Our Statement on the applications for the renewal of our permits in Puslinch and Erin
It has always been our intention once the moratorium ended, to continue to seek renewal of our permits for Aberfoyle and Erin. BlueTriton Brands supports policies in Ontario that are grounded in science and that have a fair, objective approvals process. The Government of Ontario’s Science and Policy Review was conducted in 2020, and, confirmed that water-takings for bottling purposes is managed sustainably and that there is no scientific justification for regulating water bottlers any differently than other water users.
We are pleased to see our permit applications posted and stand with the science and data that supports these applications. We are proud of our long history of conservation, supporting the communities as an employer and contributor to local organizations, as well as maintaining open and transparent communications. We look forward to the opportunity to participate in the consultation process and encourage open dialogue.
