Critique of BC’s Water Act

Here’s a really great breakdown of BC’s new water sustainability act from the BC Environmental Law (association… sister association to ECELAW, East Coast Environmental Law)

From WCEL:

After reviewing the Act, we’re actually fairly impressed.  There is a lot to like about this Act – even though many of the critical details will need to be worked out in the regulations.  That being said, there are also concerns and disappointments: especially related to addressing the environmental impacts of current water users and a relaxing of rules regarding making water available for hydraulic fracturing.
