Save the Buoys Campaign – PAST CAMPAIGN
After much input and public consultation from numerous members of the concerned public, the Society, and various organizations, in 1999 the Canadian Coast Guard announced that it would maintain all but one of the buoys at the entrance to Baie Fine, as well as most of the navigation aids for the approaches to Little Current. It had originally planned to discontinue several local aids to navigation as part of a broader modernization program, and this was of concern to boaters and other interests in the North Channel.
Society members have been very vocal in their campaign to ensure that the waters of the North Channel remain safe and pleasant to navigate. These three articles are a sampling of the Society correspondence with the Canadian Coast Guard in 1998 when this issue was of concern.
