How secure is Canada’s water? What are the greatest threats we face? And what should be our priorities for management and conservation? Join researchers from UBC’s Program on Water Governance and invited experts on February 17, 7:30-9:30pm at the Vancouver Convention Centre for a panel discussion on these issues.
