    in the matter of storm water pollution . .one of the biggest culprits in my opinion is the good but ill informed citizens of toronto who insist on having a concrete or asphalt paved driveway . .which funnels all the storm water into the streets of toronto,thence into lake ontario .. ..instead of diverting it to gardens,lawns,trees,etc. . .the paved driveway may be pretty to look at,but deadly to the environment….also it uses up scarce and polluting crude oil to make up the pavement.
