Steven Renzetti, professor of Economics, co-authored the editorial “We need to value and conserve water,” which ran in the Vancouver Sun on May 18.

An excerpt:

Spring is supposed to be time of renewal, of optimism and joy at the prospects of hot summer days ahead. Instead, here in British Columbia, Environment Minister Barry Penner is warning us that insufficient snow pack and a dry spring may be conspiring to create potentially serious water shortages for some communities. This is a dire situation indeed and perhaps a time to take a serious look at what it will take to begin balancing our water budget and how we price this most precious of resources.
