Maude Barlow and the Council of Canadians brought their 19 city tour of Ontario to Sault Ste. Marie tonight. Maude is one of those legendary people you just have to meet when the opportunity comes, so I managed to catch part of her speech between other personal activities. I even got to chat with her for a few moments before she was whisked away at the start. I was impressed by her passion, commitment and determination to establishing water as a human right.
Below is the live blog transcript of the first hour of the event, possibly the first ever event blogged live in Sault Ste. Marie. Now you know another useless piece of trivia.
