Last Call at the Oasis

I was happy to learn, once I set foot on campus this past January, that U of T is a “bottled water free zone“; that is to say, selling it is against the rules.

As I mentioned in class on Tuesday, there is an excellent documentary film that addresses the increasing problem of the availability of fresh water in the global north, to say nothing of the fact that 1.1 billion people in the world are currently without, and don’t have access to potable water at all.

If you haven’t seen the film, I highly recommend it.

    There’s another documentary called Blue Gold, that is similar to the idea of the documentary you are talking about Sean. It discusses how now water has turned from a basic human right to something we buy and sell on the stock market. Here’s a link to the trailer:
