If you are interested in water rights and access to fresh water in Canada and abroad than this week’s episode of 'Right of Reply' is right for you.
Tonight we are speaking with Professor Eleanor MacDonald who is an Associate Professor in the Political Studies Department here at Queen’s University. Dr. MacDonald will be giving us some insight into the privatization vs. government regulation debate on fresh water and will be discussing what this means for accessibility in the future. We also discuss some of the difficulties with mobilizing civil society to become serious about water issues and offer some of our own sentiments about why it remains difficult to motivate people around environmental issues despite a general awareness amongst the public to these concerns. We hope you enjoy!
