    A Must Read

    The book entitled "Boiling Point" should be a must read and serve as some sort of a treatise of advice based on facts, merit, and information on the preservation of our waters. We Canadians have taken and continue to take our country's abundance of water availability largely for granted. After reading this book and it's carefully rsearched facts, the fact of the matter remains that Canada, surprisingly and contrary to popular belief, is not the world's largest water nation (Brazil is). However, our ~Great Lakes systms and our water that is so vital in upkeeping our ecosystem of complex glaciers, reservoirs, rivers, basins, wetlands, watersheds, and of course our many lakes, makes us the envy of the world. It is for that reason that our systems of water distributon, be it municipal, or by nature, is under threat via our economic structures as well as by way of current trade agreements. While Canada has always relied on her natural resources to power our economy, how it is done and most importantly where it is done and by whom, will be the key to maintaining, improving, regulating, and protecting this water that rematns so vital to everythiing we do -- from the air we breathe to the foods we consume to the structures we manage to the services we pay for and need. The author Maude Barlow makes a compelling argument in defence of not just Canada's but the rest of the world's nations, for the sustainability of our environment and the continuuing need for protection from trans national foreign corprations who see Canada's waters as the next frontier in the extraction & marketing of this commodity. When governments fail tok preserve and raather, seek to undermine science and implement policies that seek to punish or hinder their own people, in the name of economic growth, it is time to rethink, reword, recoup, and regroup the true neaning of economic growth with sound water and environmental policies. Oil extractions involving Bitumen and fracking, both of whuch require a huge amount of water taken from surrounding lakes leaving them as potential dead lakes due to oxygen depletion from the efluent discharge of chemicals used in the above-mentioned processes (less water due to evaporation processes not including the above means less moisture in the air which leaves our trees & forests to brown leading to potential wildfires); the building of pipelines
