Barlow Points Out Water Woes

It's hard to believe in a water-rich country like Canada but we are a planet running out of clean water.

That from Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians.

Barlow tells CHSJ News you can find water but it may not be in good shape.

She says it's been polluted, mismanaged or displaced.

A study by the Royal Bank says the demand for water will outstrip supply by 40 per cent by the year 2030 which Barlow says means people will die along with entire ecosystems.

She says we need to turn our heads around and stop taking water for granted.
