The Big Picture
In addition to President Obama, the United States was represented by Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, a state that is desperately short of fresh water.
The Canadian group, led by newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, included Christy Clark, the Premier of water rich British Columbia that has already committed itself to the construction of the massive Site C Dam (shown in photo on right) in north eastern British Columbia that will create a pivotal fresh water reservoir as part of the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) that will deliver fresh water to California, other American states and parts of Mexico.
The Canadian group also included the Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.
Quebec and Ontario have massive water resources that are ready to be exploited by the construction of the Great Recycling and Northern Development Canal project that will also deliver fresh water to the United States and Mexico.
Both projects will require massive long term financing and a long term commitment from both the Canadian and American governments.
Both projects were stopped in the past by vigorous opposition from various environmental groups and the modern proponents of the projects have wisely chosen to move the projects forward under the protection of the Climate Change Agenda.
Also present in Paris for the Climate Conference were Prince Charles who has touted the wisdom of "water harvesting" in his past visits to Canada and Pope Francis who symbolically canonized Father Juniper Serra earlier this year thereby celebrating he legacy of the man who built the first aquaduct in California in the 1700's.
