A group trying to pressure the BC government into protecting water supplies across the province is ready to deliver its petition to the Environment Minister.
Members of SumOfUs.org have spent the last few months gathering names on a petition demanding a review of BC’s new groundwater pricing structure which starts in January.
So far, more than 364,000 people have signed.
The document is going to be delivered to Mary Polak’s constituency office in Surrey at noon Wednesday.
On Monday, Premier Christy Clark announced the government’s plan to charge companies including Nestle $2.25 per million litres will be reviewed.
The focus of the campaign has been against the Swiss-based company’s plant near Hope which bottles 265-million litres every year.
Polak has already said water can’t be sold as a commodity because that might cause problems with international trade agreements.
