We have self-serving politicians that think nothing of selling off our state to make a quick buck for themselves. Latest example? Florida only has water to last until '13. The gov't just sold off rights to mine the water to a water bottling company in California. :mad:
Canadians are in the same boat with having rights to their water sold to the States. So basically may even be worse off.

The planet is made up of 70% water on the surface.

But only 0.3% of that is fresh.

There will be a major issue of this in the future. There will be water riots. There will be wars fought over it in the future.

Right, Botswana also has some serious problems, probably parts of South Africa too.
