We thank those of you who have been active on this issue. Our combined efforts in this matter have made a difference. We have received a letter from Mr. Childerhose, Canadian Coast Guard stating that the following aids will NOT be deleted but will reviewed in the future (ie: - it's not over yet!):

We still urge your involvement in this matter. I can provide you with a copy of our original email for a background on the issue.

If you do not agree with this, send e-mail to Randy Childerhose of the Canadian Coast Guard at ChilderhoseR@DFO-MPO.GC.CA or phone/fax 705-746-2196/705-746-6953
Ask them to send you a list of all the changes - These cover the St.Lawrence seaway, atlantic regions, pacific regions etc. - We only received those relevant to our area.
