This week in the Great Lakes Town Hall – Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Gord Miller – Join the discussion online!

This week, the Town Hall is pleased to welcome Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Gord Miller.  Commissioner Miller was appointed in 2000 to oversee the implementation of the Environmental Bill of Rights. He recently partnered with Pollution Probe to host a series of public events on the future of the Great Lakes in Kingston, Windsor, Hamilton, Thunder Bay, and Toronto, Canada.  About 500 Great Lakes stakeholders and citizens in Ontario participated in these roundtables and public forums.  Don't miss your chance to read and respond to Commissioner Miller's Great Lakes perspectives every day this week - only in the Great Lakes Town Hall!

In addition to guest speakers, the Great Lakes Town Hall focuses on a new featured Great Lakes issue each week, provided by co-moderators Jeffrey Potter, Dave Dempsey and Gary Wilson. This week, Gary pits Lake Michigan vs. the Pacific Ocean in light of the recent competition to host the 2012 Summer Olympics. Don't miss this great opportunity to read and comment on our featured issue - Lake Michigan vs. the Pacific Ocean - and the thoughts of Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Gord Miller, in the Great Lakes Town Hall.
