The latest article by John Hartig of the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research likens Toronto’s rehabilitated waterfront to the front porch on a new home.
Toronto Waterfront Magazine asked Dr. Hartig, GLIER’s visiting scholar, to write the article about his work on the cleanup and revitalization of Toronto Harbour. He describes how Toronto has become a North American leader in waterfront reclamation, boosting its local economy by creating such a welcoming environment.
Hartig was the first PhD graduate from GLIER. After building a career as an internationally renowned conservation scientist, he returned to his alma mater last year as a visiting scholar. He continues to write books and articles, give talks, and offer his expertise to students, researchers, and policy-makers.
