With the warmer weather this past weekend, there was a high level of vessels on the waterway, especially near the Towns of Lasalle and Amherstburg, and the OPP marine unit was out patrolling.
A total of 18 charges were laid under the Canada Shipping Act, Fish and Wildlife Act and Liquor Licence Act. Seventy-five warnings were also issued during the three day period.
The OPP is asking the public to call 9-1-1 if they know or suspect that someone is operating a vessel while impaired. In doing so, you could be saving lives.
