Presqu'ile Provincial Park Preliminary Management Plan

[February 21, 1999: From Chuck Boyce, member of Executive for Presqu'ile Yacht Club, Brighton, Ontario]

Your response to this violation of freedom to navigation of open waters on Lake Ontario is greatly needed to prevent this from becoming enforceable.

Any information you could share with us in our fight would be only appreciated more by your direct involvement in this issue.
