Dion Announces Policy to Protect Canada's Water

Tip of the Hat to “While the Earth Burns” on his posting on Dion Liberals proposal for a Task Force of the Protection of Canada’s Water Resources.”

Here is a taste of the posting and the policy proposal:

"Today, the climate change crisis makes it more important than ever to preserve fresh water supply in Canada,” added Mr. Dion. “Our fresh water resources aren’t as abundant as we think. While Canada houses almost a quarter of the world’s fresh water, the renewable amount that can actually be replenished by rain fall, and that is safe for sustainable use, is about 7 per cent.”
