Francis Scarpaleggia

Member of Parliament, Lac-Saint-Louis, Quebec

Francis Scarpaleggia is a Member of Parliament (Lac-Saint-Louis, Quebec) and Liberal critic for water policy. He has made the protection of Canada’s freshwater a personal priority, calling on the government to create a national water strategy and ban bulk water exports.
