Canada has long been seen as a land of natural bounty—a country of lush forests, abundant agriculture, and pristine lakes. Even as the sustainability of many resources has been questioned, Canadians have remaind stubbornly convinced of the unassailability of their water. Mounting evidence suggests, however, that Canadian water is, in fact, under threat.

Eau Canada assembles top experts to discuss the most pressing water issues. Perspectives from a broad range of expertise—geographers, environmental lawyers, former govenrmnet officials, aquatic and political scientists, and economists—reflect the diversity of concerns in water management. Arguing that weak governance is at the heart of Canada's water problems, this timely book indentifies key failings, explores debates over jurisdiction, transboundary waters, exports, and privatization, and maps out solutions for a more sustainable future. Eau Canada provides a powerful discussion of the most controversial and pressing water issues facing Canadians today.
