A thematic paper opposing the prospect of a Canadian water exporting business due to strong ecological concerns, misconceptions as to fresh water supplies, and the need for environmental polices to correct existing pollution and other damage. Opposition to exporting fresh water is substantiated by course materials towards conclusion stressing the need to promote cultural attitudes of Protecting domestic water supplies that are not endless or renewable; mention of GATT inducements and the mentality of globalization towards quick-profit ventures that can cause much harm.
From the Paper:"A neo-liberal view of the North American environment would suggest that Canadian water resources are in endless supply, are poorly managed and should be exported for profit. This naive outlook reflects the capitalist mindset of Globalization as much as it should point to now global shortages of fresh water as will tempt investors in what could become a flurry of Canadian water exporting ventures. This paper explains some of why such ventures are not to be recommended despite high demand for fresh water in several parts of the world in the 21 century and with a leap in population levels to promise ongoing high demand."
