When it comes to water, issues of borders come into question. One demonstrative example from the videos we viewed this week was the vast quantities of water that Canada has per citizen compared to many other countries in the world. What responsibility do water-rich countries have to redistribute their supplies to other, less-water rich countries? And is any sort of redistribution simply a band-aid solution that increases dependence of less-developed countries on developed countries? For many years, Nestle was taking groundwater from Canada and then selling it for a profit in other countries - this was happening when there were still communities in Canada, often Indigenous, that did not have a safe water supply.
I envision a world where all countries have the ability to provide a safe and continuous water supply to their population, without having to be in debt to more water-rich countries or corporations. The only way I can see this happening is if corporations and governments cease to benefit off of water-insecurity, and redistribution of water happens in the public sector, not private.
