Canadians love our vast and beautiful expanses of water but know next to nothing about them. Eau Canada is a myth-busting, fact-based, comprehensive collection on all facets of our water that every Canadian should own. Without the knowledge contained in this book, we could lose the right to control our water in an increasingly thirsty world. -- Maude Barlow, National Chairperson, Council of Canadians
We Canadians display a passionate concern about water and about our stewardship of this resource, but sadly we know very little about either. Read this book and fix that problem. Looking at the state of Canada's water resources and Canadian water policy, Eau Canada gives us the facts about both, and shows what we need to do to care for this priceless resource better. Lots of surprising information. Lots of good ideas. Well written. What more could you ask for? A good book to buy. -- David Cameron, Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto
Canada's leading water experts paddle upstream against the flow of conventional wisdom in this excellent book. They are frank about Canada's water problems and forceful in describing the solutions that exist but aren't being implemented. Mandatory reading for all people concerned about the future of fresh water in Canada. -- David Boyd, author of Unnatural Law
