On November 7, 2018, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper released its third annual Toronto Harbour Monitoring Report in front of Toronto’s vibrant waterfront community.
At the launch event Waterkeeper presented its five recommendations for the City of Toronto as well as a letter to Mayor John Tory outlining the importance of those recommendations. Sixty five waterfront community members signed onto Waterkeeper’s letter to the mayor.
The city is in a defining moment. It can embrace the harbour’s water quality problems or it can let sewage pollution alienate people from the shoreline for years to come.
