St Lawrence Shipping Remains Open but Hydro Race Called Off

For now the St Lawrence Seaway will remain open for shipping, but a local tourist event has been cancelled.

The second annual Nickel Cup hydroplane races in Gananoque have been cancelled because of the record-high river levels and the resulting floating debris.

The event was expected to bring up to 10,000 spectators and tourists to the Gananoque area.

The races have been rescheduled to September 16th and 17th.
