Some believe that access to clean drinking water is, at minimum, a basic human right.
That perspective and others will be explored during a screening of the documentary, Tapped, on Friday night at the Chilliwack River Valley Fish and Game Club.
The topic came up recently when about 110 residents turned out to the public meeting on Feb. 21 expressing concern about a bulk-water extraction proposal for an agricultural property on Chilliwack Lake Road.
Stephanie Soechtig’s debut Tapped is described as an “unflinching” documentary examining of the big business realities of bottled water.
Chilliwack River Valley Waterkeepers are hosting the evening of information-sharing, discussion and film-viewing.
The 76-minute documentary film from 2010 will explore whether access to clean drinking water is a basic human right or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other.
The free film screening starts at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 8 at the CRV Fish and Game Protective Association on Chilliwack Lake Road.
