Yesterday, Canada's Western premiers announced they would be taking steps to "conserve and manage" the country's "valuable fresh water supplies." So it's somewhat surprising to see those same premiers appear to have been drinking bottled water at the conference where they made that decision! This, according to the above photograph which was posted on the British Columbia government's Website. After all, as part of an effort to do the same thing, activists have urging government to reign in the bottled water industry. British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell's office has yet to respond to a request for comment.
