St. Lawrence River, USA - Joe Lazore
Great Lakes Forum (2016)
Joe used to live all along the St. Lawrence River – in Akwesasne (New York), in Quebec, and in Ontario. He grew up swimming and fishing in the river, and learned how to hunt and trap along the river. But he's seen the effects that industry has had on the river's health. Joe hopes that the pollution that is now found in the river will get cleaned up so the "No Fishing" signs will be removed and the water will be potable again.
