Description

Boiling Point: Government Neglect, Corporate Abuse, and Canada's Water Crisis
Written by Maude Barlow, September 2016

Join Maude Barlow, best-selling author and activist, for a discussion of British Columbia’s water crisis and the upcoming provincial election.

The evening will include presentations by:

  • Marilyn Baptiste, Councillor with the Xeni Gwet'in First Nations Government
  • Jenny Howell, Coordinator of the community's Water Wise Program

We are complacent. We bask in the idea that Canada holds 20% of the world’s fresh water — water crises face other countries, but not ours. We could not be more wrong. In Boiling Point, bestselling author and activist Maude Barlow lays bare the issues facing Canada’s water reserves, including long-outdated water laws, unmapped and unprotected groundwater reserves, agricultural pollution, industrial-waste dumping, boil-water advisories, and the effects of deforestation and climate change.

This will be the defining issue of the coming decade, and most of us have no idea that it is on our very own doorstep.

Maude will be available to sign books! Boiling Point will be available for purchase at the event.

Barlow is one of the world’s foremost water activists and she has been on the front lines of the world’s water crises for the past 20 years. She has seen first-hand the scale of the water problems facing much of the world, but also many of the solutions that are being applied. In Boiling Point, she brings this wealth of experience and expertise home to craft a compelling blueprint for Canada’s water security.
