Countdown to the Long Weekend! FOCA Elert May 2013 FOCA

The Victoria Day long weekend marks the start of Safe Boating Awareness Week, May 18-24th.

Emergency Response in Ontario - FOCA seeks answers
In the aftermath of recent flooding events, FOCA has questions about community preparedness in Ontario. 

Nuclear Dump Site Proposal - Public Review Phase
FOCA is concerned about any adverse effects to human health or the environment, including Lake Huron and the Great Lakes, from the proposed long-term storage of nuclear waste north of Kincardine, Ontario, about 1 km inland from the shore of Lake Huron, and 700m below ground. 

Check 'em and Replace 'em  
Put these 2 items at the top of your long weekend checklist:

Important Reminders 
Don't move firewood. Drain your bilges!
Invasive and harmful animals and plants can hitchhike on wood, in your bilge water, and on trailers. To protect our precious forests, lakes and rivers, make sure you are not part of the problem. Learn more about invasive species and prevention strategies here.
