Nestlé Waters leaving Canada is a community success | The Council of Canadians: This afternoon, Nestlé Canada Inc. announced it will leave the Canadian bottled water market and sell its bottled water brand, Nestlé Pure Life, to Ice River Springs.
This is a significant win for communities across Canada, and everyone who has been fighting the bottled water giant. “Community groups, First Nations, residents across the country and Council of Canadian supporters have persistently challenged Nestlé’s water takings in Wellington County, Ontario and Hope, British Columbia.
This is their victory against the multi-national giant,” says Vi Bui, water campaigner with the Council of Canadians.
