Maude Barlow is Chair of the Council of Canadians, Canada's largest citizen advocacy organization. She was the primary speaker at a Water Conference, held in Lexington last April by the University of Kentucky's Appalachian Center. Her 10/12 lecture will relate the Central Kentucky water situation to the Global Water Crisis. Ernie Yanarella. Professor of Political Science, and Co-Chairman of The Center for Sustainable Cities, University of Kentucky will moderate. Speaking at a Seattle Teach-In on water, 11/26/99, Maude was introduced as follows: "Maude Barlow is one of the most inspiring battlers against globalization and corporate control of water on the whole planet. Campaigning against privatization and globalization of the planet's remaining fresh water, she has been on every TV station in Canada and has given speeches in every Canadian city, and many American and European ones. She's tough, she's brilliant, she's fun ---and she wins." "Maude is a major public figure in Canada. She is national chair of the 100,000 member Council of Canadians. Many Canadians say she could run successfully for Prime Minister of Canada--if she only would." Following Maude's lecture, there will be a Question and Answer period for questions and comments.
