Oil and Water

The price of oil in Baghdad is about 1.5 cents a liter
     it is almost free
          as is water in Toronto.  

The price of oil in Toronto dropped to 55 cents a liter 
     to bring tourists back to the city in after SARS.   
          the same as it costs for a liter of water in Baghdad.  

Canada is a nation of thousands of lakes full of pure, fresh water.  
     Iraq is a nation of thousands of barrels of easily-accessible oil.  
          Water creates life for vegetables, animals and people.
