"You should not pass the Act just because environmentalists support it. You pass the Act because it is the smartest investment in this province’s future that a government can make."
-- Waterkeeper, Mark Mattson
Bill 66, the Great Lakes Protection Act, 2015 was re-introduced to legislation to help protect and restore the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin. On September 23, 2015, nine organizations, including Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, gave 5-minute presentations to the Standing Committee on General Government summarizing why they support the Act.
This is Waterkeeper Mark Mattson's presentation.
