A fundamental right of all Canadians is the right to fresh publicly owned water. It is my belief that Parliament needs to pass a bill to recognize that water is a fundamental right. As the world climate changes and as we use up the finite resources of the world our Government must adopt a Canada first attitude to all resource usage. We must not allow water to become part of NAFTA as the Security and Prosperity Partnership negotiations to harmonized North American regulations are carried on behind closed doors, as is happening with our current government. We need a strong nationalist Government to have a sustainable Canada first resource utilization policy.
