Not yet rated | write a review

An incisive critique of Canada''s failed management of its water supply.

In this authoritative review of decades of independent critiques, accompanied by many riveting stories of water management failures, award-winning journalist Chris Wood and Canadian water policy expert Ralph Pentland explore how governments have failed to protect the waters that we drink, fish, and swim in and that support every aspect of our national economy.

The authors review the history of water management in Canada and compare recent approaches in Canada, the United States, and Europe, proposing measures to improve our performance, including a new charter that will hold governments to account.
