Water in all its forms is the essential ingredient to life. Fresh water is crucial to our survival in many ways, can improve our quality of life, and make our lives easier and more enjoyable. Because water is such an imperative part of everyone’s lives, we must all work together to conserve this natural and precious gift. "If the wars of this century were fought over oil, the wars of the next century will be fought over water." Statistics show that already 20% of the world’s population does not have access to fresh water, and Canada having the second largest fresh water population is the envy of many countries around the world. So, according to these facts the situation seems quite simple; Canada has a vast supply of fresh water so we should therefore sell it to countries in need. However this ignorant assumption is not as easy as it is made out to be. For several years there have been endless discussions on whether or not to export Canada’s water and divert rivers and streams south into the United States. Not only do these proposals make no economical sense, but they also would cause immeasurable social problems within the country.

"Ontario's landscape has fast become a battleground for developers seeking perpetual supplies of water for exponential growth in the future. We do not have the resources nor the ability to supply a whole water deprived country. What these people have to realize is that in order for Canada to make an adequate profit from selling water, they will need to charge prices that most third world countries cannot afford. Those who are in support of exporting Canada's water are under the impression that unlike natural gas, oil and other "nonrenewable resources, Canada's fresh water is quite easily replenished. The fact is exporting our water will just simply not do the trick. Ironically, the majority of our water exporting will be going to the Americans, who are known as the worlds leading water wasters. This poses a serious problem because it will eventually diminish Canada's control over its fresh water supply. Citizens of Canada need to work together to maintain and conserve our natural resource. Despite all the controversy over whether or not to sell out country's water, we are all able to come to the same conclusion. Saying this, only 9 of our total fresh water supply is renewable. This is hardly a high enough percentage to define our fresh water as renewable. However, the truth is that demand for water is forever increasing across the country and our supply of fresh water is far from endless. Why should Canada even think about selling its water to a country that is just going to waste it One very vital concern that many people are tending to overlook is climate changes that occur in Canada. Under the terms of NAFTA the United States and Mexico have access to resources from Canada.
