Celebrate Canada Water Week March 18 – 24!

By Megan Lorius, Gordon Foundation

This reality is highlighted in the latest work from The Water Brothers, Alex and Tyler Mifflin, who travelled with WaterCan to Africa, to see the global water crisis first-hand. In “No Woman, No Water” these young Ontario filmmakers highlight one of the most dire public health emergencies of our time. You can join The Water Brothers and Ben Mulroney, WaterCan National Ambassador, to watch this important short film and join in the discussion that follows as part of the TVO DocStudio Screening Series.

This series will also feature “Superfish: Bluefin Tuna” by marine biologist and wildlife cameraman Rick Rosenthal. Species extinction is a challenge the world over and with this documentary and the discussion to follow with Rick Rosenthal, the dangers of over-fishing will be explored.

Canada Water Week (March 18 – 24, 2013) is an annual celebration held in conjunction with World Water Day (March 22). For the third year WWF has partnered with leading water organizations in Canada to encourage grass roots celebrations of the water ways that make our country great! This year, we’re pleased to partner with Living Lakes Canada, the Canadian Freshwater Alliance and the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation to raise awareness and provide opportunities for Canadians to support water initiatives.

    I wish to goodness, that something can be done in the immediate future about the problems in Georgian Bay. My brother and sister in law live on an island all year round and they only have a trickle of water between the two islands. How is one supposed to live with NO water? When I was up there in the fall, we could not wash ourselves, dishes, clothing or shower., SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.
