If you are planning to be on the water this weekend, Kenora O.P.P. Detachment Commander, Inspector Jeff Duggan has some tips. “We encourage everybody to boat safely. Don’t drink and boat. Make sure you’re wearing your life jacket at all times when you’re in the boat. If you’re fishing, I know the MNR will also be out this weekend, so make sure you are abiding by all the rules and regulations, when it comes to fishing.”


Duggan adds that rules for the Stay at Home order are the same on the water. “Make sure you’re not gathering with other boats from other households. There’s still that rule that applies and we will be out on marine patrol, checking for those that have maybe circumvented essential travel, or the stay at home order.”
