Creating smart water policy: Who gets to make the rules?

You are here

Our three-part Water Wednesdays series took place in October 2016 and featured local experts talking local water: from algae blooms to zebra mussels and everything in between.

Special thanks to our series sponsor, Desjardins Financial Security Investments Inc., to our guests – and of course, to everyone who joined us in Assiniboine Park for these lively conversations.

This video shows highlights from our Oct. 12 event, Creating smart water policy: Who gets to make the rules? Featured in it are guests:

  • Gordon Goldsborough, Chair of the Manitoba Water Council, professor at the University of Manitoba (Department of Biological Sciences)
  • Matthew McCandless, Executive Director of IISD Experimental Lakes Area
  • Paul Vogt, President, Red River College, former Manitoba Cabinet Secretary
