Corporations Exploit Water Resources Belonging to Indigenous Communities

Nestlé Waters Canada is permitted to bottle 12 million litres of water per day in Ontario for $3.71 per million litres. The government is allowing Nestlé to take water for next to nothing, while Indigenous peoples living on reserves can’t get access to freshwater, and over 137 First Nations communities are under boil water advisories, 100 of them for more than a decade.

Near Elora, the traditional territory of the Six Nations of the Grand River, Nestlé has bought the permits to wells that provide water to entire communities like Aberfoyle, Ontario where Nestlé has continued to bottle water despite droughts.

Just another reason to say Fuck the 150th! #Fuckthe150th #F150 #Canada150 #Resist150
