Join Octopus Books and the Council of Canadians at the Centretown United Church on Oct 1st, 7pm to hear more from Maude Barlow and her new book, "Blue Future: Protecting Water and People Forever."

"In Blue Future, international bestselling author Maude Barlow offers solutions to the global water crisis based on four simple principles.

Principle One: Water Is a Human Right chronicles the long fight to have the human right to water recognized and the powerful players still impeding this progress.

Principle Two: Water Is a Common Heritage and Public Trust argues that water must not become a commodity to be bought and sold on the open market.

Principle Three: Water Has Rights Too makes the case for the protection of source water and the need to make our human laws compatible with those of nature.

Principle Four: Water Will Teach Us How to Live Together urges us to come together around a common threat — the end of water — and find a way to live more lightly on this planet."
