Manitoba Liberal leader Jon Gerrard is hosting a forum on Saturday to address the issues facing Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba.

Earlier this week, the Global Nature Fund named Lake Winnipeg as the most threatened lake of the year due to nutrients in agricultural run-off, sewage discharges and other factors.

Gerrard will join top Manitoba environmentalists for a panel discussion at the River Heights Community Centre on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Guests include speakers from the University of Manitoba, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Wilderness Committee, and a former senior biologist and operations manager for ELA.

The public is welcome to attend.
