StatCan Water Loss Study Shows Urgent Need for a Minister of Water, says Council of Canadians

The Council of Canadians is available for comment on Statistics Canada’s new study on freshwater supply and demand in Canada expected to be released today at 8:30am ET.

To address the anticipated serious water loss, the Council of Canadians is calling on the federal government to add a Minister of Water to cabinet, as many other countries have done, including Australia, India and South Africa. The Council argues the minister is needed to urgently restore and strengthen freshwater protections.
