(Photo: Frank Gunn/CP)Treasury Board President Liz Sandals, who represents Guelph, Ont., where residents have been criticizing Nestle, says she finds it frustrating that many opponents don't realize the company agreed to reduce its water takings from the Aberfoyle well because of the drought. Sandals says there is "absolutely" a lot of concerns among her constituents about Nestle, but adds a lot of those concerns "actually turn out to be based on misinformation." Guelph residents can speak to Nestle's application at a city council meeting Nov. 7, which was set up after one councillor moved a motion to ask the province to stop Nestle from operating in Aberfoyle.

Author Margaret Atwood posted a link to one of the petitions on her Twitter feed Wednesday, adding the headline: "Tell Nestle to get its hands off of Ontario's water supply."
