Thankfully, no one was killed over the long weekend with Inspector Ferguson of the Southern Georgian OPP saying,
“The fact that we did not have any fatal motor vehicle collisions/marine injuries/fatalities this week is a true testament to you all. In recent weeks I have received numerous compliments about our visibility in all of our communities throughout the Southern Georgian Bay area. Your ongoing commitment to public safety is very much being noticed.”
