Leeds and Thousand Islands Looking to the Feds to Help Police the Waters
The township of Leeds and Thousands Islands is sick of wakes causing havoc to waterfront properties on the St Lawrence, so they are looking to the federal government for some help.
Earlier this week Council proposed the federal Ministry of Transport impose temporary restricted-wake laws on the river.
The hope is wakes will be restricted to no higher than 15 inches, applying to boats within 200 metres of shore.
This would last until the end of this year or until the river recedes 15 inches, whichever comes first.
The OPP are also now enforcing a 10km/h speed limit on boats traveling within 30 metres of the shore.
All of these new regulations are due to the record high water levels that are still present along the St Lawrence River.
Take that Piers Morgan! Honestly, who could have answered this crazy question?!
That is just very impressive.
In 2004, the European Space Agency sent a probe to meet the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It caught up to it in 2014 and even landed a module to analyze its composition. Here are its final images.
