“Just because we have clean drinking water today, doesn’t mean we will still have it tomorrow.”

CUPE National Indigenous Council and CUPE 1500 member Nathalie Claveau is from the small Innu community of Mashteuiatsh, on the shore of Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec.

She’s dedicated to protecting water, along with the rights of those who don’t have access to it. She points to the injustice in many communities, including up North where Inuit must haul in drinking water by tanker truck or buy it bottled.

“And then we’ve got these big companies buying up spring water and bottling it. It’s unfair.”

Watch and listen to her story about what we all must do to protect water and make it available to all.

Then take the pledge to listen, learn and act:
