Editor: Mr. Sugarman, Focus readers are curious about the new United States Chairman of the International Joint Commission. What particular knowledge, experience and perspectives do you bring to the Commission? R. Sugarman: First, I'd like to make it clear, I am not an expert on the Great Lakes. In fact, I didn’t know much about them until I began preparing for this assignment. But, since the beginning of this year, I’ve done a lot of reading—a catch-up course, so to speak.
