"Making water the new oil"

Terence Corcoran on water agitprop at the Royal Ontario Museum:
... the demonization of water consumption has begun.
Also, "Water rights: All wet":
On July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution that declared a human right to clean drinking water and sanitation. The resolution was approved by a vote of 122 to none. Forty-one countries abstained, including Canada ...
... in recent years the Canadian government has led resistance to the creation of international water rights, and should be congratulated for its foresight.
... Good water governance requires good governance, broadly conceived. International water rights do not achieve this objective, and are likely to threaten the enterprise of protecting and providing access to water resources.
Naturally Maude Barlow and her meddling leftist ilk figure large in this.
