Ice Breaker Headed into Midland
From Georgian Bay Snowriders!
The Canadian Coast Guard advises that icebreaking operations will start on or about Saturday March 16, 2019 at Midland Ontario.
The attached images below shows the usual icebreaker route. Note that the icebreaker may deviate from this route.
The purpose of this annual operation is to break up the ice in order to allow commercial vessels safe and efficient movement into and out of the harbour. Residents can expect to see the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Samuel Risley icebreaking in the area.
The date is subject to change as activities depending on operational requirements or weather conditions.
