The allocation of powers of fresh waters quality protection in Canada and European Union

Abstract :

How living together in diversity? Canada and European Union are two legal systems presenting this type of question : the legal diversity management. The answer to this question is composed of the alignment of the one and the multiple. In Europe, it is achieved in the allocation of powers between european and national legal orders ; in Canada, between federal and provincial legal orders. Fresh waters quality protection in Canada and EU has been chosen in order to reveal the allocation of powers issues from a global perspective. The aim of this research is to go beyond an analysis on how are legal systems supposed to work, to emphasize their real way of functioning. The combination of the allocation of powers rules allows this approach in water quality protection. This concrete example reveals that there are similarities between canadian and european allocation of powers. The balance of these distributions of powers has been eroded, because of powers centralization caused by an effectiveness principle in this field.
