Is Canada willing to take the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence protection as seriously as the Americans?

To kick-start this process, the collaborative partners are calling on Environment Minister Catherine McKenna to create an Independent Panel of Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Stakeholders with representation from cities, industry and the environmental sector from Quebec and Ontario.

A delegation of mayors, environmental organizations, business associations, and conservation, habitat and fishery advocates, is in Ottawa this week to propose a new collaborative approach to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna and to promote it with other federal ministers and elected officials of every political stripe.
