Senators continue their examination of a Conservative private member's bill on transboundary waters. Bill C-383 aims to strengthen protections at the federal level to ensure that Canada's freshwater is protected from bulk water removals.

Canadian Water Issues Council representatives Adèle Hurley, J. Owen Saunders and Ralph Pentland express their support of the proposed legislation.

The committee proceeds to clause-by-clause review of the bill after hearing from the witnesses.

UPDATE: Bill C-383 received royal assent on June 19.
