

71% trust their community’s local government more than the private sector to provide safe drinking water.

Almost nine-in-ten (88%) agree with the statement that "water is a basic public service and should always remain in public hands."

"On Vancouver Island, where there are serious threats to public water, this should be an issue in the November 19 municipal and regional district elections" said Barry O’Neill, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, who are campaigning to stop water privatization.
