annual meeting in Toronto on October 7th, 2016.

Toronto, Ont - Members of the Lake Erie North Shore Landowners Association attended the 2016 general meeting of the Great Lakes Commission (GLC) in Toronto last week. Founded in both state and U.S. federal law and benefiting from a unique, binational partnership with Ontario and Québec, the Commission promotes a consistent, coordinated and integrated approach to issues associated with the greatest system of freshwater on the face of the earth.The Commission also recognizes and promotes the complementarity of environmental protection and economic goals.

The Lake Erie North Shore Landowners Association (LENSLA) was humbled to receive a warm welcome by commission members, observers, and accredited experts. "We were glad to find such a degree of shared concern on many issues of relevance to us," noted LENSLA President Kyle Cronk. "The issues of effective conservation, erosion control, science-driven decision-making and dialogue were all issues of great interest to commission participants."

The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence region's output boasts a massive geographic footprint and is a major driver of the North American economy. In fact, the region would rank as the third largest economy in the world if it were a country, behind only U.S. and China. The sense of urgency toward the proper protection and restoration of this region was welcomed by LENSLA. "We were relieved to witness a consistent and ongoing level of concern that the realities of Elgin County are shared across the Great Lakes region in both the U.S., and Canada," noted Dr. Dominique Giguere, Secretary-Treasurer of LENSLA. "We look forward to sharing that message with local residents and stakeholders on the door step and in community discussions."

LENSLA is undertaking expanded outreach to stakeholders within the Great Lakes Commission. This is in addition to LENSLA's mounting efforts to collaborate and join other concerned citizens' groups across Ontario's great lakes' communities to provide an effective and meaningful voice to lakeshore residents and stakeholders.

"We look forward to connecting a large, bi-national organization to local residents and connecting local issues with the broader scope of concerns we share with communities and agencies across the Great Lakes in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Quebec," added Cronk.
