“This week, the Student Senate passed a motion asking the university to oppose the Grand River Waterway Project. This plan would use state funding to channelize 22.5 miles of the Grand River, and proponents of the project say the increase in boat access would foster an increase in tourism.
However, many opponents say that there would be a swath of negative effects, including harmful environmental damage, and claim the limited influx of tourism would likely not counteract the taxpayer costs. In September, the Lanthorn published a Letter to the Editor from Biology Professor Eric Snyder, who passionately argued against the project.”
