Is water a commercial good like Coca-Cola, or a human right like air?
Whistler Public Library and the Resort Municipality of Whistler present a documentary screening and discussion to acknowledge Drinking Water Week in Whistler, BC.
Featuring best-selling author, activist and public figure Maude Barlow and her crusade to have water declared a human right, protected from privatization, WATER ON THE TABLE explores Canada’s relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. The film shadows Barlow over the course of a year as she leads an unrelenting schedule as the U.N. Senior Advisor on Water to Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, President of the 63rd Session of the United Nations.
There will be a discussion following the film, lead by Michael Day from the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Infrastructure Services Department.
DETAILS: 7:00pm screening at the Whistler Public Library
