We need to make sure the Act is strong enough to protect the Great Lakes’ wild species and human inhabitants from current and future stresses. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stop polluting and to start restoring the source of drinking water for 80 per cent of Ontarians.
Help us make sure the Act is really great!
