The Great Lakes Water Quality Board just conducted the largest-ever survey of citizens living in the Lakes’ basin, and there’s unanimous agreement that we need to safeguard the water and it’s aquatic life. And crucially, Great Lakes represent a largely non-renewable yet significant portion of the world’s fresh water.

Listen as Dr. Rob de Loë (above), Canada’s Co-Chair on the International Joint Commission, speaks with Lawrence about his plans to work himself out of a job. His goal: Make fish from the Great Lakes completely safe to eat.
