POLIS Water Act Modernization Submission 2

March 2011

This position paper is the formal response of University of Victoria’s POLIS Project on Ecological Governance to the government's Policy Proposal on British Columbia's New Water Sustainability Act (December 2010). POLIS acknowledges that the policy proposal offers a number of promising new directions. However, the analysis also suggests that a number of critical aspects have been overlooked. These include: protection of environmental flows, an allocation system that embeds the public trust, shared watershed governance, and accountability and oversight.
