Around 30 people turned out to the TapIn event, organized by the Central Student Association to rally support for a ban on the sale of bottled water on campus. Speakers pointed out that a 2012 referendum vote had come out 78 per cent in favour of a ban, but administration refused to phase out the sale of bottled water, citing freedom of choice as its reason. “We’re literally putting a price on something that people need to live,” said CSA external affairs commissioner Dominica McPherson. TapIn, a CSA campaign, argues that water is a human right and should not be sold for profit on campus.
