Last week I traveled with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Mark Mattson, from Wolfe Island to Toronto in the Angus Bruce. As we approached downtown Toronto we saw a thick line of brown sludge in the lake that went on for miles. To our shock the city had illegally dumped raw sewage into the lake. Amongst the raw sewage was used condoms and tampons… it was disgusting and heartbreaking. I cut a short video which is on facebook (10,000 views and counting). Above is the video and a follow up video by Mark below.
FOLLOW UP: 3 days since posting this video which has over 14,000 views on Facebook, the Toronto Sun did a piece on the issue. The City of Toronto continues to deny it’s role but… we’re making inroads.
