Water Water not Much Left.

I was at an investment conference on the weekend. The main gist was invest in infrastructure like water projects. The following statistics was shared with us: 97% of the world's water is in the oceans, 3% of the world's is fresh most of which is in the ice caps and of the remainder of the 3% ,75% is polluted. As fresh water becomes our most important resource our government has forced through legislative changes to weaken water protection. under the ammendments to the Navigatable water Protection Act they have given the environment minister the right to stop or bypass environmental assessments. This is a moral crime as we need stronger protection of our fresh water not less.
