Great-Lakes-Agreement
(2008-02-18)
(wgvu) - TORONTO (AP) - A binational organization that gives advice on
how to care for the Great Lakes says it's disappointed and
frustrated with the federal governments of Canada and the United
States.
The International Joint Commission says it's been more than 20
years since the two countries updated the Great Lakes Water Quality
Agreement, and the process is moving along too slowly.
Canadian chairman Herb Gray says there's a long list of pressing
problems that need to be addressed in the Great Lakes.
The commission issued a report in December 2006 calling for
"bold binational commitments" and accelerated actions in
implementing a new agreement.
The Canadian government has since conducted its own review on
the current condition of the Great Lakes.
