Nestle's couldn't give two shits about the ecosystem and or people in the area. They are slowly working their way towards a monopoly on water (the next black gold imho).
The Council of Canadians, a non-profit social action organization, said the Grand River watershed, where Nestlé’s well and bottling plant are located, is a fragile ecosystem feeding into Lake Erie that must be protected.
“The Nestlé well near Elora sits on the traditional territory of the Six Nations of the Grand River, 11,000 of whom do not have access to clean running water,” said council chair Maude Barlow.
According to Health Canada, about 2,000 people in Six Nations are hooked up to the community water system, but “many residents use cisterns for drinking water and receive deliveries from provincially regulated, off-reserve water providers.”
