BTW, I noticed Council of Canadians’ World Water Day page includes:
“4. Blue Communities – There are now 15 Blue Communities in Canada, and yours could be next! Book a meeting with your municipal councillor or mayor to request that they pass resolutions recognizing the human right to water, banning bottled water from municipal facilities and events, and promoting public water services. Find out more in the Blue Communities Guide here. Bottled Water Free Day on March 19th is another opportunity to call upon your council, school or workplace to ban bottled water.” ~ http://canadians.org/worldwaterday
How about recruiting City of Chilliwack to become the 16th BLUE COMMUNITY!!??
