PLAN 2014 REGULATES LAKE ONTARIO OUTFLOW. IT IS UNBALANCED POLICY.
Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River suffers more injury than any other .
The Canadian and American Governments, through the International Joint Commission, must revoke the unbalanced Plan 2014 policies that both worsen and extend flooding in high water for Lake Ontario. They must be replaced with truly balanced policy that distributes injury and benefits fairly to all stakeholders.
We are United Shoreline Ontario.
We are a grassroots community-based organization with the mandate of uniting the residents and municipalities of the north shore of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River in one voice.
United Shoreline Ontario’s objective is to engage governments and private home owners towards the protection of lakeshore homes, families, businesses, emergency responders and municipalities from violent or wide-spread lake surge flooding. This flooding is predicted with the implementation of Plan 2014.
