Council of Canadians spokespeople will participate in workshops and roundtables in Mexico beginning next week for the Cancun climate talks.


Ottawa-based national chairperson of the Council of Canadians, Maude Barlow, will be speaking in Mexico to raise several of the themes she addressed in a recent speech on the environment she delivered in California.


“The global water crisis is the greatest ecological and human threat humanity has ever faced,” said Barlow in a recent speech.


“Dirty water is the biggest killer of children; everyday, more children die of waterborne disease than HIV/AIDS, malaria and war together,” she said.
