Manitoba's senior MP Shelly Glover today committed nearly $1 million in federal funding to be used in 16 projects aimed at cleaning up Lake Winnipeg.
Glover said the funding is in addition to almost $5 million previously earmarked by Ottawa for the Lake Winnipeg Basin Stewardship Fund and 59 projects already being conducted.
The majority of the conservation projects, scattered around the province, are aimed at reducing the amount of phosphorus entering the lake, and the growth of blue-green algae.
