In honour of World Water Day, we thought we should share a few quotes to remind ourselves just how lucky we are to live in a country with an abundance of H2O.

thank you so much!

Water is an important element of life. Without it there would be no people, animals, plants. Even microscopic bacteria simply cannot survive without this amazing liquid. But it’s good that there is more than enough water on the planet.
…and most of it is polluted!
thank you for these quotes. I searched for them a lot and finally, I could find them!
Water is one of the main things on this planet to live without water life is not really possible water is even needed by the small microorganism.
Canada is not steward to one-fifth of Earth’s fresh water. That is true only if if you qualify it as liquid, fresh surface water. Icecaps and fresh groundwater ‘muddy the waters’. In terms of liquid fresh water, groundwater alone far exceeds the liquid fresh water found on Earth’s surface. Canada does not have anywhere near 20% of Earth’s fresh groundwater.
These water quotes are so powerful and meaningful I love them!
Scientifically proven , and practical quotes. So true, I love them.
Such great quote! Water is vital
