Update on Chemong Causeway fishing.

Recommended Posts

I posted a newspaper story last year about efforts to stop the pigs from throwing their garbage all over the Causeway while fishing and today found this article pertaining to the same issue & thought some may find it interesting.

It actually sounds like a little enforcement could fix the entire problem. 

 

If you want the program to be self funding, introduce grace period of 1 month, and after that month introduce a zero tolerance policy. You trespass, litter or whatever else, you get a ticket. You can easily pay the wage of a semi-permament by law officer if you hand out a ticket every time you see someone litter or trespass over the course of a couple summer months. In addition you enforce the parking restrictions very strictly for a period of time.

Once you instill the fear of god on everyone, people will start to adhere to the rules once again.

 

Whats the maximum fine for littering $500? A couple of those tickets i guarantee those folks wouldnt be throwing their fishing line in the lake anymore.

Since I'm local to this spot ... it will be interesting to see how this year unfolds with the new enforcement.

If it reduces pollution and makes the area safer, I'm in support.

Its rediculous how our government works in this province. The whole issue was no enforcement, no man power to enforce, and no money in the budget to provide the manpower. 

 

So, what do they do, hire a separate company, at probably twice what it would cost them to do it themselves, to do the enforcement. 

Brutal.
