Citizens of Toledo approve the Lake Erie Bill of Rights

The February 2019 newsletter contained an article about the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR). The whole idea was to allow the people of Toledo, Ohio to vote to give the Lake Erie watershed the same rights as the citizens who live in that watershed-most of whom do not live in Toledo. If the citizens of Toledo voted for this agreement, all the citizens and all the land in the 36 Ohio counties (of 88 counties total) just south of Lake Erie would be held hostage by anyone in Toledo who wished to object to some aspect of how the other citizens treated the environment.

Sadly the citizens in Toledo did indeed pass this agreement. To read more about this egregious agreement and the pending lawsuit pushing back against it, click on this link.
