The Fraser Institute: Media Advisory-Nathalie Elgrably-Levy to Speak on Quebec's Blue Gold at a Fraser Institute Policy Briefing in Montreal

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2008) - Nathalie Elgrably-Levy, Fraser Institute senior economist will discuss Quebec's blue gold: water, property rights, and the state, at a Fraser Institute policy briefing in Montreal on Wednesday, November 19.

With water scarcity making news in many parts of the world, the debate over who owns Quebec's water is approaching the boiling point. The Quebec government has put forward a bill to declare water a "collective resource", but will this prevent Quebecers from profiting from our liquid gold?

Join the Fraser Institute's senior economist Nathalie Elgrably-Levy for a spirited presentation and discussion about water ownership and trade.

Interested media are invited to attend. Please note business attire is requested at all events at the University Club.

Date: Wednesday, November 19, 2008
Time: Registration & Lunch: 11:45 - 12:15
Presentation & Discussion: 12:15 - 1:30
Location: University Club
2047 Mansfield St, Montreal
