The International Joint Commission Warns Of Serious Threats to Drinking Water Supplies in the Great Lakes Area

Dear Prime Minister and Fellow MP's:

The International Joint Commission has just warned about a serious threat to the drinking water in the Great Lakes area. As you are aware, this commission was “created by Canada and the U.S. in 1972 to restore and protect the largest body of surface freshwater on the planet”. As the Joint Commission significantly pointed out, the Great Lakes provide drinking water for 40 million people in the Great Lakes area.

Here are some of the major points just made by the International Joint

(1) “Increases in population, increases in urbanization and increases in factory farming mean that new treatment facilities will have to be developed in addition to what's there already,” said Herb Gray, Canadian Co-Chair of the commission and retired Deputy Prime Minister of Canada.

(2) Unless water treatment plants are upgraded, millions of people who live around the Great Lakes could face a tainted water disaster like the one in Walkerton, Ontario.That “incident demonstrated that even one system failure can impose enormous monetary as well as tragic human costs.”
(A few years ago, tainted water in Walkerton killed 7 people, made hundeds of others very sick and destabilized a population of around 10,000 who used the water.)

(3) This past summer, nearly 900 people reported gastro-intestinal illnesses after visiting a tourist island on the American side of Lake Erie.

(4) The Commission is investigating ozone treatment of the entire Great Lakes' drinking water. But it warns that governments need to protect drinking water from industrial spills; airborne mercury and PCB's; invasive species like the Zebra mussel; and anti-biotic-resistant pathogens.

Immigration Watch Canada makes the additional major points for the International Joint Commission and the governments of Canada and the U.S. :

(1) World organizations of scientists have urged stabilization and reduction of the world's population. This means the entire planet, not just population-flooded Asia, has to stabilize and reduce its population. (For example, despite these warnings, conservative estimates are that the U.S.
population will grow to 500 million by 2050. This alone will cause an enormous strain on North American resources, probably resulting in economic and political destabilization.)

(2) The planet already suffers from an ecological deficit. Like a monetary deficit, an ecological deficit cannot continue without major disastrous consequences. Conservation measures are important, but conservation measures without population stabilization and reduction will result in a continued drain on the world's resources.

(3) Despite environmental warnings from numerous scientific agencies, the governments of Canada and the U.S. continue to see no connection between population growth and ecological degradation. As a result, both pursue mass immigration policies.

(4) Immigration is the major cause of population destabilization in Canada and the U.S. It has become the largest factor in population growth in both countries.It is a major factor in the Great Lakes area.

(5) The governments of Canada and the U.S. have become prisoners of political correctness–especially that of the Canadian and American mass immigration industries. Both governments have allowed themselves to be duped by advocates of notions such as multiculturalism and diversity. In effect, Canada and the U.S. have placed such notions ahead of ecological concerns.

(6) The notions of multiculturalism and diversity pale in importance to the ecological well-being of the Great Lakes area and to the general ecological well-being of Canada and the U.S.

(7) These notions also pale in importance to the ideas of world population stabilization and reduction.

(8) As steward of the largest freshwater area on Earth, the International Joint Commission can help to lead the way in restoring ecological well-being to that area by advocating population stabilization in the Great Lakes area.

This means that mass immigration policies (which amount to the implementation of ecological death wishes) in the U.S. and Canada have to stop.

Best wishes,
