Update: The Ontario government is going ahead with its proposal to allow cormorant hunting and to let hunters kill double-crested cormorants and leave their carcasses where they lay to rot. Provisions in Bill 138, the Plan to Build Ontario Together Act, which has just passed first reading in the legislature, include exemptions to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, that allow for the abandoning of killed cormorants.

Your insurance rates may be going up. With the more extreme storms that come with our changing climate, our cottages are suffering more damage. Insurance companies are responding to increased claims by raising rates, deductibles, or both.

They used to be called 100-year storms, or 500-year flooding, or once-in-a-lifetime weather events. These days, however, extreme weather, whether torrential rains, rampaging wildfires, or wild winds, are making the extraordinary, well, ordinary.

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.
