The Island Water-Not For Sale?


WHEN THE WELL RUNS DRY by Marion Read. Former Lt Gov of PE

Marion Read penned a very interesting if somewhat ominous letter to the Guardian robert-mitchellabout-the-premieryesterday, 20th Oct 2016. She spoke very elegant about her early life living on an island farm.  She emphasized the importance of fresh clean drinking water and how it is not missed until its gone.In the past weeks I have emailed government officials on the subject of Woods and Dawson selling bottle island water abroad. However, I received no clear answers, it seems no one is responsible. Minister Mitchell stated the section 12.1 Environmental Protection Act permits the selling of water in not larger than 25 liter containers. That apparently removed responsibly from him!  Where is the Premier, why does he not put a stop to this project until the Water Act is in place. Surely it is common sense to stop this now.Regardless of which Acts are in place the government can say no. What is to prevent these persons from selling this operation to a Multi National like Nestle a few months down the road? It is time to act Premier MacLauchlan  our island water is not for sale

God Bless and keep reading
