Voices for the Trent-Severn Waterway

Voices for the TSW are a group of concerned residents, cottagers, business people and city councillors intersted in issues such as infrastructure repair, water quality and conservation, and economic and environmental impacts of the TSW on the surrounding regions. Last year the group published a report entitled “Its All About the Water”. They recently published Position Paper-Voices for the TSW and will be discussing this at an open meeting on May 30th in Buckhorn. You can view the meeting notice here: Voices for the TSW May Meeting Notice

Bears – its that time of year again

Every spring and summer our community is visited by one or two members of the local black bear community. Black bears are rarely aggressive but their presence can pose a real danger to both humans and ultimately to the bears themselves. To reduce the risk of attracting bears into our village, please keep your garbage in bear resistant containers and put it out the morning of garbage day, not the night before. More tips and information can be found on the excellent Bear Wise web site set up by the MNR.

If you do experience a bear emergency, call 911. To report bear problems contact the Bear Reporting Line at: 1-866-514-BEAR (2327).
