Blue Fish Radio: Ontario’s environmental commissioner talks algae, lake pollution and species at risk

Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio — podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.


In this episode, Blue Fish host and producer Lawrence Gunther has a wide-ranging, two-part conversation with Ontario’s environmental commissioner, Diane Saxe (above). They delve such topics as: industrial toxins that have haunted two Ontario indigenous communities, the reasons behind the blue-green algae blooms in Lake Erie (and why the government is reluctant to address the issue), Ontario’s approach to protecting species at risk and an updated environmental bill of rights.
