  1. Well, I called the OPP and they told me they would not be able to deal with the situation, and that the Sturgeon Falls Police Department handles situations on small lakes in West Nipissing. So I called the Police and they said the OPP normally handle situations on lakes in West Nipissing. So, I'm confused as to what authorities are really in charge in handling a case like this. However, the Police Department said they would have an officer call me to discuss my complaint once one was assigned to the report. Guess I'm going to start building signs, rafts and potato guns.
  2. That is outrageous...I'm so glad to hear she's ok but how horrific it must have been for everyone. These 'accidents' must happen more than I even imagined...it's like a 'hit and run' and the only thing you can do is make sure the victim of such a 'crime' is looked after first and foremost. I'm pissed..really pissed now. Again, sorry to hear that this happened, but thank you for sharing.
  3. Oh my God, that is horrible! I hope she's ok! Were there any charges? I hope that idiot got nailed. What a terribly close call...I'm afraid this type of thing is going to happen sooner or later with the situation I have to deal with these days
  4. Thanks for all the help. I know what I have to do now...and the kids having fun is great...I'm sure they don't even know what the deal is..it's the adults being irresponsible and wreckless, rude, inconsiderate and not giving a crap about anything..they're just wanting to 'stick-it' to me and the other property owners. They have a sense of entitlement I suppose, as they're paying for they're campsite spot. I wish I could post a photo here of the lake where it's happening, but I'm not sure how. Last year they had speed boat races up and down, doing figure eights all through this area and I wasn't able to go swimming once. Most of the people who own camps here don't even go on the lake anymore and we/they are the ones that really 'care' about it's health and well-being.
  5. The great thing is, they're spinning around so fast that forensics won't be able to decipher from which direction the shot came from
  6. I appreciate all the awesome advice from everyone and I'm sorry to hear of similar situations. It just wrecks it for everyone. There are so many responsible boaters and water vessel operators, and at the same time there's so many careless and disrespectful idiots out there. . I had no idea about this SAVE Team and will be making calls right away. I wonder if there is an online incident report forum for these types of situations... And talk about big crap eatin' grins...that's what I got all weekend long for hours on end....I finally grabbed my phone and filmed the idiots whooping and yippin' and yee-hawin' and the wake crashing ashore, so at least I have proof. I'm sure they're looking for themselves on You Tube now, thinking they'll be scouted for the next big stunt actors.
  7. THANK YOU! I will get on this right away! I've beens so upset and really didn't know if there was anything I could do without being blown off as a disgruntled and bitchy NIMBY. I will call and email the MNR in North Bay as well in hopes that might stir some interest in the situation.
  8. Hi Everyone, it's been awhile since I've been here, but I'm hoping someone can help me out. I tried to enjoy a peaceful weekend at my camp in West Nipissing, but there was no chance in hell that was going to happen. For 25 years now I have owned 220 acres of property on two sides of a narrow lake (as narrow as the length of a pool in places) and have never experienced an episode like what happened this past Labour Day weekend. A few years ago, a couple purchased a small piece of land close to mine with the intent to build a trailer park. Despite the community's and property owner's efforts to stop a commercial campsite from being developed, the Municipality granted them permission to do so. Long story short, a few years later and a ton of environmental and zoning wrong-doings, where the city just turned a blind eye, they got their campsite up and running. Things haven't been the same for property owners on this lake since, and one of the consequences now is that our taxes have skyrocketed because of this bogus development. Besides all the down-sides to this, our little lake is now a mecca for many inconsiderate campers from the adjacent 'private' trailer park. This weekend a few of them insisted on blazing around and around all weekend on their wave-runner, towing skiers and tubers right in front of my property where I like to swim across to my other side of the lake. The wake smashed my little fishing boat over and over onto the rocks and I was unable to go swimming until they took a short break. I went into the water and they returned, blasted by me, knowing damn well I was there but didn't give a crap, and carried on buzzing around and around recklessly and foolishly, hollering and carrying on like a bunch of idiots. Like I said, the lake is narrow. The shores are rock. There's rocks just beneath the water, and there is a marsh basin yards away which was also being inflicted with crashing waves with their continuous circling. The skiers flew off a few times. These people have no clue what this lake is like or what is beneath the surface nor do they care...and because it's secluded they can get away with anything they want. What the heck are they thinking? One day there's going to be a broken skull and a bunch of blood on my shore and I don't want to be liable. Is there anything I can do to prevent them from killing themselves or me? I just want to go there and find peace, not watch and hear a bunch of show-offs wrecking the lake, the habitat and my mind.
  9. Hi, just letting you know I cross the bridge every day and see a ton of guys fishing down there! A dozen or so at any given time! Good luck!
  10. I too, honestly don't believe there's any 'intention' of ripping anyone off. I just wish people who make promises will at least try and make the effort to communicate, explain and make arrangements to resolve the situation.

Great guy and all, but I've been duped big time and it looks like others have been too. Unfortunately, just because someone is trying hard to do a good job, doesn't always mean they will. Honesty is the best policy. If you can't provide a product or service someone is expecting of you or paying for, don't take the money and run. At the very least, keep the lines of communication open, most people will understand if there is some sort of upkeep with contact to show the intent to come through with the goods.
  12. Way to go, Girl! Awesome catch! And the fish is pretty cute too!
