Nestle and Kinder Morgan strike deal while Indigenous and community right to water ignored
Switzerland-based Nestle (the bottled water company) has announced it has reached an agreement with Texas-based Kinder Morgan (the pipeline company).

The issue of contention between the two transnationals has been that Kinder Morgan's 890,000 barrel per day tar sands pipeline would have cut through Nestle's water-bottling property in Hope - on Sto:lo territory - in British Columbia where the transnational... extracts 300 million litres of water each year from the Kawkawa Lake aquifer.
