IJC calls emergency meeting to talk lake levels

Lake Ontario water levels could be going back to what they were in 1958.

That’s if members of the International Joint Commission vote to approve a measure to suspend Plan 2014.

“My understanding is they’re going to introduce some agenda items, one of which is to suspend Plan 2014 and then go back to the 1958 plan,” he said.

Frank Bevacqua, public information officer for the IJC, said the commissioners will be meeting soon to discuss Plan 2014’s performance.
