Protecting the Great Lakes
The Ontario government is investing $6 million to support 30 multi-year projects to help protect, conserve and restore the Great Lakes. These investments will help reduce plastic litter, excess nutrients and road salt entering lakes, rivers and streams, advance climate resiliency, and make significant progress on restoring environmentally degraded areas of the Great Lakes.
In Simcoe-Grey, Collingwood’s harbour is a shining example of how a once heavy industrial area can transition to a cleaned up recreational playground for many water-related activities. This was once a shipyard, now one of the province’s most popular waterfront recreational destinations.
Last night, the Toronto Brigantine Inc. sail-training vessels Pathfinder and Playfair sailed into the harbour, surrounded by recreational boaters, paddle boarders, rowers and the Huronic sightseeing boat on its sunset cruise. The shoreline and waterfront trails were busy with hikers, bikers and people out for an evening stroll. A busy, healthy harbour, on Georgian Bay – Nottawasaga Bay.
