Half of the synthetically-produced chemical compounds that were found in the Great Lakes basin were chlorinated organics (MESB ). Due to the persistent, toxic nature of many of these.   Environment Canada Officials and stakeholders from the Great Lakes region of Canada and the United States met yesterday in Windsor to mark the mid-point of a year strategy to virtually eliminate persistent toxic substances from entering the Great Lakes basin. The Great Lakes Binational Toxics Strategy (GLBTS) has proven to be an effective.
