Water in Canada makes it crystal clear that the quantity and quality of our freshwater resources are diminishing at an alarming rate. Environmental journalist Hanneke Brooymans examines the effects of human activities on our water, and presents a thought-provoking analysis of our water issues: * Where Canada's freshwater comes from * Water politics and economics * The impact of climate change on our water resources * Whether our supply of freshwater now and for the future is healthy and sustainable in the face of increasing urban, agricultural and industrial use * Threats and concerns including pollution, bottled water pros and cons, boil-water advisories and flawed water treatment systems in our municipalities and First Nations communities * What our three levels of government are doing to protect and conserve freshwater -- and what they should be doing * Conflicts related to international water issues including diversion projects that might see our freshwater sold to thirsty states in the US * These huge issues, which have enormous ramifications for future generations of Canadians, receive fair and intelligent discussion in this fascinating treatment -- an essential book for anyone who uses or drinks water in Canada.
