The article presents a comment on an article about the dispute resolution and avoidance of potential conflict over waster resources in Canada through corralling the water hole in the 2010 Fall issue of the journal. It remarks that the author of article has little evidence to support his allegations that Canada is among the worst water polluters and wasters in the world and its irrigation system is a threat to the survival of communities. On other hand, the author of the article has responded the comment by presenting reports that Canada is second only to the U.S. in terms wasteful water use habits and Canadians score very low when assessing how much water they use each day as well as 70% of water in Alberta are committed to irrigation.
