This week we're bringing you more from the Blue Summit on water issues.
Steven Shrybman practices international trade and public interest law in Ottawa, and he's on the Board of Directors of the Council of Canadians. He frequently speaks and has written extensively on the impact of international trade law on various aspects of Canadian policy. He has also been involved in drafting and promoting conventions on cultural diversity and access to water as a human right. In his presentation on the "next ten years" of public water on November 29th, Shrybman gave his audience seven convincing reasons why it isn't necessarily all doom and gloom ahead.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
