KENORA – Four years after the former Harper government pulled funding, the Liberals have committed $1.7-million over two years to the Experimental Lakes Area.
The lake research area near Kenora includes several freshwater lakes and is used by scientists to conduct unique and important experiments.
Manitoba has committed $6-million over six years while the Ontario government already pitches in $2-million annually.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister joined Liberal MP Bob Nault today for the funding announcement.
The facility was nearly closed in 2012 due to budget-cutting by the former Conservative government.
