The World

November 06, 1987

Saying that Canada is no longer a water-rich nation, Environment Minister Tom McMillan rejected plans for large-scale water diversions to the United States. The best known of these plans, known as the Grand Canal scheme, would send water from James Bay in northern Canada through the Great Lakes and as far south as Mexico. The second plan, developed by the Pasadena-based Ralph M. Parsons Co., envisions diverting water from Arctic rivers east across Canada's prairie provinces and south into the midwestern United States.
