According to Statistics Canada, almost three quarters of Canadians believe they use 60 litres of water for their personal daily use. The reality is that we use almost 6 times that, with the average Canadian consuming 328 litres per day! Canadians are among the highest water users in the world - second only to the United States.
The goal of ActionH20 is to reduce Canadians' municipal water use. By mobilising grassroots groups working on water issues across the country, we promote new conservation and efficiency-based approaches to water management that are adopted by local governments. This bottom-up effort has huge potential to change how water is managed across the whole country! It's time for ActionH20.

I like rock shows.
Okay, I mean, I really love rock shows. There is nothing better than heading out late evening with levels of anticipation (think Christmases of childhood) knowing I am going to hear heavenly blistering loud music. Jumping about in the lights from the stage watching a drummer count, bassist careen, keyboardist contort, guitarist scream and shouting out lyrics that I have obsessively been listening to, that is my idea of havin’ a time.
