SOME LEGAL AND POLICY ASPECTS OF THE COLUMBIA RIVER DISPUTE
AbstractIn order to illustrate how Canada is able to retain the full protection of its interests while allotting to the United States a proper share of the North American resource contained in the Columbia River Basin, the author discusses the basic view of Canadian-United States relations that supports his argument.

He seeks to illuminate resolutions notwithstanding these complications.
