Moretti is currently the vice-chair of the board of directors for the organization, which is a bi-national coalition of nearly 150 cities or municipalities that rely on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence waterway. The group actively involves local mayors in issues relating to governance, economics, and science, in terms of working with federal, state, and provincial governments to protect and restore the Great Lakes ecosystem. Moretti says he is deeply touched to have been recognized by his peers.

A press release published by Saint-Anicet on August 1 highlights the mayor’s dedication to the coalition and to the preservation of Lake Saint-François. Deputy mayor Anne-Marie Leblanc says the award recognizes Moretti’s “determination to invest in these issues.”

The municipality officially joined the alliance in September 2020. (SR)
