‘Water on the table’ screening kicks off Green Wednesdays at Kwantlen

Langley campus hosts another season of Green Wednesday events, starting off with Canadian doc on freshwater resources.

Kwantlen’s Langley campus hosts Green Wednesdays, kicking off next week with a free screening of Water on the Table, a Canadian documentary.

The film explores Canada’s relationship to its freshwater resources, and features Maude Barlow’s attempts to protect water from privatization.

On the other side of the water debate are policy and economic experts who argue that water is a resource and commodity like any other.

The evening will also include door prizes, refreshments, educational displays, resource materials and a chance to meet Harjap Grewal of the Council of Canadians BC/Yukon office, who will be on hand with the latest news and information on issues about protecting Canada’s fresh water supply.

Green Wednesdays are presented by the Green Ideas Network and Kwantlen’s School of Horticulture, who have once again partnered with the Langley Environmental Partners Society do celebrate Langley’s Water Weeks.

The evening runs from Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s auditorium, located at 20901 Langley Bypass. Pre-register at 604-599-3247 or email betty.cunnin@kwantlen.ca.
