With the summer season in full swing, RCMP continue to patrol Christina Lake to ensure boater safety.
“Over the past week, several boats have been checked on Christina Lake. Quite a few boats were in compliance but there were 12 written warnings issued for people not being compliant with the Canada Shipping Act and three charges were laid,” explained Grand Forks RCMP’s Cpl. Richard Lanz, adding that the charges ranged from not having a boating licence to not having boat registration.
He also said that there were no life-jacket or alcohol infractions.
