The Honourable Nancy Greene Raine delivered three cases of Greenwood Gold bottled water from Greenwood, B.C. – in the senator’s home province – to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s residence, which was received by Harper’s wife Laureen.

The senator is impressed with the very quality of the water.

“The City of Greenwood, produces great quality drinking water from wells tapping into a pristine aquifer 35 metres under the city,” said Raine.

In 2011, a sample of Greenwood’s water was sent to the Berkley Springs International Water Tasting in West Virginia where it competed against cities from 22 countries and all across the U.S.

Last February, after a blind taste test, the water from Greenwood, the smallest city in Canada, was declared the Best Tasting Municipal Water in the World.

Within a few months the city was bottling the water and people passing through town were taking it home as a souvenir.
