Comox and Cumberland – Canada’s newest Blue Communities.
Chapter Executive member Linda Safford presented a framed certificate to each Council at recent Council meetings. The certificates will be a permanent reminder of:
* their recognition of water as a human right
* their commitment to publicly financed water and waste water services,
* their goal of eliminating single-use bottled water in municipal buildings and at municipal events where access to municipal tap water exists.
Comox and Cumberland have joined municipalities across Canada committed to protecting our shared water resources in the face of increasing pressure to put water up for sale and privatize water services.
