Many people believe that the global water crisis will be the central issue facing our world this century.
As Maude Barlow has said, “As it becomes more clear that the world is truly running out of water, there’s a scramble for who’s going to make decisions around the allocations of what’s left.”
The Comox Valley Council of Canadians and North Island Students’ Union invite you to a screening of Last Call at the Oasis. This powerful new documentary “shatters myths behind our most precious resource.”
The film is of particular interest in light of the provincial government’s proposed Water Sustainability Act.
Many British Columbians are concerned about the millions of litres of fresh water being contaminated by fracking in B.C.’s natural gas fields. Bottled water companies like Nestle’s currently have free access to B.C.’s groundwater resources.
Changing weather patterns over the next 50 years could mean water shortages during hotter, drier summers.
Everyone is invited to come and learn more about the challenges facing the world’s dwindling fresh water resources and to discuss what can be done to make sure B.C.’s new Water Sustainability Act lives up to its promise of “sustainability.”
Last Call at the Oasis screens this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College in Courtenay.
