In 2002 Canada was the ONLY country to vote against the United Nations resolutions on the human right to water stating: "Canada does not accept that there is a right to drinking water and sanitation" (http://www.canadians.org/water/documents/WWD/2009/WWDFS-0309-RTW.pdf)
The Council of Canadians has a fantastic website with factsheets and resources on Canada's current situation with water. Tap water in Canada is tested on average 20 000 times a year, as opposed to bottled water that has vague and ambiguous policies (if any) regarding water testing. Take the tap water pledge and support water as a human right! Of course, clean water also directly ties into what chemicals we wash down the drain when we use body soap, shampoo, dish soap etc; as many of these chemicals are not able to be treated by our water treatment facilities and are being found in lakes and rivers across the country (Ecoholic by Adria Vasil, 2007).
