Last week, Larry Miller, MP for Bruce—Grey—Owen Sound, introduced Bill C-383, An Act to amend the International Boundary Waters Treaty Act and the International River Improvements Act.
“This enactment would amend the International Boundary Waters Treaty Act to prohibit the bulk removal of transboundary waters. Some definitions and exceptions that are currently found in regulations would be transferred to the act,” he told parliament.
The bill would also make a consequential amendment to the International River Improvements Act. This would protect all waters that now are not under provincial regulation.
