All sessions on Thursday are free and open to the public.  Representatives from the Agreement Review Committee (ARC) will be on hand Thursday morning to discuss the ongoing review of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.  The draft 2007 Review Report documents the first major review of the Agreement in nearly twenty years.  Over 350 Canadians and Americans have been involved in the review thus far, and we hope to maintain this high level of participation in the public comment period.
