Re the recent article “Protecting the Watershed”
To The Editor:
This situation is shocking and disappointing. To begin, the water originally belonged to the people until local officials sold out to Ice Mountain who continues to sell OUR water back to us. How unjust. As with many situations these days money speaks.
If they are able to donate 2 million to “the cause”, how much are they raking in by taking advantage of resources that belong to all of us while attempting to convince the public that they are “Helping Us All''.
As a native Michigander, water is in my blood. As the world races to head off numerous environmental crises we have the opportunity to make a better long range decision regarding resources. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM! I am fearful that this is a slippery slope and as our water resources dwindle, what will we do when the world begins to set its sights on our water?
Will we choose profit over humanity?
