Is water so scarce that it could lead to war between the U.S. and Canada over ownership of the valuable substance?
Post Media’s Canada.com recently reported: “Canada must prepare for diplomatic water wars with the U.S., as demand on both sides of the border grows for this vital but ultimately limited resource, says Gary Doer, Canadian ambassador to the United States.”
He said the problem is so pressing that in five years it will make other public debates look “silly.”
