Shout-Out: Blood & Water: Resource Wars of the Near Future Edited by Hayden Trenholm

I've got another Canadian anthology for you, this time dealing with SF themes.

Conflicts over resources are as old as human history. Climate change, along with continued population expansion and changes to the world economic order, adds a significant new factor to the equation. We can live without diamonds and gold, we can even find alternatives to oil, but water, food, land, and air are irreplaceable.
Showcasing Canadian Tales of conflict and cooperation, peril and promise, Blood & Water presents an impressive collection of writers representing every region of the country whose stories are set from coast to coast to coast.
