Guidance for citizen submissions on the Draft Great Lakes Water Management Initiative and upcoming public hearing schedule

Preliminary Guidance for the Ontario Great Lakes Community

Sep 08 2004

The guidance document (linked below) has been prepared by the staff of the Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA) to assist those making submissions to the governments on the Draft Great Lakes Water Management Initiative documents released by the Council of Great Lakes Governors in July 2004.We have tried to focus our comments on issues as they pertain to Ontario. This Initiative is long overdue and has the potential to secure and sustain the waters of the Great Lakes in the future, if some crucial improvements are made. We urge you to take the time to make submissions to the Ontario government on these changes at upcoming hearings in September or in writing to the Minister of Natural Resources and the Council of Great Lakes Governors by their October 18, 2004 deadline. The guidance document provides information on how to comment and timing and locations of public hearings.
