Mes­sage for POTUS

Le Reflet (The News) - - ACTUALITÉS • NEWS -

The United Coun­ties of Pres­cott-Rus­sell (UCPR) has a mes­sage to pass on to Pre­sident Do­nald Trump. The UCPR sug­gest that the current pre­sident of the United States re­think his idea of can­cel­ling fun­ding for the U.S. En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency (EPA), be­cause this will have a se­rious im­pact on the condi­tion of the Great Lakes. UCPR coun­cil gave una­ni­mous sup­port, du­ring its April 26 ses­sion, to a re­so­lu­tion from La­salle town coun­cil to lob­by the pro­vin­cial and fe­de­ral go­vern­ments to contact their coun­ter­parts, south of the bor­der, and argue against EPA fun­ding cuts since al­gal blooms and other aqua­tic in­fes­ta­tions are still a pro­blem in the Great Lakes, and can pose pro­blems for tou­rism ac­ti­vi­ties like boa­ting, fi­shing, and swim­ming, and al­so af­fect the water sup­ply for some sho­re­line com­mu­ni­ties. Haw­kes­bu­ry Mayor Jeanne Char­le­bois ur­ged her fel­low mayors on UCPR coun­cil to sup­port gi­ving Pre­sident Trump a mes­sage “and let­ting him know how we feel.”–
