    Reblogged this on "The one who watches over the land" and commented:
    According to this report, British Columbia takes the lead in water advisories in 2015. Due to weakened Canadian environmental laws/regulations and rapid industrialization, this trend is likely to continue. Clean water and community health has become the sacrificial lamb for the sake of short-term gain of big corporations.
