"Continuing the cooperative work under the Canada-Ontario Agreement reflects our commitment to pursue practical, results-oriented solutions to reduce pollution and improve the health and well-being of Canadians," said Minister Baird. "The quality of our water is essential to the economy and the health of our aquatic ecosystems." "The Great Lakes are a precious and vital resource for millions of people in Ontario and one of the most biologically diverse regions in Canada," said Minister Broten. "This agreement will allow us to continue to deal with the issues facing the Great Lakes, including protecting the aquatic ecosystems and to help us deal with challenges ranging from threats to our drinking water to the impacts of climate change." The COA will enhance awareness and stewardship of the Great Lakes by promoting greater involvement of COA partners and stakeholders in implementing the agreement and promoting the sustainability of Great Lakes communities. The coordination of monitoring, research and information-sharing will also be improved. [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on March 19, 2007]
