It's here in drought-plagued California I'm reminded about how fragile and necessary water is to both our economy and our survival. A few days ago a well-educated and informed gentleman of this country recently asked me what I thought the USA really wanted from Canada. With an attempt at humour I said somewhat facetiously, political sanctuary? Without blinking, and without humour, he said, "Nope, it’s your water."
While California is far from Prince Edward Island, the issue of water protection is neither far from any place, nor anyone. To this end, and I do trust you are well intentioned in your pursuits, I urge you to heed those amongst us that understand our water challenges. To limit discussion is to limit our vision and, at this critical juncture, that may not bode well for Islanders, especially our grandchildren.
Thanks for remaining open minded.
