Join us to celebrate Canada Water Week 2017, a week-long celebration of water from coast-to-coast-to-coast, held annually in the third week of March to coincide with World Water Day on March 22.

This year the Town of Ajax in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation is hosting a Free Screening of the documentary Lost Rivers followed by a short question and answer period with Andrew Emond and Krystyn Tully makers of the film.

Synopsis of Lost Rivers

"Once upon a time, in almost every industrial city, countless rivers flowed, But as cities grew, we polluted rivers so much that they became conduits for deadly waterborne diseases. Our solution two centuries ago was to bury rivers underground and merge them with sewer networks.

Today, under the city, they still flow, out of sight and out of mind... until now. We search for the disappeared Petite rivière St-Pierre in Montreal, the Garrison Creek in Toronto, the River Tyburn in London, the Saw Mill River in New York, and the Bova-Celato River in Bresica, Italy. Could we see these rivers again? To find the answer, we meet visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world."

DISCLAIMER- this documentary does have some mild strong language and may not be suitable for all viewers.
