About this title

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author:

HANNEKE BROOYMANS began her journalism career in science labs at the University of Alberta. It was a place not overly populated with writers at the time. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental biology, the notion of communicating all those lessons dawned on her one day. Hanneke is now an experienced journalist who has served as an environment reporter at the Edmonton Journal for the past nine years. During that time, she has been a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists. As a journalist, she feels her duty is always to provide citizens with the most thorough, relevant and up-to-date information possible so they can make up their own minds about what needs to be done about environmental issues. After that, it's up to them.
