Military Training On Ottawa River

It’s going to be a busy day on the Ottawa River between Petawawa and Chalk River on Thursday.

The military says soldiers from Garrison Petawawa will be on a special training exercise near Oiseau Rock and Sheenboro, using snowombiles, wearing uniforms and carrying personal weapons. 

All members of the public, especially snowombilers, are asked to avoid this portion of the Ottawa River, especially between Sheenboro and Chalk River, on Thursday between 8 a.m. and noon.

The military says all efforts will be made to minimize disruptions to the community.
