The RM of Lac du Bonnet has formed a Committee to look at Waterway Safety. The Committee is made up of 3 Residents, 2 RCMP, The Economic Development Officer, 1 Seasonal Resident and the Deputy Reeve from the RM of Alexander. The task is to collect information from the public and make some recommendations to the RM of Lac du Bonnet by August 11th. The RM of Alexander is doing the same as we are. Alexander has the bulk of Pinawa Bay in their jurisdiction. They will also apply this to Bird River. Both waterways are narrow and there is an increase in the size of boats over the last 10 or so years. A survey was done in 1988 when vessels like Jet Ski, Pontoon and Wake Boats were not around not to mention back then the largest motor was only 40 H.P.
The Committee is call the VORR Committee; a Transport Canada Term which stands for Vessel Operator Regulation Restrictions. Transport Canada has full jurisdiction of all Waterways in Canada.
The RM Council will take the Committee suggestions and decide if there is enough data to submit an application to Transport Canada to put some restrictions in place. That must be at Transport Canada by August 31, 2020 in order for Transport Canada to evaluate the information we provide and decide if Regulation Restrictions will be put in place. The process with Transport Canada can take up to 12 months.
The RM of Lac du Bonnet’s website has a link that will take you to a Survey. If you could notify all your members to go onto our website www.lacdubonnet.com and fill out a survey it will help us keep our waterways safe. You can also use this link http://rmoflacdubonnet.com/p/vorr
