Imagine a world without water

No clean drinking water. No wild caught seafood. No hot showers or cold dips in the pool. It’s almost unthinkable…but not impossible. As Canada, along with the rest of the world, deals with population increase, climate change, and complex regulations, water stability is rapidly changing.
