Old wa­ter or new?

Journal Pioneer - - EDITORIAL -

Robert Irv­ing has raised the is­sue of the mora­to­rium on deep wa­ter wells. The prov­ince isn’t re­leas­ing in­for­ma­tion on wa­ter. Peo­ple have the right to know if there is old wa­ter or new wa­ter. Old wa­ter is wa­ter that has ac­cu­mu­lated over time. New wa­ter is wa­ter that has ac­cu­mu­lated over a year or two. The prov­ince has to make pub­lic the age of the wa­ter in deep wells.

I wrote a let­ter to the ed­i­tor about De­sali­na­tion years ago. Peo­ple know how im­por­tant potato farm­ing and Cavendish Farms are to our prov­ince. Wa­ter is just as im­por­tant and the pub­lic has the right to know the age of wa­ter to make a proper de­ci­sion.
