    Default It's All Abooot Me, Me, Me!!

    "We wake up, take a shower, brush our teeth and flush the toilet every day, likely without even thinking about the precious resource right at our fingertips.

    We grab a bottle of water or walk the streets of Toronto and pass such businesses as the WaterShoppe, a store that sells bottled water. At the WaterShoppe, you can buy water imported from France in a bottle embellished with Swarovski crystals. The reality elsewhere in the world is flagrantly different.

    According to World Water Council data, 1.1 billion people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water. Moreover, by 2025, around 3.5 billion people will inhabit an area where water is scarce or becoming scarce.

    "I don't understand how we, in countries like Canada, can waste resources without thinking about those who do not even have access to these resources," says Tami Shum, a Grade 12 student at Langstaff Secondary School in Richmond Hill, who is also head of the environmental club."

    According to the article, there is more water used to produce these bottles of water, than the contents of the bottle!

    It says we can buy water imported from France. So why isn't France taking the initiative and bottling for underdeveloped countries?

    Speedy can point out, that compared to the States, Canada is underdeveloped, so why doens't the states give us free gas and water?
