Nestlé Waters Canada has backed away from a battler with Ontario environmental groups and will now face water restrictions during times of drought. On Tuesday, the company withdrew its appeal to the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal. The tribunal was set to hear arguments, brought by environmental groups, about whether the company should face water restrictions.
Yesterday we spoke with Mike Nagy, Chair of the Wellington Water Watchers, one of the groups that brought the case to the tribunal's attention. He explained why his group opposed a for-profit company receiving exemptions from water taking rules.
