Boating Industry Canada's Newsweek

Water Water Everywhere

There is certainly a lot going on this week in Canada's marine industry! We are pleased to see the Volvo Penta announcement of greater support for marine tech training. The Midland, Ontario campus of Georgian College and their students will benefit and that's huge for the industry.

We are pleased to learn that the Trent-Severn locks are now all open for navigation and the weather forecasts are finally starting to show warmer temperatures and sun, but we see the threat of thunderstorms.

Boaters wisely avoid being out in thunderstorm conditions and even the threat, cuts into our business. Also, more rain will not be welcome!

Last week we asked our readers to tell us if they were affected by high water levels and we got several responses. Hope your business is not suffering the financial consequences of record water levels but many are.
