On March 22nd is World Water Day, and I believe that water is the most important earth resource other than clean air. I also believe that one of the most powerful ways to protect our water is through legislation, but those laws must apply to all – people and businesses – if we want to see real change. I have these strong feelings that this is the critical time for government to take action. Canada has a new leader, who loves the environment.
This summer I am hiking the Lake Berg trail to spend time in one of our beautiful provincial parks to see incredible waterfalls made from glaciers.
It’s time for the federal government to implement the right to clean water in Canada by passing an environmental bill of rights that respects, protects and fulfils our right to a healthy environment, including the right to clean water.
