Right to Water Position Paper

Access to clean water is increasingly being seen as a human right and a profoundly important civil liberties issue. The BC Civil Liberties Association recognizes the right to adequate supplies of clean drinking water as a human need so profound, and so foundational to effective participation as a democratic citizen that it deserves to be protected as both a civil liberty and a human right by legislation and policy at the municipal, provincial and national level. The Association believes Canada should make efforts on the international stage to see that this right is recognized and protected globally.
