The Town of South Bruce Peninsula is warning residents of a possible door-to-door scam involving water testing and the sale of water filter systems.

The town does not test individual water systems without making an appointment with the resident first.

In the case of testing, the only authorized agent of the town is the Ontario Clean Water Agency.

Door-to-door visits or sales regarding water products are not endorsed by the Town of South Bruce Peninsula.

If you’re like most cottagers, you like having guests. After all, welcoming friends and family to your favourite place in the world is one of the great payoffs of having to spend your summer weekends fixing the dock (again), cleaning up after raccoon raids (again), and dealing with that temperamental outboard — you know, the one that won’t work unless you holler exactly the right sequence of swear words over it.

Ah, autumn. The season of clichés. When you think of autumn, the same things always come to mind: pumpkin spice, Halloween, colourful leaves, and warm socks. It’s all just so predictable, and yet somehow still awesome.

Some traditions only grow stronger year after year, and that’s how we feel about the yearly rituals of autumn. Every one of the following activities will coat you in a thick layer of nostalgia, and you’ll love it. Trying new things is great, but fall is not the time for new things. It’s the time for falling back on the tried and true.

Matt at Environmental Defence Gala 4

Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.

I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission.  We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.
