DATE: Thursday, November 20th
TIME: 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Room B135, Cornett Building, University of Victoria
The panellists will discuss the complex nature of this international water agreement between Canada and the United States, and how its impending update will impact communities, landscapes, industry, and water supplies between the two countries for many years to come. They will also explore new views related to the environment, equity, social justice, the relevance of Indigenous traditional and local knowledge, and the economic and physical effects of a changing climate. By addressing these factors, a renewed Columbia River Treaty might prove a model for outstanding transboundary water agreements around the world.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome. However, space is limited.
