Let the silly summer news season began


UBC hates the environment, loves making money from selling bottled water.

Let the silly summer news season began

  1. Even though it is sort of a rediculous news story considering the big picture, the critics have a point- failing to include water fountains and reminding students they can always drink out of the tap is shortsighted on UBC’s part. While its not life or death news I think it’s still important to know.

  2. Why is this news NOW? UBC has been shutting down drinking fountains for years to boost drink sales (and it works). When UBC was in the midst of its Coke Exclusivity agreement, the waterfountain repair budget was axed as soon as they realized that UBC wasn’t going to meet its sales quota.
