Selling Snow to Eskimos OR Water Water Everywhere...

...but apparently we still need to import Badatz certified Kosher for Pesach water to Canada.

Canada has more freshwater resources than any other country in the world. It has hundreds of thousands of lakes. Israel is semi-arid and has water shortages that aren't going to get any better.

This is an example of losing sight of the forest for the pine-needles. And this passes as a chumra. I mean, I'm all for filters and what-not to make sure that chas ve-sholom no peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwiches come out of the spigot. But when it means importing drinking water to Canada, it just bugs (no pun intended) the heck outta me.

Chag Kasher (but let's not go overboard) Ve-sameach
