ELC Counsel Jason Unger on Water Quality in Alberta Panel Discussion
In celebration of Canadian Water Day last March 22, 2015, the Strathcona County invited Jason Unger, Staff Counsel at the Environmental Law Centre, to participate in a water panel discussion on the nature of complex water concerns in the North Saskatchewan River Basin as well as on the policy and legal contexts around contentious issues such as fracking. Joining Jason as panelists were representatives from EPCOR and the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance. The panel discussion followed the documentary film screening of WaterLife (see the trailer here) at the Strathcona County Council Chambers. The film is about the Great Lakes that follows the flow of the lakes’ water from the Nipigon River to the Atlantic Ocean. The panel brought the key message of the film into the Alberta context, particularly in respect of the complex water challenges regarding the North Saskatchewan Basin.
