Religious groups in Canada declare war on bottled water
Water and the rights to it have fueled many debates in the past. Recently several churches in Canada have been advocating against consumption of bottled water, citing ethical, social, and theological reasons. The United Church, for example, has urged its almost 600,000 members to boycott bottled water because of their commitment to "supporting municipal water sources wherever they exist in the country, and strengthening those."
Cleaning up tap water supplies is a must for all countries. More information about tap water in the U.S. is available here.
