  1. Canada’s most ethical water dilemma in ten years will be whether or not to endorse and participate in the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) project.

  2. Renuka says:

    fair water governance and management

  3. Amy says:

    The most ethical water dilemma Canada will face is water as a basic right and the creation of a water market. Do we sell our water? If so to who? How does Canada price it? Do we deny a market if there is a drought? How will we justify the potential that people may die if we don’t provide them water?

  4. Whether to provide freshwater to the USA.

  5. Bruce A. Brown says:

    Effective intergovernmental liaison to overcome jurisdictional barriers and application of consistently uniform policies for nutrient enrichment, irrigation management and flood controls.

  6. In 10 years our ethical water dilemma will not be radically different from our fundamental dilemma today…how do we ensure the right to clean water for individuals around the world? How can water rich countries help water poor countries without compromising the ecological integrity of local water assets?

  7. The most ethical dilemma with respect to water will be explaining to our kids why there is barely any clean freshwater remaining – how we let it get to this stage? And why we let it happen?

  8. Jason Deveau says:

    In ten years, Canada’s most ethical water dilemma will be with regards to fair access to clean water for all Canadians, especially in the current context of boil water advisories, lacking and aging infrastructure and the increased risk of contamination due to continued development (i.e. oil sands, hydraulic fracturing, nutrient and waste discharge).

  9. Nathalie Stan says:

    In 10 years the most difficult ethical dilemma may be dealing with the ramifications that water is a human right. Will that tie us to giving water to any and everyone who needs it?

  10. Jennifer Jackson says:

    Whether or not to increase water shipments to the USA – whether in the form of increasing bulk water shipments or in products – in particular, to the mid-west states.

  11. John Smith says:

    Does the right to clean and safe drinking water outweigh the cost of providing it?

    Will the Canadian government commit to clean and safe drinking water for all citizens?

  12. David Johnson says:

    How should water be allocated? (Market-based, Rights-based, First-In-Line, Use-Prioritized, or Environment-first? Using devolved public participation decision-making or technical centrally-managed experts?)
