Choosing status quo

Dear editor:

On June 16, the University of Toronto awarded world-renowned ELA scientist Dr. David Schindler with an honourary doctorate degree.

In accepting this honour, Dr. Schindler lamented that since his time at the Experimental Lakes Area, east of Kenora, Canada had abandoned its leadership role in protecting the environment.

More needs to be done

Dear editor:

We praise the federal government’s commitment to restore funding to the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA).

This is good news for science and for the environment. The ELA is the world’s leading freshwater living laboratory, helping to make Canada a world leader in protecting the natural world.
