NewsBOAT SAFETY SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Thursday, Jul. 14th, 2016The OPP is reminding the public to keep boating safety in mind while out on the water. Each year numerous tragic and preventable deaths and injuries occur on Ontario lakes and rivers due to careless behaviour. A big wake can easily upset smaller watercrafts and cause property damage along the shoreline. Boating restrictions limit speeds to 10 kilometres per hour when operating within 30 meters of shore.
