Letter: U of C gets fountain-free

By Kyle O\’Keefe

An interesting article. Yes, Coca-Cola buys Calgary water and re-brands it as Dasani, but remember at the U of C we can only buy Aquafina due to the now long-forgotten Pepsi agreement. Of course the details of the Pepsi agreement are a closely guarded administration and Students’ Union secret, but have you noticed that there are no water fountains in the university’s two new buildings, ICT and CCIT? I wonder if there will be any water fountains in the digital library or the ISEEE building?

[Editor’s note: There is also no longer a water fountain on the third floor of MacEwan Student Centre. It was removed and not replaced following renovations for NUTV’s new space.]
