Summary: 

West Coast's comments on the proposed Water Sustainability Act.  It is crucial that BC have an act that lives up to the name Water “Sustainability” Act and we hope that the current proposal can be strengthened to build a statute that ensures the sustainability of BC’s water resources. Rewriting the Water Act is a daunting exercise.  However, we urge you not to be timid.  Your consultations to date revealed that British Columbians want an Act which puts water for nature and sustainability first.  The current proposal does not deliver on that mandate, but instead entrenches private interests at the expense of the environment and the public interest.
