Letter: Government needs to create laws to protect water resource

To The Editor:

We as Canadians need to protect our water and corporations must stop pumping it up for free so they can make a profit.

It is a valuable resource and should be respected.

Without clean water humans are in trouble. It is about time the government stood up and took notice by creating laws to protect our precious resource. I am very fortunate to have clean clear drinking water at my home and be able to swim in clean lakes and rivers here in the Kootenays.

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 fulfils our right to a healthy environment, including the right to clean water.
