BBCA AGM Agenda 2017

Below is the agenda for our Annual General Meeting this Saturday at 10 am. I hope many of you are able to attend as we will have the opportunity to question both the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation and the Mayor as to why they feel that the willow trees/bushes should be allowed to continue to flourish along the shoreline preventing many beach activities from happening. I feel a strong showing will help immeasurably in achieving the goal of returning the shoreline to a place for quiet walking as well as other activities.

Town divided over plan to store nuclear waste near Lake Huron

KINCARDINE, ONT. - A moment of reckoning has come for Canada’s nuclear industry and millions of people who rely on the power source to keep their lights on.

For over 40 years, nuclear reactors in three provinces have pulsed with energy created by powerful fission reactions and it’s created a complex problem: what do you do with radioactive waste that stays lethal for 100,000 years?

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is the company responsible for managing waste produced by Ontario’s three nuclear plants – Darlington, Pickering and Bruce.

They say the answer lies in the sleepy community of Kincardine, Ont., where the world’s largest operating nuclear plant, Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, is located.

New Hydro poles/damage to property

You will recall that last fall Jody Larson sent us emails regarding Hydro One's power outages as they transferred service from the old poles to the new poles that they were installing.  As a result of the installation of the new pole on our property, numerous broken plastic shards were left.  My vehicle picked up a nail resulting in my having to replace the tire.  In my complaint to Hydro One, I was advised that if I wished to make a claim I could complete the online Customer Claim form with Quelmec Insurance Adjustors, which I did.  This past week while at the cottage I found 2 more nails

Souvenir History of Bruce Beach

FOR well over forty years the Summer Resort known as Bruce Beach on Lake Huron’s friendly shore has been the holiday rendezvous for health-seekers, pleasure-seekers and tor those who were just tired. From a very modest beginning the popularity and the population have grown by leaps and bounds. The need of having some sort of historical souvenir which would preserve the happy annals of the Beach had been keenly felt for a long time. It was not, however, until the year 1915 that the meeting of this need took concrete form.

A History of Bruce Beach

Shortly after the Bruce Beach Historical Society was formed in the Fall of 1981, I was having lunch with a friend. When asked why I had given up curling that year, one of the two or three reasons I mentioned was my interest in publishing history of Bruce Beach, where my family had been spending their summers for more than sixty years. "How fortunate you are to have such roots", replied my friend.
