Product Description


Within the deep blue covers of Ethical Water flow a clear image of why the current Western World's view on how to manage water is profoundly unsustainable, all capped with a sensible, concise prescription for a vital solution.―Lynn Martel, Rocky Mountain Outlook


I am grateful that Sandford and Phare are fighting for a better Canada on our behalf. The very fact that Ethical Water takes a principled stance is downright refreshing. Reading it with an open mind will probably make you a better person, and there’s no higher test of the value of a book.―Kyrke Gaudreau, Alternatives Journal
