Victoria, BC – BC recently gave third and final reading to a new Water Sustainability Act, a long-awaited overhaul of the water management and allocation regime in BC, which ELC Program Director Deborah Curran says is the “best piece of environmental legislation introduced in BC in more than a decade,” although the devil of environmental protection will be in the details of regulation. See her summary of the new Water Sustainability Act here.
See Deborah talking about the new Water Sustainability Act on CTV’s First Story “Muddy Waters” episode (from 17:17 to 18:49 and 20:31 to 21:09).
