Letter: We all have a right to clean water

Editor: March 22 is World Water Day, and I believe that water is the most important Earth resource other than clean air.

I also believe that one of the most powerful ways to protect our water is through legislation, but those laws must apply to all people and businesses if we want to see real change.

I have the strong feeling that this is the critical time for government to take action.

Canada has a new leader who loves the environment.

It’s time for the federal government to implement the right to clean water in Canada by passing an environmental bill of rights that respects, protects and fulfills our right to a healthy environment, including the right to clean water.
