Although I tend to shy away from such groups simply because no one activism group really fits my opinion on topics or the extremities of where they go with their opinions and actions, I would very much like to congratulate Maude Barlow and being named the UN’s first water adviser.
Maude is the chair of the Council of Canadians which, among other things, has been looking for leadership on the issue of water and the sustainability of some of our practices for some time now. Finally someone as realized that Maude has some very important, intelligent and insightful things to say on the issue and has recognized her for it in one of the best ways possible.
So congratulations Maude, make us proud!
