This water should be preserved as a public good for the people of Ontario, not bottled virtually for free to be sold for private gain. We are lucky to have an abundance of fresh, clean tap water readily available to residents of our cities and towns in this part of the world - consuming bottled water is not anecessity. Shipping millions of litres of bottled water across the country and beyond is certainly not a necessity.
Private corporations bottling water at these remarkably low rates privatizes an essential good that should be preserved for Ontarians or at a minimum sold at a fair rate.
