80% of the water coming into Lake Erie is from the Detroit River. The majority of the rest is from precipitation. Seems to me considering the natural flow of water, Canada should be looked at here?

You might see asian carp jumping around by then. It would be a good testament to the result of poorly thought out or missing regulations.

There's these things called newspapers now so you don't have to blindly speculate on things.

"The Maumee River drains more than four million acres of agricultural land and dumps it into Lake Erie at the Port of Toledo, according to Dr. Reutter. While the current algal bloom is mostly a problem of Lake Erie's western basin, winds can shift the blue-green algae around and cause problems elsewhere.

The bloom is thriving on all the nutrients flowing from the river."

This reminded me of that iconic scene in the movie Erin Brockovich when lawyers were served water from wells that the corporation they represented had polluted.

And not a few times, when Republican candidates will play a rock artists' tune at their campaign rallies, the artists will call the campaign to ask them to stop playing it because they don't want to be associated with the political aspect of it. You see this more often happening with GOP candidates than Democratic ones.
