LIVING IN THE mountains of British Columbia I’m very fortunate to have such an abundance of clean, fresh water (although recently water restrictions due to lowering supplies have become more common). It’s hard for me to grasp exactly what is happening in Flint, Michigan. It’s just not an issue I’ve ever had to face. Besides from the water being poisoned and it being held quiet for so long, the city appears to still be charging its residents for it and taking away homes and children from those who refuse to (or can’t) pay. It’s hard to imagine this being able to happen in America in 2016. But there you go. All the best to you Flint.
