Devon Debate Question 5 - Time constraint 

Ask and discuss at every forum you get to and, try to make them all!

To the Conservative Candidate:-

In the last 6 months there has been 100 odd water allotments on the St. Mary’s aquifer system cancelled; being replaced by 4 corporate identities.

Inter-basin transfer of water is presently being used in Red Deer and Lacombe other basins on what is referred to as limited use.

Canada has laws against the export of bulk water and NAFTA covers all commodities including rain water and snow melt; dug outs and wells. On TV Pat Nelson was going to check with environment regarding a farmer in Peace River being told he didn’t own the water in his dug out and would have to buy it from the province.

The conservatives have surveyed the Peace River as a source of water for southern Alberta and engineered the movement of this same water in the Wetherford project, the work costing over a million dollars, done directly after NAFTA came into effect.

This project is capable of moving over half the flow of the Peace River south!

Is it your plan to turn our bulk water into a commodity so it will fall under NAFTA as does our Electricity and chain us to US prices and put us in the position of serving the US first as does our power agreement?
