George Weeks: Snyder pushes more links

(Continued)

A Mackinac Summit

While Snyder delivered his message in abbreviated form and took questions at the Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners near Battle Creek, he also took questions from remote locations where the message was viewed, including the Michigan Land Use Institute in Traverse City.

Snyder, who is incoming co-chair of the Council of Great Lakes Governors along with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, said he is inviting the governors and their Canadian counterparts to have a summit conference on Mackinac Island.

He said, "there is no state whose future is more intertwined with the Lakes than ours. "¦there's no better place to be reminded of how important this work is than on that beautiful island."
