These grades are shameful! What are we Canadians doing to our water supply?? And our Federal Government gets an F for its Grade??? Apparently, Canadians have been blessed with clean water for too long! Having been to countries myself where they have problems with their water, Canadians should realize the blessing we have had in terms of clean and disease free water!
"Much of Canada's tap water remains at risk from contamination.For the first time, the report has expanded beyond treatment and monitoring to look at protection of drinking water sources."
"However, it finds that only seven of 13 provinces and territories have taken steps to implement full-fledged source-water protection plans." (source:http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/story/2011/11/15/environment-ecojustice-drinking-water.html )
Why hasn't the Federal Government of Canada required all provinces and territories in this country to have full-fledged source-water protection plans??
