Join us on Day 3 for a lively panel discussion on whether or not we're on course for a water crisis in Ontario. Hosted by Steve Paikin, TVO's anchor and senior editor of
The Agenda, the panel will include a commercial water bottler, environmental watchdog, a member of the Indigenous community, and scientists.
Water issues are complicated and polarize communities. Should we be concerned that there won't be enough water to support all our needs now and into the future? How do we prioritize?
This promises to be a lively discussion as our panel of experts educate delegates on water takings in Ontario and explores some of the key issues around water takings.
After the Symposium wrap-up, you are welcome to stay and chat with the panelists. In addition, two of Steve Paikin's books will be available for purchase and Steve will be available to sign and personalize your copy.
